HDMI to DVI Cable

HDMI to DVI Cable hooks up to your computer, monitor, or projector, but it’s important to look at what type of output ports your computer supports first. Most projectors and displays have multiple input ports. There are multiple standards of computer video cables. Three of them still have a spot on most laptop’s side. These are VGA, DVI and HDMI. See more info below.

VGA, or Video Graphics Array was first produced in 1987. Despite being slightly outdated, VGA is still featured on a lot of computers because it’s widely used in the computer and display market in terms of a computer video standard. VGA cables carry an analog signal as opposed to a digital one. Using higher frequencies, it’s possible to reach a relatively high range of video resolutions. However, video quality directly responds to cable quality, and doubly so on higher resolutions. Due to this, the quality of a VGA image can variate notable across different makes of cables. VGA connectors features fifteen pins spread over three horizontal rows and has a trapezoid shape. Note: The color blue is often associated with VGA ports and connectors.


DVI can be considered one of VGA’s successors. The connector is appearing more and more on computers and displays, especially on higher-end graphics card and high-resolution computer displays. There are multiple types of DVI connectors, with exception of the least used DVI-A connector, all of them work with uncompressed digital video. This means that the picture quality is not heavily dependant on the quality of cable. The difference is in the lay-out of the pins. DVI-D is characterised by the single flat blade on one side of the connector, showing no pins above or below the blade. DVI-D is for the sole transmission of digital video. DVI-I looks very similar to DVI-D, but does have four pins surrounding the flat blade. These pins carry an analog signal, for compatibility with the VGA standard. This makes DVI-I connectors able to carry a digital and analog signal. DVI-D and DVI-I connectors come in two additional styles. Single-link; misses a section of pins in the middle of the connector. Dual-link connectors feature a single block of pins (three times eight), which allows to reach much higher resolutions.


If DVI is the successor to VGA, HDMI is a possible successor to DVI. DVI is almost always located on high definition televisions and so is HDMI. Thanks to this compatibility with newer t.v.s, and its compact size compared to DVI, the HDMI connector is increasingly showing up in computers and computer displays as well. HDMI, like DVI, is designed for the digital transmission of uncompressed data. However, besides a video signal, HDMI can also carry up to eight channels of compressed or uncompressed digital audio.
