Frequently Asked Questions

What is HDMI technology?

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) technology is the industry-leading interface and de-facto standard for connecting high-definition (HD) and ultra high-definition (UHD) equipment, from HDTVs and personal computers to cameras, camcorders, tablets, Blu-ray players, gaming consoles, smartphones and just about any other device that is capable of sending or receiving an HD signal.

What are the advantages of HDMI connectivity over existing analog video interfaces such as composite, S-Video and component video?

Some of the advantages of HDMI connectivity are:

High Quality: Because HDMI technology is a digital interface, it provides the best quality of the video since there are no lossy analog to digital conversions as are required for all analog connections (such as component or S-video). The difference is especially noticeable at higher resolutions such as 1080p.

Ease-of-use: HDMI combines video and multi-channel audio into a single cable, eliminating the cost, complexity, and confusion of multiple cables currently used in AV systems. This is particularly beneficial when equipment is being upgraded or added.

Intelligence: The HDMI interface supports two-way communicaton between the video source (such as a DVD player) and the DTV. By using HDMI connectivity, devices automatically deliver the most effective format for the display that it is connected to, eliminating the need for the consumer to scroll through all the format options to guess what looks best.

Are all of the new HDMI versions backward compatible with previous versions?

Yes, all HDMI versions are fully backward compatible with all previous versions. For example HDMI 1.4 is compatible with the older HDMI 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3a standards.

What is the difference between a “Standard” HDMI cable and a “High-Speed” HDMI cable?

HDMI Licensing, LLC has announced that cables would be tested as Standard or High-Speed cables.

Standard HDMI cables have been tested to perform at speeds of 75Mhz or up to 2.25Gbps, which is the equivalent of a 720p/1080i signal.

High Speed HDMI cables have been tested to perform at speeds of 340MHz or up to 10.2Gbps, which is the highest bandwidth currently available over an HDMI cable. It can successfully handle 1080p signals, including those at increased colour depths. These cables are also able to accommodate higher resolution displays, such as WQXGA cinema monitors (resolution of 2560 x 1600)

I want to connect my Sony LED TV using your cables. Can I do so?

Yes, you can connect your Sony LED TV (or any other brand of LED/LCD TV using Lucido HDMI cables and play content from any HDMI source, as long as your TV has an HDMI input port built into it.

Can I connect my Xbox 360 E?

Yes, you can connect your Xbox 360 E with Lucido HDMI cables.

Can I connect my CPU to my Sony TV?

Yes, of course you can! (As long your PC motherboard or graphics card has an HDMI video output).

Will this cable work with my Windows 10 OS?

Yes, and with almost any other operating system (OS) too (Windows XP, 7, 8.1, 10, Mac OS X, Linux, and so on).

Can the Lucido HDMI cable connect with my laptop and home theater system?

If your laptop has HDMI output and your home theater system has HDMI input, this cable can be used to connect them.

Will this cable support 4K?

Yes it will!

How will HDMI change the way we interface with our entertainment systems?

The most immediate way that HDMI changes the way we interface with our components is in the set-up. One cable replaces upto 11 analog cables, thereby highly simplifying the setting up of a home theater, as well as supporting the aesthetics of new component design with cable simplification.

Also, the video is of higher quality, as the signal is neither compressed nor converted from digital to analog and back.

Lastly, because of the two-way communication capabilities of HDMI, components that are connected via HDMI constantly talk to each other in the background, exchanging key profile information. This means that content is sent in the best format without the user having to scroll through set-up menus.
