HDMI Cable Price in Nigeria
HDMI means the device is a fully High-Definition Multimedia Interface, a standard for simultaneously transmitting full digital video and audio from a top source, such as a computer or TV cable box, to a computer monitor, TV or any projector.
Originally developed by a consortium of electronics manufacturers, it has been very widely adopted with almost all televisions and computer monitors supporting the interface.
The goal of the HDMI initiative back in 2002 was to improve on existing connectivity standards (e.g. DVI, component video) by creating a new smaller connector, adding support for embedded audio and delivering a higher resolution video signal.
Such was HDMI’s success that by 2008, shipments of HDMI-enabled devices exceeded those of DVI. By the end of 2009, all HDTVs had at least one HDMI port.
HDMI cables have grown increasingly popular in the electronic world today. While some not only affect the viewing quality when connected to the computer or television, they also have one or two things to do with the overall output; hence, the importance of the cable.
The HDMI interface allows a port to send high-resolution digital video, theatre-quality sound and device commands through an HDMI connector and down a single HDMI cord, each designed to support a video resolution and features in the HDMI pub specification. HDMI connectors are available in three sizes: standard, mini and micro.
There are also different types of HDMI cable, and not all cables use the logo but the HDMI cable specifications should indicate whether it is either Standard, High Speed, Premium High Speed or at Ultra High Speed. If the type is not fully indicated, assume Standard.
Several versions of HDMI have been developed and deployed since the initial release of the technology, but all use the same cable and connector. Other than improved audio and video capacity, performance, resolution and color spaces, newer versions have optional advanced features such as 3D, Ethernet data connection, and CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) extensions.

HDMI uses the full Consumer Buy Electronics Association/Electronic Industries Alliance 861 standards. HDMI 1.0 to HDMI 1.2a uses the EIA/CEA-861-B video standard, HDMI 1.3 uses the CEA-861-D video standard, and HDMI 1.4 uses the CEA-861-E video standard.
The CEA-861-E document defines “video formats and waveforms; colorimetry and quantization; transport of compressed and uncompressed LPCM audio; carriage of auxiliary data; and quality implementations of the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) Enhanced Extended Display Identification Data Standard (E-EDID)”.
On July 15, 2013, the CEA announced the publication of CEA-861-F, a standard that can be used by interfaces such as DVI, HDMI, and LVDS. CEA-861-F adds the ability to transmit several Ultra HD video formats and additional color spaces.
Cables are available in male and female versions, with space-saving right-angled connectors and gripping or locking connectors.
HDMI cable is considered low voltage so you can install it inside a wall. HDMI faceplates give a clean, finished appearance and have a female connector on the internal side, making termination easy. HDMI keystones are also available for digital signage applications and large conference facilities with many displays that are fed from a central location.
Gripping and Locking HDMI Connectors
HDMI connectors do not latch like DisplayPort connectors but some do provide a spring mechanism that makes the blade of a male connector grip the receptacle and makes it less likely that the cable will be accidentally pulled out. If an HDMI device may be subject to vibration or accidental movement, use a connector with a screw lock.
Which is best.in-wall HDMI cable or wireless HDMI?
A cable connection is a relatively inexpensive option that gives a strong, reliable signal but can be difficult to install, it’s limited to one location and a distance of 25-50-ft., depending on the resolution.
Longer distances require an active cable or HDMI extender. A wireless HDMI extender is much easier to install, can be easily relocated and can broadcast a high-resolution video signal to multiple receivers.
Note: In-wall HDMI cables have a CL2 or CL3 rating. This means that the cable jacket is fire resistant and suitable to low-voltage in-wall applications.
Is there a difference in functionality between the Standard, Mini and Micro HDMI connectors?
All three connectors have the same 19 pins, but some may have different pin assignments. Functionally, they all support the resolutions and features of HDMI 1.4 onwards.
Can a USB-C Port be used to Transmit HDMI to a Monitor?
Yes. In Alt Mode, some of the pins in a USB-C connector are used to transmit other protocols. This allows the widely adopted USB-C port/connector to be used for more than just USB data or power.
To date, there are four Alternate Modes: DisplayPort, Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL), Thunderbolt and HDMI. HDMI Alt-Mode supports all of the features of HDMI 1.4b, including video resolutions of 4K @ 30 Hz and above.
I need an HDMI cable for my 4K TV. What should I buy?
Buy a High Speed HDMI cable that supports at least HDMI 1.4, the first HDMI standard to support 4K signals. To get a 4K picture, all components must support 4K: the cable box or streaming service, the HDMI cable and the TV. If you are using an old Standard HDMI cable purchased before 2009, it will not have the bandwidth to carry a 4K HDR signal.
Things To Consider When Buying an HDMI Cable
The most important factors in choosing an HDMI cable are:
- Connector Type.
- Resolutions of your video source and display.
Distance between devices.
- Special-Uses, such as installing the cable through walls or in moist or dusty environments.
