Title: The HDMI Cables Dilemma: To Upgrade or Not to Upgrade?

The HDMI Cables Dilemma To Upgrade or Not to
Upgrade? In the year 2002, renowned
electronic manufacturers like Sony, Philips,
Toshiba and Hitachi introduced High Definition
Multimedia Interface (HDMI). For those who
are unaware, it is an all-digital interface
that carries video and audio signals and
is backward compatible with video digital
interface DVI. HDMI has always kept on evolving
with various standards and protocols. This year,
a new cable connection standard known as
HDMI 2.1 introduced. High Bandwidth cables of
48G belong to this category. New standards in
HDMI, always bring up a common concern. If I buy
a new TV or other device with this
standard, do I have to upgrade your current
HDMI cables? The answer to this question is
mostly No. And at least with HDMI 2.1, you
dont have to worry about upgrading your cables
at least for the next couple of years. However,
there are certain scenarios wherein you
might have to consider buying 48G
cables. Heres an insight into
these possibilities
Running 4K Resolutions When it comes to
running 4k resolutions, new HDMI cables are a
major need. Computers have the
potential to send maximum resolution and frame
rate in the current HDMI spec. Also, they are an
exclusive resource that can handle any
resolutions in the upcoming HDMI 2.1
spec. If your computer is robust and you want to
connect it with a UHD TV, it is advisable
to go for a Premium Certified cable
as non-certified cables might not work. You
can choose to buy 48G cables once they
come out but they would be more useful
for a television that can handle higher 4k frame
rates. For A TV That Works, But Doesnt
Work While watching TV, you might have
experienced sudden flashes, blinks or image
distortions. This generally happens when
your HDMI cable is old and overused
(due to over plugging and unplugging).
The cheapest solution to this problem
would be replacing it with another HDMI cable.
But if you have a new TV that doesnt show 4k
resolution, you can spend a little more and buy a
premium certified HDMI cable. Thereafter,
such problems might stop occurring.
For a New 4K streamer, a console (with HDR) or
UHD BD player UHD BD players, superior quality
media streamers and consoles like PS4 Pro and
Xbox One S can give an output of 4K HDR. Check
the length of your HDMI Cables when you
connect them with the above mentioned
devices. If the cables are a few feet long,
it shouldnt be a problem. But if they are longer
than that, they might not be able to handle 4K,
HDR data. In case your TV is not able to
display HDR even if its source and content is
HDR, there might be something wrong with
your HDMI cables. The high-speed HDMI cables are
specially created to take care of 4k resolutions.
But that in no way means that they can
also handle higher data versions like or higher
frame rates. It is difficult to send high
resolutions to remote place. Which means if
you have a
15ft/3m cable which was compatible with all
your 1080p gear, there is a possibility that
it will not work with 4K HDR. We hope, this
brings much clarity on upgrading HDMI cables.
