    What is HDMI Used For?

    HDMI being a proprietary audio/video transmission interface, is used for transmission of digital signals to and from HDMI compliant devices. It is used for building a common media between the audio/video devices. Common applications of HDMI are found in video projectors, set-top boxes, digital television, audio/video receivers, high-definition video transmission multi-channels, DSLR camera, video editing media, and many more. 

    What is an HDMI Converter?

    HDMI stands for High-Definition Multimedia Interface. HDMI converters are basically devices that can convert signals from one format to HDMI or vice versa. The HDMI converters are used to connect a non-HDMI source and an HDMI display.
    HDMI converter basically acts as an intermediate transmission device that allows two networking devices to communicate despite differences in their data formats. HDMI converters can act as HDMI to DVI, HDMI to VGA, HDMI to fiber converter, and many more types of signal converters within an HDMI transmitter & receiver ecosystem. The HDMI signals are transmitted over the High Definition Content Protection (HDCP) protocol, therefore, HDMI signal conversion is important if the video signal is to be transmitted via non-HDMI compliant transmitter/cable. Generally, HDMI audio/video signals have transmission limitations. When it comes to long-distance video signal transmission, Ethernet/Fiber optics is considered a suitable transmission media. Therefore, HDMI converters are used to convert HDMI signals to Ethernet compliant data format.
    In order to transmit HDMI signals via Ethernet cables, the HDMI-Ethernet channel is created. This HDMI-Ethernet channel ensures signal transmission between the HDMI video transmitter and receiver. HDMI to fiber/Ethernet data format conversion is a feature of HDMI transmission cable itself. It develops an HDMI Ethernet channel via which the HDMI signal is transmitted in the form of VGA signals. Ethernet-enabled HDMI cables possess HDMI converters as an integrated entity that permits Ethernet cables to act as HDMI video transmitters.
    The utmost compatibility with the HDMI-Ethernet channel is offered by the latest version of HDMI video transmitter cable version 1.4. The HDMI 1.4 is a backward compatible cable that suits for all the older technologies and Ethernet transmission formats.
    At VERSITRON, we offer premium quality HDMI converters which are used in several industrial applications for high definition video transmission.

    Workings of HDMI Video Transmitter and HDMI Video Receiver

    Whether wired or wireless type, each HDMI system requires 4 fundamental components. A source device, an HDMI transmitter, an HDMI receiver, and an output device/screen are four fundamental components that are connected using HDMI cables to develop an HDMI video transmission system. In the HDMI system, the transmitter and receiver are connected by an HDMI cable, and the cable extender is used to connect the receiver to the output device. Let us discuss how the HDMI transmitter and receiver work.
    • Working of an HDMI Transmitter: An HDMI transmitter gets input signals in analog or digital format from the source device. If the signal is analog, then the HDMI transmitter converts it in the digital format. The transmitter is integrated with HDMI converters to achieve the format change. Once the signal is converted to the HDMI format, it is transferred to the receiver via an HDMI cable.
    • Working of an HDMI Receiver: The receiver collects the video signal transmitted by the HDMI transmitter. Further, the receiver is directly connected to the video display device. The receiver sends video signals to the display device or devices. In this case, the receiver can act as an HDMI video multiplexer if the signal is distributed to multiple screens/devices.
    The function of the HDMI transmitter and receiver only takes place if the source and display devices have permitted the transmission by HDMI-handshake.

    What is Wired and Wireless Video HDMI?

    Based on utility requirements, the HDMI technology is categorized into two types, namely wired and wireless HDMI. Both the categories of HDMI serve the same purpose of transmitting audio/video signals via the HDMI medium. However, the categories differ in several manners. Let us discuss two of these HDMI categories individually.
    • Wired HDMI Video System: Wired HDMI video systems is a traditional cable-based HDMI video system. In this system, the audio/video signals are transmitted by using HDMI cables and connectors. The HDMI cable acts as an interface between two different HDMI compliant devices in order to transmit data between the two. It works on the HDCP protocol, therefore an HDMI-handshake is required between two HDMI compliant devices. This HDMI-handshake ensures that both the devices recognize each other’s functionality and the transmission is permitted from both ends. It offers utmost data security during HDMI transmission as the HDCP protocol itself demands secured transmission. Wired HDMI video system is extensively used in digital TV, set-top boxes, digital cameras, etc.
    • Wireless HDMI Video System: Unlike the wired HDMI video system, the wireless HDMI video system requires no cable connections between two HDMI devices. This is a comparatively new technology. Wireless HDMI video system acts like Bluetooth for video transmission. It does not require Wi-Fi for wireless video signal transmission, however, it demands a transmitter that transmits signals at microwave frequency.
    Despite the wireless HDMI video system being the latest technology, VERSITRON focuses on wired HDMI video systems due to several benefits offered. Let us discuss why VERSITRON considers wired HDMI video systems superior to wireless HDMI video systems.

    What Are The Benefits of Using Wired Over Wireless HDMI Video System?

    According to our experts, the wired HDMI system stands superior to the wireless HDMI video system due to the following benefits offered by the same.
    • Wired HDMI video system is faster than wireless HDMI video systems. Wireless HDMI generally gives slight latency in device-to-device connectivity and also data transmission.
    • Wired HDMI offers two types of HDMI cables, namely standard HDMI cables and high-speed HDMI cables. The standard HDMI cable permits 2.23Gbps transmission speed and high-speed HDMI cable permits 10.2 Gbps data transmission speed. Wired HDMI cables offer better speed flexibility over wireless ones. On the other hand, wireless HDMI fails in offering versatility in transmission speed.
    • Unlike wireless HDMI, the wired HDMI connection offers data security and reliability. As the HDMI cables function in compliance with the HDCP protocol, the data is secured. Also, cable transmission is hard to tamper with but in wireless HDMI, external factors like EMI signals, noise, and humidity can result in data loss.
    Owing to the ultimate benefits of wired HDMI over wireless HDMI, VERSITRON offers premium quality HDMI connection kits with cables and connectors.

    Troubleshooting:

    Please make sure that the transmitter and the receiver are not used in opposite position

    Optical Fiber: The HDMI series is available for most applications using single mode optical fiber.
    Be certain that the attenuation and bandwidth of the fiber optic cable being used is within the range of the system’s loss budget specifications.

    HDMI Connection: Check that the fiber optic cable is connected properly if the screen of HDMI monitor shows “searching TX”.
    Please check that the HDMI source is connected properly to the transmitter if the screen of the HDMI monitor shows “check TX’s input signal”.

    Ethernet: If the Ethernet link is not established, please make sure that the IP addresses of the HDMI transmitter and receiver are set to match the customer’s network IP scheme.
