Today’s Eio post is on DVI.

Male DVI connector pins (view of plug)


DVI, or digital visual interface, is a video interface standard, meaning it is the standard connector for maximum video resolution for flat screen LCD displays. It is used to connect a video source, such as a DVD player, to a display device, such as a computer or TV monitor. DVIs overtook the previous standard for VGA (visual graphics array).

Wisegeek says this about DVIs:

DVI eliminates the unneeded analog interpreter from translating digital signals between digital components. Digital flat panel displays use a method whereby each pixel is mapped to a numerical value that establishes its level of brightness each time the frame is painted, which occurs many times per second. Inherently this is more exacting than CRT technology. When the analog conversion is eliminated, the result is optimal. If the digit “1” is relayed, the receiver will get “1” and nothing else. If sent via analog, the “1” might look more like .0952 or 1.002.

Each DVI connector has up to 24 different pins which link up to the interface. There are three main variations that the DVI connector can fall under:

  • DVI-D (digital only, both single-link and dual-link)
  • DVI-A (analog only)
  • DVI-I (integrated – digital and analog)

Today’s Eio post is on HDMI.

What is HDMI?

HDMI stands for “high-definition multimedia interface.” HDMI the most recent form of audio/visual cable connection, which offer richer and sharper audio/visual quality than their coaxial VGA cable-predecessors. HDMI cables resemble USB wires with the ability to carry 5 gigabits per second. Wisegeek explains HDMI thusly:

HDMI® is an uncompressed, all-digital signal, while the aforementioned interfaces are all analog. With an analog interface, a clean digital source is translated into less precise analog, sent to the television, then converted back to a digital signal to display on screen. At each translation, the digital signal loses integrity, resulting in some distortion of picture quality. HDMI® preserves the source signal, eliminating analog conversion to deliver the sharpest, richest picture possible.

HDMI supports standard video formats, enhanced video and high-definition. states that there are four main great features of HDMI: it’s all digital; it has high-bandwidth; it can support all variants of HDTV; and it can carry up to eight channels of digital audio.
