HDMI

(High-Definition Multimedia Interface) A digital interface for audio and video that provides a single-cable solution for home theater and consumer electronics equipment such as TVs, Blu-ray/DVD players and set-top boxes. Introduced in 2002, one HDMI cable took the place of nine different analog audio and video cables.
