Best HDMI cables for 3dTV – Options on certified cat2 3d 1.4

What cables do I need for my 3d television?

3d Generation

As you update your home theater system to the latest in 3d and High definition technology options, one has to pay attention to the details of compatibility and standards in order to make full use of your 3d home theater systems capabilities.

Although 3d televisions are reaching the mainstream now, mostly due to the craze created by Avatar and real3d, the technology has been easily purchased for the home theater market for nearly 3 years.

The ability to play at home 3d PC games has existed for far longer.

In order to take advantage of your 3d television’s advanced capabilities one will need cabling that can handle the new standards in audio/visual processing and transmission.

Luckily, the HDMI standard has already been updated to HDMI 1.4 which is a standard that is fully 3d ready.

 

Buy HDMI 1.4 3d cables

Options in HDMI 1.4 cables

HDMI cables have two standards within the HDMI protocol – Category 1 and Category 2 – both are fully capable of transmitting 3d information to your 3d ready television.

Category 1 is marketed as ‘Standard”

Category 2 is marketed as “High Speed”

The main distinction will involve the length of the cable you require – if it exceeds 15 feet, purchase a category 2 hdmi 1.4 cable for best resolution on your 3d television equipment.

For true 1080p resolution on your TV it is best practice to buy a name brand product that is marketed as high speed. Cheap cables can often fall below the standard they claim. Considering the cost of a full 3d home theater system it is unwise to get cheap when it comes to your cable options.
