What's the difference between HDMI and Component Video? What's the difference between HDMI and Component Video?
HDMI can send audio/video information to a device in digital format while Component Video must convert a digital signal to analog in order to interpret the information.
Since HDMI does not have error-correction, once information is lost it cannot be recovered. That can be a consideration when you need to run HDMI cables over a large area. Generally speaking, the shorter the HDMI cable, the less degradation and signal loss should occur.
Another factor to consider is that since digital signals are encoded in different ways, they require "digital-to-digital" conversions to occur. Sometimes "digital-to-digital" conversions can degrade the signal worse than "digital-to-analog" conversions.
Which is best for me?
