Cable Labeling Requirements

The HDMI Specification now identifies five distinct cable types, each with specific performance characteristics.

To help ensure that retailers, installers, and consumers can easily identify the right cable for their needs, all HDMI cables must be clearly marked with the appropriate cable type name, as shown here:



Standard HDMI Cable Standard HDMI Cable with Ethernet Standard Automotive HDMI Cable High Speed HDMI Cable High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet

with Ethernet
Standard Automotive
HDMI Cable
High Speed HDMI Cable High Speed HDMI
Cable with Ethernet

HDMI Licensing Administrator, Inc. has created these cable type logos to be used in the packaging and promotion of all HDMI cables. They are designed to provide a quick visual identification of the cable type and help avoid any mix-ups. The versions shown above are displayed at low resolution, for illustration purposes only. To download high-resolution versions of the cable type logos, log into the Adopter Extranet and click on the "HDMI logos" link.
