Automotive Connection System

Automotive video systems are increasingly popular, and car manufacturers have been asking for a way to incorporate HDMI connectivity into their vehicles. The HDMI 1.4 specification answers that need with a new, robust automotive connection system, specifically designed to meet the demanding requirements of the road while delivering true HD video to a seatback or dashboard display.

The new automotive connection system consists of two elements:

  • A new type of Automotive HDMI cable, designed for connections within a vehicle and tested to perform under the unique stresses of the motoring environment such as vibration and temperature extremes.
  • A new category of locking HDMI connector, known as the Type E connector, designed for securing internal connections within a vehicle.

Owners of HDMI-equipped vehicles will be able to easily enjoy HD video from their personal media players, HD camcorders, and other digital sources while on the go.
