HDMI Cable Categories and Classification

When we talk about HDMI Cable categories, there are two very different subjects we must mention. One category refers to the technical spec of the actual cable for example:

When we say that a particular cable is an HDMI 1.3 or HDMI 1.4, this means that this particular cable has been certified as a CLASS 1. In other words, it was tested at 74.5 MHz, and this is ok resolutions such as 720p 60Hz. and 1080i 60Hz. When a you hear that a particular cable is an HDMI 2.0 or CLASS 2; this means this cable has been tested at a much higher bandwidth of 340 MHz, this includes resolutions such as 1080p 60Hz. and 2160p 30Hz.

On the other hand, when we talk about Flat HDMI Cable, 4K HDMI Cable, Micro HDMI Cable, or Mini HDMI Cable, we are talking about its application category.

Flat HDMI Cable:  Are the same as regular HDMI cables, but with a thin, flat structure. They have become popular with home theater enthusiast because of technical and aesthetically features. Many claim they have less crosstalk distortion but, in general, they are just simply easier to manage in confined spaces.

4K HDMI Cable: When manufacturers refer to 4K HDMI cables they don't mean this are 4K resolution exclusive but rather they are a CLASS 2 cable that has bee test at  340 MHz, and the resolutions such as 1080p 60Hz. and 2160p 30Hz.

Micro HDMI Cable: Micro HDMI is the consumer name for a TYPE "D" HDMI cable. Thi smaller version of a standard CLASS "A." was designed to combine audio and video into a single digital interface just like its bigger counterpart but small enough to connect to smartphones, tablets, IP TV boxes and other mobile devices.  

Mini HDMI Cable: Just like the Micro HDMI Cable the Mini is simply a small version of the Micro, and it was designed to facilitate the connection of cameras, camcorders, tablets or another device with a mini-HDMI (TYPE "C") connector to your HDTV or Monitor
