Two common types of cable connectors used for display devices are HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) and VGA (Video Graphics Array) connectors.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)
Usage HDMI cables are commonly used to connect audio and video devices, such as TVs, monitors, projectors, and gaming consoles, to source devices like computers, DVD players, or set-top boxes.
Advantages HDMI supports high-definition video and audio transmission in a single cable. It provides high-quality digital audio and video signals, supporting resolutions up to 4K.
Compatibility HDMI is widely used and supported by most modern devices. It is the standard choice for connecting HD and 4K devices, offering a convenient plug-and-play solution.

VGA (Video Graphics Array)
Usage VGA cables are commonly used to connect older computers, laptops, or other VGA-output devices to external displays like monitors or projectors.
Advantages VGA cables are analog and have been around for a long time, making them compatible with many older devices. They are simple to use and widely available.
Limitations VGA does not support high-definition video and does not carry audio signals. It is gradually being replaced by digital interfaces like HDMI and DisplayPort.
When using these connectors, it’s important to consider the compatibility of both the source device and the display device. HDMI is more commonly used for modern high-definition setups, while VGA is still relevant for connecting older devices or non-HD displays. Always ensure that the cable connectors match the ports on your devices for a successful connection.
