Nowadays, thanks to a combination of special mounts and ultra-thin televisions, you can literally have a television in any room and when you’re not watching it, hide it from sight, assuming you are using an under-cabinet TV mount.
Anyone who has been following technology knows the current trend for televisions is that thinner is better. With each passing year, televisions become thinner than the year before. Naturally, the less space a television takes up, the more room it gives you in your home. However, at one time, the mounts needed for an LED TV were three times as thick as the television itself, which defeated the purpose of having an ultra-thin television. The new generation of Ultra-Slim TV mounts & LED TVs combines form and function in one dynamic package.

More often you might be seeing the term “HDMI cable” on flat screen televisions and computer monitors. “What is a HDMI cable?” is a question that can often be heard in various electronic stores and departments.
To understand what is a HDMI cable, you need to remember the old RCA cables, which usually had a red tip, a yellow tip, and a white tip. These three cables plugged into television sets and delivered both a picture and sound. The HDMI cable does the same thing, but without using three cables. It only needs one cable and it delivers superior sound and visual quality.
If you’re curious about what’s new about Version 1.4a HDMI specification, there really isn’t a whole lot of change to be found between Version 1.4 and Version 1.4a. For the uninitiated, HDMI is the abbreviation for High-Definition Multimedia Interface, which is a fancy way of saying that it’s an interface between an HDMI-compliant device to a digital audio/video device or monitor. It allows the use of a single cable to transmit data, as opposed to multiple cables for transmitting data and video and audio separately.
