For true HD picture and sound, HDMI cables are your best choice because they maintain a digital signal at all times. Other kinds fail to do this and degrade the image. Plus, HDMI handles video and audio for less clutter in your setup.
Do More with Fewer Cables
With the new HDMI Ethernet Channel,
future gear will use HDMI cables to access
entertainment online. And the Audio Return Channel enables today's TVs to deliver audio
over an HDMI cable to an AV receiver for authentic surround sound listening. Learn more

3D Movies and Sportscasts Spark Interest in Full HD 3D Home Theater
The success of Avatar and the 3D movies that followed have created a permanent 3D category at the box office. Now, 3D HDTVs, Blu-ray Disc™ players, active shutter glasses and compatible AV receivers bring the experience home. And not a moment too soon as cable and satellite providers launch live action 3D sports and 3D theater releases come out in 3D Blu-ray format. Clearly, 3D is here to stay...
A Really Quick Overview of How 3D Works in Today's Home Theaters
When you view 3D media in your home theater, your 3D HDTV actually displays two identical images slightly offset from one another in rapid-fire succession. The glasses you wear, known as active shutter glasses, alternate covering one eye and then the other, in sync with your HDTV. Because this happens so fast, it creates the illusion of a single, three-dimensional image.
Live Action 3D Explodes the Need for Speed
To get the 3D effect with live action scenes, it takes two channels of Full HD video where conventional viewing needs only one.
Suddenly, HDMI cables must carry twice the amount of data they did in 2009.
The good news is if you choose your cables wisely now, they'll perform to the full potential of today's Full HD 3D home theaters... and tomorrow's.
For Definitive Full HD 3D Video, Use What the Recognized Authorities Use
Given such rapid change in the world of home theater, it's reassuring to know there's a recognized authority, the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF), which does the actual calibrating to define what constitutes Full HD 3D and the various levels of video resolution, color depth, and frames per second so widely discussed.
In fact, the world's foremost companies and organizations in film and television, computer display, and consumer electronics pursue ISF certification of their technical personnel, consult ISF in their new product development, and strive to qualify for ISF licensing when their products contribute to what ISF sets forth as high fidelity video systems.
And in all their calibration activities, the ISF relies exclusively on Monster Advanced for HDMI cables. Moreover, only Monster Advanced for HDMI cables are certified by the ISF for use in high resolution displays.
So, if you plan on investing in a Full HD 3D home theater or replacing a 1080p display with a 4k x 2K resolution HDTV, ISF certification of Monster Advanced for HDMI cables signifies that the cable you buy was designed to transfer all of the picture and sound your system can deliver.
Future Proofing Made Easy: Choose Cables Speed-Rated by a Third Party
While HDMI cables can be designed for high performance, it's yet another thing to verify they do, in fact, perform. Which is why, unless the speed of the cables you buy is verified by a third party, you can never be sure they'll reproduce all the picture and sound you paid for.
Monster Advanced for HDMI is the only brand of HDMI cable speed-rated by Simplay Labs, the foremost testing program in consumer HD. And because they certify Monster cables under worst case conditions, you can be sure they'll meet the exacting standards your viewing experience demands. Plus, with bandwidth well in excess of what today's Full HD 3D home theaters output, the Monster cables you buy today position you to enjoy live action 3D sports and games on current and next-generation systems.
Exclusive Monster Guarantees Promote Peace of Mind
If the components you own ever demand more bandwidth than your Monster cable can deliver, Monster will replace it with a new, higher bandwidth cable.
