Digital Visual Interface (DVI) is the standard interface for a high-performance connection between PCs and flat panel displays, digital CRT displays, projectors, and HDTV. The DVI-D Digital Cable delivers the high-performance, high-bandwidth interface needed for video displays of today while leaving headroom for the products of tomorrow. These precision-engineered cables are fully compliant with the DVI standard defined by DDWG (Digital Display Working Group). The DVI-D dual link configuration provides enough bandwidth for resolutions up to 2048 x 1536 and allows high speed digital transmission up to 9.9 Gbps.

Question: What is DVI?
Answer: DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface. It is a video connection initially designed for LCD computer monitors and projectors. It was later adopted by consumer electronics companies who wanted a digital high definition standard to home theater electronics devices. DVI can have both analog and digital signal components.
Question: What is HDCP?
Answer: HDCP stands for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection. It is a digital rights management technology used by content providers such as movie studios to protect their media property from being illegally distributed. Some DVI devices are HDCP compliant while others are not.
Question: Are all DVI connectors the same?
Answer: No, there are several different types of connectors for DVI. While they are similar, different connectors will have different number of pins.
Question: What are the different types of DVI Connectors.
Answer: DVI-I carries both analog and digital signals. DVI-I can be single link or dual link. DVI-D carries digital signals only. DVI-D can also be single link or dual link. DVI-A carries only analog signals. It does not have a dual link option M1 P&D carries analog and digital signals as well as usb serial information.
Question: Can I connect a DVI port to a VGA port?
Answer: Yes, if the DVI port is DVI-I or DVI-A
Question: Can I connect a DVI Port to a Component Video port?
Answer: Yes, but the equipment being used must be able to support this option. The devices need to be able to convert the RGBHV to or from Y, Pr, Pb. A cable does not make the conversion. It only adapts the connectors.
Question: What is AWG?
Answer: AWG stands for "American Wire Gauge." It is the thickness of the wire inside the cable. The lower number AWG denotes thicker wiring and thicker overall cable. Thicker cables are recommended for longer cable runs because they offer less resistance along the signal path.
Question: What is the performance benefit of Tin and Silver Plating?
Answer: Tin and silver plating refer to plating on the actual copper conduits inside the cables. The benefits of tin vs silver vs no plating are subjective. Each manufacturer gives arguments of the virtue of each method. Arguments are as follows.
Tin: Given that tin is more resistive than copper and the best conduit for electronic signals is copper, the tin plating helps to channel the signal to the core of the copper where it would have less chance of signal loss.
Silver: Given that silver is less resistive than copper, and digital signals due to frequency characteristics have a tendency to travel along the surface of the copper wiring, the silver in essence greases the track.
No Plating: Given that copper is undoubtedly the best conduit for signal transfer, plating would only inhibit signal transfer.
Question: What are Ferrite Cores and what do they do?
Answer: Ferrite cores are magnets on the end of cables next to the connectors. They are the bulbs you see just above the connector. They assist in signal transfer and can be found on many types of electronic cables.
Question: What does the "(N)" refer to and what is meant by "Net Jacket"?
Answer: The (N) is an internal designator referring to the Net Jacket in the product description. The net jacket is a nylon mesh outer covering on the body of the cable. It offers abrasion resistance that protects the cable and gives the cable a nicer, finished look.
Question: Why are your cables so cheap? Are they as good as the name brand cables the retail stores are trying to get me to buy?
Answer: Yes, the cables we sell are just as high in quality, construction, materials and reliability as those typically found in retail stores. We stand behind then with a life time warranty.
There are many reasons why we can bring you such great value. The main reasons would be as follows. Elimination of the middle man. We are a national distributor working directly the factories and because of this we are basically bringing the product to you at wholesale prices. Retail stores and national brand products have much more overhead including, nationwide networks of stores, distribution warehouses, large commissioned sales staffs, advertising budgets, packaging, etc. But the main reason would be mark up. Most retail work on a "Loss Leader" model of sales. They advertise high ticket items at great prices leaving them with little to no margin. They make up that margin with all the add on items they can sell you such as extended warranties, batteries, cases and cables. They sell these items with a very high mark up.
Question: What resolutions will Monoprice DVI Cables support?
Answer: They have been tested to pass signals up to 1080p
