High Definition Media Interface is a beautiful thing. Back when 1080P meant something, the HDMI spec entered the scene as an upgrade on the legacy trio or quintet of RCA cables.

The digital revolution after the turn of the century allowed for a more straightforward installation with a less cluttered and accident-prone connection scheme. HDMI also helped us integrate our computers and more advanced gaming systems with our televisions.
