How do I know if I need a DVI-I or DVI-D cable?
The type of DVI cable you need will depend on the devices you are connecting and the type of video signal they support. A DVI cable is needed if you intend to transmit both digital and analog signals, because of it’s versatility. However, if you only need to transmit digital signals, then a DVI-D cable is required. This type of cable was specifically designed for digital connections, and it won’t support an analogue signal.
What is the difference between a DVI-I cable and a DVI-D cable?
As mentioned above, a DVI-I (Digital Visual Interface-Integrated) cable supports both digital and analog signals, while a DVI-D (Digital Visual Interface-Digital) cable supports only digital signals. It's important that you determine the specific requirements of your devices to choose the appropriate cable before use.
What is the maximum resolution supported by a DVI cable?
The maximum resolution supported by a DVI cable depends on the type of DVI cable and the version of the DVI standard used. A DVI-D single link cable can support a maximum resolution of 1920x1200 pixels, which is suitable for most monitors and displays, though it is always best to check. On the other hand, a DVI-D dual link cable can support resolutions up to 2560x1600 pixels, providing the necessary bandwidth to handle higher resolutions; ideal for professional applications or gaming setups.
Can I use a DVI cable for audio signals?
No - a DVI cable is designed only to transmits video signals, as it doesn’t have the necessary channels to carry audio signals. If you require a cable to transmit both video and audio signals, you can use an alternative connection method including HDMI cables or displayport cables.
