Collection: TV & video cables

The variety of TV and video cable

There are many different types of video cables. Some are more likely to be used in the living room with TV sets and game consoles, while others are mainly found near PCs. We offer a wide range of different connection options for your imaging devices. In addition to video cables that transmit image and audio signals from one piece of hardware to another within your four walls, we also have antenna cable as well as  satellite cable in the range, without which reception of television and radio (apart from any internet offers) would not be possible.

HDMI cables: true all-rounders

HDMI is probably the most commonly used video interface these days. Every modern television has HDMI inputs, all of today's game consoles are connected to TV sets via them, and the same applies to DVD and Blu-ray players, receivers and beamers/projectors. come at the same time HDMI cable also as PC cable used, although there is a strong competitor in this area (keyword: DisplayPort ).

HDMI comes in several versions and with each new iteration, the interface has become more powerful. Since HDMI 1.4 it has been possible to transmit video signals in 4K (3840 × 2160). With this older version, however, no more than 30 frames per second are possible. Version 2.0 creates 60 Hertz at UHD and HDMI 2.1 even allows, with so-called Ultra High Speed ​​HDMI cables Enjoy 4K images at twice the refresh rate as well as in 8K. The latest version also offers various additional features such as HDR10+ for rich colors and strong contrasts, VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) for a smooth gaming experience and eARC for good sound quality.

We carry HDMI 2.0 and HDMI 2.1 cables that are also backward compatible with the older versions. We also offer HDMI extensions and cables from micro or mini HDMI to HDMI type A (i.e. the standard connectors), with which you can connect smartphones, tablets, notebooks and camcorders to a large screen or projector.

DisplayPort for demanding PC gamers

DisplayPort is the best interface to connect PC and monitor for people who want to play in high resolution and with extra high frame rates. 144 Hertz in Full HD is no problem as long as you have installed a screen with a correspondingly high refresh rate and fast hardware in your gaming PC. DisplayPort 1.4 even manages this with a 4K resolution - and 240 Hertz in 1920 × 1080. This makes this type of video cable particularly suitable for e-athletes. In addition, it is possible to transmit 8K signals at 60 Hertz.

are with us DisplayPort 1.4 cable available, which are also downward compatible to the standards 1.3 and 1.2. They are characterized by high-quality workmanship with high-purity copper cables and safe metal shielding. A locking mechanism ensures that the PC cable is always firmly plugged into the socket, and the gold-plated contacts protect against corrosion.

In addition to the usual DisplayPort cables Our range also includes adapters from Mini DisplayPort or Thunderbolt to DisplayPort and from USB-C to DisplayPort . This allows you to bring photos, videos and other content from your tablet or laptop or MacBook to a large screen.

DVI, VGA and component cables: The classic video cables

VGA and DVI are video interfaces that are many years old but not yet retired. Monitors with the respective inputs are still in use today and for computers that are only used for working on them or surfing the Internet, these video cables are perfectly adequate. Both technologies not only support low resolutions such as SVGA (800 × 600), which hardly anyone uses anymore, but also Full HD and more. If you are looking for appropriate PC cables, you will find them with us. We also offer adapters from HDMI or DisplayPort to DVI to connect older screens to modern graphics cards.

Component video cables are just like DVI and VGA older technology. They are cables with three RCA connectors on each end, color coded so you don't mix them up. The lines are made of high-purity copper and are protected by a PVC jacket. Our component cable supports resolutions up to 1080i and is suitable for televisions, older game consoles and video players.

Antenna and satellite cables for television and radio

In addition to all these video cables, we also offer TV cables in our online shop, which make it possible to receive television in the first place. They are divided into Satellite - and antenna cable . Don't let the names fool you: A satellite cable (satellite cable) is not necessarily only for people who have a satellite key. It is also suitable for those who use the terrestrial signal (DVB-T) or a cable connection (DVB-C). The situation is similar with antenna cables, which are also suitable for satellite and cable television.

When buying, you should pay attention to the connections you have at home. Satellite - and antenna cable are constructed very differently at their ends. The former have F-connectors with a screw lock. The latter have a coax jack and a coax plug. What kind of TV cable you need depends on what kind of connection your TV or receiver has and what your wall socket is made of. However, we also offer a cable that has both a coax and an F connector. This is suitable for cases in which a device with an F socket is to be connected to a wall socket with a coax socket.

With our pure Antennas - and satellite cables you can choose from several variants - sometimes with two angled ends, with an angled plug or two straight plugs. Plugs or sockets that have a 90-degree angle are a good choice if, for example, the wall socket is directly behind a piece of furniture. They allow the cable to be routed along the side of the wall.

Frequently asked questions about TV and video cables

Which HDMI cables are there?

There are several HDMI iterations: 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 2.0 and 2.1 . Various cable types are defined in these standards, such as high speed or ultra high speed. The better the cable, the more powerful it is and the more features it supports. If you only want to watch TV and DVDs as well as Blu-rays, a high-speed HDMI cable from the 1.x generation is sufficient - especially if your devices don't have a more modern connection anyway. But if you like to immerse yourself in virtual worlds with modern game consoles, for example, you should at least rely on Ultra High Speed ​​HDMI according to HDMI 2.1. This means that it is also possible to play in 4K with a smooth 60 Hertz, provided you have the right television.

Which HDMI cable do I need for 4K?

For a sharp 4K picture is not mandatory HDMI 2.0 or 2.1 required. A version 1.4 cable already delivers this. However, if you enjoy playing video games and have a PS5 or Xbox Series X that can handle rendering titles in (although not necessarily native) 4K and 60 frames per second, you should definitely go for a more powerful Ultra cable.

What kind of cable do I need for cable TV?

Which is the right TV cable for you depends on what kind of connection is installed in your wall socket and your television or receiver. If it is an F-socket (can be recognized by the fact that it has a thread), a satellite cable with F-connectors is required. Otherwise use an antenna cable with a coaxial plug and socket.

Is an antenna cable the same as a satellite cable?

There are not major technical differences between antenna and satellite cables, but they do have different types of plugs and while a satellite cable has two plugs, antenna cables usually have one end with a socket. Satellite cables can be recognized by their F-connectors, which have a screw lock. Antenna cables are simply plugged into the appropriate connections and not screwed tight.
