Mini ports are prevalent in small and medium size devices. An array of branded digital cameras, standard-size tablets, and camcorders commonly feature the mini HDMI connection. Some smart-phones, small projectors, and computer graphics cards may also utilise a mini HDMI connection. HDMI plugs and ports come in codified ‘types’ which indicate their size. If your device features a ‘type C’, it uses a mini HDMI. Larger devices such as TVs and gaming consoles commonly employ the regular size connection, termed as ‘type A’. Small hand-held devices frequently implement the smallest ‘type D’ micro HDMI connection. It’s recommended that you check your device specifications to ensure that your HDMI cable or adapter suits your device.What is the difference between a male and female HDMI?
The terms ‘male’ and ‘female’ refer to the HDMI plug and port respectively. The ‘male’ plug fits into the ‘female’ port. Commonly, outputs on media devices, such as Blu-ray players, and inputs on display devices, such as TVs, both feature female ports, and are connected using a double-end male HDMI cable.When would a mini HDMI to HDMI adapter be useful?
