How to Convert AV to HDMI

HDMI is an industry supported interface capable of transferring both audio and video signals over a single cable. While HDMI is highly regarded for its streamlined design, it is also extremely versatile in that it can carry various levels of signal quality from standard transmissions to 1080p high definition resolutions. If you want to hook up your device that only uses AV or composite outputs to your HDMI-enabled TV, use a converter box to convert the signal.
