There are several HDMI® cable types plus a special cable certification designation to choose from; each designed to meet a particular performance standard. Here is an overview of the HDMI cable types, their capabilities, and how to tell them apart.
To help consumers and to clarify cable types further, all HDMI® cable products are required to be labeled with Cable Name Logos provided by HDMI Licensing Administrator, Inc. Look for these logos when choosing the HDMI cable that is best for your needs.

Is there a difference between HDMI and HDMI ARC cable?
ARC is short for Audio Return Channel. This is a technology that's used for some HDMI connectors and most HDMI 2.0b cables. While a regular HDMI connector is only able to transmit video images, ARC has an added function that allows you to transmit audio from a TV back to the source, like a receiver or soundbar.
Do different HDMI cables make a difference?
Can a very expensive HDMI cable show a better picture and sound quality than a cheaper one? The quick answer is no. An HDMI cable, regardless of the materials used, can either transmit a signal or not – there's no in-between. An expensive HDMI doesn't produce richer colors or crisper sound than cheaper versions.
Does type of HDMI cable matter?
Most certainly, and that applies whether you're on a monitor, projector, portable projector, or your trusty TV. While up until HDMI 1.3 the saying “all HDMI cables are made equal” was more or less correct, since HDMI 1.4 and the advent of 4K the various data bandwidth of each cable makes a huge difference.
