24-Bit Dailies in a 16-Bit World

Good source for cables

HDMIPeople are always asking me if I could recommend a reliable and inexpensive source for purchasing miscellaneous computer, HDMI, and audio cables/adapters. Sure, you can find them in the big box electronic retailers -- but they are generally overpriced and serve as a good source of income to make up for the big items that these stores sell so cheap.

As you know, here at FilmTVsound.com, we accept no paid advertising and are not beholden to any dealer or manufacturer. So when I plug a company, I do it without compensation, and as a way of helping the readership and as a means of rewarding vendors "who do it right, and take care of us end-users".

Here is my favorite source for ordering those pesky (and usually expensive) cables and adapters.


For example, here is a copy of a recent order that I just received from them. Note how inexpensive they were for HDMI hi-speed, heavy duty cables. Also note, the price included overnite shipping!
