A few years ago, AV( audio visual) also known as RCA( Radio Corporation of America) signal was the standard and came with most audio and visual devices including video players, camcorders, projectors, mixing boards, gaming consoles. The signal used to transmit the sound and video was analog and was good enough at the time.

HDMI produces clearer and more reliable signal that leads to crystal clear images and crisp audio. It is found in most modern entertainment accessories and runs in digital form.
