What are Type C HDMI cable connectors?

A Type C HDMI TV connector adheres to HDMI 1.3 specifications. It is like the Type A connector but smaller. It has 19 pins.

Essentially, Type C HDMI cable connectors are designed for use with portable devices. However many Type C connectors can be connected to outlets requiring a Type A cable if an adapter is used. Most adapters are under $20.00 and can be purchased at local electronics retailers or via online merchants.

What are Type D HDMI cable connectors?

A Type D HDMI TV connector adheres to HDMI 1.4 specifications. It is just like the Type A and C connectors, in that it has 19 pins, but it is even smaller than the Type C. The Type D connector is only 2.94mm x 7.8mm.

Many modern cell phones use Type D HDMI cable connectors. There are many adapters available for helping attach Type D connectors to Type A outlets. A common example of the purpose for making such a connection is the uploading of photos taken via a cell phone to one’s personal computer’s hard drive.
