Ethernet Cable becomes the next AV Cable
In an article by Digital Trends, the major TV makers (LG Electronics, Samsung Electronics, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Valens Semiconductor) are looking to end the AV connectivity format HDMI which has become a standard in the HD TV market for connecting devices for both video and sound using one cable.
However, we soon could be using the everyday networking cables to connect our devices. In the past connecting devices meant buying one of many (e.g. S-Video, HDMI etc.) different connectors.

The same connection can be used to also transmit data including internet video and network streaming.
