A/V or Audio/Visual Cables will connect a device to a display source. They're essential if you're trying to connect items with USB, HDMI, or SVGA ports - and more besides. Make sure your media is ready to go by browsing Cables.com's selection of premier audio/video cables!
What Kinds of A/V Cables Are There?
The short answer is: too many! Technology evolves in leaps and bounds, and as it does, so does the need for devices and their required means of connection. That's probably why you've got a drawer somewhere in your house crammed full of mystery cables you can't bring yourself to throw out just yet, because you know that once you do, you're going to need that cable again. It's possible that you can afford to invest in the newest, shiniest electronic devices, but most people likely own an assortment of electronics produced anywhere within the past decade. I was using my iPod until I accidentally ran it over with my car in 2013. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," right?
In any case, odds are you would benefit from having a variety of A/V or Audio/Visual cables in your home. Cables.com stocks cables meant for everything from the highest-definition devices to older analog connections.
RCA Cables and Connectors
RCA Connectors have been used to carry audio and visual signals since they were developed by the Radio Corporation of America sometime in the 1930s. Though they've been increasingly phased out by more modern methods of connection, you can still need them for devices like older TVs or DVD players.
If you're something of an old-school purist who prefers analog content, Cables.com also offers a selection of RCA and DVI video and audio cords. You can find standard dual male connectors between 6ft and 50ft in length. Cables.com stocks 3-RCA Component Coaxial Video cables from 3ft to 100ft long. With our 5-RCA Component Coaxial Video Cables, you can carry both audio and video between home theater devices and displays or AV receivers. This includes our Super High Resolution 5-RCA Component Video/Audio Coaxial RG-6 18AWG 750hm CL2 Rated Cable, all available at everyday low prices. It's worth noting that these cables are the same component cords used by industry professionals!

DisplayPort Cables and Adapters
DisplayPort is an upgrade from HDMI, the standard in video transmission in today's gadgets including tablets, laptops and desktop computers. Although not used as widely as others, DisplayPort 1.4 is found in non-Mac machines. Not to be confused with MiniDisplayport, these have 20 Pins and are usually lockable. They can support resolutions up to 8K@60Hz UHD (7680 x 4320) with 30 bits/pixel RGB color and HDR as well as 4K@120Hz with 30 bits/pixel RGB color and HDR. They even offer support for all common 3D video formats, and are capable of carrying multichannel digital audio.
