What types of HDMI ports are used on Sony products?

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

Sony products may have one of the following type of HDMI ports:

  • Standard (Type A)
  • Mini (Type C)
  • Micro (Type D)

Depending on the product, one HDMI port may be preferred over the other. For instance, due to the small size and limited space on many portable products, a mini or micro HDMI port might be used instead of a standard-size HDMI port.

Type A Standard: This HDMI port is a 19-pin plug commonly used to connect various home video and audio products, such as TVs, DVD players, Blu-ray Disc players, home theater systems, and other home entertainment products.

Type C Mini and Type D Micro: These HDMI ports are smaller than Type A and are designed for use on many portable devices like digital music players, digital cameras and camcorders, and other handheld products. A micro-to-standard or mini-to-standard HDMI cable can be used to connect such devices to a TV or other home video and audio products.

IMPORTANT:To determine the type of HDMI port on your Sony product, refer to the supplied Operating Instructions or Manual.
