DVI stands for Digital Visual interface and is designed as a monitor interface. Uncompressed video signals are forwarded by the cable to the monitor and transmit a full digital signal without any loss of data. A short time, DVI was present on DVD players and projectors, but these have been replaced by HDMI. For PC € ™ s, DVI still remains the most widely used digital video connection. This is because DVI has already supported higher resolutions and framerates that are necessary for computer monitors from the outset.
