HDMI Ethernet Channel (HEC) is a new feature that allows a 100BaseT Ethernet connection over an HDMI cable. This eliminates the need for a separate Ethernet connection to each networked device in a home theater system (HD Display, Blu-ray player, AV receiver, media player, set-top box, etc.) from a router or switch, and simplifies wiring and system installation. HEC support requires a new cable design, which is designated as a “High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet”.
