Where your horizon expands every day.


HDMI ARC and HDMI eARC are two different versions of the HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) standard that allow for audio to be transmitted from a TV to a soundbar, receiver, or other audio device. To utilize these features on your TV, you will need to connect your audio device to the HDMI ARC or HDMI eARC port on your TV and make sure that both your TV and audio device are compatible with the respective version.

If you have recently bought a smart TV or an audio device that can be connected to a TV, such as a soundbar or a home theatre system, you may have noticed multiple HDMI ports on the back. One of these ports may have a label indicating “ARC” or “eARC”, but what exactly does this mean? Is it necessary to use the HDMI ARC port instead of the regular HDMI port? Are there any benefits? In this article, we will discuss these questions and provide more information on HDMI ARC/eARC.
