Type A
Nineteen pins, with bandwidth to support all SDTV, EDTV, and HDTV modes.[2] The plug's outside dimensions are 13.9 mm × 4.45 mm.[49] Type A is electrically compatible with single-link DVI-D.[50]

Type B
This connector (21.2 mm × 4.45 mm) has 29 pins and can carry double the video bandwidth of Type A, for use with very high-resolution future displays such as WQUXGA (3840×2400).[50][51] Type B is electrically compatible with dual-link DVI-D, but has not yet been used in any products.[50][52]

Type C
A miniconnector, it is intended for portable devices.[53] It is smaller than the Type A connector (10.42 mm × 2.42 mm) but has the same 19-pin configuration.[53][54] While the number of pins is the same, the signal assignment is different because of the different shielding requirements, due to the signals' being in a single row. The differences are that all positive signals of the differential pairs are swapped with their corresponding shield, the DDC/CEC Ground is assigned to pin 13 instead of pin 17, the CEC is assigned to pin 14 instead of pin 13, and the reserved pin is 17 instead of pin 14.[55] The Type C miniconnector can be connected to a Type A connector using a Type A-to-Type C cable.[53]

Type D
A miniconnector(=>Micro connector) defined in the HDMI 1.4 specification,[56] it keeps the standard 19 pins of Types A and C but shrinks the connector size to something resembling a micro-USB connector.[57] The Type D connector is 2.8 mm × 6.4 mm, whereas the Type C connector is 2.42 mm × 10.42 mm;[58] for comparison, a micro-USB connector is 2.94 mm × 7.8 mm.
