The present disclosure provides a physical interface (i.e. a serial link cable) for coupling a head mounted capture (HMC) system to a host receiver. The HMC system includes a multi camera aggregator, a plurality of pulse density modulation (PDM) microphones and a hardware (HW) serializer. The multi camera aggregator further includes a plurality of camera sensors. Each of the plurality of camera sensors provides capture data (i.e. images or videos captured by each of the plurality of camera sensors) as an input to the HW serializer via a camera serial interface (CSI). The plurality of PDM microphones provides audio time-division multiplexed (TDM) data as an input to the HW serializer. The HW serializer converts the capture data and the audio TDM data into an 8B/10B coding serial bit stream and transmits it to an HW de-serializer at the host receiver via the serial link cable. The HW de-serializer converts the 8B/10B coding bit serial stream into the capture data and the audio TDM data. The capture data and the audio TDM data is further fed into an adapter printed circuit board (PCB) at the host receiver that provides seamless transitions among various system-on-chips (SoCs), application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), etc.
