HDMI 2.1 Officially Released

HDMI 2.1 Officially Released

Now after several months of additional work, the HDMI Forum has finalized its specification, making HDMI 2.1 official.

But putting such speculation aside, the most interesting part of HDMI 2.1 is its ability to support 4K and 8K resolutions at high frame rates.

HDMI 2.1 will also support Dynamic HDR, for specifying HDR metadata on a scene-by-scene or a frame-by-frame basis. The mandatory Ultra High Speed HDMI cable can now carry up to 48 Gbps and allows for Display Strem Compression (DSC). The cable is backwards compatible and can be used with the existing installed base of HDMI devices.

Developed by the HDMI Forum's technical working group, version 2.1 of the HDMI specification is backward compatible with earlier versions of the specification.

Former UConn Guard Ben Gordon Arrested Again, Charged With Robbery
Gordon, 34, was arrested on November 20 in Manhattan after he was pulled over driving a auto with a forged license plate. Gordon, 34, allegedly roughed up the man and left with thousands of dollars in cash, according to the report.

The new spec supports 8K and even 10K resolutions, but those are better thought of as future-proofing or targeted towards commercial applications.

Currently, the 2.0 standard of HDMI cables supports up to 18Gbps 8K something we are starting to see pop up here and there in some very high-end displays. The new spec, which HDMI Forum announced was coming during CES 2017 with only a few details, is now available to all HDMI 2.0 adopter. Gamers will be interested in Variable Refresh Rate-essentially a standardized version of Nvidia's G-Sync and AMD's Freesync (which is itself a standardized feature of the DisplayPort connection standard), which alters the refresh rate on the fly to match the rate at which frames are produced by the GPU-and Quick Frame Transport, which somehow reduces the latency of the HDMI connection. Quick Media Switching aims to end jarring black screens when videos switch, and eARC lets HDMI's audio return channel handle lossless audio.

Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) allows the ideal latency setting to automatically be set allowing for smooth, lag - free and uninterrupted viewing and interactivity. HDMI Licensing Administrator, Inc.
