Ανακοινώθηκε το HDMI 2.0!


Με την μετάβαση από τις Full HD τηλεοράσεις (1080p) στις Ultra HD (4k), είναι λογικό να αναπτύσσεται νέο καλώδιο HDMI προκειμένου να αποδώσει στις νέες απαιτήσεις της τεχνολογίας. Το νέο πρωτόκολλο HDMI ανακοινώθηκε επισήμως σήμερα και μπορεί να μεταφέρει bandwidth εώς και 18GBps, γεγονός που του επιτρέπει να προβάλλει εικόνα με ανάλυση 3840 x 2160 στα 60 καρέ το δευτερόλεπτο! Όσον αφορά τον ήχο, το νέο HDMI μπορεί να μεταφέρει 32 κανάλια, ενώ έγινε γνωστό πως είναι ικανό να “κουβαλάει” δύο σήματα βίντεο ταυτόχρονα (το πως θα χρησιμοποιηθεί δεν το γνωρίζω).

Καμία συσκευή μέχρι τώρα δεν υποστηρίζει το HDMI 2.0, αλλά με τα Xbox One και PS4 να είναι 4k-ready, πρόκειται για θέμα χρόνου να δούμε αναβάθμιση από το 1.4 στο 2.0. Άλλωστε, αφού το βύσμα ειναι κοινό, η αλλαγή μπορει να γίνει και μέσω software update.




Increased bandwidth provides the infrastructure for new features that will drive the next generation of consumer entertainment

BERLIN, Germany – September 4, 2013 – IFA 2013 – HDMI Forum, Inc., a non-profit, mutual benefit corporation, today announced the release of Version 2.0 of the HDMI Specification. This latest HDMI Specification, the first to be developed by the HDMI Forum, offers a significant increase in bandwidth (up to 18Gbps) to support new features such as 4K@50/60 (2160p), which is 4 times the clarity of 1080p/60 video resolution; 32 audio channels; as well as dynamic auto lip-sync and extensions to CEC. The complete Version 2.0 of the HDMI Specification is available to Adopters on the HDMI Adopter Extranet. HDMI Licensing, LLC will host a press conference to discuss the new features of the HDMI 2.0 Specification at IFA 2013 in Berlin on Friday, September 6 at 12:00pm in the TecWatch Forum area of Hall 11.1.

Version 2.0 of the HDMI Specification, which is backward compatible with earlier versions of the Specification, was developed by the HDMI Forum’s Technical Working Group whose members represent some of the world’s leading manufacturers of consumer electronics, personal computers, mobile devices, cables and components. The HDMI Forum currently has a membership of 88 companies.

“The introduction of the HDMI 2.0 Specification represents a major milestone for the HDMI Forum,” said Robert Blanchard of Sony Corporation, president of the HDMI Forum. “Our members collaborated closely to take the highly successful HDMI Specification to the next level by expanding audio and video features for consumer electronics applications.”

The HDMI Forum has chosen HDMI Licensing, LLC to be the Agent to license Version 2.0 of the HDMI Specification. In this role, HDMI Licensing, LLC will provide marketing, promotional, licensing and administrative services, as well as education on the benefits of the HDMI Specification to adopters, retailers, and consumers.

“We are pleased to continue our work in supporting the HDMI Adopter base as well as the entire HDMI ecosystem,” said Steve Venuti, president of HDMI Licensing, LLC. “Adopters can now continue to develop new product functionality over the HDMI interface as well as look to HDMI Licensing, LLC as their single contact for all their licensing and administrative needs.”

Version 2.0 of the HDMI Specification does not define new cables or new connectors. Current High Speed cables (category 2 cables) are capable of carrying the increased bandwidth.

The HDMI 2.0 Compliance Test Specification (CTS) is expected to be released before the end of 2013.
