Well the future of HDMI is out as the complete skinny on HDMI 1.4 hits the streets.

 

According to the news at VRZone we are looking at compatability with 4k and 2k a complete Ethernet channel, audio return, 3D support, broader color range and of course...new connectors.

 

Now I love new technology and better support from it, I do get annoyed when I have to replace everything to get them.

HDMI 1.4 Specifications get finalized

 


The following are enhancements that will be brought to the new specification.

 

HDMI Ethernet Channel
Adding a data channel to the HDMI cable and will enable high-speed bi-directional communication. Connected devices that include this feature will be able to send and receive data via 100 Mb/sec Ethernet.

 

Audio Return Channel
An Audio Return Channel will reduce the number of cables required to deliver audio upstream for processing and playback. In cases where HDTVs are directly receiving audio and video content, this new Audio Return Channel allows the HDTV to send the audio stream to the A/V receiver over the HDMI cable, eliminating the need for an extra cable.

 

3D Over HDMI
The 1.4 version of the specification will define common 3D formats and resolutions for HDMI-enabled devices. The specification will standardize the input/output portion of the home 3D system and will specify up to dual-stream 1080p resolution.
