• HDMI 2.0 specifications have been announced by the HDMI Forum, an independent non-profit corporation in Berlin Germany. The new specifications aim at making the HDMI better and faster. First of all, there's significant boost to the bandwidth with support up to 18 Gbps bandwidth. It also supports 4K videos at 50/60 fps, which is 4X the clarity of current full HD/60 video resolution. The standards make way for 32 audio channels, dynamic audio lip-sync and extensions to CEC. The version 2.0 of HDMI is backward compatible with the earlier versions of the specs.


    Robert Blanchard of Sony Corporation & president of the HDMI forum called HDMI 2.0 as a major milestone for the forum. The new standards will ensure that the technology is ready for the expanding video and audio features of the consumer electronics applications.

    The new specs do not define any new cables or connectors. Current high speed HDMI calbes (category 2) are capable of carrying the increased bandwidth as specified in HDMI 2.0.
