HDMI Forum releases finalized 2.0a specification

HDMI logoVideo connections are constantly changing, which can be frustrating for consumers. While some will interpret it as a money grab, the evolution is necessary to push boundaries. One of the most significant changes was the move to digital, with HDMI ultimately becoming a huge success.

With DisplayPort starting to grow in popularity, the HDMI Forum is still looking forward and constantly improving the standard. Today, the HDMI Forum releases the finalized 2.0a specification.

HDMI Forum releases finalized 2.0a specification

"The specification has been updated to enable transmission of HDR formats, which provide enhanced picture quality by simultaneously enabling greater detail for both the dark and bright parts of an image. The HDR-related updates include references to CEA-861.3, CEA's recently published update of HDR Static Metadata Extensions", says the HDMI Forum.

Robert Blanchard, President of the HDMI Forum explains, "we recognized that HDR would be a critical feature as the industry evolves. Our support for HDR enables our 800+ HDMI 2.0 Adopters to develop market-leading products that include HDR and will maintain interoperability across the entire HDMI ecosystem. Along with the publication of the CEA extensions, the HDMI Forum continues to update the HDMI Specification and remain closely aligned with leading CE standards organizations".

While the addition of HDR support is welcomed, it is hardly something consumers are clamoring for. In other words, it will not drive upgrades of cables or devices. For the time being, 2.0a will only be an exciting thing for bleeding edge enthusiasts.
