High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) has taken another leap towards giving you the best possible quality picture and sound. The HDMI Licensing, LLC has licensed the version 1.4 of HDMI cables, which includes advances in several areas of digital signal transmission such as the Automotive Connection System, Network Capability and Resolution Improvement.
Changes and advancements
High definition TV can now send audio stream to an AV receiver through fewer numbers of cables with the new ‘audio return channel’ in HDMI 1.4 cable. A standardised format of input/output system in 1.4 solves the problem of playing different kinds of 3D formats on the new 3D home theatre systems and the HD devices can play dual stream files with resolutions up to 1080p.
It brings transmission content at resolutions used in digital theatres right to your home screen. One can now play files of resolutions of even 4k x 2k using this specification. Still images taken by high-resolution cameras can be reproduced accurately on the screen as HDMI 1.4 cable also supports colour spaces. 1.4 is not only better but also smaller and more compact, occupying less space and giving you better quality at the same time. The new feature of automotive connection system in HDMI cables of version 1.4 provides a solution for regional environmental conditions like heat, vibrations and noise. This is particularly useful for portable devices and high quality in-car digital equipment.
So get set and buckle your seatbelts to enter the world of high definition 3D TV with the HDMI 1.4 cable. It’s going to take the world by storm.
