Now after several months of additional work, the HDMI Forum has finalized its specification, making HDMI 2.1 official.
With the release of the Apple TV 4K and the proliferation of cheap 4K television sets, consumers may now just be getting used to the idea of 4K resolution, but the folks behind the HDMI spec continue to help push display technology forward.
Support for Dynamic HDR is also a nice addition.
REJOICE, ELECTRONIC NERDS, as the HDMI 2.1 spec is out, promising to bring support for imaging tech including Dynamic HDR and enough bandwidth to support 10K resolutions. This cable will ensure users can properly display bandwidth reliant content, like 8K with HDR enabled.
If you are a gamer you might appreciate HDMI 2.1 includes Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) technology to reduce or eliminate lag, stutter and frame tearing. Quick media switching (QMS) should get rid of that brief black screen when switching content.
Quick Frame Transport (QFT) reduces latency for smoother no-lag gaming, and real-time interactive virtual reality.
To be clear, you don't need to run out to the store and upgrade all of your home theater equipment to make sure it has HDMI 2.1. However, it will be nice to have HDMI 2.1 available as an option in the not too distant future as well. It's backwards compatible with earlier versions of the HDMI specification and can thus be used with existing HDMI devices. It also features the new Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM). More information will be available at CES 2018 in January, we're told. HDMI Forum, Inc., a non-profit, mutual benefit corporation, is comprised of the world's leading manufacturers of consumer electronics, personal computers, mobile devices, cables and components. (HDMI LA) is the agent appointed by the HDMI Forum to license Version 2.x of the HDMI Specification and is the agent appointed by the HDMI Founders to license all earlier HDMI Specifications.
