This week, CEDIA--the trade organization for custom installation professionals--released two white papers discussing the new HDMI 2.1 specification, with the goal of educating custom installers as they begin to integrate HDMI 2.1 components into the systems they install. CEDIA members can download the educational papers for free; non-members can purchase them for $99 each.
CEDIA released two new white papers covering the topic of HDMI 2. 1. These papers, developed by HDMI subject matter expert and CEDIA director of technical content David Meyer, offer a comprehensive overview of the new HDMI specification and a deeper dive into connectivity under HDMI 2.1.
"In CEDIA's newly released three-year strategic plan, we have put a great focus on creating standards, developing best practices and defining guidelines to elevate professionalism and drive member and industry success," said Tabatha O'Connor, CEDIA global president and CEO. "Being able to produce white papers like this ensures that CEDIA members have the tools they need to adapt to the latest technologies and deploy those technologies for their clients."
The first paper, HDMI 2.1 In-Depth, explores these new speeds, formats, features and capabilities, with an insight into the next generation of HDMI system design. The second white paper, HDMI 2.1 Connectivity, explores the requirements for Ultra High Speed HDMI cables in both passive and active form, along with these alternate transports.
David Meyer, director of technical content, adds, "It is incredibly important for members to understand this new standard as it will affect the systems they design and implement on a day-to-day basis. Most people don't get to see the HDMI specification document, and even if they do it's exhaustively complex. These papers distill what's important to the CEDIA community and make it as easy to understand as possible."
Both HDMI 2.1 - In-Depth and HDMI 2.1 Connectivity are available for download at no cost to CEDIA members in resource library and on the CEDIA Community. Non-members may purchase each white paper for $99.
