HDMI 1.4/a: Overview and Enhancements

The HDMI standard continues to evolve, with new capabilities designed to push the boundaries of the HD experience.

. 

( HDMI 1.4 a )

 

Here are the major enhancements introduced in the HDMI 1.4/a:

● HDMI Ethernet Channel Adds high-speed networking to an HDMI link, allowing users to take full advantage of their IP-enabled devices without a separate Ethernet cable.

 

● Audio Return ChannelAllows an HDMI-connected TV with a built-in tuner to send audio data "upstream" to a surround audio system, eliminating the need for a separate audio cable.

 

● 3D – Defines input/output protocols for major 3D video formats, paving the way for true 3D gaming and 3D home theater applications.

 

● 4K Support – Enables video resolutions far beyond 1080p, supporting next-generation displays that will rival the Digital Cinema systems used in many commercial movie theatres.

 

● Content Type – Real-time signaling of content types between display and source devices, enabling a TV to optimize picture settings based on content type

 

● Additional Color Spaces – Adds support for additional color models used in digital photography and computer graphics.

 

● HDMI Micro Connector – A new, smaller connector for phones and other portable devices, supporting video resolutions up to 1080p.

 

● Automotive Connection System – New cables and connectors for automotive video systems, designed to meet the unique demands of the motoring environment while delivering true HD quality.

 

NOTE : HDMI Ethernet channel support is not available in Samsung TV.
