CEDIA has announced that it has released two new white papers on the topic of HDMI 2.1 that provide a comprehensive overview of the new HDMI specification and connectivity under HDMI 2.1.
The papers were developed by HDMI subject matter expert and CEDIA director of technical content David Meyer. The first white paper, HDMI 2.1 In-Depth, explores the new speeds, formats, features and capabilities, as well as the next generation of HDMI system design. The second white paper, HDMI 2.1 Connectivity, looks at the requirements for Ultra High Speed HDMI cables in both passive and active form, along with alternate transports.
“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. 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,” says CEDIA global president and chief executive Tabatha O’Connor.
To further explore the themes discussed in the white papers, David will be hosting four half-day training courses on 18 and 19 April at the CEDIA EMEA Training Centre in St Neots.
The four training sessions will be:
- HDMI Master Integrator
- HDBaseT Master Integrator
- The Essential Download on AV-over-IP
- Understanding Next Generation Video
“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 distil what’s important to the CEDIA Community and make it as easy to understand as possible,” says David.
Both HDMI 2.1 – In-Depth and HDMI 2.1 Connectivity are available for download at no cost to CEDIA members via www.cedia.net/cedia-training/resources and on the CEDIA community. Non-members may purchase each white paper for $99.
