Posted January 7, 2009 11:55 PM by J.C. Ribera

HDMI Licensing, LLC the agent responsible licensing the High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) specification has announced five key capabilities and features that will be introduced on the next version of their HDMI technology, which will launch in the first half of 2009.

"HDMI has reached an installed base of more than 600 million devices and now touches almost every consumer device that plays HD content. We want to give the industry a preview of where the HDMI specification is headed as we continue to innovate and meet the needs of this dynamic marketplace," said Steve Venuti, president of HDMI Licensing, LLC.

In the upcoming spec, HDMI will address key industry trends, which will include five innovative features, such as 3D capability, Ethernet connections, and increased resolution performance.

Networking
Consolidation of HD video, HD audio and now high speed data with the addition on Ethernet in the HDMI cable.

Audio Return Channel
Elimination of a S/PDIF cable by allowing for a TV to send audio streams upstream to an A/V receiver for processing and playback over the HDMI cable.

Performance
4K x 2K and 3D are high performance features to be met by increasing the upper limit of the HDMI link.

HD In Your Car
New connector specification for the auto industry as the world's largest auto makers move to digital HD video and audio for 21st century cars with HDMI.

Smaller connector
New, smaller 19-pin connector

That is absurd changing the size of the cable!!!!! What are they thinking why not just make it a locking cable

Sure every one that has gear with HDMi 1.3 is going to change everything I don't think so!!!!

Somebody needs to slap these idiots too.

Can anyone explain why copper-based HDMI is the standard when an optical-based standard would solve most of the bandwidth issues (not to mention being physically smaller) ?
