HDMI 2.0a with HDR

Posted by Gennie – October 3, 2015

The HDMI Forum has announced the specification for HDMI 2.0a and it’s designed to support the transmission of HDR video. HDR, short for high dynamic range, is a new content enhancement formatting that greatly increases the possible contrast ratio on ultra HD content from broadcast, Blu-ray and streaming sources. The result is a much richer and sharper image that consumers notice for its quality even more easily than they notice the pure resolution provided by 4K. HDMI 2.0 support bandwidth up to 18Gbps, 4K@50/60, (2160p), which is 4 times the clarity of 1080p/60 video resolution.
