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, [email protected]/60, (2160p), which is 4 times the clarity of 1080p/60 video resolution.
