HDMI specification 1.0 released

In less than a half-year the HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) workgroup, having announced the HDMI v 0.9 in June, released the 1.0 final.

Currently the list of HDMI co-founders includes Hitachi, Matsushita Electric, Philips, Silicon Image, Sony, Thomson Multimedia, and Toshiba. As you might know, the HDMI standard combines the support of hi-res video and multichannel audio in the single digital interface with up to 5Gbps throughput. The HDMI bases on the digital DVI specifications, being backward compatible with it. The new specs define the usage of a miniatire and simple conenctor suitable for mobile devices like digital video cameras.

Basing on the CEA (EIA/CEA-861x) standards compatibility, HDMI ensures the lossless video signal transfers. Besides, HDMI supports most AV.link-compatible protocols popular in Europe.

The new standard also supports the High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) developed by Intel and Silicon Image to protect the Digital Visual Interface (DVI).

The current HDMI 1.0 specification in detail describes all capabilities HDMI provide, including the 15-mm 19-pin HDMI interface for portables. The spec contains all information necessary for the development and making of HDMI-compatible products.

HDMI is already supported by such brands, as Fox and Universal, DIRECTV and EchoStar, and the number of electronics makers. The details of the specification are provided on the dedicated website www.hdmi.org.
