Meet HDMI 2.1 With 10K 48 Gbps Support




Today the HDMI Forum a group that manages HDMI standards officially announced the new 2.1 HDMI standard. With the 2.1 HDMI standard new HDMI cord will be able to support video up to 10K. Don’t worry if your TV does not support 10K (no TVs right now do) the new 2.1 standard of HDMI cables will be backwards compatible.

“The HDMI Forum’s mission is to develop specifications meeting market needs, growing demands for higher performance, and to enable future product opportunities,” Robert Blanchard, president of HDMI forum and an exec at Sony Electronics, said in a statement.

Currently, the 2.0 standard of HDMI cables supports up to 18Gbps 8K something we are starting to see pop up here and there in some very high-end displays. With the 2.1 standard, you will be able to push 48 Gbps of data with resolutions up to 10K.

The HDMI Forum works to make sure that all HDMI cables will be compatible with all HDMI devices. Their goal is to prevent some TVs from working with one HDMI but not another. Many companies including Intel, Samsung, Dolby, Arris, and more have partnered with them to ensure a universal standard.

The HDMI Forum says they will be announcing more details on the 2.1 specs to their members at CES in January 2018.
