CEDIA has released two new white papers covering HDMI 2.1. These papers, developed by HDMI subject matter expert and CEDIA director of technical content, David Meyer, offer a comprehensive overview of the new HDMI specification and a deeper dive into connectivity under HDMI 2.1.

“In CEDIA’s newly released three-year strategic plan, we have put a great focus on creating standards, developing best practices, and defining guidelines to elevate professionalism and drive member and industry success,” said Tabatha O’Connor, CEDIA global president and CEO. “Being able to produce white papers like this ensures that CEDIA members have the tools they need to adapt to the latest technologies and deploy those technologies for their clients.”

The first paper, HDMI 2.1 In-Depth, explores these new speeds, formats, features, and capabilities, with an insight into the next generation of HDMI system design. The second white paper, HDMI 2.1 Connectivity, explores the requirements for Ultra High Speed HDMI cables in both passive and active form, along with these alternate transports.

David adds: “It is incredibly important for members to understand this new standard as it will affect the systems they design and implement on a day-to-day basis. Most people don’t get to see the HDMI specification document, and even if they do it’s exhaustively complex. These papers distil what’s important to the CEDIA Community and make it as easy to understand as possible.”

To further explore these themes, David will be hosting four half-day training courses on the 18th and 19th of April at the CEDIA EMEA Training Centre in St Neots. The four training sessions will focus on:

• HDMI Master Integrator.
• HDBaseT Master Integrator.
• The Essential Download on AV-over-IP.
• Understanding Next Generation Video.

To book onto the training courses, visit www.cediaeducation.com. Both HDMI 2.1 – In-Depth and HDMI 2.1 Connectivity are available for download at no cost to CEDIA members via www.cedia.net/cedia-training/resources and on the CEDIA community. Non-members may purchase each white paper for $99.
