HDMI 1.4 Cable Revealed At CEDIA

By Mendelson Tiu | Friday | 17/07/2009

Signum Cable Company has shown a prototype of the new HDMI v1.4 at CEDIA. The new HDMI 1.4 specification aims to eliminate the need to connect an Ethernet cable to your TV as well as the use of an optical digital audio cable.

The prototype of a cut cable is currently on showcase, showing the cable internals and the new extra channel that will be used to send Ethernet signals.

Denise Kunter, Company Spokesperson for Arista Electronics, said "The new specification has tremendous benefits over the old 1.3 specification. The new specification has already been highly criticised, for causing more confusion into the HDMI market. However, what these critics fail to make clear is that technology has changed since the first appearance of HDMI cables back in 2005."

"Such changes being: built-in digital tuners becoming a standard feature in all HDTVs and also with now the emergence of IP capable televisions, set top boxes, and Blu-ray players. These new technologies have added more separate cables other than HDMI. The new 1.4spec is here to clear this up," added Kunter.

The new HDMI v1.4 spec cable is likely to be in production by early 2010, with v1.4 capable equipment around the same time.

"Of course there are some unknown tech specs in there that might cause some confusion, but for the time being these achievements of eliminating these surplus cables from your TV is a very big win for consumers," concluded Denise.
