HDMI 2.1 is finally here, and it has support for 10K resolution

The HDMI Forum today released more details about its HDMI 2.1 spec, and it includes support for technology like Dynamic HDR, and features enough bandwidth to support resolutions up to 10K. The new spec includes support for resolutions up to 10K (10240x4320) at refresh rates up to 120 Hz.

Videos also get a boost, mostly due to dynamic HDR, which allows a video to send high-dynamic range metadata to your HDR television scene-by-scene or even frame-by-frame basis, rather than simply at the start of a video. This cable will ensure users can properly display bandwidth reliant content, like 8K with HDR enabled. The cable incorporates low EMI (electro-magnetic interference) to reduce interference with nearby wireless devices. The new Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC) is backwards-compatible with the existing ARC and has support for uncompressed and object-based audio formats like DTS:X and Dolby Atmos.

When it comes to connecting your TV to a set top box, Blu-Ray player, Amazon Fire Stick or a gaming console, HDMI is the best connectivity option available.

Perhaps just as pleasing to your peepers as the higher resolutions and refresh rates is the delivery of Dynamic HDR to compatible TV screens. Resolutions up to 10K are also supported for commercial AV, industrial and specialty usages.

The cable has a raw bandwidth of 48Gbps, more than 4 times what HDMI 1.4 offers!

Quick Media Switching (QMS) for movies and video eliminates the delay that can result in blank screens before content is displayed. Finally, Quick Frame Transport is there to reduce latency.
