New HDMI Spec Announced, Pushes Entertainment Tech Forward

on Wednesday, Sep. 4th

There's a new HDMI specification on the scene, and it's here to make noise (and pretty pictures).

HDMI is, of course, stands for High-Definition Multimedia Interface, and is the standard that is relied on to transfer audio-visual signals between devices. You already knew all that. What matters is what the new HDMI, HDMI 2.0, does. Ars Technica's Casey Johnston breaks it down:

The new HDMI 2.0 specification will support up to 32 audio channels as well as “dynamic auto lip-sync.” The spec will be able to accommodate the 4K strain of Ultra HDTVs, but it would not be able to handle full-fledged 8K (7680×4320) TV at 60 FPS.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. 8K? I don't even have a 1080 HDTV yet and now we're talking about 8K?

Sheesh. How many pixels do we need?
