CEDIA 2017 Featured HDMI Training Classes and Panel

CEDIA 2017 featured HDMI products everywhere throughout the San Diego Convention Center. The commercial AV and custom integrator markets are the most in-the-know when it comes to HDMI technology. That’s because for many companies designing and installing HDMI-dependent systems is a critical part of the businesses. HDMI Licensing Administrator Inc. (HDMI LA) teamed up with CEDIA and provided the latest information through HDMI Master Integrator classes. CEDIA also hosted another opportunity for attendees with an HDMI Video Connectivity Hot Seat open panel featuring several HDMI technology authorities.

Also featured throughout the show were several displays showcasing cables from the Premium HDMI Cable Certification Program. Premium HDMI Cables are relied upon for higher performance and value, and are the only cables to be tested and certified by HDMI Authorized Test Centers to ensure they support high-bandwidth enabled features. Every length of every model line is tested and certified and only Premium HDMI Cables are allowed to display and promote the official Premium HDMI Cable Authentication Label.

IFA 2017 Features HDMI Technologies Along with Launch of Premium USB Type-C to HDMI Cables

Back on the road again, the HDMI LA Team was demonstrating the latest HDMI technologies at the 2017 IFA in Germany. One of the highlights at June’s Computex show was a selection of USB Type-C to HDMI cables. Now at IFA that was augmented by the first of those cables to be part of the Premium HDMI Cable Certification Program, and their packaging displayed the program’s unique authentication labels.

Also featured at the booth were demonstrations of HDMI Alt Mode enabled source devices connected to 4K HDMI displays with the new cables. These sources are able to utilize HDMI technology and features and also connect directly to HDMI displays without the need of adapters or converters. Information was also available for the upcoming HDMI 2.1 specification release.

Ongoing press briefing sessions and interviews were taking place at the booth, and HDMI Adopters and manufacturers scheduled meetings and dropped by to meet the HDMI LA team. The HDMI LA Team included: Rob Tobias, President and CEO; Jeff Park, Director of Technology; and Val Robbins, Marketing and Events Specialist.
