HDMI Licensing, the agent responsible for licensing the high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) specification, has announced that it has made the 3D portion of the HDMI specification version 1.4 available for public download on the HDMI web-site with the purpose to provide public access to the 3D portion of HDMI 1.4 for those companies and organizations that require access to this portion of the Specification but have not executed an HDMI Adopter Agreement.
”The HDMI consortium recognizes the importance of standardized 3D formats for movies, gaming and broadcast content and the need for non-adopter companies and organizations to have access to that portion of the HDMI Specification. As the mainstream adoption of 3D is gaining momentum and content providers define and expand their 3D roadmaps, HDMI is ready to support this major market development,” said Steve Venuti, president of HDMI Licensing.
The document available for download is extracted from version 1.4 of the HDMI specification. The HDMI Consortium intends to release a 1.4a version of the HDMI Specification shortly which will include updates to the 3D portion of the specification. As soon as the 1.4a version of the specification is published to Adopters, an update to the 3D portion of the document, available for public download, will also be published.
