Notice regarding official list of HDMI Authorized Test Centers

This notice serves as a reminder that there are currently 12 official HDMI Authorized Test Centers (ATCs). The addresses and contact information of official ATCs are posted on the HDMI.org website.

Presto Engineering European ATC organizes an International HDMI PlugFest in France – Register now!

The Presto Engineering European Authorized Test Centre, specializing in HDMI and HDCP compliancy testing, is planning an International HDMI Plugfest-- an event allowing companies to test the interoperability of their HDMI products with those of other participating companies. 

The International HDMI Plugfest in Europe will take place in Caen, Normandy, France, at the Presto engineering facility from Monday, June 30th to Friday, July 4th 2014.

Any HDMI Adopter is invited to participate.

The goal is to have as many HDMI prototypes or HDMI mass production products attending the event as possible in order to make interoperability tests with other products as successful as possible. HDMI Sink / HDMI Sources / HDMI repeater / HDMI cables are welcome.

During the event the Source teams are required to approach the Sink Team and Repeater Team to perform the testing. The goal is to reproduce real use cases that may happen in an end user home when connecting HDMI products together. If interoperability issues are found, teams can try to find the root cause of the issue since the engineers that have worked on HDMI HW or SW parts are attending the event.

This kind of event is designed to help companies avoid field returns due to HDMI interoperability issues. Participation in this event may improve product SW/HW before mass production begins.

To attend to this event, companies must have prototype or production level product(s) available for interoperability testing, and must agree to test their products with any product provided by other participants. Any HDMI 1.4b feature can be tested (video, audio, 3D, 4Kx2K, CEC, ARC, HEC, …). Companies that have HDMI 2.0 capable products are also welcome.

Please note, although the Presto Engineering European ATC is organizing this event, it is not a compliance event and the main goal is to check interoperability between products.

In parallel to this event, the Presto Engineering European ATC will offer informative HDCP compliancy testing to those companies that are interested. Some test tool manufacturers will also attend the event to demonstrate their tests tools as well as measure the devices of the participants. 

The fee per registered participant is 500 euros (without taxes). This includes lunch during the entire week, and access to a fun event on Wednesday. Payment must be made online by credit card.

Confidentiality of all product testing will be maintained through a mandatory Non Disclosure Agreement that must be signed by every attending company.

Register your team now -- registration will be closed on June 13th 2014. 

To learn more about this event, location, detailed agenda, hotel information, NDA and register your team, visit the dedicated web site.

Implementation Guidelines for Directly Attached Device

To meet the growing market need for new form factors within the HDMI ecosystem, HDMI Licensing, LLC has released a new “Implementation Guidelines for Directly Attached Device” to the HDMI Adopter Extranet. This document outlines implementation requirements for HDMI products which can connect to other HDMI devices directly without an HDMI cable (or with a short “Pig tail” cable). The implementation requirements described in this document allow Adopters to develop and manufacturer Direct Attached Devices within the framework of the existing 1.4b Specification, and to test these devices within the framework of the existing 1.4b CTS. This document specifies the following:

  • Directly Attached Source
  • Directly Attached Sink

A Directly Attached Device that is compliant with the requirements of these Guidelines can be considered a licensed HDMI end-user product with all rights and obligations specified in the HDMI Adopter Agreement. HDMI Licensing, LLC will enforce against those Direct Attach HDMI Devices that do not comply with these guidelines. You can find these Guidelines on the HDMI Adopter Extranet. If you need assistance logging into the HDMI Adopter Extranet, please contact admin@hdmi.org HDMI Licensing, LLC.

Cable Adapter Combination Guidelines 1.0

Dear HDMI Adopter,
With the growth of mobile HDMI devices, the implementation of small form factor HDMI connectors (Type C/D) has increased significantly over the past few years. This growth has not been limited to only HDMI Sources but also HDMI Sinks. The current HDMI Specification currently does not specify a way for a mobile HDMI Source with Type C/D connector to connect to a mobile HDMI Sink with Type C/D receptacle. To address this need, HDMI Licensing, LLC has released a new "Cable Adapter Combination Guideline" document to the HDMI Adopter Extranet. This document specifies additional Cable Adapter Combinations that previously did not exist:

  • Type C to Type D
  • Type D to Type D

The following Standard Automotive Cables may be implemented using the following additional Cable Adapter Combinations:

  • Type A to Type C
  • Type A to Type D

The Guidelines will also specify how to compliance test the new Cable Adapter Combinations.

Please go to the HDMI Adopter Extranet to download these Guidelines for details.

If you need assistance logging into the HDMI Adopter Extranet, please contact admin@hdmi.org.

Success at the European HDMI Plugfest 2013! NXP HDMI ATC Expertise Recognized Worldwide

Caen, France—March 18-22, 2013—NXP hosted its third annual HDMI Plugfest Europe 2013 at its Caen site. This worldwide event included 60 people from the world’s largest electronic companies involved in as segments of the HDMI ecosystem, including consumer electronics manufacturers, HDMI IC designers and HDMI test equipment makers—working together to verify interoperability of all HDMI branded products before their launch on the market.

The NXP HDMI ATC is the only testing facility in Europe and its expertise is widely recognized throughout the region. At the end of an intensive week, all participants were very pleased with the event. Etienne Marchand organized an extremely efficient and well-run event, with NXP engineers proving to be an invaluable resource.

The European Plugfest offered an open exchange among all participants, improving overall knowledge throughout the entire HDMI ecosystem.

Non-Compliant HDMI Products:Inadequate support for 480P video transmission

HDMI Licensing, LLC has recently identified several source products in the marketplace that do not adequately support specific video resolutions per the HDMI Specification. The compliance issue is reliable, continuous 480p video transmission, as per the HDMI Specification. HDMI Licensing, LLC has learned that these devices transmit an OSD (On Screen Display) message to the user in 480p resolution communicating to the customer 1) that 480p resolution is not supported, or 2) that customers switch their sink device to a resolution higher than 480p.

It is each and every HDMI Adopter’s obligation to build products that comply with the HDMI Specification, pass the HDMI Compliance Test Specification, and interoperate with other Fully Compliant HDMI-enabled devices available in the market. The devices in question may be able to transmit an OSD message in the minimum video resolution designated in the Specification, the HDMI Specification inherently requires that all sources be capable of transmitting all video content at a minimum of 480p.

Transmitting only an OSD in 480p and other video content at higher resolutions undermines the intent of the HDMI Specification and the obligation of HDMI Adopters to ensure that all Fully Compliant HDMI-enabled products interoperate at a minimum level. We are sending this information to bring the issue described above to your attention.

If you have questions or concerns, please email admin@hdmi.org

HDMI, LLC Response to Mini DisplayPort-HDMI Cables

HDMI Licensing, LLC, the agent responsible for licensing the HDMI® specification and promoting the HDMI standard, would like to provide clarification on the recent reports concerning the non-compliance of Mini DisplayPort to HDMI cables.

HDMI Licensing’s utmost concern is to maintain the highest level of interoperability possible among devices that use HDMI technology. Ensuring that HDMI-connected devices perform according to the Specification is crucial to maintaining the integrity of the standard for consumers and Adopters alike. Devices that cannot be tested for compliance and interoperability, or that do not pass testing, do not represent the highest standard of HDMI technology and diminish the superior home theater experience consumers have come to expect from HDMI technology.

The HDMI Consortium has always contemplated and supported content moving from one format to another. To that end, the HDMI Specification supports solutions that convert a signal from a non-HDMI source device into a fully compliant HDMI signal. HDMI Licensing, LLC refers to this solution as an adapter (dongle) solution.

DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter (dongle)

The DisplayPort to HDMI adapters (Figure 1.) on the market today can be tested for compliance and interoperability because the HDMI Specification and the Compliance Test Specification (CTS) have defined the requirements for such an adapter. The adapter provides a source device, such as a PC, with an HDMI output receptacle (or female connector), which is an essential element for CTS interoperability testing. With an adapter connected to the source device, the consumer can establish an HDMI connection to the sink device, such as a DTV, via a certified HDMI cable (which has HDMI male connectors on both ends).


Certified DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter (dongle)

Figure 1. Connection via a DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter (dongle)

Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Cable

The Mini DisplayPort to HDMI cable (Figure 2.) features a male DisplayPort connector on one end and a male HDMI connector (plug) on the other end to connect a DisplayPort source device directly to the HDMI receptacle port (female connector) on a sink device. This cable does not provide an HDMI receptacle port (or female connector) from the source device and is not defined in the HDMI Specification, which means it presently cannot be tested for compliance or interoperability using the HDMI CTS. Lacking the instructions from the HDMI Specification, Adopters have no guidance on how to design and manufacture this type of cable. Therefore, consumers cannot be assured that products using this type of cable will work as expected. HDMI Licensing has informed select manufacturers of DisplayPort and Mini DisplayPort to HDMI cables of the non-compliance status of their products, but did not ask for a recall yet.

To summarize, HDMI Licensing, LLC intends to continue its work to support adoption of the Standard and the efforts of its Adopters to develop products that meet requirements for compliance and interoperability. We have ongoing training and education programs in place to educate all facets of the consumer electronics community and hope this clarifies the options for supporting DisplayPort devices in the HDMI ecosystem. Readers are encouraged to contact HDMI Licensing, LLC at http://www.hdmi.org/index.aspx if they would like further assistance.

Notice to HDMI Adopters and ATC regarding HDMI CTS Test ID 7-19

To:  All HDMI Authorized Test Centers and HDMI Adopters
Regarding:  Inconsistency between 1.4a Specification and Test ID: 7-19

A discrepancy has been identified between HDMI CTS 1.4a Test ID: 7-19 and HDMI Specification 1.4a on the General Control Packet transmission requirement.

The details are as follows:

  • Section 5.3.6 of the HDMI Specification 1.4a states: "General Control packets indicating Set_AVMUTE or Clear_AVMUTE may only be transmitted between the active edge of VSYNC and 384 pixels following this edge".
  • Test ID: 7-19 in the CTS, however, has the following text in page 149 of HDMI CTS 1.4a: "If this General Control Packet was transmitted anywhere except between an active edge of VSYNC and 384 pixels following that same edge FAIL".

In other words, the HDMI Specification 1.4a puts a position restriction only on GCP packets that contain Set_AVMUTE or Clear_AVMUTE, while the HDMI CTS 1.4a puts restrictions on all GCP Packets.

The issue has been reviewed by the Founders and no interoperability problems from receiving failing result on this test are anticipated. A correction to the CTS will be made in the near future to resolve the discrepancy between the two documents by adapting test 7-19 to FAIL on above text only in case the General Control packets is indicating Set_AVMUTE or Clear_AVMUTE. Until then, all ATCs and all Adopters who conduct self-testing are to ignore those failures of Test ID: 7-19 that are a result of GCP packets (not indicating Set_AVMUTE or Clear_AVMUTE) that are being transmitted outside the interval between an active edge of VSYNC and 384 pixels following that same edge. Products otherwise passing CTS testing should be treated as if no failure occurred.

Please contact HDMI Licensing, LLC if you have any questions.


CBP Announcement

To our HDMI Adopters and HDMI Community,

As you may know, in efforts to protect the interests of our Adopter base, protect the HDMI brand, and protect the well-being of consumers who use HDMI technology to connect their HD devices, HDMI Licensing has embarked on an enforcement program with the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency of the US government. The success of this program has exceeded our expectations.

Important Notice to Manufacturers and Resellers of HDMI Cables

PLEASE TAKE TIME TO REVIEW THESE CHANGES AS THEY MAY HAVE A DIRECT IMPACT ON YOUR BUSINESS

As of November 18, 2010, important changes to the way HDMI cable products are sold and marketed go into effect.

The following are now mandatory for cable products.

  • You shall not use HDMI version numbers in the labeling, packaging, or promotion of any cable product. This includes releases of the HDMI specification (for example, HDMI 1.3, etc.), interim version numbers (for example, HDMI 1.3a, etc.) and CTS (Compliance Test Specification) version numbers (for example, 1.2, 1.3c, etc.).
  • All cables shall be labeled, both on the cable itself and on the front of the cable packaging, with the appropriate cable name (see below). As of November 18, 2010, compliance will be mandatory.
    • Standard HDMI® Cable
    • Standard HDMI® Cable with Ethernet
    • Standard Automotive HDMI® Cable
    • High Speed HDMI® Cable
    • High Speed HDMI® Cable with Ethernet

Clarification on HDMI Licensed Products

We have recently been approached with requests to test or certify products that use HDMI Technology in applications that are not defined by and/or licensed under the HDMI Adopter Agreement, the Specification, or supporting documents. Examples of proposed products include devices where HDMI connections exist internal to the end product, with no HDMI functionality external to the device.

As you know, the HDMI Specification and supporting documents were written to allow manufacturers to create products that interoperate in a predictable, well defined way. Any use of the intellectual property, technology, standards and methods defined by the HDMI Specification are restricted to the creation and sale of Licensed Products, as defined in the HDMI Adopter Agreement.

According to the Adopter Agreement, “Licensed Product” means a Cable, Component, Connector, Repeater, Source or Sink. Any potential product which does not meet the requirements for at least one of these product types, as defined in the Adopter Agreement, cannot be classified as a Licensed Product.

In addition, Section 2 of the HDMI Adopter Agreement contains the patent license to Necessary Claims for the creation and sale of Licensed Products. A non-licensed or noncompliant product does not receive a license to these Necessary Claims. In addition, Section 2 also states that “such license shall not extend to any part or function of a product in which a Licensed Product is incorporated that is not itself a Licensed Product.” In this case, using the HDMI specification to design an internal connection between subsystems is not allowed for Licensed Products.

We respectfully ask that you carefully consider and adhere to the requirements of the HDMI Specification and your Adopter Agreement when determining the applications of HDMI technology in your products. If you have questions please contact HDMI Administration.

Thank you for your continued participation in and support of the HDMI Consortium.
