Clarification Definition of HDMI® Licensed Products
HDMI Licensing Administrator, Inc., the agent responsible for licensing the HDMI® Specification, is providing the following clarification regarding the qualifications for HDMI® Licensed Products.
An HDMI product that consists entirely of licensed components does not necessarily mean the final product is a licensed product. Every end-user product, such as a Digital TV or tablet, must itself be a duly licensed product even though it may contain one or more duly licensed components.
The following is required for an HDMI product to be licensed and authorized to bear the HDMI trademarks.
- The manufacturer of the finished end-user product MUST be a licensed HDMI Adopter, and
- The finished end-user product MUST satisfy all requirements as defined in the Adopter Agreement including but not limited to passing compliance testing either at an HDMI ATC or through self-testing.
