Approved Category 3 Connectors
The Approved Connectors List can be found under the Resources menu.
In accordance with version 2.1a of the HDMI Compliance Test Specification (“CTS”), HDMI Licensing Administrator, Inc. will maintain a list of approved Category 3 connectors (“Approved Category 3 Connector” list). For a device to pass CTS 2.1a testing at an Authorized Testing Center (“ATC”), all connectors on such device must appear on the Approved Connector list. To add a connector to this list, the system or connector vendor must test the connector at a qualified facility of the vendor's choosing, and the vendor must then submit to the ATC or HDMI Licensing Administrator, Inc. full and passing testing results as set forth in the HDMI Forum Connector Test Result Form (“HF-CTRF”). The HF-CTRF is available on the Adopter Extranet. Only HDMI 2.0 Adopters may add their products to the Approved Connector List.
Successful completion of the HF-CTRF and/or ATC Testing, and the fact that a connector is listed as an “Approved Category 3 Connector” below, does not guarantee that any connector or product will conform to the High-Definition Multimedia Interfaces, function correctly or interoperate with any other product. Each Adopter is solely responsible for ensuring that its products function correctly, fully comply with the HDMI Specification and Adopter Agreement, and interoperate with other products
Policy for Model Names of Approved Connector List
A single complete model number is required per each HF-CTRF submitted for listing. Family model numbers are not allowed in connector model numbers. If you have questions regarding this policy or the process for getting your connectors on the list, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
All existing connectors currently listed on the Approved Category 3 Connectors List are valid until further notice.
