Latest HDMI 1.4 specification to add 3D support
HDMI Consortium is preparing to add 3D support to its latest 1.4 specification, which could bring 3D gaming and movie watching to high-definition TVs.
HDMI (high-definition multimedia interface) ports connect external devices like set-top boxes or gaming consoles to displays like TV sets. Many of the HDMI ports are based on the 1.3 specification that do not support TV, but the upcoming ports based on the latest specification will support 3D.
The HDMI Consortium on Wednesday said it would meet in late January to add an additional 3D format to the HDMI 1.4 spec. Once the consortium decides on the format, it would be mandatory for consumer electronics makers to implement ports with 3D support in devices like set-top boxes and TVs.
