The latest version of the HDMI specification has been released. Version 1.4a includes enhancements for 3-D applications.

The enhancements include the addition of mandatory 3-D formats for broadcast content, as well as the addition of the 3-D format referred to as Top-and-Bottom.

Steve Venuti, president of HDMI Licensing, the agent responsible for licensing the High-Definition Multimedia Interface spec, said: “When we launched 1.4 in June 2009, we deferred the selection of mandatory 3-D formats for broadcast content until the market direction was more clearly defined. The market has spoken, and the HDMI Consortium has listened and responded to accommodate those market needs.”

An extraction of the 3-D portion of Specification Version 1.4a is available for public download.

The complete HDMI Specification Version 1.4a, along with the 1.4a version of the Compliance Test Specification (CTS), is available to adopters on the HDMI Adopter Extranet.
