HDMI to be phased out

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

Some of the largest television manufacturers in the world are working on a system that would be able to combine power, internet, video and audio into one simple connector.

Could this spell the end for HDMI cable and port?

The companies have formed the DDBaseT Alliance, based on the connector’s title, the HDBaseT cable, which could be launched onto the market sometime towards the end of the year.

The companies behind the connector so far are: LG, Samsung, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Valens Semiconductor.

This is an interesting concept, with only one cable and connector required to do everything for the television, but it will require a separate set top box in order for other devices etc to connect to the television in the first place.

  1. I hope it doesn’t stifle innovation of internet, audio and video mediums which should continue to grow independently.
