HDMI discussion thread - including new developments
« Reply #225 on: March 21, 2019, 06:21 »
+1...any "significant" improvement to the overall PQ/SQ? I dun suppose so for normal 8-bit 4:2:0 bluray? I could be wrong...

Many Hong Kongers are using now. I got myself a 10m for my projector and my cousin has a 1m for testing.

My question is any improvement perhaps in PQ or reliability of the signal since you have a 10m cable length. Say compare it with the previous cable you own with same length. This is not using fibre right? FWIW anything beyond 5-8m (Max) will likely cause signal degradation. I can’t imagine 8K content in the near future. If future proofing unless your source to display distance is not too far, then no fibre is not required, beyond that, for peace of mind, fibre is the way to go.

It’s optic fibre and the range is 100m without signal loss. Very stable picture. Much better than my previous Aiborg. There is a chip in the plug itself to transfer the source signal to processor/projector. I plug straight into projector.

I see. Good sound investment. Thumbs up.

Anyone care to crystal ball when HDMI 2.1 will hit the mainstream?
I see that TVs are now announcing 2.1
How about amps, BR players etc?

When there is 8K content...then we'll talk about HDMI 2.1. Now it seems like putting a cart in front of the horse.

i thought 2.1 aids in “smoothing” higher bandwidth transfer of ATMOS thru Arc or something like that?

That’s part of the package as well. But the current HDMI 2.0a specs should suffice as far as the audio goes. All that extra bandwidth will have more impact in the video department. Imagine 4K/120fps?! Such high refresh rate, is our TV even capable to process I wonder?
