    HDMI Forum releases version 2.1 of HDMI specification

    My 2¢'s on the subject:

    For television, what satellite, or cable company can transmit that bandwidth?
    Not to mention ISP's, even fibre optics has it's limits(more than most people think).

    Uncompressed? How large storage will a product like a movie need?
    You can forget Blu Ray or DVD, you'll need an ssd..
    What about how much RAM you'll need to prevent buffering?

    For PC's Windows can't even get 4K right, and they're talking about 8K & 10K*really
    Again how long will the buffering be, when streaming*sarc
    And how about downloading something that's in 10K?*Shock*Eek

    This is just ridiculous*Redcarded

  3. HDR won't enable!

    Unfortunately they don't make DP 1.4 to HDMI yet, you might have to wait until the next HDMI standard is released, 2.1 iirc.

    Why can't you use an HDMI cable from your GPU to your TV? That's what I do and HDR works flawlessly, at least it did until today when the issue I described above started happening.

    Remote camera


    The HDMI In capability of the alienware method was only to route the HDMI directly to the laptop's panel.

    There is a specific "webcam protocol" that hardware adheres to to be used as a webcam. HDMI is definitely not part of it. You need a to capture the HDMI input first, the output a compressed stream as an input device.

    Hey cliff......if you look back at all the Resolution upgrades over the past pose the exact same questions now as some did 10, 20 and even 30 years ago. That is until hardware was produced for it at an affordable consumer level. Just look back at the digital TV debacle and what it meant for the average TV household. We all had to wait until all the TV, cable, satellite providers all got on board (updated their hardware). Which took a long time. Now we just take it for granted. Then the release of HD TV and the cost of them.

    It will all catch up sooner or the meantime we do what we always do....wait!

    For TV never, you need to compress, and will always have artifacts, the higher the resolution.
    The only people that will really be able to take advantage of this truly, are photographers, graphics designers, and tech designers, that can use uncompressed RAW files, to better manipulate what they need.

    Also scientist, will be able to use it for better imaging on the Nano scale(and smaller), but don't expect to see your favorite rugby team live in true 8K or 10K, upscaled maybe...

    How many times in the past has it been said "It can`t be done"?.....and been proved otherwise.
    Not long ago it was claimed SSD,s could never overcome read speeds with bottlenecks above 550mbs, now we have M2 with its 3500mbs read speeds.

    Technology moves forever onward and upwards, and what seems impossible now will be possible in the future.

    Negative attitudes are anathema to creative minds.

    Tell me dencal, do you have uncompressed 4K TV, or uncompressed YouTube streaming?
    4K has been around a while now...
    I don't even get that with 1080p.
    Our cable company and TV senders send only either 780p or 1080i.
    Personally I can see when something has been compressed. Plus it also has to do with the bit rate something is streamed/sent.
    We'll be waiting a looooong time for 8K & 10K

    Like I's a waiting game. Once the law was passed it took 5 years for the digital TV to move forward for everyone. Then there were the 2 extensions for it. So we wait and wait.

    Your post is about previous post was about future advances in technology, no mention of a time scale.

    Don't be so bloody negative.....if everyone thought like yourself no advancements would ever be made.

    I am old enough to remember aeroplanes with propellers, and having worked in aerospace industries have noted the enormous strides made technology wise, In particular the enormous benefit of computers with the introduction of CAD/CAM.

    All this undreamed of when I was a young man.

    Just because we don't have anything (commercially) out now that takes advantage of the current tech available doesn't mean it's useless. It just means there isn't anything commercially available to consumers yet.

    We have to start somewhere. And yeah, if we listened to the negatives, we wouldn't have a lot of the technology we have today. Again, we have to start somewhere. And as I like to say, technology marches onward, not backwards.

    My two cents.
