About HDMI

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a digital interface standard for connecting TVs, projectors, Blu-ray Disc/DVD players, set-top boxes, and other video components. Until now, several separate video and audio cables have been required to connect AV components. With HDMI, a single cable can carry control signals and digital audio of digital video (2-channel PCM, multichannel digital audio, and multichannel PCM).

The HDMI video stream (i.e., video signal) is compatible with DVI (Digital Visual Interface) (*1), so TVs and displays with a DVI input can be connected by using an HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable. (This may not work with some TVs and displays, resulting in no picture.)

This unit supports HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) (*2), so it can display picture only on HDCP-compatible components.

HDMI of the unit supports the following functions.

Audio Return Channel, 3D, x.v.Color, DeepColor, Lip Sync, 4K (Upscaling and Passthrough).

Audio Formats Supported by The Unit:

 2-channel linear PCM (32 - 192 kHz, 16/20/24 bit)

 Multichannel linear PCM (up to 7.1 ch, 32 - 192 kHz, 16/20/24 bit)

 Bitstream (Dolby Atmos, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, DTS-HD Master Audio)

 DSD

Your Blu-ray Disc/DVD player must also support HDMI output of the above audio formats.

About Copyright Protection:

The unit supports Revision 1.4 and Revision 2.2 (HDMI OUT MAIN and HDMI IN3 only) of the HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) (*2), a copy-protection system for digital video signals. Other devices connected to the unit must also support HDCP.

1

DVI (Digital Visual Interface): The digital display interface standard set by the DDWG (3) in 1999.

2

HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection): The video encryption technology developed by Intel for HDMI/DVI. It is designed to protect video content and requires a HDCP-compatible HDMI/DVI receiver to display the encrypted video.

3

DDWG (Digital Display Working Group): Lead by Intel, Compaq, Fujitsu, Hewlett-Packard, and Silicon Image, this open industry group’s objective is to address the industry’s requirements for a digital connectivity specification for high-performance PC and digital displays.

Note:

 There are some content that can be played only with HDCP Rev. 2.2 compatible devices. To play such content, connect an HDCP Rev.2.2 compatible TV or player to the HDMI OUT MAIN jack or HDMI IN3 jack of the unit.

 The HDMI video stream (i.e., video signal) is compatible with DVI (Digital Visual Interface), so TVs and displays with a DVI input can be connected by using an HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable. (Note that DVI connections only carry video, so you will need to make a separate connection for audio.) However, reliable operation with such an adapter is not guaranteed. In addition, video signals from a PC are not supported.

 The HDMI audio signal (sampling rate, bit length, etc.) may be restricted by the connected source component. If the picture is poor or there is no sound from a component connected via HDMI, check its setup. Refer to the connected component’s instruction manual for details.
