HDMI products to get meaningful labels

You can hear the praises of the rookie TV shopper at your local shop looking for the right cable! With the HDMI specification constantly–and annoyingly–evolving it was high time someone did something to translate the different revisions to the average consumers. This is at least a step in the right direction. Next step–tell everyone about Monoprice.com!


According to the new guidelines, adopters will no longer be allowed to use HDMI specification version numbers in the labeling, packaging, or promotion of their HDMI-compliant products. These restrictions go into effect immediately for cable products. Noncable products, however, have until January 1, 2012, to fully comply.
