Onkyo Receivers With HDMI 1.4

Onkyo to Support HDMI 1.4 with 3D-Ready capability in 2010 A/V Receivers

Onkyo USA has announced that its 2010 A/V receivers will support the new HDMI 1.4 standard for all new HDMI equipped components. While HDMI 1.4 (High Definition Multimedia Interface) enables a variety of new capabilities for a wide range of video, audio and computer products, these Onkyo products will support both 3D and Audio Return Channel capabilities.

“At Onkyo, we are proud to be one of the first to implement HDMI 1.4 across all of our new A/V receivers for 2010,” said Paul Wasek, Onkyo USA’s marketing manager. “We are very supportive of the new standard because of the added capabilities and the simplification of system connections.”

The Audio Return Channel in HDMI 1.4 enables a TV to send audio data “upstream” over a conventional HDMI cable to an A/V receiver or surround audio controller, increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection.

Onkyo USA will introduce its first HDMI 1.4-capable products in the Spring.
