    Satellite, Cablecos Require Interface Specifications

    HDMI Licensing, the agent responsible for licensing the high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) specification, said more than 200 companies worldwide have become HDMI Adopters, in addition to the seven HDMI Founders.

    HDMI quickly emerged as the standard for connecting high-definition television (HDTV). By delivering all-digital audio and video quality via a single cable, HDMI dramatically simplifies cabling and helps provide consumers with the highest-quality home theater experience.

    Signifying the rapid adoption of HDMI on a global scale, HDMI adopters include cable/connector, semiconductor, system and test equipment vendors in the United States, Asia-Pacific, China, Japan and Europe.

    U.S. cable industry association CableLabs also requires that all OpenCable HD set-top boxes must have HDMI-HDCP or DVI-HDCP outputs, and satellite operators DirecTV and EchoStar require HDMI-HDCP or DVI-HDCP on all HD set-top boxes.
