Hitachi, Matsu****a Electric (Panasonic), Philips, Silicon Image, Sony, Thomson multimedia and Toshiba formed a working group to define the next-generation digital interface specification for consumer electronics products.

Designed to usher in the new era of digital entertainment, the high definition multimedia interface (HDMI) specification combines high-definition video and multi-channel audio.

Consumer electronics manufacturers are united in developing this digital interface for future products such as digital televisions, DVD players, set-top boxes and other digital A/V products. HDMI offers significant advantages over existing analog A/V interfaces. Its uncompressed, digital format transports high-definition video and multi-channel audio without processing or degrading them. By combining audio with video on one cable, HDMI offers a convenient connection alternative to the maze of existing analog A/V cables.

Major motion picture producers, as well as satellite and cable companies, have applauded and welcomed high-bandwidth digital content protection (HDCP) for digital visual interface (DVI), an existing industry standard. The key underlying technology in DVI will be the basis for the new HDMI specification.
