From UHD gaming TVs to low EMI emission cables that won’t interfere with your WiFi, HDMI 2.1 products are hitting the marketplace in a big way this holiday season. HDMI 2.1 TVs in particular, are getting the most attention, because they’re now compatible with gaming features that previously were only viewable on gaming monitors. (Of course, it also helps that both the new Xbox Series X/S and the Sony PS5, along with new NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards, are also now HDMI 2.1-enabled.)
Slightly less dazzling, but more likely to improve your daily life in so many ways, is the low EMI emissions coming from HDMI 2.1 cables, which means less interference with WiFi, mobile signals, and the like. Who doesn’t want fewer frozen TV screens or dropped calls?
In Episode 114 of the Dealerscope podcast, HDMI Forum president Chandlee Harrell tells us all about why HDMI 2.1 is a gamechanger, which compatible products will be shipping this quarter, and how counterfeit cables may soon become a thing of the past. Click below to listen.
