Agilent Helps Make Digital Videos Look and Sound Even Better

The Agilent HDMI 2.0 test solution has been certified by the HDMI Forum as an official compliance test tool.

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) was introduced in 2003 for the transfer of digital video and audio between devices.  Within 10 years, more than 3 billion HDMI devices had been sold, ranging from televisions to computers and tablets.

The original HDMI 1.0 specification supported high-definition videos of up to 1920×1200 pixels, sufficient for today’s high-definition televisions and Blu-Ray Discs.  HDMI 2.0, introduced in September 2013, supports resolutions of up to 4096×2160 pixels, anticipating the advent of “4K” ultra-high definition televisions in the future.

As an HDMI Forum member, Agilent collaborated on the development of official test standards and specifications with Panasonic.

“Panasonic has been working with Agilent to verify this required specification, and we are pleased to be the first Authorized Test Center in the world to offer the 18 Gbps [gigabits per second] physical layer compliance test capability,” says Panasonic’s Hiroyuki Iitsuka.

“This solution will help to speed up HDMI 2.0 development for many R&D customers and other ATCs requiring compliance test equipment,” says Agilent’s Juergen Beck.
