HDMI 2.1

A whopping 48Gbps bandwidth - HDMI 2.1 is the forefront of Ultra HD but limited in devices and programs that support it.

HDMI 2.1 specs support higher spatial resolutions and improved frame rates including 8K/60Hz and 4K/120Hz. These provide enhanced, smooth display of full-speed motion imaging that is common with sports, action movies, virtual reality and gaming - Playstation 5 and XBox users look for this high-specification for intense free-flowing gameplay without lag or pixel deterioration. Dynamic HDR also plays a part in this with its extended contrast range.

Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC) is now supported in HDMI 2.1 which provides support for the latest audio formats up to 192kHz, 24-bit, 5.1 or 7.1, plus 32-channel uncompressed audio.
