THE NEWEST HDMI 2.0B VERSION – WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES?
The HDMI organisation has released a new HDMI 2.0b standard. The main difference is that the new standard supports the HDR (High Dynamic Range) format. HDR improves the contrast ratio because the source sends additional information (metadata) to the television - information that regulates the television's backlight. The source and TV must of course also support HDR. It also supports dynamic synchronization between video and audio streams. This new standard does not require a new cable type! That means that high-speed HDMI cables with Ethernet are still suitable. There are also no resulting changes to the categories of these cables.
