Last week, we talked about HDMI 2.1a technology and the SBTM feature that provides HDR synchronization. It looks like HDMI 2.1a will launch and start rolling out alongside CES 2022. Let’s also add that products with phrases about STBM support will be released.
HDMI Licensing Administrator announced the HDMI 2.1a standard on December 21, before CES 2022. HDMI LA also says that the SBTM will transmit some HDR signals that the display previously used to the opposite devices. It was designed specifically for computers and games, and will allow developers to achieve the look they want by combining HDR, SDR and amic HDR graphics of devices.
The Verge reports that HDMI 2.1a will debut at CES 2022, even if HDMI LA won’t participate. Like all other HDMI 2.1-related features, SBTM will not be required for a device to carry the HDMI 2.1a tag.
On the other hand, with the disappearance of the HDMI 2.0 standard, some complex situations arose. You can take a look at the HDMI standard and the details on the subject in this article.
