The HDMI Forum was formed to foster broader industry participation in the development of the next generation of the HDMI Specification and to support an ecosystem of interoperable HDMI-enabled products. The HDMI Specification combines uncompressed high-definition video, multi-channel audio, and data in a single digital interface to provide crystal-clear digital quality over a single cable. The organization brings together the world’s leading manufacturers of consumer electronics, personal computers, mobile devices, cables and components.
Chartered as a nonprofit, mutual benefit corporation, the mission of the HDMI Forum is to:
- Create and develop new versions of the HDMI Specification and the Compliance Test Specification, incorporating new and improved functionality
- Encourage and promote the adoption and widespread use of its Specifications worldwide
- Support an ecosystem of fully interoperable HDMI-enabled products
- Provide an open and non-discriminatory licensing program with respect to its Specifications
Membership is open to anyone wishing to make an active and material contribution to the development of future HDMI Specifications. Members of the HDMI Forum are eligible to participate in the Technical Working Group, where details of the new Specifications will be developed, as well as in other Working Groups and General Meetings of the Forum. Any Member may also nominate a candidate for the Board of Directors, the Forum’s executive authority, and if elected may sit on the Board.
