I seriously have been urging customers to keep video components close to TVs because of this. With the current a cost and headaches of video distribution and extenders it’s just not worth it for people and my own time

8K60 and 4K120, and resolutions up to 10K. Dynamic HDR formats are also supported, and bandwidth capability is increased up to 48Gbps.

I think this is going to be a nightmare...the current HDMI stuff doesn't work reliably.

What a joke.

Hey Mr Customer the system we completed yesterday on your new home is now obsolete. Thank you for spending 150k with us and if you want the latest and greatest we need to open up your walls and rewire the home. Trash all your TVs and all the backend gear. The upgrade should only cost another 200k. Oh yeah and please tell all your friends about us!

Can someone please make the case that it's not NECESSARY to get this latest stuff? As well as showing what size a screen has to be for the added resolution even to be noticed by those* who should be able to see it?

well we should make a rule in this industry that we need to get one technology working perfectly before we step up to the next level. Ha, ha, that'' never happen.
Chasing Ernie's post count, one useless post at a time.

You're all overthinking this.
It'll all work over simple 22/2 security wire with wire nuts.
Either that or it'll be wireless.

Tell that to the idiots who just have to be the first on their block to have things that will make women scream, babies faint and men cry.

I have to wonder why anyone would want to be on the bleeding edge of this BS.

Couldn't agree with this more. Why ask a customer to spend $25k on something that in 1 years they will need to replace or be out of date. Makes for an unhappy customer! I get there are a lot of customers who are more than happy with updating things every 5-10 years but techies and millennial's want the latest now.

In honor of the announcement of HDMI 2.1, we should all chip in and send a congratulations gift to Julie's friend that created HDMI.

I suggest something from this company

Other than possible DD issues, start putting mini cable boxes, ATVs, Rokus behind the TV with optical cable back to rack. Get you a big roll of industrial Velcro and lotsa Snap 0.7 meter HDMIs. The new rack setup for the new digital frontier.
