IP to TV cables

June 1, 2009

Digital video and audio cables will soon come with a new capability: connecting those devices to the Internet. Manufacturers say version 1.4 of the HDMI standard, for High-Definition Multimedia Interface, includes a data networking feature.

That means that a set-top box that connects to the Internet could share its connection with other devices in the entertainment centre, for easier access to Web video, e-mail and news, says Steve Venuti, president and CEO of HDMI Licensing.
