Premium HDMI Cable Certification Now Available


HDMI Licensing, LLC has launched a Premium HDMI Cable Certification Program to ensure that consumers can enjoy the full 4K/UHD experience, with the latest feature-rich content that the HDMI specification enables. This new cable certification program applies to 4K/UHD-compatible high-speed cables that support HDMI 2.0 (and above), High Dynamic Range (HDR), and other advanced features. This program includes enhanced HDMI cable testing, as well as a sophisticated anti-counterfeiting label to differentiate these high-speed cables from standard HDMI cables. The new tamper-proof label will allow consumers to confirm the authenticity of these cables. The program also incorporates new test guidelines for EMI levels to minimize unwelcome RF interference from wireless devices, so that new 4K/UHD displays, sources, and cables will deliver an ultra-sharp 4K/UHD experience.



Allion can help cable vendors test Premium HDMI Cables for the highest levels of reliability and performance typically required for 4K/UHD content. Once cables have passed testing at Allion and are registered with HDMI Licensing, LLC, vendors can then promote their branded cables as Premium High Speed HDMI Cables or Premium High Speed HDMI Cables with Ethernet. Consumers can easily identify these HDMI Cables and be confident that the cables will reliably support the full 18 Gbps bandwidth specified by the HDMI 2.0 standard, which will grant them access to high-resolution 4K/UHD content.


Allion is an Authorized Testing Center (ATC) for HDMI compliance testing. Our HDMI platform experts are standing by at all times to help you meet the HDMI design criteria. Rather than spending over a half-million US dollars ($500,000) to establish your own test environment, you should choose Allion as your always on-call HDMI compliance partner.
