On Friday, HDMI Licensing announced a new cable standard that connects USB-C and HDMI devices… The idea, naturally enough, it is to develop an HDMI-to-USB Type-C cable that ties together the most common cabling protocols in both the PC and consumer electronics industries, eliminating the need for an adapter or special silicon. Source devices like PCs, tablets, and smartphones will be able to output HDMI video and multi-channel audio from a USB-C port, just as they can now with DisplayPort.
“The USB Type-C connector is gaining traction in the mobile and PC markets,” said HDMI Licensing, LLC president Rob Tobias. “Consumers expect to easily connect these devices to displays with a USB Type-C to HDMI cable and utilize the capabilities and features of native HDMI. This specification will also result in more source devices incorporating HDMI,” which already total about 6 billion, he said.
HDMI Licensing expects to see products launching with this new technology “early next year”
