With the advent of HDTV in 1998, an all-digital TV interface became a necessity. This led to upstart Silicon Image partnering with six Consumer Electronics behemoths, and the introduction of HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) in 2002. It is now ubiquitous, with over 10 billion HDMI-capable devices sold worldwide. Like USB, it has simplified users’ lives, and is one of the most successful electronics standards in the history of Consumer Electronics and computers. You are quite possibly only inches away from both an HDMI and a USB connector as you read these words.
In this talk, Jano Banks will tell the story of how a small company that had first made its mark with a high-speed Serial Link for laptops created an interface that the likes of Sony, Panasonic, Hitachi, Toshiba, Thomson, and Philips would trust to be foundational for the future of television – and it wasn’t without some Hollywood drama.
