HDMI 1.3b adds six benefits to the HDMI line of cables. The most obvious and easiest to understand is higher data transfer speed. The HDMI 1.3b standard increases single-link bandwidth to 340 MHz (10.2 Gbps), which will support demands of future HD display devices incorporating higher resolutions, Deep color and high frame rates. Keep in mind that previous versions of HDMI are fully capable of 1080p performance. Even more, the FCC has presented no imminent plans for a "higher" high-definition system than 1080p. Because 1080p has just begun to enter the market this increased bandwidth can be considered more a hedge against future applications than something the industry and consumers can benefit from in the near future.

  • Deep Color - HDMI 1.3 supports 10-bit, 12-bit and 16-bit (RGB or YCbCr) color depths, up from the 8-bit depths in previous versions of the HDMI specification, for stunning rendering of over one billion colors in unprecedented detail.
  • xvYCC (Video Color Space of television sets) - HDMI 1.3 adds support for “x.v.Color™” (which is the consumer name describing the IEC 61966-2-4 xvYCC color standard), which removes current color space limitations and enables the display of any color viewable by the human eye. 
  • Auto lip-sync - Because consumer electronics devices are using increasingly complex digital signal processing to enhance the clarity and detail of the content, synchronization of video and audio in user devices has become a greater challenge and could potentially require complex end-user adjustments. HDMI 1.3 incorporates automatic audio synching capabilities that allows devices to perform this synchronization automatically with total accuracy.

What is the rating for EMI/RFI shielding? How many layers of shielding?
There are 4 screened twisted pairs of OFC stranded conductors with a foam PolyEthylene insulation layer that improves the high frequency response for wide-bandwidth and effecient signal transfer. Aluminum foil wrapped around each twisted pair, AL foil wrapped around the whole inner cores and tinned copper braid shileding over all.

F - Even for audio bitstream formats that a given HDMI version cannot transport it may still be possible to decode the bitstream in the player and transmit the audio as LPCM with no loss of quality.
G - CEC has been in the HDMI specification since version 1.0 but has only begun to be used in CE products with HDMI version 1.3a.
H - Playback of SACD may be possible for older HDMI versions if the signal source (such as the Oppo 970) converts to LPCM. For those receivers that have only PCM DAC converters and not DSD this means that no additional resolution loss occurs.
I - Large number of additions and clarifications for CEC commands. One addition is CEC command allowing for volume control of an AV receiver.
