HDMI Adds Assoc. Adopter Program
SUNNYVALE, CALIF. –
HDMI Licensing, which acts as the licening agent the
High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) Specification, announced Tuesday
the creation of a new HDMI Associate Program, which is a marketing program
designed to officially recognize and support companies selling compliant HDMI
Eligible products will bear an HDMI Associate emblem so that consumers can
easily identify licensed products that are fully compliant with the HDMI specification
and are sourced from a licensed HDMI Adopter, the group said.
Although, all HDMI Adopters listed on the www.hdmi.org
website are required
to test their products for compliance, in cases where brand-name companies
source products from Adopters, the brand-name companies may not appear on
the HDMI Adopter list.
The HDMI Associate Program addresses this by offering an Associate Membership
to those companies who are not Adopters, but who source their HDMIenabled
products from a licensed Adopter.
An annual program membership fee of $3,000 entitles the Associate Member
to use the HDMI Associate emblem in marketing and packaging. Associate Members
will also be listed on the www.hdmi.org
website and have the opportunity
to participate in potential co-marketing opportunities with the HDMI Consortium,
including the HDMI TechZone at CES 2012, industry trade shows, developer
conferences, and worldwide road shows.
