is offering HDMI 1.4a inputs and outputs
in previously announced A/V receivers
and home theater in a box (HTiB) systems
to support 3D broadcast content,
the company said.

In March, the company unveiled its first
three A/V receivers and first three hometheater
receiver/speaker packages with
3D-capable HDMI 1.4 inputs and outputs.
Now the company is saying the six products
are actually shipping with HDMI 1.4a,
which adds support for the Side-By-Side
(Half) and Top-and-Bottom 3D formats
that broadcasters are adopting. Like before,
the devices are compatible with current
3D Blu-ray content.

The previously announced products
also support HDMI 1.4’s audio return
channel (ARC).

All other AVRs and HTiBs that Onkyo
will roll out this year will also feature HDMI
1.4a, the company added.

The previously announced AVRs are
the $299-suggested 5.1-channel TXSR308,
$399 7.1-channel TX-SR508,
and $599 7.2-channel TX-SR608. The
receiver/speaker packages are the $379-
suggested 5.1-speaker HT-S3300, $599
7.1-speaker HT-S5300, and $349 HTX-
22HDX, which is a 2.1-speaker HTiB with
virtual surround processing.
