LAS VEGAS - Onkyo has joined the
short list of component-audio suppliers with announced plans to offer
components with HDMI 1.4 connections.

The
brand will introduce its first HDMI 1.4-capable products in the spring but said
the products wouldn't be displayed at International CES. All new A/V receivers
will incorporate the interface, said marketing manager Paul Wasek.

Sherwood
announced plans at CES to launch its first two products with HDMI 1.4, and at
CES, at least one other audio company will launch an HDMI 1.4-capable product.

In Onkyo
A/V receivers, HDMI 1.4 will support 3D video and audio return channel
capabilities, the company said. The audio return channel lets a TV with HDMI
1.4 input send audio data "upstream" over an HDMI cable to an A/V receiver or
surround processor, eliminating the need for a separate S/PDIF audio
connection.
