Dr Flick has posted the latest edition of The Custom Integrator Show, in instalment 025 we talk about DLNA/UPnP apps for the iPhone, 3D and CEC in HDMI. As ever Derek dives in to the details as we talk about CEC (Consumer Electronics Control)
There has been a lot of confusion regarding CEC, proprietary implementations (cross-vendor compatibility), and interoperability. Fortunately, there finally is a trend with many of the newer products to work across different vendors’ implementations. It still takes some sort of UI to set the CEC relationships up initially and certain vendors do a better job at that than others, but they are improving all of the time. My view is that we finally are starting to see a workable cross-product CEC solution from several vendors which actually lives up to the original vision conceived by the HDMI founders.
