The agent responsible for licensing the High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) specification announced late last week that it has lowered the annual administration fee for those adopting the spec by 33 percent.
The fee reduction will apply to HDMI annual fee payments that come due after Nov. 1, 2006. To date, more than 400 makers of consumer electronics and PC products worldwide have adopted HDMI.
The China Video Industry Association (CVIA), a consumer electronics association in China, endorses the decision to lower the fee and will promote the use of HDMI among the nation’s consumer electronics industry.
