I would imagine these manufacturers have had the "final" specs for a bit of time now. My assumption would be that anything announced today would have HDMI 2.0 and be coming out on their normal release schedule with 2.0 included.
I doubt that has much to do with HDMI standards. They either don't have 4k technology ready, or they believe the market isn't ready to pay for it and would rather revise 1080p tech further. Just my thoughts, though. I obviously have no insider info.
HDMI 2.0 does not define new cables or new connectors. Current High Speed cables (Category 2 cables) are capable of carrying the increased bandwidth.[/indent]
Note the part that I have highlighted above that current high speed cable can handle the increased bandwidth of HDMI 2.0. Also of note is support for up to 32 channels of audio and also support for 'scope' aspect ratio of 21:9.
Can someone explain how they're going to eek out all of this bandwidth without a new cable design?
What about the higher end unit a few people on here have alluded to? Should we expect to get info on that today?
We have ben speculating only based on the 1000ES being 2 years old. We could see it in Berlin or in Denver or not at all. Its is speculation. Kraine just posted to a link for a 1100ES. So maybe its happening.
