There was an announcement today by the HDMI Licensing Organization. The press release says:


The specification has been updated to enable transmission of HDR formats, which provide enhanced picture quality by simultaneously enabling greater detail for both the dark and bright parts of an image. The HDR-related updates include references to CEA-861.3, CEA’s recently published update of HDR Static Metadata Extensions.

“We recognized that HDR would be a critical feature as the industry evolves. Our support for HDR enables our 800+ HDMI 2.0 Adopters to develop market-leading products that include HDR and will maintain interoperability across the entire HDMI ecosystem,” said Robert Blanchard, President of the HDMI Forum, Inc. “Along with the publication of the CEA extensions, the HDMI Forum continues to update the HDMI Specification and remain closely aligned with leading CE standards organizations.”

“By adding HDR, the HDMI Specification continues its history of supporting the latest formats and technologies planned for Hollywood content,” said Arnold Brown, Chairman of the HDMI Forum, Inc. Board of Directors.

Nothing about the increased bandwidth and new 3D frame-packed formats? *sigh* Does it mean they officially buried further 3D development?
If you are talking about UHD 3D then the first step needs to be for ITU to include UHD 3D support in h.265/HEVC. The current version of that spec. (i.e., version 2.0) doesn't include 3D support but it may be added in the future. One note in the HEVC spec. says:
"It is anticipated thatin future scalable or 3D video coding extensions of this Specification, this field will be used to specify the maximum number of layers that may be presentin the CVS, wherein a layer may e.g. be a spatial scalable layer, a quality scalablelayer, a texture view or a depth view."

Much appreciated for the info.
