The purpose of our tests is to reproduce real use cases that may occur in the end user home when connecting HDMI products together.

If interoperability issues are seen, teams will have time and resources to find the root cause of these issues. This is a good reason for engineers that have worked on HDMI hardware or software to participate in this event.If interoperability issues are seen, teams will have time and resources to find the root cause of these issues.
