This icon needs to be broken into a couple explanations, 4K refers to the native resolution of 4K, as described in the icon above. 60Hz refers to the how many frames are shown per second. There are many frame rates, but most common are 24, 25, 30, 50, and 60. The higher the frame rate, the more data. As an example, HDMI 1.4 could handle Ultra HD/4K with 4:4:4 24Hz, as the bitrate 8.91 gigabits/second (Gbps). The same signal at 60Hz comes in at 17.2 Gbps.

4:4:4 refers to the colour compression scheme, called chroma subsampling. Without getting too detailed 4:4:4 means there is no colour compression, thus providing pristine colour accuracy.  Other options are 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 colour compression. For more information on chroma subsampling, head over to

18 Gbps is based on the HDMI 2.0 standard, which was released in 2013. This means that the cable is capable of handling 18 billion bits per second.

HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. HDR is a newer advancement in television which enables displays to show a greater range between the black and white levels on a display (called dynamic range). The greater the dynamic range, the more detail one can see in an image. There are various versions of HDR and each one has its pros and cons. The most common forms are HDR10, HDR10+, DolbyVision

High Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) is the latest version of copyright protection, which is embedded in HDMI and DisplayPort. HDCP 2.2 was released in 2015 and is backwards compatible. Devices requiring HDCP 2.2 must have 2.2 compliant devices from source all the way to the device.

ARC, or Audio Return Channel, is a feature that started in HDMI 1.4 and allows for audio to transmit from a television to a receiver or other device, as opposed to only sending audio from a source such as a Blu-Ray player to a television or receiver. This is a very useful feature for those “cutting the cord” where off air antennas are used or built-in streaming applications such as Netflix, which allows for a better listening experience by bypassing television speakers, which are usually substandard quality.
