4K Resolution - The High Speed HDMI® Cable has sufficient bandwidth to transfer 4K video signals between 4K rated source and sink (display) devices.
Audio Return Channel - Normally, your HDMI® cable carries audio information along with the video from a source device (e.g. blu-ray player) to the sink device (display/television). Often times this goes through an AV receiver to drive a home theater audio system. The Audio Return Channel is primarily used to send the audio signal generated by the television, when its internal tuner is used, back to the AV receiver, so that you can use your home theater audio system when watching television signals.
3D - 3D is the latest rage for both home theater and gaming. A High Speed HDMI® Cable is capable of handling the high bandwidth requirements of 3D signals.
4K - The 4K resolution is 3840 x 2160 pixels @ 24 Hz, which is four times that of a 1080p display and the same resolution used by state-of-the-art Digital Cinema systems. A High Speed HDMI Cable is capable of handling the high bandwidth required for 4K support.

Other versions of Deep Color allow for up to 16-bits per element, for a total of 48-bits and over 281 trillion color variations, which really makes your video images come to life!
