This AV receiver completely supports the latest HDMI standards. With the transmission of 4K video at 60 frames per second pass-through, you can fully enjoy the high definition video quality of 4K without degradation. It also adheres to the HDCP2.2 copyright protection standard for 4K video transmission. It also supports HDR (High Dynamic Range) Video which provides enhanced picture quality by simultaneously enabling greater detail for both the dark and bright parts of an image although at launch this will require a firmware update when available.
