Some of those are known as Sony BRAVIA’s Theatre Sync, LG’s SimpLink or EZ Sync from Panasonic; much like some manufacturer advertises the IEEE link with Denon link or Sony’s I.link. Those traditional CEC feature devices require a separate CEC controller for its HDMI transmitter but Analog Devices looks to offer CE makers with much simpler solution and industry’s first on-chip CEC from its ADV7510 HDMI transmitter.
