HPD 2.0 Standard

5/16/17 – Update on HPD 2.0 Status

On May 16, 2017, HPDC released a new version of the HPD Open Standard – version 2.1.  Version 2.1 is a “dot release” of the Standard, introducing updates and new options.  This page contains further information on version 2.1 – HPD Version 2.1.

Completed HPDs based on HPD Open Standard 2.0 remain fully valid through their published Expiry Date.  Updating to the 2.1 Standard is encouraged, but is not required.

HPD Open Standard 2.0 is also still valid for creating HPDs.  HPDC makes available an automated tool to assist manufacturers in creating HPDs – HPD Builder.  The updated version of HPD Builder – to the 2.1 Standard – is planned for availability in June 2017.  Until it becomes available, HPD Builder 2.0 remains the easiest method for creating an HPD.  Once HPD Builder 2.1 is released, it will be possible to use the Builder tool to update existing 2.0-based HPDs to the 2.1 Standard.  For further information on HPD Builder, please see the Builder page on our website, or contact us at support@hpd-collaborative.org.
