Video Bandwidth
HDMI - 18 GBP/sec
HDBaseT - 10.2 GPBS Max

Video Resolutions
All SMPTE & VESA in HDMI 2.0 Specification. Max SMPTE UHD - 4096x2160P60/RGB/4:4:4 8-bit.
Max for HDBaseT port is 2160P60/4:2:0 8-bit (HDBaseT/CAT limitation)

Color Space

Color Bit Depth
8-bit, 10-bit, 12-bit & 16-bit per pixel
Note: Resolution and video bandwidth limited – ex. 2160P60 RGB or 4:4:4 8-bit would use almost the entire 18 GBPS of bandwidth. 2160P60 4:2:2 10-bit (new Blu Ray) would exceed the previous 10.2 GBPS maximum of HDMI 1.4a and would not be able to travel over category cable using HDBaseT as of this writing.

Chroma Subsampling
4:4:4, 4:2:2, 4:2:0
See note above – chroma subsampling or color compression is related to bit depth and video resolution settings with regard to total bandwidth requirements. A 4K/60 signal at 4:4:4 chroma subsampling can have a maximum bit depth of 8 bits.

HDMI in & Out – Up to Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master
SPDIF – Up to Dolby Digital & DTS 5.1
