The HPDC has established two standing Advisory Panels: the Manufacturer Advisory Panel (MAP) and the User Advisory Panel (UAP).

The role of the Advisory Panels is to assist in the development of the HPD Open Standard and other deliverables by providing new ideas and review of proposals, working with the Technical Committee in an advisory capacity.

Membership in the Advisory Panels is open to any Member (General and Affiliate), based on their member category affiliation (manufacturer, user).
