• Deliver full, uncompressed HD video, either to a network or a single point. It also supports all legacy products, is gaming-ready, and adds no latency to the transmission. It supports both television and personal computer graphics formats.
• Transmit audio with perfect fidelity. All standard formats are supported, and the transmission itself is ultimately delivered through the same media as visual content.
• Support a full 100BaseT Ethernet signal, meaning that your television, computer, stereo, or any other piece of consumer electronics can be connected into your local network, and communicate with your other devices.
• Actually power devices. It delivers 100 watts of power using standard Cat5e/Cat6 cable, and can passively extend up to 100m. Considering a 40” television set connected using HDBaseT uses only 70 watts, this is a relatively impressive load.
• Distribute control signals. HDBaseT also has the full array of standard control signals available, such as powering on and off, play versus stop, and more, including RS232, USB, and IR controls.
In addition to all this, it even uses standard Ethernet connectors. Because of all of these added advantages, electronics experts are predicting that this format will eventually overtake HDMI in popularity. What is HDBaseT? The future...
