HDBaseT Alliance Announces Incorporation, Finalized Specification


The HDBaseT technology enhances home distribution of uncompressed HD multimedia content, converging full uncompressed HD video, audio, 100BaseT Ethernet, power over cable and various control signals through a single 100m/328ft CAT5e/6 LAN cable.

Current A/V standards have introduced many different connectors such as S-Video, HDMI or DisplayPort. Instead of a new connector, the HDBaseT tecgnology is based on the Cat 5e/6 network cables, the typical ethernet cables you are using in your LAN.

The HDBaseT Alliance, the cross-industry alliance formed to promote and standardize the HDBaseT technology, today announced today its formal incorporation.

The Alliance is founded by LG Electronics, Samsung Electronics, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Valens Semiconductor, all of which comprise the HDBaseT Alliance?s Board of Directors.

The Alliance also announced the finalization of the HDBaseT 1.0 base specification. The development of this specification is set to transform the digital media ecosystem, allowing consumers to enjoy premium content through uninterrupted HD distribution without the tangle of cables currently required.

"HDBaseT Alliance?s creation of a unified specification based on HDBaseT technology will raise the bar as the most technologically advanced, unmatched solution for optimum digital media distribution," said Ariel Sobelman, president and chairman of the HDBaseT Alliance. "HDBaseT technology is poised to become the unrivaled next-generation home networking transport to meet the ever-changing trends in the digital media market."

The cornerstone of HDBaseT technology is 5Play, an feature-set that converges full uncompressed HD video, audio, 100BaseT Ethernet, high power over cable and various control signals through a single 100m/328ft CAT5e/6 LAN cable. HDBaseT has the bandwidth to support the highest video resolutions such as full HD 1080p as well as 3D and 2Kx4K formats. HDBaseT is the first to provide all-in-one connectivity, making it possible for a single-connector TV to receive power, video/audio, Internet and control signals from the same cable. HDBaseT supports cable lengths up to 328 feet.

HDBaseT enables a network of sources ? such as digital video recorders (DVR), Blu-ray disc players, game consoles, PCs and mobile devices ? to be connected directly to displays in multiple locations. For instance, a DVR can be connected to several TVs throughout the home. HDBaseT LAN based technology makes it possible to cut out the assortment of cables for audio, video, connecting CE devices and even the power source. This form of networking, whether it is done by daisy chaining devices or through star topology, can be applied in both the consumer home and in B2B cases such as digital signage networking.

HDBaseT increases the transfer distance of uncompressed HD multimedia content, expanding distribution, simplifying installation and lowering overall system cost.

The finalization of the HDBaseT specification paves the way for HDBaseT embedded products to hit the market. The HDBaseT Alliance anticipates products with embedded HDBaseT technology to be available in the second half of 2010, with the majority of adoption taking place in 2011. The specification will also be available for licensing within the second half of 2010.

Development and preparation for an HDBaseT Alliance Compliance Program is currently underway. The Alliance plans to formulate a logo usage and licensing program to ensure consistency and consumers? ability to recognize interoperable HDBaseT devices in the market.
