If you’re in the process of building an entertainment system or adding additional TVs to rooms in your home, you may be limited with what you can do due to wire and cable restrictions. Luckily there is a solution to avoid cable clutter while still delivering ultra-high-definition video. The global standard, HDBaseT technology, empowers plug-and-play digital connectivity between HD video sources and remote displays.
HDBaseT technology is the connectivity standard for transmission of uncompressed ultra-high-definition video, audio, power, home networking, Ethernet, USB and some control signals over a common category cable. The technology enables communication between televisions, sound systems, computers, and other CE devices as well as music or video streaming. The great thing about HDBaseT technology is that it enables multiple control signals for multiple purposes, providing endless opportunities. Since the range of HDBaseT technology is greater than that of HDMI, you can easily connect your A/V receiver or multi-room system to TVs located inside and outside your home.
The good news is that millions of new homes already have the needed wiring installed, making it easier for installers to get your HDTV and home automation components attached to a central HDBaseT media hub. Depending on your needs, a few components are useful to get the most out of your HDBaseT system.
HDBaseT transmitters and receivers are designed to extend HDMI signals over long distances. The transmitters are designed for in-wall cable installations, providing a slim and discreet look.
HDBaseT Switches and Amplifiers support the most current HDBaseT specifications and allow you to easily switch between multiple source devices on a single TV or display and extend the source signal long distances. Connect all your gadgets—cable boxes, game consoles, Blu-ray players, etc., and easily choose which source to display on the TV. Matrix Switches are also available which can transmit HDMI signal from up to 16 sources to 16 displays.
