InfoComm 2016: More HDBaseT Solutions in an HDBaseT World

Las Vegas, InfoComm 2016, June 8th, 2016 – The HDBaseT Alliance, the cross-industry group tasked with promoting and advancing HDBaseT technology, will welcome AV professionals during InfoComm International 2016, and showcase several new products, demos and solutions.  HDBaseT technology, powered by Valens, enables all-in-one connectivity between high-definition video sources and remote displays, through a single cable for up to 100 meters with category cable, or kilometers with fiber, including the transmission of uncompressed ultra-high-definition video & audio, Ethernet, control signals, up to 100W of power and USB.

As part of the Alliance’s new initiative – the HDBaseT Zone – Members are invited to join us to showcase their products and solutions in a stand of their own within the HDBaseT booth (C4823), and reiterate the strength of the HDBaseT community.  This year, the Alliance will host ten Members:
