 — HDBaseT-enabled products guarantee best performance and user experience to handle COVID-19 challenges–


CEDIA EXPO, September 15, 2020 –  High-quality residential AV distribution has become increasingly essential as more people are working and learning from home, and limiting any activities outside their space. HDBaseT is the most optimized technology to guarantee a superior residential experience, with long-reach distribution of high-speed video and data and plug-and-play architecture.

The HDBaseT Alliance, the cross-industry association tasked with promoting and advancing the HDBaseT standard, is engaged with its members to provide enhanced solutions to address the needs of the market today. HDBaseT is the ultimate technology to addres the different needs of the residential market:

  • Outdoor displays: To take full advantage of our backyards, high-quality AV distribution and resilience to handle hot or cold weather, rain and even snow is critical. HDBaseT optimizes outdoor display installations, providing superior quality over long-distances. Leading manufacturers, such as LG, Samsung & Seura have recently launched HDBaseT-enabled, high-performance outdoor displays to address the needs of the market. HDBaseT enables ultra-bright picture quality, delivering high visibility even during the day, over long reach cables with no latency.
  • Remote working & learning: HDBaseT presents an affordable solution to extend USB2.0 for up to 100m/328ft over a single twisted pair, in addition to Ethernet, audio, and control interfaces, while enabling power distribution over the remaining pairs.This is particularly beneficial for the extension of USB accessories such as cameras and audio devices, which is necessary to upgrade the working and learning from home environments. HDBaseT is also the optimal solution for a hybrid educational solution, catering both to students at home, or classes divided in separate, smaller spaces with only one teacher.
  • Home Theater: As a result of travel limitations during this pandemic, home entertainment has become a must. HDBaseT allows upgrading of the home entertainment system, connecting high-end displays and projectors in an elegant installation with no cable clutter, while maintaining the highest image quality and supporting all the latest high quality video formats. HDBaseT is the only long-distance video distribution solution in the market  that delivers uncompressed HDMI2.0.
