Time and tide wait for no man and as we know neither does technology. No sooner have we been excited by the emergence of HDMI than there is a new kid on the block. 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. With HDBaseT a single LAN cable replaces multiple cables and connectors in the home entertainment and business environment.
HDBaseT uses a low frequency which not only allows it to run over standard CAT5e or Cat6 cable but as the signal is so low it does not become affected by electromagnetic interference. HDBaseT uses Power over Ethernet to source consumer electronic devices, such as low-power Blu-ray players, monitors and TVs, and eliminate the need for external power cables.
5Play from HDBaseT enables a network of sources, for example, Blu-ray disc players, game consoles, PCs and mobile devices, to be connected directly to displays in multiple locations. So as an example, you have a Blu-ray in your front room…..with HDBaseT you would it be to be able to watch your front room Blu-ray in your bedroom! HDBaseT enables a network of sources to be connected directly to displays in multiple locations. It allows users an independent yet fully compatible experience.
