HDBaseT™ technology was designed to offer an industry standard connectivity solution for extending HDMI® digital video content beyond the 20 meter maximum supported by native HDMI cabling in most solutions. HDBaseT is positioned to support Ultra HD, a high resolution video format that delivers more than four times the resolution of current HD displays. There are currently nearly 4 million HDBaseT systems deployed, and that number is expected to grow to more than 21 million by 2016. C2G offers HDMI over Cat5 and HDMI + Serial RS232 over Cat5 products which utilize HDBaseT technology.
HDBaseT is built on the concept of 5Play™ which supports HD Video, Audio, 100BaseT Ethernet, Control and Power—all over a single Cat5 cable at a distance of up to 328 feet.
HDBaseT supports uncompressed HD video at 1080p and other resolutions of up to 4K. HDMI supports features such as 3D, HDCP, EDID Pass Through and CEC Control. This allows content to be viewed at the optimum performance level of the display.
HDBaseT supports all standard audio formats, including Dolby® Digital, Dolby® TrueHD, DTS®, and DTS–HD Master Audio™. This ensures that audio content is delivered at the highest performance level.
HDBaseT provides 100Mb Ethernet, allowing communication between televisions, sound systems, computers and other devices. This allows devices to access stored media content, such as music or streaming video.
HDBaseT allows CEC, Serial RS232, USB, IR or IP control communication between devices. This allows the user to more easily set up, use, and change connected devices.
HDBaseT is able to support the delivery of up to 100 Watts of DC power. This provides the freedom to place devices where they need to be, rather than only at the location of an available power source.
