Belkin Simplifies the Delivery of AV Connectivity Over Long Distances With Release of HDBaseT HDMI Audio/Video Extender

New Low-Cost, Easy to Deploy Solution Provides Universal Protocol for AV over Cat5e Long Distance Applications

2013 BICSI Winter Conference


TAMPA, Fla.--Belkin today announced its new HDBaseT HDMI audio/video extender solution for high performance AV connectivity over Cat5e long distance applications. The plug-and-play solution eliminates the traditional challenges of long-distance AV applications, including confusing, expensive and time consuming technology, with a quick-to-install solution that can transmit AV over a single Cat5e cable up to 100 meters. Belkin will demonstrate the HDBaseT HDMI AV extender solution at the annual BICSI Winter Conference & Exhibition taking place in Tampa, Florida, January 20-24, 2013.

The Belkin HDBaseT is a point-to-point solution that resolves incompatibility issues across multiple AV brands. It deploys a universal protocol for heterogeneous AV environments without the use of a complex network of runner cables, pigtails, breakouts or color coded wall plates. It also supports custom long-run capability with PVC, Plenum and Riser. The result is a long-distance AV solution that requires dramatically less labor to install and manage.

"We designed our HDBaseT solution to help AV installers achieve more without spending needless time or resources," said Sydney Wen, product development manager for Belkin. "It's an ideal choice for long-distance AV environments - including education, government, conference centers and signage applications - because it packs superior performance into a small, plug-and-play solution that requires a fraction of the resources to set up, move and manage."

The new Belkin HDBaseT is available now through Belkin's worldwide network of distributors and value added resellers. All HDBaseT products come with a Belkin warranty (up to five years) and 24-hour tech support. For more information, visit http://www.belkin.com/us/business/enterprise.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
