The HDBaseT Alliance (Booth #2830) at CEDIA 2013 will showcase several new HDBaseT-enabled home entertainment audio/video receivers, projectors, displays and other components from several Alliance members including NEC, Onkyo and Pioneer.

"We're going to show a sampling of the ever-growing HDBaseT product ecosystem so the professional installers and systems integrators attending CEDIA will be able to see first-hand how they can reduce the time and complexities of each job by leveraging the HDBaseT technology end-to-end," said Micha Risling, Marketing Committee Chair, the HDBaseT Alliance.

The HDBaseT technology, powered by Valens chipset, enables all-in-one connectivity between HD video sources and remote displays through a single 100m/328ft CAT5e/6 cable, delivering uncompressed high definition 4k video, audio, Internet, control signals and up to 100 watts of power.

The HDBaseT Alliance will demonstrate the HDBaseT Multimedia Home Connectivity Solution, and HDBaseT home theater set-up connected to a single-wire TV.

HDBaseT 2.0

CEDIA attendees will also be able to see a demonstration of the capabilities of the new HDBaseT 2.0 specification at the Alliance booth. Released just last month, the new specification and its HDBaseT Multimedia Connected Home solution provide the single-cable benefits of HDBaseT, including high performance, reliability long cabling distances, and multi-room support to the CE market, making it simpler and more cost-effective for consumers to turn their entire homes into multimedia entertainment centers.
