Company's VE812 and VE814 HDMI Extenders Currently Support HDBaseT Technology and Plans to Launch Professional A/V Products Integrating this Standard

ATEN International, the world-leading designer and manufacturer of advanced connectivity and management solutions, today announced it has joined the HDBaseT Alliance as an adopter member to deliver the added benefits of HDBaseT technology to customers and partners. The HDBaseT Alliance is a cross-industry alliance founded by LG Electronics, Samsung Electronics, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Valens to promote and standardize HDBaseT technology for whole-home distribution of uncompressed HD multimedia content.


HDBaseT technology enables a single LAN cable to replace multiple cables and connectors in home entertainment and business environments. The cornerstone of HDBaseT technology is 5Play, a feature set that converges uncompressed Full HD video, audio, 100Mb Ethernet connectivity, power, and control signals through a single CAT5e/6 cable. HDBaseT is optimized for professional A/V installations and provides a simple and cost-effective solution to transmit A/V signals up to 100 meters.

"HDBaseT represents the next significant step in the evolution of ATEN's professional A/V solutions and helps our customers and partners to reduce installation time and costs by using a single CAT5e/6 cable," explained Kevin Chen, President of ATEN International. "Integrating HDBaseT technology into our products will not only make setup and control faster and easier, but will ensure compatibility with other leading professional A/V solutions."

As an HDBaseT Alliance member, ATEN will help define the future of multimedia transmission and data communication in the consumer electronics and content provider industries. It will have access to and can provide feedback on finalized specifications and updates.

"The momentum behind the rapid acceptance and implementation of the HDBaseT technology continues to grow with companies like ATEN International joining the HDBaseT Alliance," said Ariel Sobelman, president, HDBaseT Alliance. "ATEN's decision to join the Alliance will enable its customers to leverage the HDBaseT technology to reduce the complexities and costs of their projects."

ATEN's VE812 and VE814 HDMI extenders currently support HDBaseT technology that allows to extend 4k2k video up to 100 meters using one Cat 5e cable, and the company plans to integrate this industry standard into other professional A/V products such as 4k2k media distribution solution in the near future.
