HDBaseT Hopes to Take On HDMI in the Living Room

LG Electronics, Samsung and Sony all backed the HDBaseT Alliance this week, a new wired standard for the living room that hopes to replace the ubiquitous HDMI cable. With the finalization of the specification, the HDBaseT alliance said that it envisions other companies licensing it during the second half of 2010, with first products (most likely from the member companies) appearing by the end of the year. More widespread adoption could take place in early 2011. Unlike HDMI, which merely transfers uncompressed audio and video data, HDBaseT uses what it calls 5Play: the transfer of audio and video data, plus 100BaseT Ethernet, and even power, plus control signals.
