Cedia 2011 - HDBaseT
One cable to rule them all! The promise has been made many times, but HDBaseT seems poised to actually pull it off. The question is how long until everyone can get it? The HDBaseT Alliance was showing off some of the early hardware at Cedia and it definitely looks impressive. The TV in the picture is not only getting audio and video via a single wire, but power, as well! This is thanks to the new power over HDBaseT spec (PoH?). Click on over to CoccoonTech to see their video coverage from Cedia.
The HDBaseT Alliance was founded by LG, Samsung, Sony and Valens Semiconductor in June of 2010, so things have been moving pretty fast. With several products already supporting HDBaseT, it's poised to become a major player in the home theater industry. They also JUST released the Power Over HDBaseT (HDBT) specification.
