Valens and Lattice Semiconductor deliver HDBaseT 4K 60Hz 4:4:4 reference design

Reference designs aren’t intrinsically news, but since they are an essential tool to enable product flexibilty (i.e. smaller OEMs can play too). I think it’s worth highlighting this announcement. Afterall, who doesn’t want to see a plethera of 4K 60Hz 4:4:4 devices; creating a more competative market :).   Valens and Lattice Semiconductor Partner to Deliver HDBaseT Reference Design to […]

HDBaseT over IP announced at ISE

It’s not a huge drawback if you only use your Ethernet network for A/V, but if you have other goals HDBaseT’s exclusive use of the HW is a limitation. Or, was a limitation. Because the technology will now work over IP networks. Now it will probably take a while for product to hit the market, so we’ll be sure to […]

HDBaseT To Become IEEE standard

For the podcast fans, you already know we are all huge fans of HDBaseT. It makes the most sense to find new, better ways to use existing infrastructure rather than require a whole new wiring scheme, which is what HDBaseT at its core accomplishes. While to this point applications have primarily been in businesses, the standard has slowly worked its […]

HDBaseT @ CES 2014

  2014 will not be the year that HDBaseT becomes a mainstream DIY technology, but it is getting much closer. When we stopped by their booth this year, they had products – yes, actual products that you can buy, on display including AVR, projectors, and TVs. Now, most of kit won’t come cheap, after all HDBaseT is still targeted mostly […]

HDBaseT 2.0 Specification Released


It shouldn’t come as a surprise that I find HDBaseT an incredibly interesting technology. What’s not to love about simplified distribution of audio, video, Ethernet and control over a single cable? OK, there is one thing – price. HDBaseT is expensive, so it only ends up in the high-end components. Fortunately this is something that they are aware of and […]

HDBaseT @ CES 2013


I love the concept of HDBaseT. Run some Cat5e/6, add a switch and some devices that support HDBaseT (or adapters if using “legacy” devices) into the mix and you get a whole home media distribution network capable of pushing 100MB, 100W of power, audio/video, and control anywhere. With the right devices, you can do everything with just one cable. There […]

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 […]
