BEAVERTON, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The HDBaseT Alliance today announced that Belkin has joined the Alliance, enabling Belkin to integrate HDBaseT technology into its lines of audio/video products for commercial and consumer applications. Belkin has also announced its new HDBaseT HDMI audio/video extender solution for high performance AV connectivity over Cat5e long distance applications.
The HDBaseT technology enables the delivery of uncompressed high definition video, audio, Internet, controls and power over a single cat5e/6 cable up to 100 meters, eliminating the common issues professional installers face concerning cable distance and location of available power outlets.
“Joining the HDBaseT Alliance presents us with an exciting opportunity to add our solutions to the expanding HDBaseT product ecosystem, and play a role in helping the technology itself evolve to meet the demands of our customers,” said Sydney Wen, product development manager, Belkin. “Our new HDBaseT products provide unique benefits for AV installers by providing a long-distance solution that significantly reduces the time and labor costs associated with installation and management.”
“Belkin has established itself as a trusted developer for audio/visual products for businesses and consumers worldwide,” said Micha Risling, marketing chair for the HDBaseT Alliance. “Adding Belkin to the HDBaseT Alliance confirms that the demand for HDBaseT technology continues to grow, and Belkin will help meet that demand as it continues to integrate the technology into its products.”
The Belkin HDBaseT provides installers with a point-to-point solution that ensures interoperability when working with components from multiple AV brands. It eliminates the requirement for setting up a complex network of runner cables, pigtails, breakouts or color-coded wall plates by deploying a universal protocol for heterogeneous AV environments. It also supports custom long-run capability with PVC, Plenum and Riser.
The new Belkin HDBaseT is available now through Belkin’s worldwide network of distributors and value added resellers.
