Vendor Panasonic has joined the HDBaseT Alliance as a contributor member to promote and standardise the technology.
HDBaseT technology is powered by the Valens HDBaseT chipset and enables the distribution of uncompressed HD video (including 4K), audio, power, controls and Ethernet over a single LAN cable.
Panasonic has a range of almost 20 HDBaseT-enabled projectors and displays, including the world’s first 1080p lamp-free professional projector with HDBaseT. Referred to as DIGITAL LINK, the HDBaseT enabled projectors and displays enable a single CAT5e and above cable to transmit uncompressed HD videos, audio and control commands up to 100 meters.
"For projects such as a digital signage network and equipping a boardroom or conference room with a new Panasonic projector or state-of-the-art display, installers can realise significant time and cost savings by running the single CAT cable," said the Alliance in a statement.
“Panasonic is not just a strong advocate for HDBaseT, it is also a market-leading provider of HDBaseT-enabled components, that has played and will continue to play a critical role in growing the ecosystem of HDBaseT products,” said Micha Risling, marketing chair of the HDBaseT Alliance.
"Its success with integrating HDBaseT into projectors and professional displays reflects the success the HDBaseT Alliance has enjoyed in terms of growing to more than 80 members offering solutions that enable end-to-end deployment of HDBaseT.”
The HDBaseT Alliance was founded by LG Electronics, Samsung Electronics, Sony Pictures and Valens Semiconductor.
