The HDBaseT Alliance was founded in 2010 by LG Electronics, Samsung, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Valen Semiconductor to promote the use of HDBaseT Technology. A HDBaseT device would enable a single LAN cable to replace multiple cables and connectors in a home or business environment. A single cable using this technology can go up to 100 meters and you can have up to eight connections (8×100).
The base technology is 5Play which allows one CAT5e/6 LAN cable to handle uncompressed HD video, 4K video, audio, ethernet and even power, You can connect one device to multiple displays in multiple rooms. For example you could connect one blue ray player to multiple monitors in different rooms. The system will also pass along an infrared signal and will also works with a wireless system.
The HDBaseT Alliance has recently been joined by Panasonic, Pioneer, Epson and Belkin. The alliance deals both with manufactures but also talks to consumers. They realize that the consumer is the one that often pressures manufactures to install the new technology. More information about the HDBaseT Alliance can be found at their website
