HDBaseT Tells 4K to “Bring it!”
HDBaseT has been catching on amongst manufacturers for a while as a robust means of moving signals long distances over an affordable cable. HDBaseT is easily added to any system in various forms such as adding a transmitter by the source and receiver by the display. A regular HDMI cable connects the source or A/V receiver to the transmitter which then sends the signal over a Cat 5/6 cable to the receiver which then turns it back into HDMI for connection to the display.
The technology is now field tested and proven and transmitters be found in various receivers from Pioneer and Onkyo and receivers built-in to several projectors and displays. In fact both NEC and Samsung had new TVs on display at CES incorporating HDBaseT’s tech.
At CES, HDBaseT demonstrated its ability to handle 4K video and assure that no matter where you decide to put your 4K player – whatever that may be – it will be ready to handle it!
