BEAVERTON, Ore. — 2011 International CES — HDBaseT Alliance, the cross-industry alliance formed to promote and standardize HDBaseT™ technology for whole-home distribution of uncompressed high-definition (HD) multimedia content, today announced it will demonstrate its HDBaseT technology as a whole-home networking solution at International CES 2011 in Las Vegas, Jan. 6-9, 2011. The demonstration will showcase an HDBaseT network, connecting several devices between a living room, bedroom and home office setting using a single LAN cable.

As consumer electronic (CE) devices proliferate within the home, consumers are strategically placing these devices in various locations and demanding the flexibility to easily push and consume entertainment content. Although this networked experience is possible with current wired technologies, most are not conducive to saving money, space nor time, and require several cables with unique connectors. The HDBaseT standard provides an all-in-one connectivity solution with its unmatched 5Play™ feature-set, converging full HD video, audio, Internet, 100 watts of power and controls through a single 100m/328ft LAN cable.

“HDBaseT is an all-in-one technology that capitalizes on an inexpensive, familiar cable and connector already installed in many homes, and is an ideal solution for the whole-home network of today,” said Ariel Sobelman, president of the HDBaseT Alliance. “This technology cuts down the bundle of cables and brings together a home’s CE devices into a feature-rich, yet efficient, network. HDBaseT enables a whole-home experience with the flexibility and features consumers demand, while using a single, long-reach LAN cable with RJ45 connectors, already common in households for its Ethernet use.”

About the HDBaseT Demonstration

The Alliance will showcase how an HDBaseT-connected home can send the 5Play™ feature set – full HD video, audio, Internet, controls and 100 watts of power – via a single, 100m/328ft LAN cable. In the live demonstration, the HDBaseT network will easily push content using a media hub controller, such as a personal smart phone. The living room, bedroom and home office settings will provide visitors with a hands-on experience of the HDBaseT-connected home. Using one controller, visitors will push content from a 3D Blu-ray player, game console and personal computer to strategically placed displays.
