Belkin Debuts Plug-and-Play HDBaseT HDMI Solution
By AV Network Staff On January 22, 2013
Belkin has released its new HDBaseT HDMI audio/video extender solution for AV connectivity over Cat5e long distance applications.
The plug-and-play solution is designed to eliminate the challenges of long-distance AV applications, including confusing, expensive and time consuming technology, with a quick-to-install solution that can transmit AV over a single Cat5e cable up to 100 meters.
The Belkin HDBaseT is a point-to-point solution that resolves incompatibility issues across multiple AV brands. It deploys a universal protocol for heterogeneous AV environments without the use of a complex network of runner cables, pigtails, breakouts or color coded wall plates. It also supports custom long-run capability with PVC, Plenum and Riser. The result is a long-distance AV solution that requires little labor to install and manage.
“We designed our HDBaseT solution to help AV installers achieve more without spending needless time or resources,” said Sydney Wen, product development manager for Belkin. “It’s an ideal choice for long-distance AV environments—including education, government, conference centers and signage applications—because it packs superior performance into a small, plug-and-play solution that requires a fraction of the resources to set up, move and manage.”
The new Belkin HDBaseT is available now through Belkin’s worldwide network of distributors and value added resellers. All HDBaseT products come with a Belkin warranty (up to five years) and 24-hour tech support.
