BEAVERTON, Ore. --(Business Wire)--
Alliance today announced that Belkin
has joined the Alliance, enabling Belkin to integrate HDBaseT technology
into its lines of audio/video products for commercial and consumer
applications. Belkin has also announced its new HDBaseT HDMI audio/video
extender solution for high performance AV connectivity over Cat5e long
The HDBaseT technology enables the delivery of uncompressed high
definition video, audio, Internet, controls and power over a single
cat5e/6 cable up to 100 meters, eliminating the common issues
professional installers face concerning cable distance and location of
available power outlets.
"Joining the HDBaseT Alliance presents us with an exciting opportunity
to add our solutions to the expanding HDBaseT product ecosystem, and
play a role in helping the technology itself evolve to meet the demands
of our customers," said Sydney Wen, product development manager, Belkin.

and labor costs associated with installation and management."

products for businesses and consumers worldwide," said Micha Risling,
marketing chair for the HDBaseT Alliance. "Adding Belkin to the HDBaseT
Alliance confirms that the demand for HDBaseT technology continues to
grow, and Belkin will help meet tat demand as it continues to integrate
the technology into its products."
The Belkin HDBaseT provides installers with a point-to-point solution
that ensures interoperability when working with components from multiple
AV brands. It eliminates the requirement for setting up a complex
network of runner cables, pigtails, breakouts or color-coded wall plates
by deploying a universal protocol for heterogeneous AV environments. It
also supports custom long-run capability with PVC, Plenum and Riser.
