4K UHD HDBaseT Applications

Cabling to Support 4K UHD HDBaseT™ Applications


What Is This White Paper About?

HDBaseT™ networking technology enables HDMI signals to be transmitted over balanced twisted-pair cabling. This allows AV system designers to combine the benefits of HDBaseT and category cabling by transmitting uncompressed high-definition video, audio, Ethernet, control, USB and remote power over a single network cable, extending reach up to 100 m from the AV source to the display.
