The HDBaseT Alliance, the cross-industry group tasked with promoting and advancing the HDBaseT standard, announced today the development of an extension to the HDBaseT standard to support an HDBaseT over IP specification, and address the evolving needs of the audiovisual sector.
- Availability of a standardized solution over Ethernet PHY, promoting 5Play interoperability among different vendors;
- Connecting the traditional ProAV and IP worlds, while leveraging existing installations;
- Increased versatility to integrate different products, from in-room, point-to-point to large-scale, cross-campus installations;
- ProAV-grade robustness and quality of service for unicast and multicast sessions, not yet available in alternative AV over IP solutions today;
- Compliance with HDCP.
The introduction of HDBaseT over an Ethernet PHY is a key element towards accomplishing the Alliance’s goal of providing a holistic approach to all use cases and market sectors, simplifying the transmission of high-throughput content over any medium.
“HDBaseT over IP brings unprecedented modularity and breadth of scope to the existing HDBaseT solutions available today. Whether over a 10G, 5G, 2.5G, or even 1G Ethernet PHY, HDBaseT over IP expands the realm of possibilities for AV professionals. It allows our customers combining traditional HDBaseT installations with HDBaseT over IP deployment networking the in-room to the cross-campus, with increased ease and flexibility. By standardizing HDBaseT over IP, the Alliance continues to attend to the changing demands of our industry.”
