Exploring HDBaseT in new CEDIA whitepaper

CEDIA has released a new whitepaper on HDBaseT, the cable considered the global standard for transmitting ultra-HD video and audio.

‘HDBaseT for 4K & 8K Video’ is the latest whitepaper released in the organisation’s strategic mission to serve as the primary source of design and installation standards, guidelines, and best practices for the home technology integration industry. 

With expertise from Blustream, the whitepaper looks at the development of HDBaseT, its specifications and its ongoing evolution.

Covering the subject in detail, it looks at bandwidth challenges, compression compatibility, Power-over-HDBaseT (PoH) approaches, system design, and more. 

After tapping into the heavily vetted source materials, CEDIA includes details that run the gamut from the highly technical to the practical.

CEDIA’s senior director of technology and standards, Walte Zerbe commented: “We examine the topic of HDBaseT to provide more clarity for integrators on a highly complex technology that is seeing increased adoption and a growing slate of use scenarios. 

“HDBaseT has been on the market for over a decade and systems are emerging every day that deliver better sound and picture, demanding this top-level pipeline. 

“The goal of the whitepaper is to foster a broader perspective of the technology’s full scope of application, so members can be prepared for what’s next.”

Other whitepapers released from CEDIA recently include ‘AV-Over-IP Systems’, ‘Quality of Power’, and ‘Integrators Guide to Video: Colorimetry’. 

‘HDBaseT for 4K & 8K Video’ is available now to CEDIA members who have complimentary access, and is available to non-members for $99.
