Valens and ST Announced New Reference Design for Transmission over HDBaseT
29 January, 2013
The new reference design solution uses ST DP2650 and STDP2600 chipset and Valens’ VS100 chipset to transmit uncompressed video and audio over a single CAT5e/6 cable
Valens Semiconductor from Hod-Hasharon, Israel, has developed together with ST Microelectronics a new reference design solution for transmitting DisplayPort audio and video over HDBaseT.
The HDBaseT technology features the unique 5Play™ feature set that 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.
Until now, HDBaseT products were mainly transmitting HDMI and/or DVI. The new ST-Valens solution provides professional installers and systems integrators with the flexibility of being able to use the commonly-used DisplayPort interface.
The new reference design solution uses ST DP2650 and STDP2600 chipset and Valens’ VS100 chipset to transmit uncompressed video and audio over a single CAT5e/6 cable.
Valens provides semiconductor products for the distribution of uncompressed high-definition (HD) multimedia content. The company’s HDBaseT technology enables long-reach connectivity of devices over a single 100m/328ft standard CAT5e/6 LAN cable and is fast becoming the new, global standard for advanced digital media distribution.
Valens is a founding member of the HDBaseT Alliance, along with LG Electronics, Samsung Electronics and Sony Pictures Entertainment. Founded in 2010, the HDBaseT Alliance promotes HDBaseT technology for whole-home and commercial multimedia distribution.
Founded in 2006, Valens is a private company with offices in Israel, Japan, Hong-Kong, USA and local representatives in Korea, Taiwan and China.
