[External] HDBaseT - Quality extension of digital signals

HDBaseT is a controlled and certified standard, meaning manufacturers of HDBaseT extenders has to live up to and guarantee a range of specifications, thereby making it a safe choice across the globe to ensure the same quality in installations. Compare that to localized off-brand Ethernet/cat5 extenders which are often "hit and miss" regarding their distance and quality capabilities. 

The main advantages of HDBaseT fit perfectly in with the Wexer installations:

  • Long-distance transmission: 100m/328ft with a single hop, or even more with several hops
  • Signal convergence: audio & video, Ethernet, controls, USB, and power over a single cable, eliminating clutter, simplifying installation, with reduced infrastructure costs and low cabling weight
  • Performance: the current generation can deliver up to 4K (ultra-high-definition) video, and 8K is already in the roadmap
  • Simplicity: category (LAN) cable and UTP cables are easy to install and to field-terminate.  Cat cables also use standard RJ-45 lockable connectors.
  • Standardization: HDBaseT is an industry standard, facilitating interoperability

HDBaseT already has a range of members and partners adopting the technology, further contributing to making it the industry standard:

  • Samsung
  • LG
  • Sony
  • Crestron
  • Extron
  • Epson
  • Panasonic
  • Kramer
  • NEC

Wexer recommends using the HDBaseT standard in installations and further recommends utilizing displays and projectors with built-in HDBaseT connectivity to:

  • ease cabling
  • reduce the amount of peripheral hardware
  • sending and receiving control commands
  • ensure a high-quality digital image
