HDBaseT - Converging HD Content Distribution
Here at Kordz we’ve traditionally focused on high quality HDMI solutions and it has come as no surprise to us that converged distribution of HD media is becoming increasingly important for domestic and commercial installs.
The HDBaseT Alliance was formed in mid 2010 by LG Electronics, Samsung Electronics, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Valens Semiconductor. Kordz joined the alliance in late 2010 and brought our first HDBaseT extender to market in 2011.
The compelling features of HDBaseT technology include:
- Uncompressed video/audio up to 10.2 Gbps.
