HDBaseT Alliance will be exhibiting HDBaseT Spec 3.0, the latest and most advanced version of the HDBaseT standard. Spec 3.0 builds upon the definitions stipulated in Spec 2.0, with major changes in the physical layer (PHY) and USB outlining. In addition, Spec 3.0 will bring additional improvements to other interfaces.
Backward compatible with previous specifications, Spec 3.0 includes 16Gbps bandwidth over a single category cable, enabling distribution of fully uncompressed 4K@60Hz 4:4:4 for up to 100m; low power mode/standby mode; support for HDMI 1.4, HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.3; and support of 1GbE and enhanced USB 2.0 bandwidth.
Tzahi Madgar, president, HDBaseT Alliance, said: “The HDBaseT Alliance is deeply attuned to the needs of the market, and the need for a 4K uncompressed solution is clear. By defining Spec 3.0, the Alliance continues to provide installers and integrators with the most flexible, interoperable, and advanced solution for the best possible performance.”
Valens, an HDBaseT Alliance founder and the inventor of HDBaseT technology, is showcasing its VS3000 Configurable Transceiver chipset (part of its latest family, Valens Stello), which complies with Spec 3.0.
