HDBaseT

HDBaseT

HDBaseT was developed from a need to overcome the distance limitations imposed by standard HDMI cabling. By converting an HDMI signal to HDBaseT the signal is able to be extended over category cabling at distances up to 100 meters. To carry the HDBaseT logo a product must undergo a stringent certification process, ensuring reliability standards are upheld.

HDBaseT systems consist of a transmitter and a receiver. They can be sold as a simple extender kit, and can also be integrated with HDMI matrix switchers and HDMI splitters. Along with the audio and video, these extenders can also carry IR and RS-232 control signals as well as 100M Fast Ethernet. Due to its reliability and flexibility, HDBaseT is one of the most popular video distribution solutions on the market.

Application 1
Sports Bar Video Entertainment
THE SCENARIO

A sports bar wants to distribute eight video sources to eight displays located throughout the bar. The furthest display will be located approximately 290 ft from the equipment location in a closet behind the manager’s office. They have an existing audio system they’d like to continue using that needs to be able to play the audio from whatever is displayed on the main TV above the bar. The manager has requested the ability to project his PC to the displays for presentations and employee meetings.

 

THE SOLUTION

The BG-UM88-100M-KIT is a 4K 8x8 HDMI matrix switch with HDBaseT outputs. It comes with 8 HDBaseT receivers with a range of 100 meters (328 ft). This will allow the bar to utilize inexpensive Cat6 cabling in place of HDMI cables while satisfying the distance requirements for the TVs. The matrix will be in the AV closet along with the cable boxes, Blu-Ray player, and an HDMI connection for a computer in the manager’s office.

The HDBaseT receivers will be located behind their respective displays and will receive power and video via the Cat6 cable that connects to the HDBaseT outputs on the matrix. Output 1 will be used to feed the main TV above the bar. By utilizing the audio extraction feature from Output 1, a digital coax cable can be connected to the audio system.

Application 2
Corporate Presentation
THE SCENARIO

An office building has a presentation room on the first floor that is used for employee meetings. The room has a maximum occupancy of 15 people, yet the company has 50. There are four additional meeting rooms on the second floor that each have a TV mounted to the wall. The company needs to find a way to distribute video of each presentation throughout the building so that everyone may attend.

 

THE SOLUTION

The BG-UDA-E14 HDBaseT splitter can take a single HDMI source and share it with four remote displays. It also features a local output for a total of 5 potential display connections. By installing a BG-VPTZ-10HSU3 PTZ camera they’ll be able to record the meeting and broadcast it to the other rooms in the building, ensuring all employees have a seat for the presentations.

Running budget friendly Cat6 lines from the base unit to each display will allow the HDBaseT extenders to distribute video throughout the building. Once the displays are connected to the HDBaseT receivers the PTZ camera can easily be connected to the base unit with an HDMI cable, creating a reliable broadcast system that will work for years to come.

Application 3
Residential
THE SCENARIO

A Homeowner wants to connect his new pool house to the AV system from his main house. The pool house has Cat6 wired directly to the main house basement where his AV rack is installed. The cable length is 310 ft. He would like to add the pool house TV to his existing HDMI matrix switch. He has tried several 4K HDMI extenders that were purchased online and none of them worked.

 

THE SOLUTION

The BG-EXH-150C HDBaseT extender has a maximum transmission distance of 120 meters (394 ft) at 4K and 150 meters (492 ft) at 1080p. This unit massively outperforms the non-HDBaseT extenders that are sold on most e-commerce sites. The upgrade to an HDBaseT unit also allows the transmission of IR signals which allows the cable boxes to be controlled from the pool house.

The HDBaseT receiver can be located behind the pool house display. The power over cable feature allows the receiver to be installed without a power supply, making a clean and uncluttered installation with the display. The transmitter will be connected to the AV system in the basement. No configuration is needed, once the system is powered up the homeowner can begin enjoying 4K content from poolside.
