HDMI is Dead. Introducing HDBaseT Networking

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 3 years ago

An anonymous reader writes "HDMI is dead according to Audioholics.com A new standard is set to replace HDMI sources say. HDBaseT technology runs over STANDARD Cat5e/6 cable and implements something it calls 5Play, an unrivaled feature-set that converges full uncompressed HD video, audio, 100BaseT Ethernet, and various control signals. Oh, it also transmits up to 100W of power — that's enough to drive a 37-inch TV. And it can extend up to 100 meters passively. HDBaseT has the bandwidth to support the highest video resolutions such as full HD 1080p as well as 3D and 2Kx4K formats. HDBaseT is the first to provide all-in-one connectivity, making it possible for a single-connector TV to receive power, video/audio, Internet and control signals from the same cable. Think HDMI has a chance? Think again."

Finally, HDMI can die the death it deserves... Normally, I'd wish for a slow death, but I'm rooting for quick here. Bulky, can't terminate it in the field, only good for short distances before you have to power it, no networking... what more is there to say?
