From simple point-to-point applications, up to the most cutting-edge home networking solutions, Valens HDBaseT™ provides an unmatched solution and sets the standard for a new generation of digital connectivity.

Examples of Valens HDBaseT applications are provided.

Point-to-Point Application

Forget about cable-clutter in your living room. Valens HDBaseT™ provides the most elegant and esthetic solution for point-to-point connectivity. Just plug any HDBaseT™ enabled source device (e.g. Blu-ray player) to any HDBaseT™ enabled sink device (e.g. flat-screen display) using a single CAT cable – and you are good to go. No need for additional cabling. No need for even a power outlet near your screen. Just plug and play.

Home Theater Application

Valens HDBaseT™ chips perfectly suit the needs of domestic home-theater installations. Typically, a multi-zone HDBaseT™ AV receiver is used to terminate the sources (e.g. Blu-ray player, gaming console) and deliver 5Play™ feature-set to the home projector in a distance of up to 100m/328ft. Valens integrated control channel enables full control of remote devices. This means you can sit back in your living room and use your remote to control all of your multimedia equipment located in the basement. All this is done by relying on existing LAN infrastructure. Moreover, in-room cable clutter is reduced to only one cable, providing the elegance and esthetics you expect in residential installations.

Complete Home Networking Application

Valens HDBaseT™ technology can be used to deploy the most elegant and practical home networking solution. An HDBaseT™ switch is used to terminate the sources (e.g. any type of media player, set-top-box, gaming console, etc.). The switch can be placed at a central equipment cabinet (located in the home's basement, for example) delivering 5Play™ feature-set to various home devices at a distance of up to 100m/328ft. Valens integrated control channel enables full control over the remote devices. This means you can sit back in front of your screen, anywhere in your home and use a remote control, a gaming console controller or even a keyboard and mouse to control your devices. You can also control your HDBaseT™ switch using Valens app for smart-phones and tablets. Plain internet can also be provided for home PCs, over the same cabling without the need for any special configuration. All this can be done by relying on the existing LAN infrastructure. Moreover, in-room cable clutter is reduced to only one cable, providing the elegance and esthetics you expect in residential installations. HDBaseT™ complete home networking is tailored to ensure convergence and interoperability. Due to its flexible architecture, HDBaseT™ accommodates various devices with or without native HDBaseT™ support. This means you can just plug your existing devices to the HDBaseT™ Switch using legacy cabling, such as HDMI. The HDBaseT™ Switch will take care of the rest, ensuring none of your existing devices become obsolete.
