HDBaseT™ in Action
5Play™ on a Single Cable
Valens HDBaseT™ technology empowers plug-and-play digital connectivity between ultra-HD video sources and remote displays. Its 5Play feature set enables the convergence of uncompressed ultra-HD video(up to 4K and audio), 100BaseT Ethernet, USB 2.0, up to 100W of power, and various control signals through a single 100m/328ft cable.
The Ultimate Solution for Digital Projection
Valens offers an unmatched solution for digital projection. Whether you're a manufacturer of professional grade projectors or consumer grade projectors - Valens HDBaseT technology is the ultimate solution for you. Why?
Go Long – Projectors are never mounted near the source. In most cases they are mounted on the ceiling, at a considerable distance from your sources (e.g. PC, Blu-ray / DVD player, etc.). This means that cable length will always be a challenge. Up until now. With Valens HDBaseT™ chips, you can go up to 100 meters long, away from your sources – making it the ideal solution for source-to-sink connectivity.
Go Converged – Valens HDBaseT delivers complete 5Play feature-set on a single cable including: video & audio, Ethernet, USB 2.0, control and power. This means you can cut required cables down to only one all-inclusive cable.
Go Elegant – Valens HDBaseT™ is the most elegant and esthetic solution out there. Forget about cable clutter and conduit mess – with Valens HDBaseT™ all you need is one cable to carry all the data your projector needs.
Go Smooth – With Valens HDBaseT™ chips you don't have to compromise on quality. Our chips deliver smooth, crisp uncompressed ultra-high definition video in up to 4K effective resolution and fully support all 3D video standards.
Go Smart – Valens HDBaseT™ technology helps your customers reduce dramatically the installation costs. Our HDBaseT™ chips rely on standard Cat 6 twisted-pair LAN cable with regular RJ-45 connectors. This means your customers can utilize their existing LAN infrastructure. In case that does not exist, customers can deploy affordable Cat5e cabling, which is a lot more affordable compared to other cabling solutions.
Go Standard – Valens HDBaseT™ sets the path for point-to-point digital connectivity standard. HDBaseT™ certification program provides a formal framework for the HDBaseT product ecosystem, ensuring products are compliant and interoperable. This means you can benefit from a common interface between all HDBaseT™ devices and avoid configuration hassles.
Valens HDBaseT™ chips are already integrated in various commercially available projectors manufactured by the top leading companies. These projectors are successfully deployed every day in numerous installations throughout the globe.
Examples of some of Valens HDBaseT applications are provided.
Education Campus Application
Valens HDBaseT™ chips are implemented in numerous projectors installations in education campuses, such as schools and universities. These installations typically include point-to-point or point-to-multi-point connection of ceiling mounted projectors in classrooms and auditoriums. In many cases, an HDBaseT™ switching matrix is used to terminate sources and deliver 5Play™ feature-set to all projectors at a distance of up to 100m/328ft (or up to 800 meters with 8 hops). By relying on Valens integrated control channel, IR extenders can be used to allow remote control over the switching matrix from all rooms. All this can be done by relying on existing LAN infrastructure.
Home Theater Application
Valens HDBaseT™ chips perfectly suit the needs of domestic home-theater installations. Typically, an 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 at a distance of up to 100m/328ft. By relying on Valens integrated control channel, IR extenders can be used to allow remote control over the AV receiver or for using gaming console remotes from a distant room. 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.
