Legrand Debuts HDBaseT Solution At CEDIA 2012

Legrand HDBaseT Transmitters, Receivers Address Challenges With Long-Run HDMI And Much More

MIDDLETOWN, PA, September 4, 2012 – Legrand, the leader in home technologies and solutions, announced today its new HDBaseT transmitter and receiver for extending and enhancing HDMI distribution systems. HDBaseT easily and efficiently extends runs of HDMI to as much as 100 meters over standard Cat 6 cable, while also carrying control IR commands and Ethernet.

“There have been many approaches to addressing the issues associated with long runs of HDMI, but nothing that approaches the unified standard of HDBaseT,” said Fritz Werder, vice president and general manager for Legrand's Home Systems division. “Its superior method of extending HDMI offers our dealers the most reliable and feature-rich solution for high-definition audio, video and Internet connectivity, with more installation flexibility and consistent interoperability with other brands.” 

Legrand’s HDBaseT solution not only features full support for full 1080p 3D video (in addition to 1080i/720p/576p/576i/480p/480i) and all of the lossless multichannel audio formats supported by HDMI with no additional compression, but also offers HDCP1.2-compliant copy protection and 36-bit deep color. In addition, it features a backward IR channel to extend commands from the display back to the source device. Its fast Ethernet capabilities also make Legrand’s HDBaseT solution fully compatible with Internet enabled devices over a single Cat 5e or Cat 6 cable.

Legrand’s HDBaseT transmitter and receiver delivers all of this functionality with a minimal footprint; each measures just 111 x 75 x 23.5 mm (4.37 x 2.95 x 0.93 inches) each, and weighs less than 3kg (6.6 lbs.), making discreet installation a snap.
