Experience HDBaseT™ with Valens Evaluation Kit

Valens offers a variety of Evaluation Kits (EVK) that demonstrate HDBaseT capabilities.

an EVK is comprised of a Sink board and a Source board, forming an HDBaseT link, designed to enable simplified, long-reach wired connectivity of uncompressed HD multimedia content, Ethernet, Controls and Power over a single standard 100m/328ft CAT5e (or superior) cable.

Valens Evaluation Kit supports the following features:

  • High Definition Video and Audio
  • Programmable Data bus Interface (PDIF) for serial bi-directional communications, such as RS232, RS422 and IR
  • Power over Ethernet (PoE)
  • HDMI bypass
  • 100BaseT Ethernet including fallback to regular Ethernet mode.

HDBaseT™ with the Power of PoH

Silvertel

Silvertel has designed and developed several Power over Ethernet (PoE) module ranges to suit different applications. Their PoE modules require minimal external components and all have built-in signature recognition and class programming which compiles to the IEEE802.3af standard.

 

Symmetry Eastern Region Director of Sales, Chris Binnie's HDBaseT/PoE comment from Forbes.com:

So there are 2 basic technologies behind HDBaseT. First of all there is the silicon that transmits and receives the data. This is available for Valens, and then there is the Power side, which is derived from Power over Ethernet (PoE). The PoE spec - IEEE802.3at - only gets you around 25W. The Power over HDBaseT (PoH) will get you close to 100W. PoH is available from Silvertel
