HDBaseT Alliance to bring uncompressed HD over Ethernet

updated 05:20 pm EST, Tue December 15, 2009

LG, Samsung, Sony and Valens found HDBaseT

LG, Samsung, Sony Pictures and Valens Semiconductor have partnered to launch the HDBaseT Alliance in order to create a new standard that would allow users to send uncompressed HD videos throughout their homes using their Ethernet cables. The alliance hopes to create a worldwide standard that will eventually be used in TVs, projectors, AV and home theater equipment, as well as content providers and IT companies, among others. The companies feel this is necessary as current technologies are limited in bandwidth and don't support uncompressed video.

The four founding companies will attempt to bring other industry players into the HDBaseT Alliance in order to finalize the standard. More information on other companies joining the Alliance is expected to come in the coming weeks, and most likely at CES at the start of January.
