Why should you care about 5Play™? These features will merge full uncompressed HD video, audio, 100BaseT Ethernet, power and various control signals through a single inexpensive CAT5e/6 LAN cable.
1) Full, Uncompressed HD Video
HDBaseT supports TV and PC video formats including standard, enhanced, high-definition and 3D video. Uncompressed content supports all video sources, including legacy products, accurately renders gaming graphics and features such as electronic program guides, and does not degrade video quality or add latency.
Audio is a requirement for most consumer electronics devices and is passed through the same media as video. HDBaseT supports all standard formats including 7.1 channel Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.
3) 100BaseT Ethernet
HDBaseT supports 100Mb Ethernet capabilities, enabling televisions, hi-fi equipment, computers and other devices to communicate with each other and access multimedia content, including video, pictures and music stored around the house or on the web.
4) Power Over HDBaseT (100W)
Sending power over the same CAT5e/CAT6 cable gives people the option to forego plugging devices into the wall outlet for power, allowing greater mobility. HDBaseT can power remote TVs and other devices up to 100 watts, even devices not anywhere near a power outlet.
5) Various Control Signals
HDBaseT delivers different types of control signals for different purposes, starting from CEC, to RS232/USB and IR that operate remote equipment even when located in a different room.
