LAS VEGAS – 2014 International CES – January 7, 2014 – Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., together with the HDBaseT Alliance today announced the addition of HDBaseT to select models of Samsung’s large format display product (LFD) line. With the introduction of the new HDBaseT plug-in module, LFD installations become significantly simpler and less costly.
HDBaseT technology, powered by the Valens chipset, enables all-in-one connectivity between HD video sources and remote displays through a single 100m/328ft CAT5e/6 cable, delivering uncompressed high definition video, audio, Ethernet, control signals and up to 100 watts of power. The HDBaseT Alliance will showcase the HDBaseT Receiver on Samsung’s new ME75C full HD display at its booth, LVCC South Hall 1 #20215.
“HDBaseT provides our customers with a connectivity solution that significantly reduces the time and money required to complete the job when compared to other typical cabling options,” said Thomas Evans, Director of Marketing – Professional Display at Samsung’s Enterprise Business Division. “Using HDBaseT for digital signage is an industry game changer that enables professional installers to complete their projects on-time and on-budget.”
HDBaseT has become a global standard for installing digital displays in conference rooms and board rooms. HDBaseT eliminates cabling distance limitations by delivering uncompressed video, audio, control and Ethernet up to 100 meters. Avoiding video compression ensures installers do not have to sacrifice high image quality and delivery speed, and using a standard CAT5e/6 twisted-pair LAN cable with regular RJ-45 connectors makes in-field termination simple and fast.
“The commitment Samsung has shown to advancing the development and deployment of HDBaseT has been strong since Day 1, and today that commitment is stronger than ever,” said Micha Risling, marketing chair of the HDBaseT Alliance. “Since co-founding the HDBaseT Alliance in 2007, Samsung has both helped grow the Alliance to nearly 80 members made up of the world’s leading A/V manufacturers and led the development of HDBaseT-enabled components for professionals and consumers.”
The ME75C is part of the ME – C Series and is a slim, lightweight 75 inch display that supports the new HDBaseT plug-in module. It is also a reliable and cost-effective way to convey a more impactful message in retail environments, conference rooms, public spaces and educational venues. The ME75C provides increased energy savings over CCFL backlit displays with a thin chassis and narrow bezel to help simplify installation and provide an impactful message.
The new HDBaseT plug-in module, PIM-HDBT, will be available with compatible Samsung LFDs at the end of February 2014. For more information, please visit the product page Samsung PIM-HDBT.
