The HDBaseT Alliance is coming to CES 2011.  In a press release they said they will be demonstrating a whole home networking solution using HDBaseT technology. So those of us going to the show and curious to know more about HDBaseT and would like to see it in action, the demonstation will be in the Hilton Suite No.2450.

This will be the Alliances first CES show since it launched back in December of last year by LG Electronics, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Valens Semiconductor and Samsung Electronics. The Aim of the alliance is to standardise a platform for the use of the common RJ45 Ethernet connector and cable to allow for a whole home distribution of uncompressed high definition (HD) multimedia content.

Although we can achieve the same thing using the standard Ethernet, the HDBaseT standard provides an all-in-one connectivity solution. Using its Trade mark 5Play feature-set, with its converging full HD video, audio, Internet, 100 watts of power and controls through a single 100m/328ft LAN cable. You are able to save money, time and space by using less cable.

About the HDBaseT Demonstration
The Alliance will showcase how an HDBaseT-connected home can send the 5PlayTM feature set – full HD video, audio, Internet, controls and 100 watts of power – via a single, 100m/328ft LAN cable. In the live demonstration, the HDBaseT network will easily push content using a media hub controller, such as a personal smart phone.

The living room, bedroom and home office settings will provide visitors with a handson experience of the HDBaseT-connected home. Using one controller, visitors will push content from a 3D Blu-ray player, game console and personal computer to strategically placed displays.
