Many of us who grew up watching cartoons such as the Jetsons or science fictions movies like Star Trek, would at some time or the other ask ourselves; what if all the appliances in our home could talk to each other? Some of us have investigated the idea but was deter by its complexity and some have achieved some success. What we were asking is; can we automate our home? And, the answer to this is yes, if you can afford it. As things are today we have moved on from asking about home automation to asking: How can I get my home connected?
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.
The HDBaseT Alliance has formally announced its incorporation and has released the HDBaseT 1.0 specification six months after annoucing the formation of the HDBaseT Alliance. The technology is set to revolutionise the transmission of HD video throughout the home and within the digital media ecosystem. According to the Alliance products with embedded HDBaseT technology should be available for us to buy this year.
Some of the consumer electronics industry’s big players (Sony Pictures Entertainment, Samsung Electronics, Valens Semiconductor and LG Electronics) have come together to form an alliance around HDBaseT technology.
