Valens Semiconductor has released the HDBaseT-compliant VS100 chipset and development kits that enable the convergence of uncompressed full HD digital video, audio, 100BaseT Ethernet, power and control through a single, standard 100m LAN cable.

The Valens VS100 family consists of two chips: the VS100TX transmitter for DVDs, STBs and other HD source equipment; and the VS100RX receiver targeting HDTVs, projectors and other display equipment.

"The multimedia distribution market is one of the fastest growing markets today. However, despite the enormous demand for converged distribution of multimedia content from multiple sources to multiple receivers over longer distances, no simple solution has been available," said Dror Jerushalmi, CEO of Valens. "Now, with our Valens VS100 semiconductor product family, users can have a simple, low-cost solution that increases the distance of uncompressed HD multimedia content transfer, expands distribution, simplifies installations and lowers overall system cost, all using a single 100m standard LAN cable. Now that the HDBaseT alliance has been announced, and with the support of companies like LG, Samsung and Sony Pictures, we are sure that the Valens VS 100 product family will play a major role in driving this market."
