Belden’s Innovative HDBaseT Warranty Receives Commercial Integrator’s BEST Award


Recognized as a first-of-its-kind warranty, this offering helps bridge the gap between AV and IT


ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, is excited to announce that its PartnerAlliance HDBaseT Warranty has received a 2018 BEST Award from Commercial Integrator.


The winners were chosen by a panel of industry experts, integrators and editors of Commercial Integrator for their ability to positively impact commercial integrators’ businesses in 2018. Winners were announced at InfoComm 2018 in Las Vegas.


Belden created the PartnerAlliance HDBaseT Warranty – a first-of-its-kind warranty for the professional AV industry – to help bridge the gap between AV and IT. As technology is becoming more connected, these two industries are converging. Delivery methods for AV content have evolved from standalone cables and connectivity to IP networking. IT and AV professionals are having to work more closely together, often sharing one common infrastructure to achieve today’s business goals. As a result, AV decisions are more often being made by IT managers.


A warranty of this caliber is expected in the IT space, but is a brand new concept in the AV world. Designed to help integrators establish a higher level of credibility as they work with IT professionals, the PartnerAlliance HDBaseT Warranty allows qualified Belden PartnerAlliance AV Integrators to provide their own clients with assurance that their installed cabling systems will be free of defects for 25 years. It also includes a Lifetime Application Assurance Program, which covers system performance and labor.


“This warranty offers assurance that HDBaseT systems are engineered, designed, installed and tested by trained AV integrators that use highly reliable, high-quality Belden cabling and connectivity to ensure the consistent delivery of impeccable HDBaseT signal transmission,” says Belden Broadcast and AV Product Manager Linda White. “A Belden cabling system installed by a PartnerAlliance AV Integrator will support today’s HDBaseT applications and tomorrow’s advancements to 4K.”


In the AV industry, the demand for higher performance communications has become more prevalent than ever before. As a result, the need has increased for professional quality cabling systems and components that can span a vast spectrum of applications. Belden’s cabling and connectivity expertise and performance in the broadcast industry has positioned it as the brand that customers and consultants have come to trust. As the industry adjusts to IP convergence throughout the broadcast and professional AV markets, Belden is well positioned with a broad product portfolio of audio, video, and communication solutions utilizing coax, fiber, hybrid fiber, multi-conductor and category cable and connectivity products including connectors, assemblies, panels and racks.
