In this webinar:

The higher the cable category, the better the signal management – right? That may be what the standards say, but the HDBaseT signal has unique characteristics that amplify with the increased bandwidth demands of 4K video. And sending power through the cable via Power over HDBaseT (POH) increases the cable’s internal temperature. Couple this heat increase with cable bundling, and cable performance can degrade considerably.

If standards are the foundation for how you choose cable infrastructure, what safeguards are in place for signal management to support in 4KHDBaseT cabling?

In this webinar, Belden provides clear direction on choosing the right cabling for HDBaseT applications, and explains the test results that back its advice. The UL/HDBaseT Alliance joint rating and POH will also be explained in greater detail.
