Just in case you haven’t heard all the hype about HDBaseT, this relatively new standard includes a feature set that converges uncompressed full HD digital video, audio, 100BaseT Ethernet, power over cable and various control signals through a single LAN cable. Keep in mind this is not the first time that digital video, audio, and control have been able to be extended over long distances using category cable, however this is the first time that there has been a standard for doing so across different manufacturers.
In keeping with their reputation of providing industry leading products Epson has recently refreshed their entire line of Pro G installation projectors which now all include an HDBaseT input removing the need to have an HDBaseT receiver near the projector.
Why does this matter? First off, there is a cost savings of up to a few hundred dollars from not having to purchase a receiver unit. Second, these projectors can now receive digital video, audio, & control over a single cable from source equipment that is in excess of 300 feet away. Additionally, since HDBaseT is a standard, you can use transmitters from whoever your preferred manufacturer is.
This latest refresh of the Epson Pro G series installation projectors also includes a settings cloning feature to speed up and simplify multiple projector installations as well as support for a wider range of control system protocols.
