The Successor to HDMI:

The Successor to HDMI: All Your Video Through CAT6

It’s all based on a new A/V cable standard dubbed HDBaseT announced yesterday by Samsung and LG.

Not only is it based on standard CAT5e/6 networking cables, which is going to make networking your home theater much cheaper than HDMI, the new standard also supports cable lengths of up to 328 feet. In other words: There’s really no more excuses for not connecting your PC to your TV, even if the two devices are located in different rooms of your house.

The excuse could well be the difficulty of running Cat 6 Ethernet cable throughout the house, so if you’re building new, put it in everywhere!
