ATEN HDBaseT long distance media distribution

HDBaseT is a global standard technology for multi-signal distribution. HDBaseT-certified products can transmit 5 key signals, named 5Play, up to 150m over a single network cable. The technology is developed by the HDBaseT Alliance, of which ATEN has been a member since 2013. Ever since, ATEN regularly launches new HDBaseT long distance media distribution solutions.

HDBaseT 5Play

The term 5Play groups the 5 key signals HDBaseT-certified products can support: audiovisual, Ethernet, power, USB and control signals (including infrared, serial commands and CEC).

Ultra HD resolutions

Due to a high bandwidth capacity, HDBaseT products can transmit 4K over a single Cat 5e/6A cable up to 100m without signal degradation or distortion.

One cable

Multiple signals can be distributed simultaneously over a single network cable. Cat cables are commonly used in new and existing installations, leaving the installation of HDBaseT products cost-efficient and without much extra effort. ATEN also offers it's own HDBaseT-certified Cat 6 cable 2L-2910.


HDBaseT is a global connectivity standard used in audiovisual, automotive, industrial computing and residential applications. In this wide range of settings, HDBaseT-certified products from multiple manufacturers, supporting one or more of the 5Play elements, can communicate directly with each other.

Long distances

Equipped with the HDBaseT transmitter or receiver chipsets, products can distribute uncompressed FullHD video signals up to 100m over a single cat cable. HDBaseT Lite models cover distances of up to 70m.
