The Stello VS3000 portfolio includes highly integrated ICs for the convergence and extension of AV signals over a single standard Cat cable. The chipsets enable the extension of uncompressed HDMI 2.0 (18Gbps – 4K@60 4:4:4), high fidelity audio, 1Gbps Ethernet, USB2.0, controls and power over a Cat cable for up to 100m (328ft) with zero latency. The family implements HDBaseT 3.0 and is backwards compatible with HDBaseT spec 2.0 and spec 1.0 products, providing interoperability with existing installations.
Pro-AV manufacturers are already integrating the Stello VS3000 chipset family in over 100 products, including projectors, extenders, KVM switches, matrixes, PTZ cameras, conferencing systems, wall plates and more. The chipsets are also being used in other verticals, including industrial, medical and transportation.
“This launch reinforces HDBaseT’s position as the leading technology in the pro-AV market,” said Gideon Ben-Zvi, CEO of Valens. “Valens has long been a dominant player in long-reach, uncompressed, ultra-high-definition multimedia connectivity, and it is once again spearheading the technological market leadership with the VS3000 products. We’re ramping up production of our fully featured VS3000 chipsets and expanding our customer base as they look to integrate the most cutting-edge technology and future-proof their products.”
Gabi Shriki, SVP and head of audio-video at Valens, said: “Whether they be used for video conferencing, digital signage, education, or medical imaging equipment, these chipsets will enable our customers to develop the next generation of applications across industries.”
