High-Quality Multimedia Distribution in Commercial Buildings


This CABA White Paper examines the increasing need for high-quality multimedia in commercial buildings and the options for a distribution infrastructure. The paper notes that building industry has adopted standards for a building data infrastructure that can be extended to multimedia. The paper demonstrates that there is a solution using HDBaseT technology that overcomes the limitations of HDMI, while carrying HDMI signals. The solution is cost-effective and suitable for content-protected audio and video, and can be integrated with a building data network using established installation skills and tools.
