HOD-HASHARON, Israel -- January 28, 2013

Valens has developed a new reference design solution for transmitting Display
Port audio and video over HDBaseT together with ST Microelectronics. The
solution will be demonstrated this week at the HDBaseT Alliance's booth at the
Integrated Systems Europe 2013 conference (Hall 7, Booth #7C171).

The HDBaseT technology features the unique 5Play™ feature set that enables the
delivery of uncompressed high definition video, audio, Internet, controls and
power over a single cat5e/6 cable up to 100 meters, eliminating the common
issues professional installers face concerning cable distance and location of
available power outlets.

Until now, HDBaseT products were mainly transmitting HDMI and/or DVI. The new
ST-Valens solution provides professional installers and systems integrators
with the flexibility of being able to use the commonly-used Display Port

Valens developed this solution in response to the growing demand for display
port solutions, enabling customers to benefit HDBaseT’s convergence and long
distance capabilities with Display Port.

The new Display Port over HDBaseT reference design solution uses ST DP2650 and
STDP2600 chipset and Valens’ VS100 chipset to transmit uncompressed video and
audio over a single CAT5e/6 cable. It facilitates the transmission of Display
port over long distances, in a simple, plug-and-play manner.
