BEAVERTON, Ore. -- February 12, 2013

The HDBaseT Alliance today announced that Belkin has joined the Alliance,
enabling Belkin to integrate HDBaseT technology into its lines of audio/video
products for commercial and consumer applications. Belkin has also announced
its new HDBaseT HDMI audio/video extender solution for high performance AV
connectivity over Cat5e long distance applications.

The HDBaseT technology 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.

“Joining the HDBaseT Alliance presents us with an exciting opportunity to add
our solutions to the expanding HDBaseT product ecosystem, and play a role in
helping the technology itself evolve to meet the demands of our customers,”
said Sydney Wen, product development manager, Belkin. “Our new HDBaseT
products provide unique benefits for AV installers by providing a
long-distance solution that significantly reduces the time and labor costs
associated with installation and management.”

“Belkin has established itself as a trusted developer for audio/visual
products for businesses and consumers worldwide,” said Micha Risling,
marketing chair for the HDBaseT Alliance. “Adding Belkin to the HDBaseT
Alliance confirms that the demand for HDBaseT technology continues to grow,
and Belkin will help meet that demand as it continues to integrate the
technology into its products.”

The Belkin HDBaseT provides installers with a point-to-point solution that
ensures interoperability when working with components from multiple AV brands.
It eliminates the requirement for setting up a complex network of runner
cables, pigtails, breakouts or color-coded wall plates by deploying a
universal protocol for heterogeneous AV environments. It also supports custom
long-run capability with PVC, Plenum and Riser.

The new Belkin HDBaseT is available now through Belkin’s worldwide network of
distributors and value added resellers.
