Valens HDBaseT Receives Encryption Nod From Intel

Valens Semiconductor, a fabless semiconductor firm that enables distribution of multimedia HD content via its proprietary technology (HDBaseT) said it has now been sanctioned by Intel’s content security protection arm, Digital Content Protection LLC.

DCP’s permission, in effect, pertains to the transmission of HD digital content-protected (HDCP) video signals over HDBaseT. Valens, based in Hod Hasharon, Israel, said DCP informed the company that HDBaseT has become the latest approved interface for encrypted HD video transmissions.

HDBaseT operates by connecting most wired and wireless entertainment devices in the home with a “5Play” convergence of uncompressed full HD video, audio, 100BaseT Ethernet, power-over-cable and other signals. According to Valens, end-users will be able to send and receive uncompressed HD video, audio and Internet broadband simultaneously via a single LAN cable.
