We're big fans of HDBaseT, having covered the technology in depth since its debut and cheering it on to take on a greater role in finally "networking" home theater components. Now, Accell has shown off a new and innovative Cat6e/6-based "UltraCat HD Extender" based on the HDBaseT standard. It provides HDMI over a single Cat5e/6 cable and does it for long runs of up to 328 feet (100 meters). In fact, it does more than just HDMI. The system transmits and receives uncompressed full HD digital video, uncompressed 7.1 audio, 100BaseT Ethernet, RS232C control signal and even infrared control signals over a single Cat5e/6 cable! That is nothing short of amazing. And it's not a minimum supporter of HD either, it can send and receive full 1080p, 4K and even 3D signals.
