Unraveling HDBaseT signaling over bundled cables

There are cases where multiple HDBaseT signals in separate cables that share the same pathway can interfere with one another, causing a loss of signal, says a Belden technical paper authored by Paul Kish.

A white paper from Belden authored by Paul Kish, the company's director of systems and standards, takes as its premise that "it has been reported in the field that there are cases where multiple HDBaseT signals in separate cables that share the same pathway can interfere with one another causing a loss of signal (a dropped link) or a degraded picture."

Intended as a summary report, the purpose of the white paper is "to present the results of a controlled set of tests that were performed at Belden’s System laboratory, in order to to determine under what conditions a link failure can occur," writes Kish. The tests reported on were performed using commercially available audio/visual equipment from multiple manufacturers of equipment using HDBase T signal transmission.
