HDBaseT has the potential to supply Video, Audio, Ethernet, Control and Power over a single CAT5, 6 or 7 cable – note potential.
The ability to deliver power is only starting to appear and whilst the theory goes you will eventually be able to power a TV there are lots of technicalities to work around before you see that as the norm.
Even with the complications ironed out there will be a limit to how much power you can deliver down the wire so don’t expect to see 42” and above TV’s appearing any day soon with Power over HDBaseT embedded in them.
For Now HDBaseT is primarily a way to carry HDMI, Ethernet and Control over a single CAT cable and where PoH (Power over HDBaseT) is mentioned it’s going to be limited to powering the HDBaseT Receiver device not the connected Display.
