The Worldwide One-Cable Standard.

With cable certification, you can sleep well knowing your installation is ensured to have full product interoperability and compliance. Transmit 100m with a single hop and up to 800m with 8 hops. Featuring HDBaseT certification, REELEX II technology, UL Listing and ETL performance verification. This is as good as it gets.

What is HDBaseT?

Cables and HDBaseT. Here’s the Deal.

HDBaseT is the global standard for the transmission of ultra-high-definition video & audio, Ethernet, controls, USB and up to 100W of power over a single, long-distance, cable. For audiovisual, consumer electronics, and even industrial PCs, this can be a simple category cable (Cat6 or above), for up to 100m/328ft. For medical and government applications, optical fiber is usually preferred, spanning several kilometers. For automotive, the choice is 100BASE-T1-comparable cable, a single unshielded twisted pair (UTP), for up to 15m/50ft.

Icon certification

Certification. Done Right.

HDBaseT has a rigorous cable certification process in place to ensure you are getting the most out of your equipment. Manufacturers like ICE must submit 100 meter samples of each type of category cable for independent testing by Valens Semiconductors in Israel. Each cable is precisely terminated and then tested on their official “gold certified” equipment. If the cable is good enough, it gets listed on the official HDBaseT recommended cables list.

ICE has an entire line of certified cables that have passed this rigorous process.
