Valens is a fabless semiconductor company enabling simplified long-reach wired connectivity of uncompressed high-definition (HD) multimedia content. Leveraging breakthrough technology, Valens aims to set the standard in converged delivery of uncompressed all-digital audio/video over long distances for the home entertainment market. Valens empowers consumer electronics (CE) and PC equipment manufacturers to support high-performance HD while reaping the benefits of easier integration, lower costs and longer reach.
Valens’ next-generation connectivity technology – HDBaseTTM – is the first to enable long-reach wired connectivity of uncompressed HD multimedia content over a single standard Cat-5e/6 cable. As a result, HDBaseT is positioned to become the leading physical layer technology for last-leg wired connectivity between HD multimedia stream sources, such as set-top boxes (STBs), DVDs and PCs, and HD display monitors, such as flat-panel LCD/plasma HDTVs.
