CE Giants Back “Super Cable”
A consortium of top CE firms, including Sony, Samsung and LG, have endorsed a new cable standard called HDBaseT, also known as “Super Cable.” According to Forbes, the cable can handle electrical power, along with HDTV, audio and computer data.
The Super Cable is seen as an upgrade over HDMI cables.
The first such cables will be as long as 100 meters and the cable will offer a data throughput of 100 megabits per second.
