L2Tek deal with Valens brings reduction in HD video transmission costs to the UK market

December 05, 2012 // By Paul Buckley
L2Tek, a manufacturers’ representative and distributor of components and sub-assemblies for professional video and high-speed communications systems, has signed a UK representation and distribution deal with Valens Semiconductor.

Valens is a leading provider of semiconductor products for the distribution of uncompressed HD multimedia content and inventor of HDBaseT technology.

Valens chipsets converge its 5Play feature set - HD video, audio, Internet, power and control signals, to enable HDBaseT transmission over standard, low-cost Cat5e/6 cables with RJ45 connectors. The devices provide transmission at distances up to 100m and enable lower cost, simpler networks to be created with less cable clutter, simplified installation and greater reliability.

Only one cable with a connector at each end is needed for all five circuits. Valens chipsets can be used to create networks based on a star topology or nodes can be daisy-chained for scalability. The devices are equally suited to consumer, commercial and industrial applications.
