Valens Semiconductor releases new White Paper, 5Play Convergence and the Next HD Digital Connectivity Standard

With the shift towards digital television (DTV) and increasing use of large-scale high definition (HD) displays, the home entertainment market is expanding at an astounding rate. With this growth, the average living room has amassed a huge collection of cables and connectors for multiple devices, such as Blu-ray players, AV receivers, game consoles, set-top-boxes, PCs and many more. Understandably, consumers are looking for a better way to provide point-to-point connectivity and multimedia distribution in the home entertainment environment.

Additionally, the introduction of flat panel displays that can hang on the wall like a picture frame has created a need to reduce the number of cables and connectors to a minimum. Once the TV is on the wall, it is no longer necessary to place the different entertainment devices right next to it. In fact, the majority of consumers, especially women, prefer these devices to be hidden.

So how many cables do you really need today? Read more here.
