Multimedia, AV It's really more than an HDMI competitor, it's a cable specification that "converges full uncompressed HD video, audio, 100BaseT Ethernet, high power over cable and various control signals through a single 100m/328ft CAT5e/6 LAN cable." That's an idea that I can really get behind. No new proprietary connectors, no expensive cables needed, consolidation of all necessary signals into one cable. The founding companies include LG Electronics, Samsung Electronics, and Sony Pictures Entertainment.

A generic cable that does it all....that's already widely used and cheap to manufacture.

Which will ultimately either drive the pre-existing price of Cat6 cable or create a modified version and ultimately you'll be paying 2 or 3 times as much as you already do for just Cat6.

Count on it.
