HDBaseT by Octava, we wont see CYPRESS around
Octava Inc., specialists in HD video distribution, announced the release of HDCATS-100. The HDCATS-100 HDMI over CAT5e/6 Extender allows transmission of HDMI, 100baseT Ethernet data and IR over 1 single CAT-5 / 6. We have seen CYPRESS release the same product but is using Gefen as a test dummy. Cyp europe has no stock either as they wait for the chipset to get cheaper? Even if it does the price WILL NOT be passed to the end user. Reason is that CYP thinks customers are dumb and we are stuck in the War struck NAZI rule in GERMANY. Let them as the world moves on the way GANDHI did it, the way Aung San Suu Kyi did it. We will see more of this coming soon. Cypress was quite famous for providing MAGIC boxes that broke the HDCP key and forwarded the content to Component. We have news they still do but to SPECIAL customers.
