Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, now offers an extended 25-year component warranty and a Lifetime Application Assurance Program for HDBaseT cabling solutions when installed by a Belden PartnerAlliance AV Integrator. The PartnerAlliance HDBaseT Warranty – currently available in Canada, the United States and Latin America – is the first-of-its-kind offered in the professional AV industry. It ensures that the installed cabling system will be free of defects for 25 years and includes a Lifetime Application Assurance Program, which covers system performance and labor. Announcements will be coming soon about availability in APAC and EMEA.
This innovative offering helps enterprises futureproof their infrastructure, with complete assurance that a Belden cabling system installed by a PartnerAlliance AV Integrator will support today’s HDBaseT applications and tomorrow’s advancements to 4K – with no upgrades needed.
Through training and education, Belden supports PartnerAlliance AV Integrators in confidently offering this type of warranty. As an HDBaseT Alliance Authorized Trainer, Belden trains integrators on quality HDBaseT system configurations, installation best practices and testing, and how to “speak” the IT language, helping bridge the gap between AV and IT as the two rapidly converge.
“When an HDBaseT system is engineered, installed and tested by trained PartnerAlliance AV Integrators that use highly reliable, quality Belden cabling and connectivity, customers can count on consistent delivery of HDBaseT signal transmission for the best performance possible,” says Elizabeth Stephan, director of sales and channel, broadcast and AV at Belden. “This warranty continues our expanded focus on HDBaseT, ensuring that Belden installations are reliable, safe and high performing.”
