HDBaseT will allow daisy-chaining and the use of existing network cable infrastructure, this will be especially appealing to commercial and industrial installations as running and terminating HDMI cables in the field is time consuming and expensive, especially over distance whereas a Cat5/6 cable is light weight, easy to run over long distances and extremely easy to terminate.

HDBaseT supported products are expected to start hitting the market by the end of 2010 and early 2011.

There are rumours that the second specification for HDBaseT is in the works and is expected to push the video bandwidth beyond the 10.2Gbps limit that is in the first specification.

There is a cool comparison chart that includes HDMI, DiiVA, DisplayPort 1.2 and HDBaseT features. You can view the chart here.
