Valens Semiconductor’s Stello Chipsets to Power Crestron’s Next-Generation Product Lines

June 9, 2022

HOD HASHARON, Israel, June 9, 2022 – Valens Semiconductor (NYSE: VLN), a premier provider of high-speed connectivity solutions for the audio-video and automotive markets, today announced that a full suite of more than 24 Professional Audio-Video (ProAV) products from Crestron Electronics, the global leader in workplace and smart home technology, are powered by the Valens Stello family. These products support a new era of technological innovation for Audio-Video, bringing to the industry a truly uncompressed 4K60@4:4:4 video distribution solution.

Crestron has already introduced to market multiple Valens Stello-based products, including the popular 4K HD-PS presentation switchers and end points from its DM Lite® product lines, which have been met with strong market demand. Crestron’s products are on display at the company’s booth (#W603) at InfoComm (June 8-10, 2022).

The Crestron products incorporate chipsets from the Valens Stello family, which implements the latest generation of the HDBaseT standard, HDBaseT 3.0. The Valens Stello chipsets offer unparalleled technological capabilities and are the only ones on the market that can converge and extend fully uncompressed HDMI 2.0 4K60@4:4:4 Video, 1Gbps Ethernet, Hi-Speed USB, Controls, and Power, over a single Category cable for distances of up to 100 meters (328ft).

“It is a testament to the confidence we have in our long-lasting relationship with Valens Semiconductor that we chose to base such a robust product line on their technology,” said Dan Brady, Chief Operating Officer at Crestron Electronics. “The Valens Stello chipsets allow us to bring the long-distance distribution of truly uncompressed HDMI 2.0 to the market. We are confident that our Valens Stello-based DM Lite products answer a clear market need, from enterprise to education and beyond.”

“Crestron sets the tone when it comes to innovation in the ProAV world,” said Gabi Shriki, SVP and Head of Audio-Video at Valens Semiconductor. “There has already been strong adoption of the Valens Stello, our latest and most feature-rich Audio-Video chipset, but Crestron’s products will certainly open the floodgates for greater market adoption of our state-of-the-art chipsets.”
