Video over USB is a nice idea but I suspect it will be limited to home applications where most connections can be reached within 10ft distance. How ever, this is a serious restriction for commercial / enterprise applications where the reaches need to be much longer. HDMI and Cat6/6A win these markets. The 3.0 standard does not specify a maximum cable reach, only that all cables meet electrical specification. With copper cabling at wire gauge 26 the maximum length is 3m though this can be exceeded with thicker wire gauges. MP Divakar

Will video over USB 3.0 have guaranteed bandwidth? I know one of the drawbacks to 2.0 (versus firewire) is that there was no way to guarantee the bandwidth you would have available. Although with such a huge bandwidth maybe it is not much of a problem.
