The EXT-HDMI1.3-CAT5-ELR from Gefen extends HDMI 1.3 with Ethernet and IR over Cat-5 for up to 330ft. with support for Deep Color and LPCM 7.1 Audio, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS Master Audio. The sender and receiver units have locking 5VDC power supply connections and DIP switches for EDID management along with a plate for wall mounting. The pair supports resolutions up to Ultra HD 4Kx2K and 1080P. Optional accessories include a dual IR emitter and a 6ft. IR extender cable with a rubber mat under the extender head.
Hall Research has an HDMI 1.4 compliant splitter with one local HDMI output and three HDBaseT outputs for transmission to a compatible receiver up to 500ft. away. Compatible receivers for the UHBX-3S include the UH1BT-R for HDMI only, or UHBX-R that supports RS-232, PoH, and Long Reach modes. These can be powered from the UHBX-3S over the twisted-pair connection. The transmitter supports HDCP, 3D, Deep Color, and 4Kx2K resolution and it has a USB port for EDID management. There is also an HDMI output on the transmitter to serve a local display.
For 1080p, 4Kx2K and 3D compatible HDMI transmission up to 195ft. in digital signage, home theater, and commercial video systems, Intelix offers the DIGI-HD60C-S with CEC-supported control signal capability, bidirectional wideband IR, and RS-232 passthrough along with built-in surge protection. When used with the DIGI-HD60C-R, the transmitter unit can be powered over the twisted-pair line from the receiver. Otherwise, it has its own locking 24VDC power connector. The RS-232 connection is on captive screw terminals and the IR in and out are 3.5mm mini. There are also power and link LED indicators.
The KanexPro HDBaseT Long-Runner 100M can send full 3D with resolutions up to 4Kx2K at data rates up to 10.2Gbps, multichannel audio and IR over Cat-5e/6 for up to 330ft. The conveyance is fully compliant with HDCP, EDID, and CEC control. External 5VDC 2A power supplies for transmitter and receiver units are included and there are front panel LED indicators for link activity and HDCP authentication. The HDBASE70M is the HDBaseT Class B version extending HDMI/DVI along with bidirectional RS-232 and IR up to 230ft. The tiny units consume only 5W power maximum.
For extension of HDMI with Deep Color and 3D passthrough, Dolby TrueHD, DTS−HD audio, CEC control signals and bidirectional RS-232/IR Kramer Electronics designed the TP-580TXR twisted-pair transmitter. Using shielded twisted-pair cable such as Kramer’s BC−DGKat524, BC−DGKat623, and BC−DGKat7a23 cables, the transmission range is up to 430ft. in normal mode and 590ft. in ultra mode. The front panel has LED indicators for input, output, link, and power. Using the optional RK-3T universal rack adapter, up to three units can be mounted in a single rack space. Specs are based on the use of a Kramer TP−580RXR receiver.
For extension of HDMI supporting 3D and 4K up to 590ft., Lightware USA has the HDMI-TPS-TX90 and HDMI-TPS-RX90 twisted-pair transmitter and receiver pair, which also carries bidirectional RS-232 on a 9-pin D-Sub, IR on 3.5mm TRS jack and 10/100 Ethernet. Uncompressed video has full EDID and HDCP compliance and either unit can power the other over the twisted-pair cable or it can use its own local power supply with a locking DC connector. Each unit has live, link, HDCP, and video LED indicators. The control transmission capability is also CEC transparent.
The Optiva OTC-1DVI2AUSB from Opticomm provides DVI, stereo analog audio, USB KVM extension and it does conversion in conjunction with the OTC-1HDMI and OTC-1HDP. The Optiva OTC-1HDMI extends HDMI and the Optiva OTC-1HDP extends 3G HD-SDI, each with embedded audio. Working together, the three cards can convert signals over Cat-X such as DVI to HDMI, or DVI to 3G HD-SDI/HD-SDI/SDI, or any other combination. There is full duplex EDID handshaking built into the HDBaseT technology. Additionally, the Optiva OTC Series incorporates active (re-clocking) daisy-chain technology with their HDBaseT products.
