"HD-One LX is a perfect solution for remotely locating an HDMI source, whether in a commercial digital signage installation or residential home theater."
Company officials said HD-One LX, which is now shipping, is fully HDCP-compliant and capable of extending uncompressed 1080p video at 60 Hz, audio, IR and bi-directional RS-232 328 feet, allowing commands and data to flow in both directions. Audio transmission supports Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA.
