Atlona is shipping its AT-HDR-EX-70-2PS transmitter/receiver kit. Designed for both residential and commercial applications, it’s designed to extend 4K/UHD HDMI signals over HDBaseT with support for High Dynamic Range (HDR) formats.
The HDR-EX-70-2PS extends 4K HDR by combining latency-free, visually lossless (meaning it’s compressed but they say you can’t tell) compression with HDBaseT. Transporting signals up to 4K/UHD at 60 Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling (8-bit color) over Cat6a or Cat7 cable, the kit can extend 1080p video up to 230 feet (70 meters), while HDR-enhanced 4K content can be carried up to 130 feet (40 meters).
The new extender supports all video resolutions, audio formats – including PCM plus Dolby and DTS formats – and color spaces encompassed in the HDMI 2.0a specifications. Able to pass metadata for HDR content, the solution supports the 4K HDR10 standard at 60 Hz (4:2:0 chroma subsampling, 10-bit color) plus additional HDR variants. Additional key features include support for HDMI data rates up to 18 Gbps and HDCP 2.2 compliance for the transport of protected content.
