Aurora Multimedia did something creative with HDBaseT at InfoComm with the ability to work at 4K60 4:4:4 with a single unshielded CAT 5e or better cable and an option for two- or eight-channel Dante. Three new HDBaseT 2.0 products were shown at InfoComm including the HTW-2 two gang transmitter Decora wall plate, HTE-TX2 transmitter box unit and the HTE-RX2 receiver box.
All products are capable of transmitting 4K60 4:4:4 18Gbps HDMI 2.0/HDCP2.2 100m (330ft) over a single unshielded CAT cable with no quality compromise and with what Aurora claims is zero frame latency. In addition, all products have an integrated web server for remote IP control, USB 2.0 with directional control, and the world’s first Dante option for 2 or 8 channel Dante. For enhanced audio, the HT Series supports ARC (Audio Return Channel). To simplify the installation, the HT Series can power both TX and RX from a single port of a PoE Switch eliminating external power supplies.
