C2G Adds HDMI HDBaseT + USB-B to A and RS232 Over Cat Extender
C2G announced its new HDMI HDBaseT + USB-B to A and RS232 Over Cat Extender (18Gbps), model C2G30055. It’s a solution for when USB must also be extended alongside HDMI video and audio to interactive whiteboards and displays, or in any installation that goes far beyond the length limitations of standard HDMI and USB cabling.
The C2G HDMI HDBaseT + USB-B to A and RS-232 Over Cat Extender (18Gbps) allows for the extension of a 4K HDMI source up to 328 feet to a 4K display without signal loss using a single Cat 6a Ethernet cable. This HDMI HDBaseT 3.0 kit supports 5Play features, including the combined delivery of uncompressed, ultra-high-definition digital video and audio; Ethernet; control signals; USB 2.0; and up to 100 watts of power through a single, 100-meter/328-foot Cat6a LAN cable. The uncompressed digital video fully supports 4K 60Hz (4:4:4) HDMI signals and all audio formats in the HDMI 2.0 specification. The Ethernet pass-through transmits 1GB of data. The featured dip switch allows for RS-232 pass-through and the added convenience of field firmware updating. USB 2.0 supports streaming cameras, connected peripherals, and storage devices. With one-way power over HDBaseT (PoH) support, one power adapter connected to the receiver powers both the transmitter and receiver, eliminating the need for an additional power adapter, and allowing for greater flexibility in installations.
