Crestron will debut at CEDIA Expo a new family of HDMI over HDBaseT extenders, which transmit and receive 4K content using standard CAT5e/UTP cables. Crestron says it’s upgraded its DigitalMedia matrix switchers to handle 4K resolutions (4096×2160).
The HD-EXT3-C and HD-EXT4-C are specified to support 4K content and can transmit HDMI long distances (up to 330 feet, or 100 meters) via HDBaseT using standard CAT5e/UTP cable. Transmitters may be mounted in a single gang wall box and are available with black or white faceplates. They can also be rack mounted.
