DVIGear has introduced the DVI-7570 Wildcat, the first in a new family of value-priced HDMI extenders. DVIGear Wildcat Extenders utilize a new technology that enables them to extend HDMI signals for a fraction of the cost of other twisted-pair extenders. This is achieved using visually lossless compression that allows resolutions of 3840 x 2160 /60p (4:4:4) to be extended as far as 30 meters (98 feet) over a single CAT6A cable. Resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 /30p (4:4:4) can be extended to 70 meters (230 feet).
The DVI-7570 supports HDMI 2.0, is HDCP 2.2 compliant and supports bidirectional Power-over-Cable (POC), giving integrators and system designers the flexibility to power the extender set at either end of the signal chain. The extenders occupy a minimal amount of space and can easily be concealed thanks to an ultra-compact metal case, which includes all required mounting hardware for a seamless, low-profile installation.
The Wildcat Extender includes a buffered HDMI Loop Output for a local HDMI display on the transmitter unit. The receiver unit includes de-embedded Analog and Digital (TOSLINK) audio outputs to facilitate connections to an external audio system.
System designers working with academic spaces, houses of worship and small-to-mid-size presentation venues will find value in this product. The DVI-7570 Wildcat Extender is available for immediate delivery and has a suggested retail price of only $160.00 per set.
