Gefen Introduces Two New 4K Ultra HD Extenders

Gefen from Core Brands today announced the introduction of two new 4K Ultra HD Extenders, the GTB-UHD600-HBT and GTB-UHD600-HBTL, which extend the full bandwidth of HDMI 2.0 over UTP/STP cabling.

Combined with HDBaseT technology, Gefen says both the GTB-UHD600-HBT and GTB-UHD600-HBTL have compression technology to extend an HDMI 2.0 signal in resolutions up to 4096×2160 at 60Hz and 4:4:4 chroma subsampling.

Features of HDMI 2.0, such as HDR, are also carried along the single Cat5 or Cat6 cable that links the sender and receiver units. The GTB-UHD600-HBT and GTB-UHD600-HBTL are capable of two-way IR (both models) and RS232 (GTB-UHD600-HBT only), as well as bi-directional POL (Power over Link), to allow integration of control signals. Integration with Gefen’s Syner-G software allows for management of both products.

The GTB-UHD600-HBT is capable of 4K Ultra HD extension up to 80 meters (100 meters at 1080p), while the GTB-UHD600-HBTL is capable of 40 meters at 4K Ultra HD (70 meters at 1080p). Here are the details.
