Hall Research has introduced the UH2X-P1 extender for HDBaseT 2.0 that they say sends uncompressed HDMI, USB 2.0, Ethernet, RS232, IR and PoE over a single CAT5e/6 cable. The extender kit includes a transmitter and receiver.
The extender is spec’d to support all PC and HDTV resolutions including 4K (UHD) and can extend video along with IR, RS232, USB, and IP using a single run of CAT5e/6 cable up to 100 meters (330 feet) — however, no color bit depth specification is listed. The PoH/PoE compliant extender includes a power supply that plugs to the transmitter end. The receiver gets its power through the Cat6 cable per IEEE802.3af standard as required by HDBaseT Alliance. The receiver includes an integrated two-port USB 2.0 Hub, making it perfect for remote KVM applications. The USB extension is transparent to the PC Host and requires no drivers or software.
In addition, the UH2X-P1 features audio return from receiver to the sender. The source for the independent audio return path is user selectable. It can be either from the ARC pin of the HDMI output connector (ARC signal from the connected TV) or from a separate SPDIF audio input connector available on the Receiver.
