KanexPro announced the new EXT-HDBTKVM100, a 4K HDBaseT KVM Extender and the EXT-HDRPT70, an HDBaseT Repeater with 1×2 Distribution Amplifier and Loop Out.
The 4K HDBaseT KVM Extender is ideal for digital signage applications where high resolution video, audio, USB KVM function and data with diagnostics can be sent back to the computer from the QSR display or vice versa. For users, a KVM extender can keep their work areas quieter and cooler allowing more focus and productivity. In addition, the KanexPro KVM Extender allows 4K transmission and extension over cost effective CATx cabling sending uncompressed video, audio, control, power over HDBaseT and USB for controlling your keyboard, mouse and other USB HID devices. The KanexPro 4K HDBaseT KVM Extender consists of a transmitter and receiver that are used to extend USB and 4K UHD AV up to 150 meters over HDBaseT. The USB KVM function supports USB 2.0 with display resolutions to 4K x 2K@30Hz and 60Hz and will also support 1080p HD and WUXGA. It is HDCP 2.2 compliant with CEC pass-through, supports the latest HDMI 2.0 specifications with Dolby Digital, DTS and DTS-HD audio formats. All the specs can be found here.
The HDBaseT Repeater with 1×2 DA and loop out is designed for digital signage clients looking to extend HDMI signals to two or more displays using a single HDMI device and allows users to look out to another HDBaseT repeater to daisy chain more displays making it ideal for retail, pharmacies, airports and restaurants, where it’s necessary to loop in and out to multiple displays. The device supports built-in audio de-embedding using phoenix connectors to 2-channel stereo from television speakers or an amplifier. It is HDCP 2.2 compliant with CEC pass-through and supports 4K@24, 30, 50 and 60Hz video resolutions with a 4:4:4 sampling rate up to 12 bit for better high-definition resolution support and color depths.
