Key Digital has introduced the KD-4KWHCEX HDMI 4K 60Hz 100 ft Wireless Extender KIT with IR. The KD-4KWHCEX extends up to 4K HDMI signals with the latest standards — 18G, 3840×2160 60 Hz resolution, HDR10 at 4:4:4 chroma, and deep color. The KD-4KWHCEX supports HDCP 2.2 and features TMDS re-clocking and signal regeneration. The two-unit extender kit utilizes 5G WiFi technology to transmit through walls and ceilings with minimal range loss and maximum resistance to wireless interference, delivering optimal quality at distances up to 100 feet / 30 meters with up to 164 feet / 50 meters extension possible in ideal environments. Up to four extender sets using four unique channels are possible within the same operating area.

IR control extension is delivered in parallel to HDMI extension, with a sensor at the receive unit collecting IR signals from a source device remote and passing it back to the transmitter unit where an IR emitter allows control of sources such as cable boxes and streaming hardware. The transmitter unit’s HDMI pass-through connection can be used to feed a local monitor or to connect to an AV receiver for audio support, including Dolby and DTS formats up to 5.1/6.1 (2-channel audio is supported at the KD-4KWHCEX receiver).

The KD-4KWHCEX is shipping now as a complete kit including a transmitter, receiver, power supplies, IR sensor, IR emitter, antennae and mounting hardware. The KD-4KWHCEX has an MSRP of $499.
