MOUNT VERNON, NY – November 10, 2017 – The award winning manufacturer of professional A/V and Control Systems introduce the KD-X422WP wall plate HDBaseT extender set. KD-X422WP includes KD-X422WPTx wall plate transmitter and KD-XWPRx black-box receiver. This HDCP2.2 compliant set extends UHD 4K/30 4:4:4 and UHD 4K/60 4:2:0 signals up to 125′ over a single CAT5e/6 UTP/STP cable. For non-4K applications 1080p/60 signals can be extended up to 230′.
KD-X422WP is ideal for professional video installations in conference rooms, huddle spaces, class rooms, and more. While other Wall Plate options in the A/V market include unnecessary and unattractive connections and settings on the face of the unit, Key Digital understands end-users’ desire for function as well as a pleasing aesthetic. IR, RS-232, and power connections are located on phoenix terminals on the rear of the plate.
“Ever since we started specifying our new wall plate in consultant projects the demand has grown in a big way! Our new KD-x422wp delivers the most robust method of HDBaseT using our exclusive Full Buffer Technology. That has allowed this and other Key Digital HDBaseT products for classrooms, conference rooms, and applications needing wall plates to be specified as No Substitution on many of the top consultant build sheets,” said Dwayne Husbands, Sales Manager for Key Digital.
Flexible POH (Power over HDBaseT) on KD-X422WP gives the integrator the choice of powering either the Tx or the Rx unit. A special 25’ lead is built-in to the power transformer – perfect for wiring up the wall from the Tx unit to the monitor if needed. For integrators looking for the most robust integration possible, a redundant power supply can be connected without damaging the units.
Even while concealing the technical features from the end-users view, KD-X422WP still features professional tool suites giving integrators the choice of EDID handshake delivered to the connected video source. Each Tx unit may extend RS-232 to the connected monitor/projector or be set as a controllable device for collecting connectivity status.
