MuxLab’s Newest Extender Supports 4K/60 with ARC for Enhanced Audio

MONTREAL, QUEBEC – The new HDMI/RS232 Extender Kit with ARC, HDBT, UHD-4K from MuxLab offers a straight-forward delivery of 4K video in the HDMI 2.0 format from source to display. What makes this Extender notable is its Audio Return Channel, allowing audio to be routed back to a receiver at the source side, which can connect directly to speakers. For intimate spaces and residential applications, it enables more immersive 4K viewing.

Source and display can be connected remotely at resolutions up to 4K@30Hz or 4K@60Hz (4:2:0) resolution, and longer distances for resolutions up to 1080p@60Hz.  Transmitter and receiver connect the source to the display using one CAT5e/6 cable.

“This product makes an excellent addition to any home or office environment, with support for all digital audio formats, HDMI 2.0 and HDR video,” added MuxLab’s Director of Product Management, Joe Teixeira. “Audio Return Channel is a valuable feature for easily adding a sound bar, or returning audio from a smart TV back to an AV Receiver for high-performance surround sound.”

The receiver can accept and return audio via both the HDMI and TosLink ports, and audio can be sent via the transmitter using the TosLink port.  RS232 and Bi-directional IR enables remote control of end devices.  MuxLab’s HDMI/RS232 Extender Kit with ARC, HDBT, UHD-4K will begin shipping in Q4 2018.
