Extron introduced the HDMI 201 Tx/Rx HDMI Extender, a transmitter-receiver unit for sending HDMI signals over long distances using conventional twisted pair cabling such as CAT 5e, CAT 6, and CAT 7. It fully supports HDMI for extending digital video, multi-channel audio, and control signals from HDMI-equipped devices.
The HDMI 201 Tx/Rx can transmit HDTV signals over 200 feet (60 meters) and computer video signals over 100 feet (30 meters) at UXGA (1600 x 1200) resolution. Extron is targeting both commercial and residential applications.
The HDMI 201 Tx/Rx is HDCP compliant. Also, RS-232 signals can be transmitted along with the HDMI signals, enabling remote display control. This unit can be remotely powered, so that only one of the devices requires external power. The HDMI 201 Tx transmitter and HDMI 201 Rx receiver are housed in 1″ high, quarter rack width metal enclosures. Pricing and availability are only available via Extron customer support.
