Extron Introduces New HDMI Long Distance Extender

Extron Electronics introduces the HDMI 201 Tx/Rx HDMI Extender, a transmitter and receiver set for sending HDMI - High Definition Multimedia Interface signals over long distances.

Anaheim, California (September 14, 2006) - Extron Electronics introduces the HDMI 201 Tx/Rx HDMI Extender, a transmitter and receiver set for sending HDMI - High Definition Multimedia Interface signals over long distances using conventional twisted pair cabling such as CAT 5, CAT 5e, CAT 6, and CAT 7. It fully supports HDMI 2.1 for extending digital video, multi -channel audio, and control signals from HDMI -equipped devices. With the HDMI 201 Tx/Rx, integrators can build a high quality, fully digital pathway for HDTV between any two locations within a residence, home theater, or other A/V system. HDTV signals including 1080p can be transmitted over 60 meters (200 feet) of UTP cable.

'The new HDMI 201 Tx/Rx provides a cost -effective, high performance approach to sending high resolution HDMI signals over considerable distances in residential installations,' says Lee Dodson, vice president of marketing for Extron. 'Integrators can take advantage of standard UTP cabling in homes with structured wiring to send high quality, fully digital HDTV and audio.'
The HDMI 201 Tx/Rx is HDCP compliant, fully supporting long distance transmission of HDCP - High -bandwidth Digital Content Protection encrypted material for copy protection of HDTV broadcasts and high resolution content from next generation, high definition DVD, HD -DVD, or Blu -ray Disc players as well as HD satellite boxes.
For convenient, streamlined system integration, RS -232 signals can be transmitted along with the HDMI signals, enabling remote display control by home automation systems. Additionally, either the transmitter or receiver 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.
