Atlona introduces a product to extend HD video over a single CAT 5 cable

Atlona Releases Single CAT-5 Extender for HDMI

Until now, extending HDMI over CAT -5 cable has involved running two Cat 5 cables, one for the video signal, and another for the DDC information. There were a handful of single interconnect solutions using a single fiber optic and some using CAT -6 or CAT -7 cables, but most were limited to a maximum range or 60' at 1080p.


Atlona's new Single CAT -5 HDMI extender (model: AT -HDMI40SR) will extend HD signal from HDMI sources up to 200' at 1080i or 130' at 1080p. The device has a built in video equalizer, which is adjustable though a dial on the receiver. The unit is an affordable solution with a low MSRP of $329, and is expected to ship mid April (2008). Check the New Products section on the Lenexpo website for more information.
