Atlona Introduces HDMI CAT5 Extenders that are 1.3 Compatible. See them at EHX 2008!

The company that brought you one of the 1st ever 1.3b HDMI cables is at it again with their all new HDMI1.3 CAT5 extenders.

an Jose, CA -October 8, 2008 - Atlona Technologies has been leading the pack in the world of HDMI 1.3. Atlona was one of the first to offer 1.3b certified HDMI cables, then more recently announced the conversion of its entire line of HDMI matrix switchers to be compatible with the new 1.3 standard. Now Atlona announces their newest HDMI 1.3 product, the AT -HD -IR40SR. This extender allows the lossless transfer of HDMI 1.3 1080p video with embedded Dolby TrueHD multi channel audio over two CAT5 cables, up to 60M (200Ft). This extender also feature the ability to extend IR for remote controls from the display back to the source, letting users control a HDMI device such as a Blu -Ray player even if it is in another room. These new extenders will allow users to take full advantage of the HDMI 1.3 content that is slowly trickling into the market through Blu -Ray and downloadable systems such as AppleTV. The HDMI 1.3 standard promises support of higher frame rates and resolutions because of the higher bandwidth requirements. Now with the AT -HD -IR40SR, users can enjoy the 1.3 features, even if their display is farther than the distance limitation of strait cable.


AT -HD -IR40SR are moderately priced at $329.00, and are currently available.
