STEVENSVILLE, Md. April 22, 2009 - Centronics, Inc. (centronics.com), a leading distributor of audio, video, and accessory products for the residential, commercial, and security markets since 1959, is proud to announce the launch of the Elite HD -branded DHCT5 2x1 Cat5E to HDMI converter. The new DHCT5 is now available with an MSRP of $299.99.


"The DHCT5 automatically switches between the devices via simplex switching technology," explained Tony Pelura, Centronics general manager. "It allows the conversion of two HDMI devices to be run over a single Cat5e cable, so it not only solves the problem of having only a single Cat5e wire, but it works as a switcher, as well."

The DHCT5 extends 1080i/720p up to 200 ft. and 1080p/1920 x 1200 up to 100 ft., is HDMI 1.3 and HDCP compliant, and compensates for cable skew.

"Centonics has been an industry leader for 50 years for a reason," concluded Pelura. "The DHCT5 is yet another way Centronics continues to provide its customers with the most up -to -date and useful tools for their installations."
