Kordz Introduces the Industry's Smallest HDMI Extender

Designed to top standards for performance and compliance, the new PLX -HD50 operates over dual CAT6.

Atlanta, GA - CEDIA Expo 2010 - September 23 -26 - Booth 5158 - Kordz, a leading manufacturer of high purity HDMI cables, announces its new HDMI extender - the PLX -HD50. Kordz designed the PLX -HD50 with a new form factor, built with a compact sized transmitter (TX) and receiver (RX) units, making it the smallest in the industry to date.

Extending an uncompressed HDMI signal over dual CAT5e/6 cables, the PLX -HD50 is capable of a transmission range up to 200 feet at 1080i and over 150 feet at 1080p resolution. The transmission range is based on the cable quality and HDMI enabled equipment being used. There is guaranteed 1080p with high quality digital video and audio over CAT5e/6 without compression in the PLX -HD50 extender. While many other extenders have reliability problems, Kordz's PLX -HD50 is a very reliable and robust unit. It is also HDCP compliant and its robust casing can be mounted vertically or horizontally, giving dealers an ease of installation.

"There's still a strong need in the industry for solutions that extend wired installs without adding additional cable and compromising quality," said Michael Schaller, Director of Kordz USA, "The PLX -HD50 provides an unobtrusive but high performance device that will reliably extend HDMI to long distances."

The PLX -HD50 has an advanced HDMI 1.3 feature set, including:
• Deep Color (8/10/12 bit color)
• X.V. Color
• 480i/p, 576i/p, 720p, 1080i/p (24/50/60)
• HD Audio support: PCM(2.1/5.1/7.1), Dolby Digital (Plus/True HD), DTS Master Audio

The PLX -HD50 comes with a 12 month warranty and is available now.
