New Crestron HDMI® Extenders Support HDBaseT® and 4K Ultra HD

Low-cost, easy-to-install HD-EXT3-C and HD-EXT4-C extend HDMI up to 330 feet via HDBaseT over single CAT5e/UTP cable; black and white faceplates available

Crestron today announced the immediate release of two new models of its pioneering line of HDMI extenders. The HD-EXT3-C and HD-EXT4-C support 4K resolution content and can transmit HDMI long distance via HDBaseT™ using standard CAT5e/UTP cable.


Both the HD-EXT3-C and HD-EXT4-C support 4K signals and extend uncompressed, HDCP-protected HDMI content up to 330 feet (100 meters) via HDBaseT without any signal degradation. Wall mount transmitters for each are available with black or white faceplates.

In addition to HDMI in and out, the HD-EXT3-C also includes IR and RS-232 transmission, delivering a complete signal and control solution. Instead of control ports, the HD-EXT4-C offers separate analog audio in and out to support DVI, or other devices that don't support embedded digital audio. The analog audio output of the transmitter can also feed a room amplifier or powered speakers.

"With the capability to transmit 4K Ultra HD signals these new extenders meet tomorrow's AV distribution requirements, today," said Sean Goldstein, Crestron Marketing VP. "With a control system installed or not, they deliver true uncompressed HD AV signals over a single wire longer than a football field."

As a low-cost standalone system or as part of a complete Crestron control system the new HDMI extenders provide a low-cost, reliable signal extension solution that's simple to implement. No special configuration or programming is required - just connect your source and display and enjoy high-quality HD video and audio from across the room - or the other end of the home or building. The transmitter mounts easily in a single-gang wall box, inside an equipment rack, or attaches to any flat surface. The compact receiver mounts discretely behind a display device, projector or wherever necessary.

The HD-EXT3-C transmitter and receiver (HD-TX3-C and HD-RX3-C) are also available separately. The HD-TX3 and HD-RX3 are ideal for direct interface to an HDBaseT source or display, or as a single gang Crestron DigitalMedia™ transmitter or low-cost DM® receiver.
