HydraConnect LLC Ships its Third-Generation of HDBaseT Extenders

...updated for greater installer convenience, lower power consumption, and easier mounting.

DENVER (9/10/13) -- HydraConnect LLC, the Denver-based manufacturer of digital audio-video switching systems noted for their automated setup capabilities, is now shipping its new HEXT-21b HDBaseT Extenders and HEXT-21b-RCV receivers.


In home automation and entertainment systems, extenders use inexpensive networking cable to deliver high definition video and audio signals to TVs located up to 330 feet distant from the transmitter or one of the company's HDMI-to-HDBaseT matrix distribution switches. This new product represents a third generation of extender technology from HydraConnect LLC, now using less power and offering added installation flexibility.

The new HEXT-21b extender kits are a direct replacement to the HEXT-21a, and are offered at the same price. The new models feature integrated mounting ears to eliminate one more step in the installation process. The receiver now has the diagnostic lights relocated to the side of the case so they can easily be viewed when mounted behind a TV.

The HEXT-21b has a more efficient power supply to provide even cooler operation in tight spaces. The extender takes its power from the network cable, so it does not need a separate power supply. It is twice as efficient as most competitive products - 8 watts operating, and 2 watts in standby mode.

The HEXT-21b extenders and HEXT-21b-RCV receivers are now available.

These, and other exciting products from HydraConnect LLC, will be on display in Booth 1529, September 26-28 at the CEDIA Expo in Denver.
