Smart-e's new modular HDMI and HDBaseT compact splitter, the 4K-1:3, which transmits up to and including a high resolution 4K HDMI signal to multiple displays, is now being shipped from the company's Surrey headquarters.
Featuring one selectable input, three selectable outputs and one fixed HDMI output, the 4K-1:3 is part of Smart-e's 4Konnect range of HDMI modular products which support and extend 4K resolutions. The module's flexibility lends it to applications including airports, transport hubs, retail parks, PC extension, and in particular for digital signage where it can be used to duplicate video signals across 1000 plus screens.
The 4K-1:3 transmits resolutions up to and including 4K UHD, together with Ethernet, RS232 and IR over a single 100m CAT6 cable to three displays, and can be configured as a transmitter or receiver, offering the flexibility to re-purpose simply by swapping modules.
Multiple units can be cascaded together to a combined distance of 750m (5 levels of CAT6 distribution). Infrared and RS232 control can be passed through to each display to allow for integrated control solutions, whilst an external power supply provides inline power to the receiver units.
Each selectable output bay can accept either a native HDMI module (4K-HDMI-I/O) allowing for local display connection without the need for a CAT6 receiver, or a CAT6 transmitter module (4K-HDBT-TXF) enabling remote screen connection up to 150 metres from the source.
The modules support full HDMI digital video and embedded audio, with compatibility for HD 720p, 1080p, Ultra HD 2K and 4K resolutions, together with passthrough support for EDID, HDCP, CEC and control protocols. Additionally, each bay allows for full duplex RS232, 100baseT Ethernet and reverse path IR.
The 4K-1:3 is available direct from Smart-e or distributor Mediatron (www.mediatron.co.uk) and includes a 3 year 'return to base' warranty, extended warranty options and extensive technical support. For more information contact Smart-e on tel: 01306 628264 or visit www.smart-e.co.uk.
