Daisy chain, extend and control 4K video and audio supporting up to 16 displays
Brea, Calif. – October 18, 2016 – KanexPro, an industry-leading provider of connectivity solutions to the IT and A/V markets, announces the 4K HDBaseT™ Repeater (EXT-HDRPT100M) with one HDBaseT input and one HDBaseT output creating a daisy-chain path to multiple displays with each repeater supporting up to 330 feet (100 meters) in distance.
The HDBaseT Repeater from KanexPro provides two HDMI output ports and two RS-232 ports dedicated for each output to control displays. The RS-232 ports can send commands to compatible displays and projectors and each repeater in the daisy chain can be individually addressed to send specific commands to a particular unit. Professionally designed for digital signage applications, users can extend HDMI signals to two or more displays using a single HDMI device with the HDBaseT Repeater, allowing users to daisy chain additional HDBaseT repeaters. Up to eight repeaters can be used in a chain with the HDBaseT Repeater, creating a sixteen display signage connection from a single HDMI source on the sender-side.
“We’re pleased to launch the new HDBaseT Repeater, ideal for extending and controlling uncompressed high resolution displays at airports, banks, restaurants and pharmacies,” says Kashyap Khetia, product marketing manager for KanexPro. “Content can be looped in and out to multiple displays in a daisy-chain fashion with outputs to dual HDMI displays at every 100 meters creating an array of content from only one HDMI source device. We’ve designed the HDBaseT Repeater with our technologist in mind, giving them a useful, robust product for their commercial applications.”
The HDBaseT Repeater extends uncompressed 4K HDMI video, stereo audio and RS-232 up to 330 feet over a single CAT6 cable. The simple plug and play Repeater supports built-in audio de-embedding with phoenix connectors to a 2-channel stereo or amp. In addition, it supports HDCP 2.2 specifications with 4K@24, 30, 50 and 60Hz video resolutions with a 4:2:0 sampling rate up to 10 bit for robust HDR and color depths.
