HDMI 2.0 Extender Kit

Our recently introduced point-to-point HDMI 2.0 extender kit provides integrators with the means to transmit AV signals up to 4K@60Hz with near zero latency over distances of up to 165 feet. Normally, HDMI cables only reach 50 feet before signal deterioration occurs, which can lead to onscreen images pixelating, lagging or dropping out entirely.

The extender (model HDMIEXT), which is fully compatible with ZyPer4K and ZyPerUHD encoders, preserves the signal integrity via Cat6/6A/7 cables. These cables are significantly more efficient to run through walls and crawl spaces than HDMI cables.

This kit answers the call from integrators for a one vendor, plug-and-play solution. Its transmitter supports HDMI loop out for confidence monitoring and other purposes. It also features passthrough of IR control signals from the receiver back to the transmitter. IR blaster and receiver cables are included in the box.

The kit is easily configured by connecting category cables between the extender and source and destination devices and then applying power. The kit also supports HDCP 2.2 copy protection.
