Atlona has announced that is has begun shipping two new HDMI over HDBaseT signal extender kits for long distance transmission featuring 4K/UHD capability and HDCP 2.2 copy protection pass-through.
The AT-UHD-EX-70C and the AT-UHD-EX-70 were both revealed at ISE 2015 in Amsterdam earlier this year, but now installers will be able to purchase them for use in future installations.
Providing 70m of signal extension, the AT-UHD-EX-70C Transmitter/Receiver kit includes pass-through of bidirectional RS-232 and 12V IR control signals and is designed for use with Atlona matrix switchers.
Also offering 70m of signal extension, the AT-UHD-EX-70 Transmitter/Receiver kit is designed for residential or commercial point-to-point applications and features PoE to remotely power the receiver from the transmitter.
Atlona says that these two products have been designed to save time and integration costs by eliminating the AC power outlet at the receiver.
“Extenders have always been core products for us, as well as for our dealers,” says Ilya Khayn, Atlona president and co-founder.
“They have come to rely on us for affordable, reliable solutions that integrate easily and quickly and with these two new kits our dealers are getting the most technologically up-to-date extenders on the market.”
Ilya says that both extender kits support 4K/UHD video @60Hz, provide pass-through of HDCP 2.2 content, support EDID communication and employ HDBaseT technology for extending signals, including multi-channel audio in formats up to Dolby Atmos and DTS-HD Master Audio.
Both kits also offer configuration-free set-up and field-updateable firmware, rear-panel I/O ports and low-profile enclosures – 2.5 cm high, one-quarter rack-width.
