Pulse-Eight has announced the launch of the new Pulse-Eight Ultra Receiver product, which has been officially approved by Steinway Lyngdorf to work with the Steinway & Sons P300 immersive sound processor.
The Pulse-Eight Ultra Receiver is a HDBaseT 4K60 Type-A-compliant receiver solution, that employs DSC technology, enabling long-distance transmission (100m/328ft) of HDMI2.0 video (4K, 60Hz with 4:4:4 chroma encoding) and 100Mbps ethernet over a single category cable. The Pulse-Eight Ultra Receiver is, at only 13mm high, perfect for a discreet installation behind ultra-thin TVs.
“Today’s 4K video and audio extension requirements over a long distance offer a technical challenge due to the immense data rate requirements over the cable,” says Thomas Birkelund, CEO/CTO of Steinway Lyngdorf. “Our P300 sound processor offers the most advanced HDBaseT output available, supporting HDMI 2.0 (18Gbps) extension. We are confident of the capabilities of the Pulse-Eight Ultra Receiver which has been thoroughly validated by our engineers to work flawlessly with our P300 processor at the highest rates achievable.”
Jonathan Regalado-Hawkey, Business Development Director for Pulse-Eight adds: “We are extremely proud of this endorsement from Steinway Lyngdorf, who are regarded as a standard of excellence within the AV industry for offering the finest sound systems in the market. All of our Video/Audio solutions are expertly designed and manufactured in-house so we are committed to providing the best-in-class products to our customers.”
