Transformative Engineering HLE-4K & HD-4K Extend 4K Signals Inexpensively
Transformative Engineering's new HLE-4K and HD-4K extenders can be used to distribute Ultra HD 4K signals throughout a home.
Providing electronics professionals with a solution that affordably addresses the long-range of transmission of Ultra HD 4K signals, the Massachusetts company Transformative Engineering has just introduced its HLE-4K and HD-4K extenders. Both products are compatible with 4K 60Hz signals with 4:4:4 chroma subsampling and HDR.
"The HLE-4K and HD-4K will allow integrators to offer a more flexible, more reliable solution for their client's current and future needs without blowing up the budget," says Jon Ralston, director of sales, Transformative Engineering.
Transformative Engineering explains that with Ultra HD 4K Blu-ray players, streaming devices and gaming consoles delivering 4K HDR content, the need to support these bandwidth-intensive technologies are greater than ever.
HLE-4K, HD-4K Extenders Support HDR, HDMI 2.0
The Boston-based company says that through its version of a customized HDBaseT Class B platform, the HLE-4K offers HDMI 2.0 with 4K and HDR support with extension up to 30 meters (98 feet).
Transformative companion solution, the HD-4K utilizes a customized version of the HDBase-T Class A platform to enable the transmission of HDMI 2.0 4K at 60Hz, along with 4:4:4 chroma subsampling with HDR as far as 60 meters (196 feet).
Competitively priced, Transformative Engineering says a pair of HLE-4Ks carry a MSRP of $699 for a set. The HD-4K is available at an MSRP of $899 per pair.
Both products begin shipping starting April 18.
