C2G, a brand of Legrand, has introduced its new HDMI over Cat Extender Box Transmitter to Box Receiver – 4K 60Hz in the company’s effort to ensure 4K HDMI source signals reach 4K displays with flawless quality in conference rooms, classrooms, lecture halls, and many other installation applications where distances are far beyond the length limitations of standard HDMI cabling.
The C2G solution allows a 4K HDMI source to be extended up to 115 feet for 60Hz 4:4:4 or up to 131 feet at 30Hz 4:4:4 to a 4K display using a single Cat 6/6a Ethernet cable. It can extend 1080p at 60Hz up to 164 feet with Cat 5e/6/6a cable, the company adds.
“As more HDMI installations focus on incorporating sources with up to 4K quality, it’s imperative that signals can traverse the lengthy distances of these installations,” says Jennifer Crotinger, product manager at C2G. “Our HDMI over Cat Extender Box Transmitter to Box Receiver – 4K 60Hz has the signal attenuation to cover over 130 feet reliably — without signal loss or degradation.”
The slim-profile solution is HDCP 2.2-compliant, and multichannel audio formats are supported, including PCM 7.1, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD Master Audio.
It supports a one-way IR pass-through from receiver to transmitter. With bidirectional Power over Cable (PoC) support, one power adapter at either transmitter or receiver side can power both units, so no additional power adapter is required, allowing for greater flexibility in installations.
