Tripp Lite, a world-leading manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, has expanded its line of HDBaseT audio/video extender products. The new models include functionality to transmit 4K x 2K Ultra High Definition (UHD) signals up to 328 ft. using widely available Cat5e/6/6a cables, support for 10/100 Ethernet and Power over Cable (PoC). These new items join Tripp Lite’s existing line-up of HDBaseT extenders that support HDMI, Serial and IR transmissions.
Using HDBaseT technology to transmit uncompressed digital audio and video over a single cable, these models help reduce cable clutter and create a cost-effective solution for transmitting signals to digital signage, multimedia displays and home theater installations. The products also support Power over Cable functionality, requiring a power source only at the transmitter end of the installation, providing more flexibility in receiver placement.
To complement Tripp Lite’s existing 4 x 2 matrix transmitter, the line extension also includes a 4 x 4 matrix model, which allows the user to share HDMI digital video from four components to four different monitors at resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 at 30 Hz.
