Atlona today announced that the company is now shipping its HDMI extenders featuring HDBaseT-Lite technology.
This extender family sends audio, video, and IR control over a single category cable. The low-cost AT-HDTX (transmitter) and AT-HDRX (receiver) are ideal for moderately-priced home theater installations, extending 1080p up to 230 feet.
The AT-HD-IR extender series offers the same solid reliability of HDBaseT-Lite with the addition of IR control functions. Both pairs feature Power over Category Cable (PoCc) to eliminate a power supply for the receiver.
The HDMI extenders feature locking HDMI and USB firmware update ports, support for resolutions up to UltraHD (4Kx2K), and CEC pass-through. Along with support for 3D, they also support digital audio signals up to DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD.
Convenient captive-screw terminations for control and power offer more reliable connections, and help reduce wire bundles for cleaner-looking racks. The units are all compatible with Atlona’s new HDMI matrix switchers and distribution amplifiers.
“Our newest family of extenders takes video beyond the technical limits of standard HDMI,” said Steve Heintz, senior product manager, Atlona. “With their advanced HDBaseT technology and inexpensive field-terminated cabling, these units are the perfect solution for reliably extending signals over a single category cable in home theater systems of all sizes.”
