Magenta Research has announced the introduction of a new extension product in the Infinea HD-One Series.
The HD-One LX is an HDMI extension product that utilizes a single Cat5/6 cable, and now sends 1080p up to 328ft/100m.
HD-One LX is fully HDCP-compliant and capable of extending uncompressed 1080p video, audio, IR and Bi-directional RS 232 to 328ft/100m allowing commands and data to flow in both directions.
The distance reach and use of inexpensive, easy to terminate UTP cable makes this product an obvious choice for HDMI extension whether it’s a Blu-Ray player, cable/set-top box or a PC with an HDMI output.
These distances are unachievable using specially constructed HDMI cables, which, even at short distances, deteriorate image quality, are extremely difficult to terminate in the field and carry a high cost factor. The HD-One LX delivers significant value for both commercial and residential applications.
“Magenta is very excited to offer yet another single cable HDMI extension product that, unlike many other solutions, sends uncompressed 1080p video with audio, IR and RS-232 up to 328ft without the need for a second UTP cable,” said Ed Caceres, Magenta Research’s Engineering Manager
“HD-One LX is a perfect solution for remotely locating an HDMI source, whether in a commercial digital signage installation or residential home theater.”
