Commercial integrators can benefit from the two new Gefen® 4K Ultra HD Multi-Format 2x1 HDBaseT™ Senders (EXT-UHDV-WP-HBTLS-TX and EXT-UHDV-HBTLS-TX) and a 4K Ultra HD HDBaseT™ Receiver (EXT-UHDA-HBTL-RX).

The multi-format senders and matching receiver facilitate high performance signal extension from 4K HDMI and VGA sources, two of the most popular video formats for presentation devices. This multi-format input capability, along with automatic source switching, is perfect for collaboration environments in universities and corporate environments.

The EXT-UHDV-WP-HBTLS-TX features the popular Decora® wall-plate that can be installed in-wall, blending in with the interior of the venue. The EXT-UHDV-HBTLS-TX is a high-performance solution in a compact, easy-to-install enclosure that can be surface-mounted or placed on a shelf.

Both senders can accept 4K Ultra HD HDMI and VGA sources and extend them up to 70 meters (230 feet) at 1080p and 40 meters (130 feet) at 4K over a single CAT-5e cable. Switching between HDMI and VGA can be set to automatic or manual via the front panel button or RS-232.

A powerful built-in scaler on each sender can upscale lower resolution VGA signals with legacy aspect ratio to widescreen WUXGA, ensuring stunning presentations and smooth switching transitions between the HDMI and the VGA sources.

Both senders use the Gefen implementation of the HDBaseT™ technology with enhancements including Advanced EDID Management. Highest performance multichannel digital audio including 7.1 channels of LPCM and HBR (High Bit Rate) digital audio formats, such as Dolby Atmos®, Dolby® TrueHD, DTS:X™, and DTS-HD Master Audio™ are passed through from the HDMI input to output.

While the wall-plate sender extends bi-directional RS-232, the EXT-UHDV-HBTLS-TX extends both RS-232 and 2-way IR, facilitating the control of A/V sources placed near the sender from the viewing location, and sending commands from the head end to control the display or another device placed near the receiver unit. Both senders also accept RS-232 commands for switching, scaler controls, and EDID management from a third-party controller placed near the sender or remotely by the receiver.

Audio volume on the EXT-UHDV-HBTLS-TX can be adjusted or muted via the front panel buttons or RS-232 commands from a third-party controller, a useful tool for presentations in corporate, educational, and institutional installations.

Each sender features a professional API, designed to maximise control and feedback when used with third-party automation devices.

The Gefen EXT-UHDA-HBTL-RX is a high-performance HDBaseT™ Receiver that has been designed to work with the two sender units. It de-embeds analog L/R, TOSLINK® optical digital, and coaxial digital audio from the video for use with a separate audio system, enhancing the impact of presentations.

The standard PoH (Power over HDBaseT) technology enabled on these products can supply power remotely from the receiver to the senders, using the same CAT-5 cable that extends the HDMI signal. The table-top sender can also power the receiver.

Thanks to its IR Extender input, the receiver unit features an ultra-low-profile enclosure that can be completely hidden away behind the display and/or surface-mounted as required.

All three products have been designed to work with Gefen Syner-G™ software, creating endless possibilities in product configuration as well as in-field firmware updates.

Each unit is easy-to-install making signal extension effortless for professional installers, while enhancing the performance and utility of any AV installation for the end-user
