The high-quality, well-priced HD-BaseT extender set is perfect for every media technology supplier and event technician. Via a single CAT.6 cable a high-resolution ”HighSpeed HDMI with ethernet“ signal, a 10/100 BaseT ethernet signal plus an infrared remote controller signal can be transmitted over distances of up to 100m.
All essential HDMI standards are complied with:
1080p, 3D, 4K, ARC, HDCP, 7.1CH, Home Cinema TrueHD, DTS-HD
The infrared function transmits the remote controller signals from the receiver (display, beamer) to the transmitter, which allows the devices located there (such as BluRay player, AV receiver, set-top box etc) to be telecommanded. For this purpose the supplied non-wireless IR transmitter is connected to the HD-BaseT transmitter and angled towards those devices. The receiver has an integrated IR receiver.
The receiver features a built-in 2-port ethernet switch which allows to connect up to 2 terminal devices (e.g. beamer, display) and integrate them into the network. To that end simply connect the transmitter to the network environment by means of a patch cable.
The set contains one transmitter, one receiver, two power supplies and one non-wireless infrared transmitter.
For the HD-BaseT set SOMMER CABLE optionally supplies the matching ready-made installation cable kit. It contains a single-sided finished CAT.7 installation line (1,000 MHz) with an open end. The line can thus be laid ideally and cut to the required length. Also included is the no-tools mountable RJ45 metal plug connector for the open end. For mobile applications with the HD-BaseT set SOMMER CABLE recommends the flexible and robust SC MERCATOR CAT.7 PUR XL. This AWG 23/7 line is ideally suited for “on the road” use.
