Gefen Extender for HDMI v1.3 Over One CAT-6a Cable Makes Extending HDTVs and Projectors at 1080p/60 Easy and Economical

Gefen Extender for HDMI v1.3 Over One CAT-6a CableCHATSWORTH, CA – Connectivity solutions provider Gefen today announced the availability of its improved version of the Extender for HDMI v1.3 over One CAT-6a cable.

This sender/receiver system delivers high definition video at 1080p full HD with up to 12 bit deep color support up to 175 feet (53m) in length using just one shielded CAT-6a cable. Resolutions at 1080i/60 can be extended even further up to 250 feet (76m). All HDMI v1.3 features are supported including lip sync audio, Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio.

With this extender, installers can cut cable costs by half as previous solutions required the use of two CAT-5 cables to reach the same distance. WDisplays mounted on walls or projectors installed on the ceiling can receive their HDMI signal from a source located in a rack mounted area or closet. At the 175 foot extension length, the system can accommodate most large conference rooms, retail or entertainment spaces.

“This extender was designed to offer professionals a reliable alternative to the use of two CAT-5 cables,” said Hagai Gefen, president and CEO, Gefen Inc. “If a building is already wired with one CAT-5 cable, installers can tap into the existing infrastructure at a shorter distance and avoid new cable runs. But with one CAT-6 cable, this system will streamline the installation even further and extend the range of extension.”

The Gefen Extender for HDMI v1.3 over One CAT-6 works with all high definition devices available today, including set-top boxes and gaming systems, as well as flat panel displays and projectors using the HDMI format. Support for HDCP compliance ensures it will work with protected content on Blu-rays and other DVD devices.

Its small form factor (each box measures just one-inch high by three-inches wide) further improves the installation process by eliminating bulky equipment in the viewing area. It comes with two external power supplies and a set of wall mounting brackets.
