Gefen ToolBox Ships Extra Long Range Extender for 3DTV using HDBaseT

Gefen ToolBox Extender for HDMI 3DTV

Gefen’s newest extender supports the extension of 108p full HD with 3DTV, IR and multi-channel audio over one CAT-5 cable.

CHATSWORTH, CA – Connectivity solutions provider Gefen today announced that the newest extension solution from its Gefen ToolBox line of wall-mountable hardware is currently shipping. The Gefen ToolBox Extender for HDMI 3DTV uses innovative HDBaseT technology from Valens Semiconductor to enhance the length and features of its high definition extension capability.

Small sender and receiver units link any hi-def source to an HDTV display using one industry-standard CAT-5 cable, delivering 1080p full HD with 3DTV pass-through, multi-channel audio and IR remote control up to 330 feet (100m).

Aside from streamlining cables and enhancing HDMI v1.3 support with 3DTV, this long range extender offers an IR back channel so customers can conveniently control their source(s) through a remote pointed at the display.

“The most compelling feature of this new product is its 3DTV extension support for the early adopters, reaching distances up to 100 meters using one CAT-5 cable,” explained Hagai Gefen, president and CEO, Gefen.

The Extender for HDMI 3DTV is fully HDCP-compliant, with Gefen features such as locking HDMI connection cables and locking power supplies to improve performance and eliminate disconnects.

“Gefen was the first in the world to use the HDBaseT technology from Valens Semiconductor to power this long distance extension solution for HDMI,” said Micha Risling, vice president of Sales & Marketing for Valens Semiconductor. “This technology nearly doubles the distance high definition video can be extended over just one CAT-5 cable.”

The Gefen ToolBox Extender for HDMI 3DTV comes in two custom finishes, a glossy cream or flat black to better support decors of all types.
