KanexPro HDBaseT™ Extender for Digital Signage and Corporate AV

As video technology continues its progressive march, the demands placed on it also increase from 4K resolutions to higher color depths and longer runs, says Samuel Miranda, Business Development Manager. And you might have the biggest, highest resolution TV screen available, but if the signal reaching it isn’t at its strongest, then it doesn’t do you much good.

KanexPro is proud to announce its one of a kind HDBaseT™ Extender with PoH (Power over HDBaseT) and HDMI output on the transmitter for local monitor support which extends HDMI signals using shielded CAT6 up to 100 meters providing bi-directional IR and RS-232 control.

HDBASE100POEL

For the starters, the Extender supports solid resolutions up to UltraHD 4K with EDID and HDCP compliant ensuring proper handshake and output at the display side.

Key Features for AV Design and Install:

• Support for PoE – Power over Ethernet from either side of the extender set up to 330 feet (Tx to Rx – Rx to Tx) saving electrician’s cost and one power outlet.

• LAN accessibility available through 1x Ethernet port on the Sender to route Internet signals to 2x Ethernet jack on the Receiver for PC, media player or Smart TV connectivity over a single CAT6 cable using HDBaseT technology.

• Locking HDMI connectors and power supplies which protects the unit from cable jostling and signal loss.

• HDMI loop for local monitor out while extending 330’ to the receiver side. Fully compliant with the latest HDCP specifications and supports EDID management for proper resolution output up to ultra HD 4K, 1080p/60/120Hz & 3D.

The transmitter and receiver sets are built with aircraft grade aluminum enclosure, which provide light weight for mounting behind flat-panel TV’s or over the ceiling structures with sturdy finish.

Ideally used for Connected Home Theater applications, Digital Signage, Corporate AV, classroom technology and government applications where you can route ultra HD signals up to 330 feet (100meters) over a single STP CAT6a cable and provide power over Ethernet to the receiver side of the extender or vice versa.

KanexPro releases 5-Input Mini HD Scaler with HDBaseT™ output for corporate boardrooms and lecture halls

May 8th, 2014 KanexPro exhibiting at InfoComm 2014, booth N1657 is pleased to release a 5-Input Presentation Switcher & Scaler with HDBaseT™. Based on a high-performance video processing engine that can scale standard definition HDMI, RGB, VGA, C-video and component to HD quality video and audio up to 2K. Ideal for lecture halls, corporate boardrooms and command-control centers, where switching of analog and digital signals are mission critical.

From large congregations such as house of worship centers to lecture halls and corporate board rooms, the growth of routing, scaling and signal distribution has seen many game changing facets over the decade. Some prevailed while others failed. This has helped KanexPro design powerful systems based on integrators needs. Today’s audiovisual systems must support a extensive range of analog and digital A/V formats says Kashyap Khetia, Marketing Head for KanexPro. Switching and distributing these diverse signals can be abysmal for SI’s and installers.

As an added benefit, the HDSC51HDBT provides remote powering by not having to install an extra power outlet to the ceiling or wall, the included receiver handles power over Ethernet to power up eliminating the need for a separate power supply at the remote unit. Perfect for the slim flat-panel LED display or projector mounting that does not have an extra power socket.

AV Control made easy – Wide band IR signals and bi-directional RS-232 control can be transmitted alongside the video signal over the CAT6 connection, allowing the remote device to be controlled without the need for additional cabling. Bi-directional control extension eliminates the need for control system wiring to remote devices.

The HD scaler is housed in a compact 1U, half rack width enclosure that can be installed virtually anywhere, including discreet placement underneath a conference table, cabinet place, inside a credenza, or in a lectern. Visit us at InfoComm, Booth # N1657 for a live demo.

Kanex Pro Joins HDBaseT™ Alliance

KanexPro has joined the HDBaseT Alliance as an adopter member. The HDBaseT Alliance is an organization of companies working to promote HDBaseT technology.

HDBaseT is focused on distribution of uncompressed HD multimedia content. That has always been a focus of KanexPro’s, according to marketing chief Kashyap Khetia, who says that prior to joining the HDBaseT Alliance KanexPro was one of the earliest to use Valens chipset based extenders in routing distances up to 100 meters.

“We are tremendously excited to join the HDBaseT Alliance and take part in the comprehensive advances this technology is making in many digital signal distribution display applications,” said Khetia.

“HDBaseT Alliance membership will help safeguard that our future products are well aligned to meet the growing demand for simple yet effective video matrix switchers and extenders that our customers demand.”

“HDBaseT has become a de-facto standard for digital connectivity for the consumer markets and a variety of commercial markets including professional AV and broadcasting, and a primary driver of that growth is the addition of companies like KanexPro to the HDBaseT Alliance,” said Arial Sobelman, president, HDBaseT Alliance.

HDBaseT will be a focal point for KanexPro during InfoComm 2014 at its booth N1657.
