New GefenPRO ELR Extender Sends HDMI with 3DTV, IR, RS-232, Ethernet and Power over a Single CAT-5 Cable
Digital connectivity solutions provider Gefen today announced the availability of its second generation Extra Long Range (ELR) Extender for HDMI using Power over Line (POL) technology. This new model, the GefenPRO ELR Extender for HDMI over CAT5 with POL II, uses a traditional sender/receiver methodology to extend HDMI with 3DTV pass-through, IR, RS-232, Ethernet and power up to 330-feet (100m) in distance using just one CAT-5 cable.
Gefen POL technology is based on the PoE (Power over Ethernet) standard and frees the receiver from power requirements, while providing an additional 5 volts to power supplemental hardware, such as a switcher, splitter or scaler to further enhance system performance.
âThis is an absolutely essential solution wherever power is limited in the display area,â? explained Hagai Gefen, president and CEO, Gefen. âInstallers can now use just one CAT-5 cable to reach way beyond HDMIâs limits using Gefenâs ELR technology based more
