HR introduces 4K Javelin Cables
Sept 9, 2014
Tustin, California, USA – Sept 9, 2014

Hall Research announces addition of the 4K-Javelin™ active plenum HDMI cables to it's line of digital extension products. The 4K-Javelin™ cables utilize the latest in optoelectronics to extend HDMI signals far beyond the typical limitations of copper cables. The cables are a hybrid of fiber and copper that allow HDMI signals to be extended 200 ft or longer with zero loss. All PC and HDTV resolutions are supported including 4K Ultra HD. The HDCP compliant cables also support DDC and CEC. Proprietary circuitry is conveniently incorporated inside the HDMI connectors to convert the video signals to light pulses and back.

The cables are available in standard lengths to 200 ft. No external power supply is required as power is drawn from the 5v signal pin of the source HDMI output.

The 4K Javelin™ cables are thin, flexible, and lightweight (only 12 oz for 50 ft cable). They can handle any resolution or color depth including non-standard video formats up to a maximum data rate of 10.2 Gbps. No compression is used so the image at the far end of the cable is 100% identical to the source.

The cables transmit digital video signals using light pulses. This provides high immunity to electromagnetic interference and consequently eliminates the chance of video dropouts due to environmental electromagnetic noise.

The 4K Javelin™ can be used like regular HDMI cables but without the worry of boosters or equalizers. Being Plenum, also makes it possible to be used in virtually any installation environment. Applications include, home theater, conference rooms, schools, airports, hospitals and more. Hall Research is currently stocking 50, 75, 100, 150 and 200 ft lengths.

HR adds HD-Cat™ 1x3 HDMI Splitter over Dual Cat6
Sep 24, 2013
Tustin, California, USA – September 24, 2013

Hall Research adds HD-Cat™ Family 1x3 HDMI Splitter over Dual Cat6

Hall Research’s Model UH-2D-3S is a member of the HD-Cat™ video extension and distribution product line. The UH-2D-3S is used to extend HDMI™ or DVI video up to 150 ft @ 1080i/720p on 2 Cat6 cables to 3 remote receivers (Model UH-2C-R). The unit provides one local HDMI output and 3 sets of RJ45 pairs for connection to the remote receivers. Cables that are of lower quality and construction will reduce the maximum distance.

The remote receiver (UH-2C-R) re-aligns the pixel clock and generates a clean pixel clock for the display, thereby taking out any skew that may have been induced in the cable. This allows daisy-chaining (to achieve further extension), and produces a crisp image as clear as the original.

The HDCP compliant UH-2D-3S uses an intelligent method to report the EDID to the source for flexibility with various sources. The unit is housed in a compact sturdy metal enclosure that is 1RU high so that several can fit on a Rack Shelf. Status indicators of the remotes are on the front panel and it is designed with a built-in power supply.

HR Introduces HDMI Audio Extractor w/EDID Mgmt
Oct 24, 2012
Tustin, California, USA – Oct 24, 2012

Hall Research Introduces HDMI Audio Extractor with EDID Mgmt

Hall Research has released the Model EMX-HD-AUD Audio Extractor for HDMI with EDID management, cable equalization, audio and video status indication, and USB port for connection to a PC. This versatile device can be used to extract digital and analog audio from HDMI, extend HDMI cable length, pass-thru or learn EDID from any display, and re-clock both TMDS video and DDC data. The EMX-HD-AUD resolves many system level HDMI signal-chain issues by acting as an intelligent intermediary allowing incompatible components to function properly.

The EMX-HD-AUD can also diagnose and analyze HDMI problems. Multi-color LED's on the unit indicate EDID routing and provide real-time indication of the HDMI video and audio types. The audio outputs include both analog and multi-channel digital TOSLINK. Each of the audio outputs can be independently muted, including the audio in the HDMI output.

The EMX-HD-AUD constructs an EDID table (capabilities list) for the source either from internal memory or from the connected output. The internal EDID data can be "learned" from the output, or uploaded to it from a PC via the USB port. Free Windows™ PC software is available on the product's website that allows reading, saving, manipulating, and writing EDID tables to and from the unit.

The EMX-HD-AUD is HDMI 1.3 and 1.4 (deep-color and 3D) compatible, and automatically compensates for the signal degradation caused by long video cable runs of up to 50 ft (15 m) on its input and can drive HDMI cables on its output to 30 ft (10 m).

HR adds Dual-Link DVI Extender w/EDID Mgmt + USB Ctrl
May 14, 2012

Tustin, California, USA – May 14, 2012

Hall Research announces Dual-Link DVI Extender w/ EDID Mgmt & USB Control

Tustin, CA – The EMX-DVI is a single or dual link DVI extender that automatically compensates for the signal degradation caused by long video cables of up to 50 ft (15 m) on its input and can drive output cables to 40 ft (12 m). A pushbutton is used to change the mode between single and dual link TMDS signals.

The real power of the EMX-DVI is its advanced capabilities to manage EDID including its ability to “learn” and emulate EDID from any display and manage stored EDID data via its USB 2.0 port. The Display Data Channel (DDC) can either be by-passed through the EMX-DVI, or “Emulated”, whereby the EDID is supplied from internal memory and HDCP is turned off , forcing the source to send non-content protected video without HDCP ( a useful feature for connecting PC’s to video conferencing systems that do not support HDCP).

The EMX-DVI provides driver free USB 2.0 port connection to a PC allowing the user to acquire, save, manipulate, and write EDID tables to and from the device.

Additionally, the unit provides DVI-I bypass for analog RGBHV (or VGA) signals, so it can manage EDID for VGA sources and displays using inexpensive VGA to DVI cables or adapters. In most applications, no external power supply connection is required as the unit draws power from the video source. The EMX-DVI is competitively list- priced at $185 and is available from stock.

Hall Research Unveils VGA/HDTV Video Processor

Hall Research releases the SC-VGA-2B, a VGA/HDTV Video Processor that allows any PC (VGA) or HDTV (YPbPr) video signal to be scaled up or down to any other PC or HDTV resolution or format. Advanced features, like X-axis mirroring, make the scaler suitable in many applications.

Tustin, California - October 26, 2009

Hall Research announces today the release of the Model SC-VGA-2B, a VGA/HDTV video processor packed with advanced and unique features in a single compact package. The video processor combines the functions of a video splitter, scaler, scan converter, and bi-directional PC-to-HDTV format transformer.

The SC-VGA-2B allows any PC or HDTV video signal to be scaled up or scaled down to any other PC or HDTV resolution. Additionally, the SC-VGA-2B includes a video loop output, so the original video input is available for display on a local monitor. The processed video output is user definable to be either RGBHC (VGA) or YPbPr (Component Video). Furthermore, the output is easily configured to match the native resolution of virtually any display - RGB (from VGA to WUXGA), or HDTV (from 480p to 1080p) . The video can be horizontally mirrored (x-axis flip), a useful feature for Teleprompters and rear projection systems. The scaler incorporates a large video memory for real-time frame rate capture and conversion with time-base correction, ensuring a smooth image. Input video mode and timing are automatically detected, so no operator intervention is required. The SC-VGA-2B provides extensive on-screen display capabilities, and supports EDID on all applicable ports.

"The SC-VGA-2B is the latest progression of our most successful video processor line," said Ali Haghjoo, Chief Executive Officer for Hall Research. "We are fortunate to have a talented engineering team which has helped combine several key features into one compact product," he continued. "Hall Research focuses on the unique needs of our customers and designs features that are not commonly available in the A/V marketplace," Mr. Haghjoo concluded.

The SC-VGA-2B has a retail price of $385 and is available to purchase immediately through Hall Research by calling (714) 641-6607, or through any of its authorized dealers around the world.
