Hall Research has introduced the UH2X-P1 extender utilizing the new HDBaseT 2.0 standard to extend uncompressed HDMI, USB 2.0, Ethernet, RS232, IR, and PoE over a single CAT5e/6 cable. The extender kit consists of a compact transmitter and a corresponding Receiver. Fully compliant with HDBaseT specifications, the devices are designed to work with all other certified HDBaseT 1.0 and 2.0 products. For example, the UH2X-P1 transmitter can be connected to displays with native HDBaseT inputs such as Panasonic's Digital Link equipped projectors.
The plug-n-play extender supports all PC and HDTV resolutions including 4K (UHD) and can extend video along with IR, RS232, USB, and IP using a single run of CAT5e/6 cable up to 100m (330 ft). The PoH/PoE compliant extender includes a power supply that plugs to the transmitter end. The receiver gets its power through the Cat6 cable per IEEE802.3af standard as required by HDBaseT Alliance. The receiver includes an integrated 2-port USB 2.0 Hub, making it perfect for remote KVM applications. The USB extension is transparent to the PC Host and requires no drivers or software.
In addition, the UH2X-P1 features audio return from receiver to the sender. The source for the independent audio return path is user selectable. It can be either from the ARC pin of the HDMI output connector (ARC signal from the connected TV), or from a separate SPDIF audio input connector available on the Receiver.
The extenders are housed in low profile and sturdy metal enclosures and feature brackets for easy mounting on walls or under desk surfaces. The UH2X-P1 is economically priced, carries a 3 year warranty and is available for immediate shipment from stock.
