Kramer ships HDBaseT range extenders
Kramer Electronics is shipping its new line of HDBaseT range extenders that are compatible with the Panasonic Digital Link line of projectors. The range extenders with HDBaseT capability, send the HDMI signal along with the Ethernet 100BaseT, RS-232 and IR input signals as an integrated HDBaseT signal over a distance of 100m.
Panasonic has recently introduced a new range of projectors supporting HDBaseT technology, which connects all entertainment devices through a single LAN cable. Therefore, the aim of the Digital Link line is to provide projection solutions where a distance connection is required. The new line of projectors supports delivery of uncompressed HD, audio and control commands up to 100m via a single Cat-5e/6 LAN cable and is compatible with Kramer’s HDBaseT products.
The family of TP-58x transmitters sends the HDMI input signal, along with the Ethernet 100BaseT, RS-232 and IR input signals as an integrated HDBaseT signal to a distance of 130m using Kramer’s BC−DGKat623 cables. The TP-58x receiver family converts the twisted pair signal back to Ethernet 100BaseT, RS-232, IR and HDMI outputs, and de-embeds the audio to S/PDIF and TOSLINK audio outputs.
