New digital extender from Smart-e now shipping
Smart-e Limited has begun shipping its new point-to-point digital extender, the SDS-901 featuring an extra audio channel.
The first of a range of Smart Digital Solutions (SDS) to be launched by the company over the coming months, the SDS-901 extends the transmission of HDMI signals over a single Cat 5-8 cable (up to 100m). The SDS has an extra audio channel separate from the embedded HDMI audio, providing the facility to transmit an additional analogue stereo or S/P DIF signal to cover all the ‘audio configurations’.
HDBaseT with HDv1.4 features, the SDS-901 supports HDMI, DVI and Display Port Multimode signals, and is HDCP compliant featuring Deep Colour, 3D, 4k and 2k resolutions, and full 1080p. Transparent DDC connectivity provides HDCP compliance. In-line power is standard allowing the transmitter or receiver unit to be powered through the cable. Control through the same cable can be used for IR and RS-232 passthrough.
A DC connection prevents accidental removal of the power supply, and each unit comes complete with slots for secure fixing, alternatively four units can be mounted side-by-side in a 1U 19-inch Smart-e rack mount.
Smart-e is also providing dedicated SDS product training sessions for installers.
