AV distribution innovator Blustream is shipping its new uncompressed, unconverted 18Gbps HDMI over HDBaseT extender set. Using the latest HDBaseT technology, the gear enables distribution of bit-for-bit 4K HDMI video and audio up to 328 feet over a single Cat6A cable.
“The zero-compression HEX18G-KIT is designed for applications that demand the absolute highest video quality, from the luxury home theater to the executive boardroom,” said Martyn Shirley, Blustream GM. “By delivering full 18Gbps HDMI 2.0 video and audio over a single Cat6a cable, the HEX18G-IT offers true uncompressed and unconverted performance.”
The gear supports the HDMI 2.0 18Gbps specification, including 4K 60Hz 4:4:4 UHD video, and HDCP 2.3/2.2. The HEX18G-TX transmitter and HEX18G-RX receiver support uncompressed distribution of the latest HDR resolutions — including HDR10/10+ and Dolby Vision. HDMI re-clocking on the HDBaseT receiver helps to resolve HDMI HDCP, compatibility, and handshaking issues.
The extender set supports all known HDMI audio formats — including Dolby Atmos, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS-HD Master Audio transmission — in addition to bi-directional IR, RS-232, and power over cable (PoC).
