Lumens Extends PTZ Camera Control Via HDBaseT Extension Kit

The Lumens VC-HDTX and VC-HDRX HDBaseT extension kits can send uncompressed video over a CAT 5e/6/7 cable at a distance up to 328 feet with control through the built-in IR and RS-232 connection.

Lumens said the kit supports superior video quality up to 1080p and 4K resolution. The transmitter (camera end) and Lumens VC camera can be powered by the PoE+ (48V) function of the receiver (controller end), allowing for greater flexibility in installations.

The kit supports PoE+, uncompressed video and IR/RS-232 control over a single CAT 5e/6/7 cable with HDMI video up to 1080p and 4K resolution. It is compatible with Lumens VC cameras and wall mount (VC-AC08).
