Gefen from Core Brands has addressed a significant audio/visual signal processing issue among commercial integrators with the introduction of two new 4K Ultra HD Extenders. The GTB-UHD600-HBT and GTB-UHD600-HBTL extend the full bandwidth of HDMI 2.0 over the most widely used extension medium – UTP/STP cabling.
Core Brands’ Gefen product manager Jason Fitzgerald says that their latest products are true standouts against other competitors.
“Gefen’s new 4K Ultra HD extenders truly stand out among a sea of competitors in the extension market,” says Jason.
“These new products address one of the most glaring holes in today’s industry, which is the extension of full bandwidth HDMI 2.0 over the most widely used extension medium: UTP/STP cabling. With the introduction of these two solutions, Gefen is making the impossible possible.”
Both the GTB-UHD600-HBT and GTB-UHD600-HBTL use compression technology to extend an HDMI 2.0 signal resolution up to 4096×2160 at 60Hz and 4:4:4 Chroma subsampling.
Important features of the HDMI 2.0, such as HDR, also go along the single Cat-5 or Cat-6 cable that links the sender and receiver units. Both GTB units are capable of 2-way IR and RS-232 along with bi-directional POL (power to link). This gives seamless integration of control signals and the ability to control how each unit is powered – easy integration allows for the utmost ease of management across both units.
The GTB-UHD600-HBT is capable of 4K Ultra HD extension of up to 80 metres (100 metres at 1080p) and the GTB-UHD600-HBTL is capable of 40 meters at 4K Ultra HD (70 metres at 1080p).
