The HD-One DX500 supports the extension of 1920x1200 and 1080p HDMI video plus embedded audio, while the HD-One LX500 adds support for two-way RS-232 and IR signals (36.7, 38.0 or 58.8 kHz, user selectable). Both units are sold in a kit form that includes a transmitter, receiver and power supplies. The HD-One LX500 kit also includes a pair of IR dongles to ensure speedy installation.

“Magenta is all about removing common integration limitations, while offering multiple options within every product line,” said Magenta product manager, Len Pond. “The dramatically improved distance reach of the HD-One 500 Series frees users from many common constraints prevalent in the marketplace.”

Exceeding the 100 meter hurdle of typical digital extenders allows integrators, consultants and installers to ensure that screens are placed exactly where an application needs them to be, while avoiding any reliance on splitters or boosters that can compromise signal quality.

HD-One 500 Series products will be available from Magenta in December.
