Magenta Introduces Long Range HDMI Extenders at InfoComm

Publish date:

The What: Magenta Research has introduced its HD-One DX 500 and HD-One LX 500 HDMI extenders, which deliver replicated digital signals to a distance of 500 feet (152 meters) over a single Cat6 cable.

 The What Else: The HD-One DX 500 supports the extension of 1920x1200 and 1080p HDMI video plus embedded audio, while the HD-One LX 500 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 LX 500 kit also includes a pair of IR dongles designed to ensure speedy installation.

In addition to their extended reach, HD-One 500 products are engineered to use less power, dissipate less heat, and offer better emission and susceptibility performance than HD-BaseT products.

The Bottom Line: 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-One500 Series products are currently available.
