Extron eLink 100 wireless HDMI extender now shipping

Extron has launched the eLink 100, an HDCP-compliant wireless transmitter and receiver set for extension of HDMI video and multi-channel audio signals up to 100 feet (30 metres).

Capable of supporting computer video with resolutions up to 1920x1080, including HDTV 1080p/60, the eLink 100 extender can wirelessly transmit HDMI video with embedded audio in a variety of professional AV environments, including historic buildings, houses of worship and other locations where running a cable is a challenge.

Features such as use of the 5 GHz spectrum, AES-128 encryption, and commercial-grade components ensure continuous, secure operation with real-time performance.

To avoid interference from the facility’s WLAN, smartphones, tablets, additional eLink 100 extenders, or other wireless devices, Automatic Frequency Selection – AFS, including Dynamic Frequency Selection – DFS, actively monitors the RF spectrum to identify and select an available channel.

For connection stability within environments with multipath signals, the extender uses multi-input and multi-output - MIMO communication technology.

Extron eLink technology ensures operation of up to four eLink extender sets in the presence of the facility’s other wireless systems. Also, one transmitter can support multiple receivers, allowing an AV signal to be distributed to as many as four displays without disrupting other wireless devices.

The eLink 100 T transmitter and eLink 100 R receiver may be concealed or mounted in separate areas to maintain the aesthetics of the facility.
