Extron releases HDMI cable equaliser for 4K
Extron Electronics has unveiled the HD 4K 101 Plus, a HDMI cable equaliser capable of supporting resolutions up to 4K/60 with 4:4:4 chroma sampling.
Deployed at the destination end of a long cable run, the HD 4K 101 Plus actively equalises poor or marginal source signals, reduces jitter and skew, and adds output pre-emphasis to extend the HDMI signal.
The HDCP 2.2-compliant equalizer supports HDMI 2.0b specification features, including data rates up to 18 Gbps, HDR, Deep Colour up to 12-bit, 3D, HD lossless audio formats, and CEC. The 1/8 rack wide unit can be powered by the connected HDMI source or an optional external power supply to streamline integration.
The HD 4K 101 Plus can used for extending 4K video signals between the source and the display, such as the Extron HD 4K 110 series. DDC channels are actively buffered, allowing pass-through of EDID and HDCP information between source and display. EDID pass-through ensures that the source video is at the optimal resolution for the display, and HDCP 2.2 compliance enables extension of encrypted content from Blu-ray players, satellite and cable TV tuners, DVRs, laptop computers, and other HDCP-enabled sources.
