New digital extender from Smart-e

The SDS-901 extends the transmission of HDMI signals from devices such as Blu-ray, Sky STB, media players, laptops and PCs over a single CAT 5-8 cable (up to 100 metres).

The SDS has an extra audio channel separate from the embedded HDMI audio, providing the facility to transmit an additional analogue stereo or S/P DIF signal to cover all the ‘audio configurations’. 

Using HDBaseT with HDv1.4 features, the SDS-901 supports HDMI, DVI and Display Port Multimode signals, and is HDCP compliant featuring Deep Colour, 3D, 4k and 2k resolutions, and full 1080p. Transparent DDC connectivity provides HDCP compliance. In-line power is standard allowing the transmitter or receiver unit to be powered through the cable. Control through the same cable can be used for IR and RS232 passthrough.

A secure DC connection prevents accidental removal of the power supply, and each unit comes complete with slots for secure fixing, alternatively four units can be mounted side-by-side in a 1U 19” Smart-e rack mount. 

To assist with the installation process and technical queries, Smart-e is also providing dedicated SDS product training sessions for installers. All Smart-e equipment comes with a 3 year warranty and a high level of technical support.
