Smart-e intros 4K HDBaseT splitter
Smart-e has introduced the 4K-TX940, an HDCP 2.2 4K HDBaseT splitter with four HDBaseT ports to send 4K video to up to four displays using 4K-RX940 HDBaseT receivers.
A looping HDMI input on the rear panel allows for cascading of multiple 4K-TX940 units, increasing the number of possible displays.
The input device is connected via HDMI to the rear of the 4K-TX940, the signal is split internally and then fed to four separate HDBaseT outputs. These outputs can then be connected across Cat6 cables to the receivers, or alternatively directly connected to the displays if they have an HDBaseT input.
When connected to a receiver the 4K-TX940 can transmit HDMI signals 100m in up to 4K UHD resolution. Each HDBaseT connection also allows for Infrared signals to be received back from the receiver for remote control of the source device.
Power is provided from the 4K-TX940 through the same Cat6 cable, a secure lockable DC connector on the splitter provides the required power connection. The 4K-TX940 has enhanced EDID management, allowing customers to set their preferred output resolution.
The 4K-TX940 is suited to a number of verticals in the AV market including education and corporate.
