The Crestron HDMI over HDBaseT Extender (HD-EXT4-C) delivers professional-grade digital HD AV signal extension for use in the home, classroom, auditorium, or corporate boardroom.
The Crestron® 4K HDMI® over HDBaseT® Extender (HD-EXT4-C) delivers professional-grade digital HD AV signal extension for use in the home, classroom, auditorium, or corporate boardroom. Without any special setup or configuration, the HD-EXT4-C enables the transmission of high-definition digital video and audio over wire runs up to 330 feet (100 meters) using a single, low-cost CAT5e cable. 4K video is supported over slightly shorter distances. For applications that include an analog audio signal, the HD-EXT4-C can also handle stereo line-level audio over a second cable.[1,2]
The HD-EXT4-C is composed of one HD-TX4-C transmitter and one HD-RX4-C receiver. These components are only sold as part of the HD-EXT4-C package. For applications requiring direct interface to an HDBaseT source or display device, please refer to the HD-TX3-C and HD-RX3-C.
Robust Ultra HD Signal Extension
Using HDBaseT technology, the HD-EXT4-C allows for the extension of uncompressed HDMI signals using inexpensive twisted pair cable. Without relying on signal-degrading compression or IP streaming, or inferior HDMI signal boosting, HDBaseT reliably transports the full resolution signal from source to display — intact and uncompromised.
The HD-EXT4-C handles video resolutions beyond HD including 4K Ultra HD and 4K DCI. Full HD 1080p60 with 3D and Deep Color is supported over any distance up to 330 ft (100 m), while 4K is limited to 230 ft (70 m) or less. Audio capabilities include support for high-bitrate 7.1 audio formats like Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™ as well as uncompressed linear PCM. In addition to HDMI, it is also compatible with DVI and DisplayPort Multimode sources, and DVI display devices, using appropriate adapters or interface cables.
Legacy Audio Device Support
In addition to carrying digital video and audio, the HD-EXT4-C also provides for the extension of an analog audio signal to support DVI devices (and certain HDMI devices) that may not include or support an embedded digital audio channel. Enabling the extension of analog audio simply requires an additional twisted-pair type cable.
Uncompromised and Uncomplicated
Crestron HDMI over HDBaseT products afford a very dependable signal extension solution that’s simple to implement. No special configuration or programming is required — just connect your source and display and enjoy high-quality HD video and audio from across the room — or the other end of the house.
The HD-EXT4-C is composed of one transmitter and one receiver (HD-TX4-C and HD-RX4-C, both included). The transmitter can be mounted in a single-gang wall box, or attached to any flat surface or inside an equipment rack. The compact receiver can be mounted discretely behind a display device or wherever else it needs to go. Linking the two components requires just one or two runs of CAT5e or Crestron DM 8G® cable[1,2]. Crestron offers the cable, connectors, and crimp tool for a complete, easy and reliable wiring solution. A range of professional AV interface cables and wall plates is also available to complement the HD-EXT4-C for a total custom installation solution.
