IOGEAR INTRODUCES NEW HDBaseT EXTENDER TO DISTRIBUTE HDMI SIGNALS UP TO 228FT [02-22-2016]


FOOTHILL RANCH, CA – February 22, 2016 – IOGEAR has introduced the HDBaseT HDMI Extender as the ideal low-cost and reliable solution for distributing HDMI over long distances that standard cables are unable to address. As the A/V industry adopts 4K (UHD) as the new high-resolution standard; long range video distribution can be a challenge with standard HDMI cables that experience signal degradation at 25 feet. IOGEAR's HDBaseT HDMI Extender addresses the degradation by using a single, solid Cat6a cable to transmit HDMI audio and video signals up to 228ft at 1080p resolutions.

The IOGEAR GVE330 uses HDBaseT technology for residential or commercial applications to extend connectivity beyond the limited range of HDMI cables.

HDBaseT is a consumer electronic and connectivity standard that's revolutionizing HDMI distribution. HDBaseT uses an advanced method of modulation that enables the transmission of uncompressed multimedia content at resolutions up to 4K (UHD). The HDBaseT architecture allows for a full bandwidth of 10.2Gbps data throughput over a single Cat 5e/Cat6/Cat6a cable and supports all High Speed HDMI functions including high-definition video, audio, power, 100BaseT Ethernet, USB, and certain control signals such as CEC, RS-232 or IR. 4K (UHD) resolutions are now able to be transferred up to 130ft.

"The new HDBaseT Extender is the best option for those needing a high bandwidth solution to transfer HDMI signals over long distances," said Jack Wang, IOGEAR CEO. "The HDBaseT HDMI Extender is one of the first low-cost HDMI extenders that provide a reliable and durable solution for a multitude of applications."

IOGEAR's HDBaseT HDMI Extender is an ideal solution for digital signage applications and for routing uncompressed 4K (UHD) HDMI A/V signals over inexpensive Ethernet cable at home for digital entertainment centers or in boardrooms, conference rooms, classrooms, and sports bars that require HDMI video to be extended for greater distances. The extender also has applications for home installation, retro-fitting, retail environments, show rooms and worship centers where remote displays are required.
