4K HDBaseT HDMI Tx/Rx Kit over CAT, Built-in Switch - 230'
The STDHVHDBT from StarTech is a 4K multi-input video extender kit that uses HDBaseT technology to extend video signals up to 230' over a single CAT5e/6 cable. This quality device from StarTech also features a built-in video switcher that allows the user to choose which video sources is displayed from up to 4 independent video sources. Providing a truly seamless multi-interface being a switch and extender in one, the built-in converter switch can switch connect between 2 HDMI sources, 1 VGA, and 1 displayport without the need for additional adapters or devices. The video extender will support Ultra HD 4K and Full HD 1080p video resolutions with support for the accompanying digital 7.1 audio.
Making this a perfect all in one device for use to create brilliant digital signage in large commercial settings such as hospitals, shopping centers or stadiums. Equally this device can be used as a classroom or boardroom display, to enable presenters the ability to connect a wide range of devices. The switcher side of this device allows the user to automatically switch between your set-top box or computer, for remote entertainment displays in restaurant/bar type settings, as the switching modes have the ability to auto switch from a potential "failed" source with a secondary input to keep your digital signage from going down.
This extender kit from StarTech ensures a hassle-free operation by using two different auto switching modes: auto-detect switching will detect and select the newly connected device, or priority switching which allows the user to choose which port is to be activated by default for automatic switching. With HDBaseT functionality you can connect a remote digital signage display with one kit to reduce future failure points.
The extender side of this device allows for video signals to be transmitted up to 230' using a single cable, as opposed to traditional systems that can sometimes require to cables that only offer minimal audio support. Using the very affordable CAT cable makes for a more efficient and cost effective system integration. By using the standard CAT cable the HDBaseT extender will work with existing Ethernet infrastructure that may already be deployed in your current situation, making this a very flexible and functional addition to your Pro A/V setup. Another benefit of using a system that works off of HDBaseT is that it allows your vibrant 4K video resolutions to travel further distances (up to 130') as compared to typical HDMI cables which see signal degradation at about 30'. If 4K is not a need at greater distances, this system also has the ability to support High-Definition 1080p and lower resolutions at even greater distances of up to 230' from your source, truly extending the functionality and adding more options for your digital signage type applications.
This extender kit with built-in switcher from StarTech requires no additional software or drivers and offers a true plug-and-play installation. Supported Audio formats include Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA Audio and is backed by a 2 year warranty from StarTech.
