Vanco International, the AV distribution and electronic accessory products company, has added two new HDBaseT 4K HDR extenders: the Evolution EVEX4K50, and Vanco HDBT4K50. Modeled after the Evolution EVEXHDB2 extender, the EVEX4K50 and HDBT4K50 are designed as a cost-effective way for distributors and dealers to extend full 4K and HDR in both residential and commercial installations.
“Following the tremendous success of the EVEXHDB2, our distributors and dealers requested that we expand our line of HDR extenders,” said Mark Corbin, Vanco International’s vice president of distribution markets. “The HDBT4K50 and EVEX4K50 provide installers with all of the important features and connection options that they need for a variety of applications and at lower price points. We now have an extender solution for every installation type and budget.”
Featuring a slim and compact design, the HDBT4K50 and EVEX4K50 can fit into even the tightest installations and are equipped with the latest HDBaseT technology. Compared to standard HDMI cables, the HDBT4K50 and EVEX4K50 are able to distribute high-definition signals across much greater distances. The transmission range of both products extends 4Kx2K@60Hz, 4:4:4 with HDR up to 164ft/50m over a single Cat-5e/6 cable and 1080p@60Hz up to 230ft/70m.
The HDBT4K50 and EVEX4K50 are HDCP 2.2 compliant and backwards compatible to previous versions. Each extender ships with a single DC 12V, 2A power supply used for use with either the transmitter or receiver. Thanks to Power over Cable technology, (PoC), the EVEX4K50 and HDBT4K50 are able to transmit power over Cat-5e or Cat-6, eliminating the need for a second power supply. To ensure a smooth plug-and-play installation, Auto EDID and EQ management is also included.
Both extenders also offer CEC support and bi-directional IR control for instantaneous response time. For installations that demand a hardwired connection, the EVEX4K50 adds RS232 control and ships with two RS232 cables.
Pre-orders for the EVEX4K50 and HDBT4K50 are available immediately and both products will begin shipping this month. Interested distributors can contact Vanco International directly for pricing.
