Three new products from Vanco International’s Vanco and Pulse Audio brands offer distributors and dealers 4K HDMI extender and clock re-synthesizer/conditioner solutions, as well as a new extender option for digital-analog installations.
The HD4KEX30 is the latest to join Vanco’s line of 4K extenders. With the ability to pass High Dynamic Range (HDR), the HD4KEX30 allows Ultra High Definition HDMI signals and controls to be transmitted using a single Cat-5e or Cat-6 cable and support 4K@60Hz up to 98ft/30m, and 4K@30Hz and 1080p@60Hz up to 164ft/50m. The HD4KEX30 also features auto EDID/EQ management, IR callback from display to source, as well as audio support for: LPCM 7.1, Dolby® TrueHD, Dolby Digital® Plus, and DTS-HD Master Audio.
Also for 4K HDMI installations, Vanco’s HD4KCLK is designed to solve issues with 4K compatibility due to clock stretching or timing, as well as multiple layer cascading. It receives HDMI signals and resynchronizes, conditions, and equalizes them with state of the art jitter cleaning technology, resulting in improvement of the transmission distance and signal integrity. Amplifying and extending the HDMI signal over long cable distances, the HD4KCLK supports resolutions up to 4K@60Hz, 4:4:4 Chroma with HDR10/Dolby Vision, is 2.0a/HDCP 2.2 compliant, and integrates with other HDMI over UTP products. A cost-effective way to overcome high bandwidth HDMI issues, the HD4KCLK saves installers time that is often lost troubleshooting and mediates the need to replace equipment.
The PA-EXTDA digital-analog audio extender allows audio to be extended over a single Cat-5e/6 cable and transmit analog signals via a 3.5mm connection up to 557ft/170m, or digital signals via a Toslink or Coax connection up to 951ft/290m. Selecting the audio source is quick and easy with the use of a toggle switch. The Toslink, Coax, and RCA audio outputs are all synchronized and can be used simultaneously to provide digital and analog audio to three different devices at the same time without any lag between audio formats. The PA-EXTDA supports PCM, DTS, and Dolby audio formats and the included POC technology allows the transmitter to be powered up by the receiving unit for quick and easy installation.
The HD4KEX30, PA-EXTDA, and HD4KCLK are all available now.
