Press release follows:
CHATSWORTH, CA – The Gefen HDMI over RGB Extender allows high definition video and audio in the expanded HDMI v1.3 format to travel over legacy RGBHV cable. Effective at distances up to 330 feet (100m), the Gefen HDMI over RGB Extender allows displays and projectors to be placed in optimum locations while the A/V source is located in a secure, rack mounted enclosure.
It is ideal for integrators wanting to upgrade the A/V source and HDTV display or projector without removing the existing cable infrastructure used to deliver legacy component or composite video.
High definition visuals at 1080p full HD are delivered over RGBHV cable along with 7.1 digital surround sound audio. All expanded HDMI v1.3 features are supported, including deep color, lip sync, Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio formats.
HDMI, HDCP and CEC pass-through compliance make the HDMI over RGB Extender a reliable performer for those upgrading to full digital connectivity, even while using a legacy cable infrastructure.
The HDMI over RGB Extender uses sender and receiver units that connect to the source and the extended display using a standard HDMI cable. 5BNC coaxial cables link the sender to the receiver at the remote location. An optional IR back channel allows the source to be controlled from the extended destination.
The Gefen HDMI over RGB Extender works with all HDMI sources and displays, including Blu-ray players, set-top boxes and gaming consoles. It comes with Gefen's standard two-year warranty.
