The Gefen EXT-UHDV-WP-HBTLS-TX is a high-performance solution in standard US electrical wall-plate form factor for switching 4K Ultra HD HDMI and VGA inputs, and extending them up to 70 meters (230 feet) at 1080p and 40 meters (130 feet) at 4K, over a single CAT-5e cable. Switching between the HDMI and VGA can be set to Automatic or be done manually via the front panel button or RS-232. It supports 10.2 Gbps of data throughput and 300 MHz TMDS Clock frequency, accepting HDMI 2.0 signals up to 4K 60 Hz 4:2:0 or 4K 30 Hz 4:4:4. This extender uses Gefen’s implementation of the HDBaseT™ technology with enhancements such as Advanced EDID Management. The HDMI input accommodates resolutions up to 4K Cinema-DCI (4096 x 2160 to 30 Hz 4:4:4) and 4K Ultra HD (3860 x 2160 to 60 Hz, 4:2:0, or 30 Hz 4:4:4), with HDCP 1.4. Highest performance multichannel digital audio including 7.1 channels of LPCM and HBR (High Bit Rate) digital audio formats, such as Dolby Atmos®, Dolby® TrueHD, DTS:X™, and DTS-HD Master Audio™ are passed through to the HDMI output. The VGA input features a companion L/R analog audio input, and accepts VESA and CEA resolutions up to WUXGA (1920 x 1200 to 60 Hz, 4:4:4) and 1080p Full HD (1920 x 1080 at 60 Hz, 4:4:4). A powerful built-in scaler can upscale lower resolution VGA signals with legacy aspect ratio to widescreen WUXGA, ensuring stunning presentations and smooth switching transitions between the HDMI and the VGA sources. The EXT-UHDV-WP-HBTLS-TX extends RS-232 when used with a compatible Receiver unit such as the Gefen EXT-UHDA-HBTL-RX, facilitating the control of A/V sources placed near the Sender from the viewing location, and sending automation commands to the display or another device placed near the Receiver unit. It also accepts RS-232 commands for switching, scaler controls, and EDID management from a third-party controller placed near the Sender or remotely by the Receiver. HDBaseT™ standard POH (Power Over HDBaseT™) technology powers the Sender remotely from the Receiver unit, using the same cable that extends the HDMI signal. This feature simplifies installation in many cases where supplying power directly to the wall-plate is not practical. Alternatively, if powering the wall-plate Sender from the Receiver unit is not feasible, a separately available power supply can be hard-wired to a detachable “captive-screw” Phoenix connector on the back of the wall-plate. The Sender uses the North American standard 2-gang wall-plate form factor and can work with most “open-back” low-voltage installation brackets and table boxes. It is compatible with most standard North American Decora® wall-plates (a white-colored wall-plate is included). It also accommodates Gefen locking HDMI cables for secure and reliable connections.
