AudioControl has launched a new range of signal extenders that will allow for the extension of HDMI audio and video signals via standard CAT-5e/CAT-6 cabling. Based on industry leading HDBaseT™ technolgy, AudioControl’s new HDBaseT extender package consists of the HDBT-S1™ sender and the HDBT-R1™ receiver, which are sold together as a system or independently for custom applications.

Traditional HDMI cabling is generally used for runs of 50’ or less due to the quantity of bandwidth and speed needed for hi-resolution audio and video signals. The AudioControl HDBT-SR1 allows signals to be extended up to 210 feet (70 m) over a single CAT-5e/CAT6 cable making these ideal solutions for systems requiring remote mounting of displaces and/or souirce units.

Additionally the HDBT-SR1 is designed for todays 3D and 4K signals. AudioControl is also the first US based company to offer an optional HDBaseT port factory-upgrade for its highly acclaimed Maestro M8 Surround Sound Processor. The AudioControl Maestro M8 incorporates an expansion port that allows the HDBT-S1 or HDBT-R1 to be optionally factory-installed thereby allowing the system designer or custom integrator the choice on whether to include HDBaseT connectivity, based on the individual custom requirements of the project.

Quantum Data™ 100% Certified For Zero Signal Errors Given the complex nature of today’s audio/video systems, AudioControl’s signal extenders and Home Theater products are put through a demanding set of individual tests utilizing test protocols and stringent bit rate using the latest in 4K testing apparatus from Quantum Data™. This ensures that every product that leaves the AudioControl factory in Seattle has a certificate showing full pass rate testing ensuring the highest standards of reliability and pass-rate quality and performance.
