Hall Research introduces HDMI and USB wall plate extender
Hall Research has combined a single-gang wall plate with a transmitter and receiver in the form of its EX-4KU.
It extends 4K HDMI video and USB data over a single UTP cable and incorporates HDBaseT 2.0 technology to extend video and USB without latency or compression.
The wall plate transmitter provides an HDMI input and a USB port for connection to a host such as a PC or a Mac. The HDMI input supports all PC and HDTV resolutions up to and including 4K UHD. The wall plate provides two USB charging ports. The extender supports all USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 devices such as keyboards, mice, touchscreens, interactive whiteboards, and USB cameras.
A single CAT6 cable connects the transmitter to the receiver and the system supports distances of up to 40m for 4K video or 70m for 1080p video. Full duplex RS-232 is also extended and can be used if serial control is needed. Power is sent from the receiver to the wall plate through the same CAT6 cable.
The EX-4KU HDBaseT wall plate extender is suited to commercial AV and educational installations. No programming is required.
