Gefen Extends HDMI to 100m over Cat-5

Gefen introduced an extra long-range extension of HDMI devices. The GefenPRO ELR Extender for HDMI with PoL offers a long-range, multi-signal method of extension up to 330-feet (100m) over just a single CAT-5 cable. HDMI video at 1080p full HD resolutions, 3DTV support, audio, IR remote, RS-232 control, Ethernet and power are all delivered over the same CAT-5 cable. Previous solutions required two cables to reach shorter distances.



Gefen said its PoL technology is based on the Power over Ethernet standard. This enables the delivery of power to the receiver unit, giving an added advantage to the integrator. Power is provided to the receiver using the AC power connected at the sender unit. Each receiver unit is also equipped with an additional 5v output to power a supplemental product, such as a scaler, switcher or splitter at the display location.
