Gefen Introduces HDMI over Coax

Gefen announced a method of extending HDTV over coax cable for high-definition video and multi-channel digital audio delivered through HDMI connectors. The plug and play HDMI over Coax cable solution allows any A/V source with HDMI connectors to be extended up to 300 feet from the display or projector using a single coax cable.

In addition, Gefen said its Wireless for HDMI extension solution delivers the same high quality HDTV extension using ultra wideband (UWB) wireless technology for in-room connections of high-definition video sources to HDTVs.

Both solutions utilize Tzero Technologies' UWB silicon combined with Analog Devices JPEG 2000 video processing and Gefen's HDMI expertise in delivering pure digital video with resolutions up to 1080p with digital audio.

Each extension system operates through compact transmitter and receiver units that offer HDMI audio and video extension with full HDCP-compliance, CEC control and additional IR remote pass through.
