(Virtual Press Office) -- Booth 746 – Worship facilities now have some low cost options when wiring for high definition audio/video. Two new Gefen extenders offer a lower price point, 3DTV pass-through support in the HDMI format and the use of standard CAT-5 cable for signal extension. Both use HDBaseT to reach up to 230 feet (70m) using just one CAT-5 cable to deliver 1080p full HD with multi-channel audio.
The GefenTV Extender for HDMI CAT-5 supplies portable, desktop sender and receiver units that connect any HDMI source to its display located up to 230 feet away. One CAT-5 cable connects the sender to the receiver, which can both be surface mounted with plates for stability. Locking power supplies guarantee a steady and stable connection.
The Gefen ToolBox Extender for HDMI CAT5 POL (Power Over Line) comes with wall-mountable sender and receiver units that link any HDMI source to its display up to 230 feet in distance. One CAT-5 cable links the source to the display. Gefen POL technology eliminates the need to power the receiver at the display side, sending power over the same CAT-5 cable that carries HDMI from the powered sender unit to the receiver.
"We designed these new extenders to offer a low-cost, high quality method of signal extension that can satisfy basic installation requirements and still retain some advanced features," said Hagai Gefen, president and CEO, Gefen. "The GefenTV Extender for HDMI CAT-5 has an MSRP of $499, while the Gefen ToolBox Extender for HDMI CAT-5 POL is $399—both significantly reduced to offer viable alternatives to more elaborate extension solutions."
