10.2Gbs HDMI + Data Over Single CAT6
Utilizing HDBaseT™ Technology

Using cutting edge HDBaseT™ technology, the PLX-HDB.4 Extends HDMI®, Ethernet, IR & RS-232 up to 10.2Gbps and over a distance of up to 100m / 328′ using a single CAT6 cable. Unlike conventional single cable extenders, there is no compression, while the maximum bandwidth of 10.2Gbps supports all video and audio modes in the current HDMI® specification.

In addition to HDMI®, the PLX-HDB.4 extends 100Base-T Ethernet, with a 3-port switch on both send and receiver units. Facilities to extend IR and RS-232 signals is also included.

The PLX-HDB.4 was designed with the custom installer in mind. It features Power Over Ethernet (POE), allowing the receiver unit to be powered from the transmitter unit. Convenient mounting tabs allow for vertical installation, while clearly labelled connections are located at the rear of the units. A simplified front display gives feedback on all essential connection information.

  • Supports 3+3 port (transmit and receive ends) 100Base-T Ethernet
  • Supports IR & RS-232
  • Power at source (transmit) end. Uses Power Over Ethernet (POE) to power receiver unit
  • Robust casing can be mounted vertically
  • HDCP compliant
  • 12 months warranty

HDBaseT™ Extender RX/TX Pair + 24V DC PLX-HDB.4

HDMI Over Dual CAT6
1080p up to 50m / 164′

The PLX-HD50 is supplied as a send (TX) and receive (RX) pair, complete with 5V DC power supply which connects to the sink/display side unit. Resolution support up to 30m / 98′ for full 1080p over CAT5E UTP, or up to 60m / 196′ for 720p/1080i. The use of CAT6 UTP can extend performance to a huge 50m / 164′ with full 1080p 24/50/60Hz, depending on source and display capabilities and nativity of 1080p source (ie distance from upscaled sources may vary).

  • Extends uncompressed HDMI signal over two CAT5e/6 cables
  • Transmission range up to 60m / 196′ at 1080i, 50m / 164′ at 1080p resolution
  • Compact, robust casing can be mounted vertically or horizontally
  • HDCP compliant
  • CEC & E-EDID control
  • Advanced HDMI featureset including support for 3D passthrough, Deep Color, x.v.Color, 1080p and HD Audio formats
  • 12 months warranty

NOTE: DO NOT use shielded (STP) CAT cable, otherwise there can be a significant drop in performance. We recommend pre-terminated CAT6 (UTP) cables for optimal results
