Transformative Engineering Debuts HXU-1 Xtreme HDMI Extender

TE-HXU-1.jpgFor those who need to run HDMI, USB, analog audio, RS-232, and/or IR signals over very long distances, the new HXU-1 Xtreme HDMI extender from Transformative Engineering can send these signals up to 600 feet over CAT5e/6. The system supports up to 1080p HD video. The HXU-1 transmitter and receiver cost $499 apiece.

From Transformative Engineering
Transformative Engineering has introduced its remarkable HXU-1 Xtreme HDMI extender that provides point-to-point ranges up to 600 feet and offers unique, cost-effective AV switching solutions without the costly structural limitations of a fixed matrix switch.

The HXU-1 is designed to simultaneously extend and distribute HDMI, USB, analog audio, RS-232, and IR signals over CAT5e/6 and supports 1080p HD video and up to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) resolution. This use of a single 'category cable' is much more cost effective than using multiple pre-made cables, which are expensive, distance-limited, and difficult to install. The HXU-1 transmitter and receiver units can be connected together for a long-range Point-to-Point connection via CAT5e/6 cable. They can also function as Point-to-Multi-Point or Multi-Point-to-Multi-Point solutions by connecting to a gigabit fast network switch with IGMP snooping and 8K Jumbo Frame support.

The Transformative Engineering HXU-1 Xtreme Extender is now available from TE reps and distributors, or directly from the company. The HXU-1 TX transmitters and HXU-1 RX receivers are sold individually (to create an a la carte HDMI Matrix) and have a suggested retail price of $499 each.
