New Milford, CT, April 7, 2009 – Magenta Research, a recognized leader in video, audio and control signal distribution and switching over structured cabling, announces the immediate availability of HD-One, an HDMI video and audio extension product that utilizes a single Cat6 cable.
HD-One is fully HDCP-compliant and capable of extending uncompressed 1080p video with audio to 150ft/46m or 1080i/720p video with audio to 200ft/61m. A plug and play device, requiring no adjustments or tuning, HD-One utilizes only a single power supply on the transmitter end, eliminating the need for an extra power outlet and cabling at the receiver end. For added installation convenience, mounting tabs are built into both the HD-One transmitter and receiver.
“Magenta is very excited to offer an HDMI extension kit that, unlike many other solutions, eliminates the need for a second UTP cable,” stated Magenta Research’s Chief Scientist Chris Miller. “HD-One is a perfect solution for remotely locating an HDMI source, whether in a home or for a residential home theater or in commercial digital signage applications.”
HD-One is sold as a kit, containing (1) transmitter, (1) receiver and (1) 12V universal power supply. HD-One can also be used for extending DVI video when used with optional HDMI to DVI adapter cables.
Additional HDMI over UTP distribution solutions, also utilizing a single cable, will be announced and released soon.
