Extend a 4K HDMI AV signal up to 328ftHDBaseT™ technology was designed to offer an industry standard connectivity solution for extending HDMI® digital video content beyond the 20 meter maximum supported by native HDMI cabling in most solutions. HDBaseT is positioned to support full ultra-HD/3D and 2K/4K uncompressed video, providing the highest video quality, with zero latency.
HDBaseT is a connectivity standard for residential and commercial distribution of uncompressed ultra-high-definition multimedia content. C2G offers HDMI over Cat, HDMI + USB over Cat, HDMI + Serial RS232 over Cat, and many other products which utilize HDBaseT technology. HDBaseT is built on the concept of 5Play™ which supports uncompressed full ultra-high definition 4K video, audio, 100BaseT Ethernet, USB, up to 100 watts of power and various control signals—all over a single Cat6a cable at a distance of up to 328 feet.
HDBaseT supports full ultra-HD and 4K uncompressed video. HDMI supports features such as 3D, HDCP, EDID Pass Through and CEC Control. This allows content to be viewed at the optimum performance level of the display.
HDBaseT supports all standard audio formats, including Dolby® Digital, Dolby® TrueHD, DTS®, and DTS–HD Master Audio™. This ensures that audio content is delivered at the highest performance level.
High-speed USB 2.0 pass through is supported over HDBaseT up to 230ft for KVM control of devices such as USB cameras, keyboards, mice, etc.
HDBaseT provides 100Mb Ethernet, allowing communication between televisions, sound systems, computers and other devices. This allows devices to access stored media content, such as music or streaming video.
HDBaseT allows CEC, Serial RS232, USB, IR or IP control communication between devices. This allows the user to more easily set up, use, and change connected devices.
HDBaseT is able to support the delivery of up to 100 Watts of DC power. This provides the freedom to place devices where they need to be, rather than only at the location of an available power source.
What is the maximum resolution and frame rate supported?
Each solution supports a maximum resolution of 4K at a frame rate of 60Hz.
What is the maximum extension distance?
The maximum extension distance is 328ft for a 4K signal.
Do both the transmitter and receiver need to be powered?
No, power for the extension solution will be from a single side. As a general rule, wall plate transmitters will be powered from the receiver side, but the powered side varies by kit.
What type of Category cable is recommended for the extension?
Cat6a or HDBaseT Certified Cat6a patch cables are the recommended cables for the extension.
What signal(s) does the USB-C port (if applicable) support?
The USB-C port is an input for AV only.
Does HDBaseT support EDID and HDCP?
Yes, HDBaseT supports both for total protection of copyrighted content.
What is the bandwidth for the USB Extension for transmitters that feature as USB-B port?
Those extenders support a USB 2.0 bandwidth (480Mbps).
What is the AV output port on the receivers?
All receivers have an HDMI AV output port. Some receivers also provide a separate audio output if "De-embedder" is part of the features.
Are the transmitter and receiver from a kit required to be used as a pair, or can they be mixed with like kits?
The transmitter and receiver from a kit are not paired and can be mixed with like kits. For example, if you have two kits of C2G30010, the transmitter from the first kit may be used with the receiver from the second.
How do the latest HDBaseT units differ from their previous versions?
These units (C2G31011, C2G31012, C2G31013, C2G31015) have a field firmware update option and can be upgraded in the field via the Micro-USB port on the front panel of the wall plate transmitters and via the RS232 port on the rear of the receivers.
What is the most notable feature for this latest kit?
The two top USB-A ports on the receivers that include USB extension allow for camera streaming utilizing a higher amperage: 1.4A max on top 2 USB-A ports; 0.6A max on bottom 2 USB-A ports.
HDBaseT was created as a long-distance AV connectivity solution to extend HDMI and DVI-D technology. With the effective range of a native HDMI connection limited to just a few dozen meters, there is a clear market demand for a single standard, simplified connection that can transport high-definition audio-video content at least 100 meters.
