The 4K Over IP Extender system allows users to extend a 4K video source such as a PC or PVR through a standard Gigabit IP network letting the user control it from the remote side through the extended USB interfaces. This receiver unit can be connected to a transmitter unit (No. 38266 – not included) to create a standard point-to-point control system with a maximum distance of 100m (393ft). The transmitter can also be connected to many receivers, allowing a single device to be controlled from different consoles at the receiver end or creating a Video Wall installation via a dedicated Gigabit Ethernet (supporting 8kB Jumbo frames) switch on the same private network. Besides the HDMI embedded audio signal, this unit also manages 2 additional audio channels (1 x Line out audio from the source side and 1 for microphone connected on the remote side) and a SPDIF optical port on the receiver unit to connect a digital audio amplifier or device.
This HDMI Over IP extender system includes a convenient bidirectional IR (20-60Khz) repeating system to allow the extension of the remote control signals. This device is a typical solution for security system management (PVR management or control rooms) or remote server administration (though the KVM control system) as well as AV signals over IP extension for distributed monitoring of industrial facilities. Another main application for this system is big Video Wall installation (up to 16×16 screens) widely used for digital signage and retail stores.
