New ELR (Extra Long Range) Extender from Gefen uses HDBaseT and POL (Power Over Line) Technologies to Send HDMI, Power, Ethernet, IR and RS-232 Over a Single CAT-5 Cable

Date: 07/04/2011
Digital connectivity solutions provider Gefen today announced its newest breakthrough for an extra long-range extension of HDMI devices. The GefenPRO ELR Extender for HDMI with POL offers a long-range, multi-signal method of extension up to 330-feet (100m) over just one CAT-5 cable, a significant improvement over previous solutions, which required two cables to reach shorter distances.

Innovative Gefen POL technology based on the Power Over Ethernet standard enables the delivery of power to the receiver unit, giving an added advantage to the integrator. Power is provided to the receiver using the AC power connected at the sender unit. Each receiver unit is also equipped with an additional 5v output to power a supplemental product, such as a scaler, switcher or splitter at the display location.

The GefenPRO ELR Extender for HDMI with POL is ideal for installations where power requirements are limited at the receiving side, such as when mounting projectors on the ceiling. By reducing the cabling requirements from two to one, it allows installers to easily tap into existing in-wall CAT-5 type cabling.

HDMI video at 1080p full HD resolutions, 3DTV support, audio, IR remote, RS-232 control, Ethernet and power are all delivered over the same CAT-5 cable. HDMI features supported include 3DTV, deep color, lip sync and audio delay. Both the IR backchannel and RS-232 connection can be used to control the display from the remote location. Each receiver can be wall mounted for added convenience.

As a GefenPRO product, the ELR Extender for HDMI with POL comes with advanced technical support, a two-year warranty, and plug and play performance.
