MORGANVILLE, NJ June 12th, 2019, (InfoComm 2019, Booth 1931) — Aurora Multimedia redefines HDBaseT with many new industry first capabilities including the ability to work at 4K60 4:4:4 with a single unshielded CAT 5e or better cable and the world’s first Dante® option for 2 or 8 channel Dante. We even went a step further by implementing ARC (Audio Return Channel) and allowing it to be fed to Dante or to the local line output making it a first.
Three new HDBaseT 2.0 products comprised of the HTW-2 two gang transmitter Decora wall plate, HTE- TX2 transmitter box unit, and the HTE-RX2 receiver box unit will change the way HDBaseT is utilized.
All products are capable of transmitting 4K60 4:4:4 18Gbps HDMI 2.0/HDCP2.2 100m (330ft) over a single unshielded CAT cable with no quality compromise and with zero frame latency. In addition, all products have an integrated web server for remote IP control, USB 2.0 with directional control, and the world's first Dante option for 2 or 8 channel Dante.
The HT Series is the first ever to implement a bi-directional PoH for remote powering. Currently all HDBaseT products on the market which use the PoH standard are limited to one direction. The HT Series allows a user to choose which side to power from and in a nonproprietary way so it will work with any HDBaseT PoH compliant device. To further simplify the installation, the HT Series can power both TX and RX from a single port of a PoE Switch eliminating external power supplies.
"The new Aurora HDBaseT products will further enhance the capabilities of HDBaseT and simplify installations especially with point to point installations," says Paul Harris, CEO of Aurora.
