US manufacturer Atlona has added to its family of HDBaseT extenders with the Centum Series AT-CENT-301-CEA.
The high dynamic range (HDR) compatible video extender can deliver 4K/UHD video @ 60 Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling and HDMI data rates up to 18 Gbps, to meet next-generation residential integration requirements.
Atlona product manager Joshua Castro says the AT-CENT-301-CEA is a real breakthrough for the HDBaseT standard.
“It opens up the door for residential and commercial integrators in terms of the system options and flexibility they can employ in their HDR-related projects,” he says.
“This extender pair enables them to provide their clients with best-in-class solutions for current and forthcoming HDR and 4K applications.”
Compatible with all video resolutions, audio formats and colour space formats supported in the HDMI 2.0a specification, it is ideal for applications requiring the latest generation of 4K/UHD and HDR sources and displays. In addition, it has the ability to pass metadata for HDR content.
The AT-CENT-301-CEA is HDCP 2.2 compliant and provides HDMI transmission up to 100m over category cable with embedded multi-channel audio. HDR and 4K/60 4:4:4 video extension are made possible through the use of visually lossless VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC). This extender also supports Ethernet pass-through, RS-232 and IR control and Power over Ethernet – the receiver is powered by the extender. EDID management features ensure proper audio formats and video resolutions are provided to the AV system.
Atlona will be unveiling the extender at CEDIA next week at booth #1900.
Atlona is distributed by Midwich in Australia and Wired NZ in New Zealand, which was recently acquired by Midwich.
