Economically Extend HDMI and USB on one CAT6 with Audio, Device Control, and Optional IP Connectivity

Ideal for Interactive Screens, Whiteboards and Kiosks

The EX-HDU is used to extend HDMI video and USB data on a single Cat6 cable up to 200 ft (60 meters). HDMI audio is extracted and is provided both as analog stereo and multi-channel digital. The EX-HDU can also be used to control other equipment by providing programmable contact closure I/O, RS-232 output, IR output, and optional LAN interface with internal WebGUI and IP control.



AV and Control over IP with HDMI Loop Output, De-embedded Audio, OSD, Serial-over-IP & IR

Create a Virtual Matrix Switch and Control External Equipment via SoIP

The FHD264 is a family of HDMI over LAN Senders (encoders) and Receivers (decoders). The system also extends Serial RS-232 communications and bi-directional IR remote signals. HDMI Audio is extracted and available on a convenient 3.5mm stereo jack on both the Sender and the Receiver. The FHD264-S Sender also provides local HDMI output.

Each device provides a two-line front panel LCD that can be used to easily configure or monitor parameters such as IP settings, multicast group selection, assignment of device names, and more. This eliminates the usual installation challenges of finding and configuring devices on the network for the first time. With the front panel LCD, users can see and assign configuration parameters with ease.

The RS-232 serial ports on each unit can be used in SoIP mode (Serial over IP). This allows 3rd party IP controllers to directly control peripheral equipment via RS-232. For example if the RS-232 of a receiver is connected to a video projector, you can turn the projector on or off via telnet commands sent to the FHD264 Receiver.  Other advanced features include: PoE operation, User defined names with OSD of selected input name, IR remote for changing multicast groups on the Receiver, free PC manager tool, and optional WebGUI system controller.

Accommodates any Mix of Local and Remote Displays to 100m (330ft) Away

This 4×4 Matrix Switch supports 4K HDMI and provides simultaneous HDMI and HDBaseT outputs to easily extend HDMI, IR, RS-232, Ethernet, and Power using a single CAT6 cable to 100m (328ft).
