EXTRON LAUNCHES HDMI WIRELESS LINE
Extron has entered the wireless video transmission market with its new eLink 100, a wireless extender that sends HDMI video and multi-channel audio signals up to 30 meters.
The eLink 100 is HDCP-compliant and supports computer video with resolutions to 1920×1080, including HDTV 1080p/60. Latency of less than one millisecond ensures high quality wireless operation with real-time performance, and use of the 5GHz spectrum allows signals to pass easily through walls and other obstacles.
To ensure connection stability in environments with multipath signals, the extender uses a robust multi-input and multi-output (MIMO) communication technology with AES-128 encryption, and actively monitors the RF spectrum for selection of the ideal transmission channels. Since these technologies do not require line-of-sight, the eLink 100 T transmitter and eLink 100 R receiver can be concealed or mounted in separate areas to maintain the aesthetics of a space.
“Launching our new line of wireless products, the eLink 100 is the ideal solution to extend HDMI signals without cable runs or building modifications,” says Extron VP of sales and marketing, Casey Hall. “AV designers and integrators now have a better way to extend signals in historic buildings and other spaces where hiding cables is problematic and cutting into walls and floors is simply not an option.”
The MIMO technology provides maximum throughput to enable pixel-for-pixel transmission of high resolution video with ultra-low latency. Automatic Frequency Selection (AFS), including Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS), actively monitors the RF spectrum to identify and select an available channel, avoiding interference from other devices. For installations with multiple display devices, one transmitter can support multiple receivers, allowing an AV signal to be distributed to up to four displays. These technologies and the compact size of the eLink 100 make it an effective means of wirelessly extending HDMI video with embedded audio in a wide variety of environments such as historic buildings, houses of worship and other locations where running cable is a challenge.
