Only the Best Pass the Test!
DPL Laboratories, the industry’s leading digital testing laboratory specializing in the performance assessment of digital signaling solutions such as HDMI 4K Extenders, announced it has issued the first prestigious Full 4K HDR 18Gbps HDBaseT Category Cable Seal of Approval to Transformative Engineering for the HD-4K.
Jeff Boccaccio, President of DPL Laboratories, noted, “Running HDBaseT extenders through our testing process just about always yields some disappointing anomaly. The Transformative Engineering HD-4K was no different except the anomaly turned out to be a superb performance level when pushed to its max distances with CED (Character Error Detection). After 36 hours of run time, the system registered zero errors for all three TMDS channels. We have experienced short Fibre Cables that have generated as many as 200 errors over 10 minutes. This just means the HD-4K is doing a great job in the conversion process and output control. CED is one of the new features with HDMI Rev 2.0 where some active components have not fared very well. Copper is far from being extinct.”
Specifications for T-E’s HD-4K include 4K 60Hz 4:4:4 w/HDR HDBaseT over Category Cable, compatible with the maximum HDMI 2.0 specification of 18Gbps data throughput. The HD-4K is HDCP2.2 compliant and legacy compatibility with all HDCP specifications for HDMI. It extends Full 4K HDR HDMI, IR (Bi-Directional), and RS-232 up to 60 meters (200 feet). Greater distances are achievable with lower resolutions (UHD, Full HD, HD, etc.).
