For reliable and elegant HDMI extension over Cat5e/6, the new HDX-W100 HDMI extender from SmartAVI delivers 150 feet of additional length using an unobtrusive wall plate design. By concealing the single Cat5e/6 cable required for signal extension, users can create a more attractive video distribution installation that can make a screen practically wireless. This is the ideal extender solution in homes, control rooms, corporate environments and any other location where well-designed and clean signal routing is a must.

The HDX-W100 is HDMI 1.3 and HDCP compliant, and it delivers crystal clear HDTV resolutions up to 1080p. This new HDMI extender also features infrared control with bi-directional IR communication, which means users can use their HDMI device’s remote control to manage its functions while in front of the display, as far as 150 feet away. The device also transmits eight-channel Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD audio.

The HDX-W100 wall plate design solves the problem of exposed cabling, which frustrates many users and systems architects. Similarly, the distance limitation of HDMI cables – usually around 40 feet – also creates restrictions on the implementation of HD devices and displays, which this new HDMI extender also solves. Finally, the device features power over Cat5e/6 (POE), so users only have to plug in the transmitter end.

“The design of our HDX-W100 wall plate HDMI extender delivers important functionality for a wide variety of venues,” said Albert Cohen, CEO of SmartAVI. “Combined with the unit’s low price, this new HDMI extender over Cat5e/6 is a fantastic value, as well.”
