Crestron today announced the availability of its new HDMI over HDBaseT Transmitter (HD-TX3-C) and HDMI over HDBaseT Receiver (HD-RX3-C). The new devices support 4K resolution content and provide a simple, reliable solution for extending uncompressed HDMI signals up to 330 feet (100 meters) via HDBaseT over a single CAT5e/UTP cable without signal degradation. These very simple yet flexible products are the perfect solution in a variety of applications, such as direct connectivity to HDBaseT sources and displays and Crestron DigitalMedia systems.

Available in a black or white faceplate, the HD-TX3-C makes it simple to connect an HDMI, DVI or DisplayPort Multimode source to an HDBaseT display. Conversely, the HD-RX3-C enables easy connection of an HDBaseT source to an HDMI or DVI display.

The HD-TX3-C and HD-RX3-C also make it easy to send or receive IR and bidirectional RS-232 control signals for a true AV and control transmission solution. No special configuration or programming is required — just connect your source and display and enjoy high-quality HD video and audio from across the room — or the other end of the house.

Need a simple, inexpensive DigitalMedia transmitter or receiver? The HD-TX3-C and HD-RX3-C fit the bill for that, too. The HD-TX3-C can serve as a single-gang wall mount DM transmitter. Simply connect an HDMI source to the HD-TX3 on the wall and then transmit the signal directly to the DM input of a DigitalMedia switcher or receiver. The HD-RX3-C can serve as a simple, lower-cost DM receiver to send HDMI to a display when full control is not required.

For applications requiring both a transmitter and receiver, the two devices are also available bundled together as the HDMI® over HDBaseT® Extender w/IR & RS-232 (HD-EXT3-C)
