consolidate up to eight 4K HDMI extenders in one powered rack unit to transmit HD signals up to 450 feet away using CAT-5e/6 

Note: Receiver units are purchased separately

RK8-HDX-ULT is the perfect solution for extending 4K HDMI signals to 8 remote locations 300 feet via PoE or up to 450 feet when both sides are powered, ensuring peak performance when transmitting ultra-high quality picture resolutions. RK8-HDX-ULT is the perfect extender solution for any system, and works in tandem with SmartAVI matrixes for robust routing configurations. Plus, with RS-232 and IR remote control, taking command is convenient and easy every time!

It is the ideal way to consolidate up to eight workstation computers into one location. It is fully compatible with Mac, PC and Linux HDMI standards. Up to eight displays can be extended easily from a rack without the mess or expense of multiple extenders. Rather than buy multiple extenders for rack components, and having to find power strips or numerous power outlets for the adapters, the SmartAVI rack series of extenders allows for up to eight transmitters and eight receivers with only one power supply.

Whether it's for a home entertainment system or a commercial installation, the RK8-HDX-ULT delivers flexibility and control. Don't let the distance bring your system down: let the RK8-HDX-ULT extend your reach today!

Rack to Endpoint
If your company uses a rack of source devices, whether it be computer servers, DVD players or other hardware, RK8-HDX-ULT allows you to run all of those components into one extension box that supports up to eight inputs/outputs on one power supply. In this example, source signals are being routed from a company rack through RK8-HDX-ULT to multiple displays. The rack utilizes SmartAVI's HDX-ULT-RX receiver unit at the end point to convert the CAT-5e/6 feed back into an HDMI signal.

SmartAVI's HDX-ULT-RX Receiver is an innovative solution to extending any HDMI signal – be it a gaming console, Blu-ray player, computer, etc. – over inexpensive CAT-5e/6 STP cabling up to 450 feet away to one remote display and one local screen for realtime monitoring of content. This is the perfect solution for broadcasting high-definition media easily and inexpensively from a source to display screen for customers to view while keeping the CPU in a remote, secure location such as a computer room or back office of a business.

Utilizing HDX-ULT-RX, users can monitor what's being shown to customers in real-time via a local display while users retain full control over the CPU or HDMI source, accessible only by key personnel. HDX-ULT-RX is a compact unit that is easily integrated into a digital display network in a retail store, bar/lounge or other venue. The Receiver unit is small and light, which makes inclusion into infrastructure very simple.

• Industrial work areas - In industrial work areas that may be too harsh for a workstation computer, the RK8-HDX-ULT can consolidate the computers into a safe location.
