4K 18G HDMI over 164 feet (50 m) CAT-5e/6 extender (transmitter/receiver set)
with HDR, power over CATx, IR or RS-232
Key Digital® KD-X444SP is a 4K/UHD 18Gbps, HDCP 2.2 compliant HDMI over CAT-5e/6 transmitter plus receiver set for extension of digital video signals with the latest standards in resolution, HDR, and Chroma over a single CATx cable.
KD-X444SP extends video resolutions up to 4096x2160 at 60hz with 4:4:4 chroma sub-sampling over a single CAT-5e/6 cable up to 164 feet (50 m).
In addition to HDMI AV, KD-X444SP carries IR or RS-232 for controlling remotely located equipment. An IR sensor and IR emitter are included, and the transmitter unit's IR input port supports serial IR input directly from a control system / IR block.
With power over CATc (PoC), only one power supply is needed, and it may be connected at either unit for ease of installation.
KD-X444SP features Key Digital's proprietary Full Buffer Technology software suite, with EDID handshake management, fixed hot plug detection, HDCP authentication to the connected source, and TMDS signal reclocking for installation with long cabling or many connectivity layers.
In addition to mounting with the supplied L-brackets, multiple KD-X444SP units may be mounted in KD-SMS16 using the side mounting screws (see listing below).
