EXT-DVIKA-HBT2
Gefen EXT-DVIKA-HBT2

With USB, RS-232, 2-way IR, 2-way Audio, and POH

The Gefen EXT-DVIKA-HBT2 DVI KVM HDBaseT 2.0 Extender uses Gefen's implementation of the latest HDBaseT 2.0 technology to extend DVI over a single CAT-5e cable, up to 495 feet (150 meters). The new HDBaseT 2.0 Colligo™ platform provides additional features such as USB and 2-way audio extension, and ensures an even more robust and resilient connection than the industry standard HDBaseT. Resolutions up to 1080p and 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) are supported. HDMI resolutions up to 4K DCI-Cinema (4096 x 2160 @ 30 Hz 4:4:4) and 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz 4:2:0) along with 7.1 channels of LPCM and HBR (High Bit Rate) lossless digital audio are also supported when using Gefen DVI to HDMI cables. Supported HBR formats include Dolby Atmos®, Dolby® TrueHD, DTS:X, and DTS-HD Master Audio. USB, RS-232, and 2-way L/R analog audio can be extended between the Sender and the Receiver to accommodate a complete workstation including keyboard, mouse, select USB periperals, microphone, headphones, and powered speakers. 1U tall, half-rack-width enclosures can be surface-mounted, installed in a standard 19-inch rack using the EXT-RACK-1U-GRY rack tray, or be placed on a shelf.

Video Support

Resolutions up to 4K DCI-Cinema (4096 x 2160 @ 30 Hz 4:4:4) and 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz 4:2:0) are supported.. This product is compliant with the latest HDCP 2.2 protocol as well as HDCP 1.4.

Audio Support

Support for 2-way stereo analog audio as well as  7.1 channels of LPCM and HBR (High Bit Rate) lossless digital audio when embedded in HDMI signal using Gefen DVI to HDMI cables.

USB & Serial Extension

This product provides RS-232 and 2-way IR extension between the Sender and the Receiver units, facilitating the control of A/V sources placed near the Sender unit and sending automation commands to the display or another device placed near the Receiver unit.

Power Over HDBaseT

POH (Power Over HDBaseT) technology provides power from the Receiver to the Sender unit, using the same CAT-5 cable that extends the DVI, audio, and control signals. Only the Receiver unit needs an external power supply. The POH standard ensures compatibility with other POH class-compliant devices.

Syner-G™ Support

The Gefen Syner-G software with its powerful EDID Management capabilities speeds up configuration, performs real-time performance analysis via Link Monitoring, and simplifies in-field firmware updates.
