LINDY Launches Cost Effective Extender for HDMI Over Gigabit Network

Halves the cost of equipment required to broadcast HDMI signals over IP

Here is our most cost effective product yet for distributing video content throughout large buildings such as schools, hotels, hospitals, shops, shopping centres and business premises. The LINDY HDMI Over IP Extender allows for full HD images to be sent over a gigabit ethernet network or up to 100m using a single CAT6 Cable.

Consisting of transmitter and receiver units, the extender can support one to one, one to many and many to many configurations. In addition, it is possible to use up to three layers of active network devices to distribute video making it highly flexible for digital signage, presentation and demonstration applications, while providing the ability to expand easily as the installation evolves.

“Our latest product cuts in half the cost of equipment required to broadcast HDMI signals over IP,” says Owen Haigh, Senior Product Manager of LINDY Electronics. “Sold as individual units, organisations need only purchase the transmitters and receivers required for their specific configuration.”

Using a form of video compression that is barely perceptible, the LINDY HDMI Over IP Extender converts the HDMI signal to enable it to be broadcast over IP. LINDY suggests because of high use of bandwidth requirements of Full HD video that the system runs on its own dedicated network or used in a separate port based VLAN.

The LINDY HDMI Over IP Extender Transmitter (part no. 38127) and the LINDY HDMI Over IP Extender Receiver (part no. 38128) can be purchased from www.lindy.com.au
