With HDMI up to 4K@60Hz YUV4:2:0 and VGA up to 1920 x 1200@60Hz, the EX-SW-0201-4K extender set offers 5Play compliance for distribution of 4K and HD video, HD audio, bidirectional IR and RS-232 control of the HDMI source, 2way power and Ethernet using HDBaseT Class A technology for reliable transmission over distances up to 70m/230ft (4K) or 100m/328ft (1080p).

In addition, EDID and DIP setting management allows for RS-232 and Long Cable modes to be toggled, as well as the manual setting of resolutions for improved communication and compatibility between source and display devices.

The EX-SW-0201-4K auto-switching transmitter automatically detects and selects a newly connected HDMI or VGA device for minimal effort needed by the user and also features a 3.5mm stereo mini-jack audio input to embed audio within the VGA signal.

The EX-SW-0201-4K receiver delivers the transmitted 5Play signal to the display device with a 3.5mm mini-jack to de-embed audio from the incoming HDMI or VGA signal for connection to the display device or local speakers 

Both transmitter and receiver feature bidirectional PoH for either unit to be powered remotely by the other for an even more flexible installation, and also feature LED Power, Status, HDCP and Link indication to visually indicate signal activity and correct unit functionality.
