TAIPEI, Taiwan – Aten, a manufacturer of IT connectivity and management solutions, announced the release of a second series of HDBaseT-certified extenders. Aten’s new HDBaseT-Lite Series are HDBaseT Class B solutions with a transmission distance of up to 70 meters. The HDBaseT Lite series boasts a comprehensive set of features teamed with an affordable price, complementing Aten’s existing Class A line (up to 100m).
“The HDBaseT-Lite Series provides a cost-effective solution for a wide range of industry applications with the same commitment to quality that Aten is renowned for,” said Kevin Chen, president of Aten International.
Aten’s new HDBaseT-Lite Series consists of three models designed to suit a range of applications and budgets:
- VE802: HDMI HDBaseT-Lite extender with POH
- VE801: HDMI HDBaseT-Lite extender
- VE601: DVI HDBaseT-Lite extender
Of the HDBaseT-Lite Series, the VE802 HDMI HDBaseT-Lite extender with Power over HDBaseT offers the most extensive set of features. The POH function allows power to be transmitted from transmitter to receiver via the Cat 5e/6a cable, simplifying cable deployments and reducing installation costs as the receiver requires no additional power source. The VE802 also has a bi-directional RS-232 serial port and a bi-directional IR Channel port for control and configuration.
For more basic A/V extension applications, the VE801 provides similar functionality to the VE802 but without the added features of POH, IR, and RS-232 support. Alternatively, the VE601 is a perfect fit for applications which require a DVI-compliant extender. All models include interference-resistant technology and support resolutions up to 4K.
