ATEN Extends HDMI with Ultra HD 4k Video Over 300 Feet on a Single Cat 5e Cable

Ideal for Broadcast Studios, Conference Centers, Corporate Training Facilities, Schools and Government, ATEN’s VE814 Transmits HDMI from a Single Source to Two Displays Located Up to 330 Feet Away

Foothill Ranch, CA (April 8, 2013) – ATEN, a leading designer and manufacturer of advanced connectivity solutions, today announced a new addition to its VanCryst™ line of professional AV products. The VE814 HDMI Extender implements state-of-the-art extension technology to extend ultra HD 4k (4 times the resolution of 1080p) video up to 330 feet, IR (infrared), RS-232 and Ethernet using only one Cat 5e cable. It is designed for broadcast studios, conference centers, corporate training facilities, schools and other environments that need to distribute multimedia content.

Unlike the length limitation of standard HDMI cable, the VE814 is capable of delivering high-quality video to dual HDMI displays located up to 330 feet away from the HDMI source device. Based on HDBaseT™ technology, it provides a cost-effective full featured solution for long-distance AV applications. In addition, high-quality video can be streamed using up to three HDMI displays – one connected to the VE814T and dual displays connected to the VE814R.

The VE814 includes a built-in Ethernet pass-through port for Internet connectivity, making it easy to access and integrate the Web when necessary. With bidirectional IR functionality, it provides a convenient way to control HDMI source devices from the remote unit. Furthermore, the RS-232 serial connection allows the VE814 to be integrated with serial devices and touch panel applications.

Fully supporting HDMI (3D, Deep Color), HDCP-compatible content and resolutions of up to ultra HD 4k and 1080p Full HD, the VE814 ensures a superior audio and video experience.s"


HDMI enables organizations to deliver a broad array of multimedia content and information, yet certain applications and environments can be hampered by distance limitations,” explained Jack Wang, CEO of ATEN. "The VE814 supports 3D and 4k resolution, providing a cost-effective and flexible solution to reliably deliver HDMI video content over long distances by using standard Cat 5e cabling.”

Pricing for the VE814 is $699.95 and will be available in May. For more information on ATEN products and solutions, please visit http://www.aten-usa.com/.
