Product Code: AC-EX100-444-KIT-GEN2

Description Technical Specs Support Documentation
This extender was built for 18Gbps Distribution, able to handle 4k60 (4:4:4) signals that include HDR.

The AC-EX100-444-KIT-GEN2 is not your average point to point HDMI extender. This unique product extends an 18Gbps 4K60 (4:4:4) audio/video signal 100 meters over single CAT 6a using ICT (Invisible Compression Technology) and manages all flavors of HDR and Dolby Vision.

This extender was engineered beyond normal 5-Play HDBaseT (Audio, Video, Power, Control, and Ethernet) to also include USB extension. Control a computer 100 meters away with a key board or mouse connected to the receiver, connect a USB camera to the receiver and control it via a PC connected to the transmitter 100 meters away; the options are endless.

The AC-EX100-444-KIT-GEN2 features left/right audio breakouts, EDID management, scaling, built-in 4K test patterns, IR, RS-232 and Ethernet all in an ultra slim chassis making it the ideal HDMI extender for use in hospitals, classrooms, museums, presentation halls and more.
  • HDMI 2.0(a/b)

Key benefits of using AC-EX100-444-KIT-GEN2:

Invisible Compression Technology: ICT is a revolution in HDMI extension technology. This proprietary technology can compress high bandwidth HDMI signals into a more manageable size to fit through a CAT 6a Cable "pipe". The ICT algorithm can manage all flavors of HDR including 4:4:4, 4:2:2, and 4:2:0 as well as signals up to 18Gbps and 4K 60Hz 4:4:4. The architecture of ICT allows it to be compatible with all chroma subsampling types, color spaces and HDMI Deep Color up to 12 Bit. Our technology is unique because it is truly invisible. It is not only invisible to the human eye, it is invisible to HDMI test gear and other sink devices, what comes in is what goes out. What makes ICT special is that we preserve HDR Metadata and color information and depth in its full, original, integrity. Other compression technologies sacrifice these to save space and it will cause very visible banding, color shifting and motion artifacts in the image.

This technology is backed by extensive testing in side by side comparisons of ICT vs direct connected sources. The setup is two identical displays and a single source. The source is split and sent to both displays, one using ICT and one with an 18Gbps cable. The movie is shown in HDR and evaluators are brought in to determine which one is compressed. The results are conclusive, it is invisible. Even to the most trained eye.

Extend 4K60 4:4:4 and HDR Signals: The length of manufactured HDMI cable is unchangeable after it is made and they are unreliable after about 25FT. Additionally, HDMI connectors can only be terminated in specialized factory environment due to its extremely high frequencies and high density. This does not allow installers or users to remake or make cables on a DIY basis. CAT 6a cables are available widely and can be reworked easily by the installer or end-user.Additionally, using CAT 6a cable allows the user to change components as technology changes. By using AC-EX100-444-KIT-GEN2, the transmission distance for HD 1080P & UHD 4K is up to 100 meters (330’).

Down Scaling: The AC-EX100-444-KIT-GEN2 has a scaling circuit built into the transmitter. The scaler can scale 4K (and HDR) --> 1080P. A common application for this is when you have a 4K distribution and you have one or two displays that are older. You can use the extender to scale down where you need to and not have to reduce the entire system. The AC-EX100-444-KIT-GEN2 does the heavy lifting, eliminating the need to add additional boxes. This is an ideal choice for extension for projects requiring an 18G matrix like the AC-MX1616-AUHD.

Total EDID Management: The AC-EX100-444-KIT-GEN2 has robust EDID control. EDID management allows you to manage the input device and request specific video resolutions and/or audio codecs. the following EDID options are available:
  • EDID Bypass
  • 1080P 2CH Audio
  • 1080P 8CH Audio
  • 4K60 4:2:0 2CH Audio
  • 4K60 4:2:0 8CH Audio
  • 4K60 4:4:4 HDR 2CH Audio
  • 4K60 4:4:4 HDR 8CH Audio
The EDID Copy Function allows you to copy and save from any display or projector you want to.

On Board Troubleshooting: This unit allows you to generate a 1080P or 4K test pattern to identify external problems (source, repeater, displays, etc...). You can now be sure that your wiring is correct and get to the bottom of problems quickly should they arise, without having to worrying if the source or sink is working properly. You can generate a test pattern from the Tx or the Rx so you can verify total system infrastructure integrity.

Cascade: AC-EX100-444-KIT-GEN2 features HDMI signal equalization and amplification. This allows for a “daisy chain” of AC-EX100-444-KIT-GEN2 extenders for extremely long distance transmission. With our unique bi-directional power, there is no need for a power source where the Rx and Tx meet up in a daisy chain, simply power the first Tx and the second Rx and power will be provided to the middle remotely.

IR & RS232 Management: IR & RS-232 are bidirectional and can control the sources from the sinks or vice versa. In addition you can use the I-PASS port to plug you Control System emitter ports directly into the IR (I-PASS) port on the transmitter (via mono 3.5mm cable) for clean and reliable IR pass through, our unique VPC (Voltage Protection Circuit) allows you to do this without wear and tear on the electronics inside

This unit is awesome. Needed a 4K60 HDR 4:4:4 unit with ARC and it came through big time. Strongly recommend it.
