Tustin, California, USA - November 20, 2014

The UHBX-8X is a 1 RU device that converts 8 HDMI inputs to corresponding HDBaseT outputs for extension to 150 meters (500 ft) using UTP (Cat5e/6) cables. The extender supports HDCP, deep-color, CEC, and 4K (UHD) resolution. The HDBaseT outputs can be directly connected to displays equipped with HDBaseT inputs or any of the various receivers from Hall Research including the cost effective UH-1BT-R or the PoH powered UHBX-R-PD that also provides RS-232 and IR extension.
The UHBX-8X includes IP (Ethernet), and RS-232 ports for control. Using these ports the user can address and send RS-232 or IR commands to any of the receivers to control the display. Eight IR emitter ports are provided on the UHBX-8X that can be used to control multiple sources connected to the UHBX-8X.
The extender is constructed as a 1RU rack-mountable unit and has a built-in power supply. To send power over HDBaseT (PoH) to compatible receivers, an optional 48v power supply is required. LED indicators on the front panel show Link, HDCP, Long Reach, and Power status for each output.  
The extender is also available as a 4-port version, the Model UHBX-4X. The multi-port HDBaseT extenders are designed and manufactured in the USA.
