Atlona says the product line can carry A/V control and Power over Ethernet (PoE) all over a single cable and the units can all be updated through their USB ports.

Atlona says the unit supports the transmission of 4K video, CEC pass thru, IR and RS-232. The line of products includes the AT-HDTX transmitter and the HT-HDRX receiver which can be used for IR control, and Atlona says these devices can transmit up to 70 meters. The AT-HDTX-RSNET transmitter and AT-HDRX-RSNET receiver can be used to transmit bi-directional IR and PoE signals up to 100 meters.

Solutions: The Atlona HDMI Extenders Over Cat 5e/6/7 products can be used for residential and commercial A/V systems.
