Hall Research recently introduced the ULTRA-4K, a dual-head HDMI and USB 2.0 KVM extender over one CAT6 cable to 100m.
The ULTRA-4K sender provides two HDMI inputs and one USB port for connection to a host PC. The sender provides local HDMI outputs as well as a two-port USB hub. The remote receiver connects to the sender using one Cat6 cable.
The sender provides three RJ45 outputs so more than one receiver can be connected to allow access to the PC from multiple remote locations. When more than one receiver is connected to the same sender, all receivers show the same two video screens and keyboard/mouse data from either remote location are automatically routed to the PC based on user activity.
The entire system is transparent to the PC and does not require any driver or software to be installed.
The ULTRA-4K receiver provides two HDMI video outputs, dedicated keyboard and mouse ports (with auto switching), and a 4-port USB 2.0 hub for connection of other USB devices such as touchscreens, printers, etc.
More About the ULTRA-4K
Plug-and-play operation requires no setup after connecting the sender to the receiver using a Cat5e/6 cable. The system supports video resolutions to 3840 x 2160 (UHD/4K) and applications requiring 2560 x 1600, 2560 x 1440, and 1920 x 1080 resolutions.
Other standard HDTV and PC resolutions are also supported.
The Hall Research Ultra-4K system works with high-resolution KVM applications requiring computers to be kept in a secure server room and accessed remotely from either single or multiple locations, such as in trading rooms in financial institutions or accessing information or monitoring patients in health care facilities.
Late last year, Hall Research earned a U.S. patent for the Hall Research EX-HDU HDMI & USB single wall plate extender. The EX-HDU is an HDMI and USB extender comprised of a single-gang wall plate sender and compatible receiver, according to the company.
