Vanco International has been granted U.S. Patent No. 9,710,038 B1, making it very official that it’s the only non-HDBaseT enabled solution available today that extends bi-directional Power over Ethernet (PoE), allowing electrical power to be transmitted simultaneously with data signals over a Cat 5e/6 cable, up to 50 meters from the HDMI source at 4K or full HD 1080p 24-bit color, even in 3D.


That’s according to a Vanco press release, and also according to the actual language in the Patent.

The patented technology first showed up in Vanco’s Evolution EVEX2006 HDMI extender and the company has since developed a family of products using the patented technology, including the EVWP2006 and EVEXVGAHD HDMI and VGA extenders, EVMX44QI matrix selector switch, as well as EVSP1013 and EVSP1017 splitters.

‚ÄúEVEX2006 is one of¬†Vanco‚Äôs top selling products and receiving a patent for the innovative technology we are using in the product is a major win for us,‚ÄĚ says Mark Corbin, VP of distribution markets, in the press release.

‚ÄúWe are the only source for yet another exclusive technology in the AV industry, providing installers in both residential and commercial markets with unique HDMI extenders, splitters and a matrix selector switch with bi-directional power, transmission and control of the highest quality video signals.‚ÄĚ
