Key Digital debuts 4K 18G smart extender kit

Key Digital has launched the KD-XPS22U 4K 18G smart extender kit for installations where a display or projector is distanced from HDMI sources.

The KD-XPS22U delivers signal extension along with full-featured system control by bundling together the KD-PS22UTx Switcher/Transmitter – with integral HDBaseT signal transmission capabilities – and the KD-X100MRx Receiver.

The KD-XPS22U is suited for applications in home theatres.

Key Digital’s soft-codec and KVM enabling system uses HDBaseT’s bidirectionality to create a connectivity hub for USB cameras and microphones, keyboard, mouse or touchscreen display. Displays and projectors can be controlled directly by way of IR and RS-232 extension, or via CEC control of power and volume via the KD App or KDMS Pro software. eARC is supported for HDMI and optical audio, with audio de-embedding. Either unit can be powered from its partner Tx/Rx, increasing flexibility of where the units may be located. 

The KD-XPS22U supports a list of content standards, including the HDCP 2.2 anti-piracy protocol; the HDR10 standard for high-dynamic-range video; and EDID management for display recognition. It also offers deep color support up to UHD/4K 30Hz 4:4:4/12-bit or 60Hz 4:4:4/8-bit and has a full buffer system to manage HDCP authentication, EDID control handshakes and TMDS re-clocking / signal re-generation for serial data optimisation.
