The AC-EX40-444-KIT Ultra Slim 4K 4:4:4 HDMI 2.0 over HDBaseT Extender Kit from AVPro Edge is 4K60 4:4:4, HDR, and 18Gb/s supported HDBaseT extender over single Cat (6a recommended) UTP/STP. The extender uses ICT (Invisible Compression Technology) to deliver a virtually lossless high-bandwidth 4K HDR signal with support for all signals up to 18Gb/s. Deep Color and HDR Metadata remain intact, making the transmission free of artifacts like banding.
The AC-EX40-444-KIT has a scaling circuit built into the transmitter. The scaler can scale 4K (and HDR) to 1080p. A common application for this is when you have a 4K distribution and you have one or two displays that are older. You can use the extender to scale down where you need to and not have to reduce the entire system. The AC-EX40-444 does the heavy lifting, eliminating the need to add additional boxes. This is an ideal choice for extension for projects requiring an 18G matrix like the AC-MX1616-AUHD.
