The Aurora Multimedia DXE-CAT-RX3 HDMI HDBaseT Extender with Relays is part of the DigitalXtreme Series. Rear mounted connectors provide for a clean professional installation. The DXE-CAT-RX3 is designed to complement the Digital Xtreme Series of HDBaseT transmitters such as the DXW-2 Series HDBaseT wall plates, DXE-CAT-TX1, DXE-CAT-TX2, DXM Matrixes, etc. The built-in relays are suitable for screen control, and the audio amplifier versions will fill the room with sound when used with the Aurora SKR-22T 360° Sound Field Ceiling Tile Speaker.
Going the distance: HDBaseT technology with a single CAT cable, allows the DXE-CAT to operate up to 330' for 1080p 60 Hz 48-bit color depth, 500' for 1080p 60 Hz 24-bit (CAT6), or 600' for 1080p 60 Hz 24-bit (CAT 6A shielded) depending on transmitter model. In addition, the RS-232, IR, & LAN can be sent over the same cable bi-directionally. It features the ability to serve up Web control pages via LAN to any browser-enabled device (e.g., iPad, iPhone, PC, Android) to take control of the RS-232, IR, and LAN. This is done with the Aurora LXCcontrol system engine inside, so not only is the DXE-CAT an HDMI extender receiver unit, but a fully functional autonomous control system that can operate standalone or as a port-expansion unit for any control system.
When paired with a transmitter, only one unit will require a power supply (model # PS0080-1-US), sold separately. Power is sent to the other unit over Ethernet (Power-over-HDBaseT). Alternatively, you can use just an optional PoE switch to power both units.
