What is HDMI over IP? 4 Reasons to Use It
HDMI over IP is a transmission technology that processes a compressed/uncompressed HDMI signal and transfers it to endpoints over a network.
Providing richer A/V environment with 4K 60Hz DisplayPort video and multi-channel audio.
Enabling USB device connectivity from remote or virtualized hosts.
Built-in 3.5mm phone jack/ SPDIF to connect an external audio speaker.
DP02U-4K6G is a DisplayPort over HDBaseT Extender which is able to send uncompressed video, digital & analog audio, RS232 signals, with resolution up to 4K@60Hz 4:4:4 and transmission distance up to 100M. It uses the Valens Stello VS3000 chipset, which is the only solution for long-range distribution of uncompressed video, with zero latency. The 4 built-in USB ports at RX unit can connect multiple USB devices, such as keyboards, mouses, and flash drives.
Since its introduction, DisplayPort has quickly become the most widely used audiovisual interface apart from HDMI. In addition to being royalty-free, DisplayPort's audiovisual specifications are even superior to HDMI, attracting users who pursue higher-quality visuals.
Today, the audiovisual market also demands integration for DisplayPort due to its flourishing development. Regarding DisplayPort, which already supports high-quality graphics, HDBaseT transmission is the best choice.
More and more large-scale projects require reliable, high-performance methods to extend their DisplayPort signals. With HDBaseT 3.0 technology, the DP02U-4K6G can integrate multiple signals and, thanks to its exceptionally high transmission bandwidth, extend signals up to 100m using a single network cable. This makes it highly suitable for professional applications such as live esports events, large-scale exhibitions, and more.
DP02U-4K6G supports uncompressed 4K@60Hz video through HDBaseT 3.0 technology, avoiding any loss of image quality and delivering a lifelike, vivid audiovisual experience.
DP02U-4K6G is compatible with the HE02UR-4K6G. Both devices utilize HDBaseT 3.0 technology, allowing you to extend your DisplayPort output source to an HDMI display for playback and perform KVM operations.
DP02U-4K6G supports 4-port USB 2.0 transmission, allowing you to connect peripherals such as keyboards, mice, webcams, touchscreens, and other computer peripherals. This not only enhances control flexibility but also addresses any device expansion needs.
DP02U-4K6G is equipped with a 3.5mm RS232 jack, enabling the remote transmission of control signals to computers or mechanical devices.
In addition to the built-in audio transmission of DisplayPort itself, the DP02U-4K6G also supports 3.5mm audio input/output to enable users to utilize communication functions remotely. This allows you to connect headphones, speakers, or microphones.
The extension of HDBaseT 3.0 heavily relies on the quality of the cables. Utilizing cables certified by the HDBaseT Alliance is advantageous for achieving the optimal transmission distance of 100 meters. SC&T provides a detailed list of cable models, specifications, and transmission distances in the user manual for integrators to purchase the right cables.
Yes, DisplayPort inherently includes video and audio signals; when the extender extends the signals, audio will also be transmitted simultaneously. Some DisplayPort extenders also support 3.5mm audio input and output, making it more convenient for users to choose the corresponding audio devices according to their needs.
DisplayPort extenders are backward compatible with older DP versions, while the transmitted video only follows the specifications of the lower version. To achieve maximum performance, ensure the extender and the devices support the same DP version.
It is recommended to use the same brand of DisplayPort extenders to ensure compatibility and optimal performance, as manufacturing processes may differ among different manufacturers, leading to variations in compatibility and performance. If you need to mix devices of different brands, compatibility tests should be conducted before the integration is complete.
Integrating transmitters/receivers made by different manufacturers in your system is not recommended since they are designed and manufactured differently.
Only a few high-end DisplayPort extenders possess durability and weather-resistance features. If there is a requirement for outdoor audiovisual extension, placing the extender in a waterproof and dustproof enclosure is recommended to ensure its regular operation.
Yes, you can use a device that supports HDBaseT input on the receiver side. The HDBaseT transmitter can directly send signals to your HDBaseT device without receivers. Devices like projectors and monitors with HDBaseT input ports are often used.
Since HDBaseT transmits uncompressed, zero-latency video, it requires a higher bandwidth: 4K 30Hz video requires 10.2Gbps and 4K 60Hz 18Gbps. Consequently, we recommend that you use Cat6a or better cables. In addition, you can visit the website of HDBaseT Alliance to learn more about certified cables, which ensures the most efficient transmission.
