There are so many different brands in the Pro AV market. Many manufactures and consumers only take pricing into their crucial consideration. At AceProAV, we dedicate to use innovation, creativity, and decades of experience to provide an affordable solution that doesn’t sacrifice quality. We also love to share the Pro AV knowledge with you so that you could choose the appropriate devices to customize your home entertainment.


Uncompressed 4K Signal

The normal HDMI extenders over Cat5e/Cat6 cable only supports HDMI 1.3 features, which delivers 1080p Full HD resolution. The HDBaseT technology designed to enhance the efficiency and stability of the HDMI signal transmission. So, by using the same quality Cat5e/Cat6 cable, the HDBaseT HDMI extender could support all HDMI 1.4 features, which delivers uncompressed 4K@60Hz (4:2:0) resolution.

However, the 4K HDR content becomes very common nowadays, we understand the HDMI 1.4 features cannot fulfill people who really enjoy the more realistic presence audio-visual entertainment. So, we also developed an HDBaseT HDMI extender to lossless compression HDMI 2.0 content to extend the near uncompressed 4K HDR signal.


Long Transmission Range

We all know that there is an attenuation coefficient in any electronic transmission, and It's even more obvious at high resolution (frequency). So, the HDBaseT extender re-organizes the HDMI signal to reduce the attenuation coefficient and most of the interference.

AceProAV HDBaseT HDMI extender provides a much longer 1080p resolution transmission distance than the normal one, also compatible with 4K HDR resolution up to 130ft (40m), which is enough to fulfill most family audio-visual entertainment needs. The best of all, a stable transmission means better enjoyment. No one likes watching choppy flicker or strange color screens, especially in the exciting moment.


Flexibility for Modern Home Entertainment

Are you willing to purchase four sets of Apple TV, Roku, Gaming Console, and satellite box for each of your living room, home theater, kitchen, and bedrooms? Probably not, it cost extremely high, besides the connected cables may mess up your home decoration. So, what is the ideal solution for 4K HDR home entertainment?

Central Management & Smart Scaling will be the best solution for your home entertainment, which means you could manage all source devices at a single location, and control it from the chosen places through AceProAV HDMI 2.0 4x4 Matrix Switch and HDBaseT 4K HDR extenders.


Central Management System

HDMI 2.0 4x4 Matrix Switch can distribute any four connected HDMI sources to four displays or just distributes one source to chosen displays. Then, HDBaseT HDMI Extenders deliver the signal to your home theater in the basement, or your bedroom on the second floor includes IR passthrough via a single Cat5e/Cat6 cable, which means you could control the sources from the chosen place.

Smart Scaling – Don’t sacrifice 4K enjoyment for the legacy displays

We do understand that not every display in your home is the same, so AceProAV smart scaling technology will automatically identify each display’s maximum resolution before sending the appropriate resolution to them.

Remember, no matter how many audiovisual zones you want to build, the HDBaseT technology is one of the best solutions. If you are too busy to study the applications, please don’t hesitate to let us know the ultimate goal you want to achieve. We are happy to help.
