Connectivity solutions provider Gefen has announced the formal recognition of its HDMI Cat-5 Extreme as one of Electronic House magazine’s Products of the Year for 2006.
Distinguished from among hundreds of entries, Gefen’s HDMI Cat-5 Extreme is a sender/receiver extension system that sends HD video and digital audio up to 200ft. using industry-standard Cat-5e cabling.
This method allows HDMI sources to supercede the limitation of the HDMI specification, and deliver HDCP-compliant resolutions (up to 1080p) plus multichannel digital audio to any remotely located HDMI projector or display.
Through a democratic voting process, involving editors from Electronic House and three related publications, winning products were selected based on criteria ranging from innovative features to customer reviews.
“Our decisions are based on product demos, talking with installers and users, and sometimes going out on a limb for products we found to be promising,” says Editor-in-Chief Cindy Davis.
“Topping our list of criteria is technological innovation, combined with overall value—and just plain outstanding features.”
