Kramer Presents Trailblazing 4K HDR Extension Technology at ISE 2018

Kramer Electronics Ltd. is proud to announce that the second generation of its ground-breaking extension technology, DGKat™ 2.0, is available now and showcasing at ISE 2018.

DGKat™ 2.0 is featured in the Kramer PT-871/872 transmitter and receiver pair. They support 4K HDR, HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 signals and 2-way powering over twisted pair. This compact extension solution delivers video signals up to 40m (130ft) over Kramer CAT copper cables at up to [email protected] (4:4:4) 24bpp video resolution. They support deep color, x.v.Color™, lip sync, HDMI uncompressed audio channels, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD, 2K, 4K, and 3D. EDID signals are passed through from the source to the display.

Designed for installation simplicity, they require only a single cable for both the signal and the power. PT-871/872 also boast Kramer Intelligent EDID Processing™ ensuring plug and play operation for the HDMI source and display systems with no need for additional configuration. Status LED indicators for HDMI and DGKat™ 2.0 ports facilitate easy local maintenance and troubleshooting.
