Binary 540 Series 4K Ultra HD HDBaseT Extender with IR, RS-232

Missing all your favorite features from our old B-500 extender? The new Binary B-540’s got all of that, plus a little extra. This HDBaseT™ extender transmits up to 4K@60Hz video (compatible with HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2) and 7.1 channels of lossless audio – all up to 230′ over a single Cat 5e/6 cable. Bi-directional Power over Cable (POC) eliminates the need to fit a bulky power supply behind the TV, saving valuable install time, while “plug and play” technology bypasses frustrating EQ and EDID settings. Plus, you get robust control system integration that includes but bi-directional IR and RS-232. Now that’s impressive. This extender supports 4K@30 Hz (4:4:4) and 4K@60 Hz (4:2:0) resolutions

HDBaseT No Video – HDBaseT requires that connected equipment support what is known as Clock Stretching. While this feature was a requirement starting with HDMI 1.3, not all HDMI 1.3 products support it, and it was not a requirement for HDMI 1.2, which is still used in many set top boxes and AVRs. No video may appear if the devices connected to HDBaseT extenders do not support Clock Stretching.Fortunately there is a simple work around that will allow HDBaseT to work with these products. If you don’t require 4K, we recommend using an extender like the B-520-EXT-330-RS-IP or B-520-EXT-230-RS.

Power Supply Voltage – Use the power supply included in the box. Using a different voltage power supply with Binary products will result in damage to the product and possibly the power supply. Be sure to use the correct power supply with the correct product!
Shielded Cable Recommendation – Although HDBaseT transmission technology is much less susceptible to EMI interference than other transmission technologies, if possible, it is recommended that you pull shielded Cat5e/Cat6 with this product for maximum reliability. Please note: for proper shielding, shielded connectors must be used with drains connected at both ends. In addition, “EZ end” connectors are not recommended for use with HDMI extenders.
Clock Stretching Solutions – We offer simple workarounds for compatibility between newer HDBaseT products and older sources. Clock stretching solutions for full HD 1080p sources still include the B-520-EXT-330-RS-IP or B-520-EXT-230-RS HDBaseT extenders. Alternatively, if you use the B-540-TX-330-IR and connect it to the source via the B-230-HDSPLTR-1×2 (1080p splitter), this will also solve any clock stretching issues.

4K Ultra HD with Full 3D Support

This extender offers full support of 4K@30Hz (including HDMI® with 3D), Deep Color (36bit), as well as support for Dolby® True HD, Dolby® Digital Plus, DTS™-HD Master and LPCM audio formats. This product is compatible with HDMI 2.0/ HDCP 2.2 products as well. This extender supports 4K@30 Hz (4:4:4) and 4K@60 Hz (4:2:0) resolutions.
Please note, 4K support varies by distance and cable type. Please refer to specifications for further details.

Benefits of HDBaseT Technology

The cornerstone of HDBaseT technology is 5Play – a feature set that extends full uncompressed HD video, audio, POC (power over cable), and a host of control signals (bi-directional IR, RS-232,), all through a single CAT5e/6 LAN cable up to 230 ft. It has greater RF immunity, so you get a better and more reliable signal, plus it’s easier to install because you don’t have to fiddle with any EQ or EDID settings. Just plug and play and you’re on your way to faster and easier media distribution.

Bi-Directional Power over Cable (POC)

No room for a bulky power supply behind the TV or in a rack? Not a problem. With Bi-Directional Power over Cable (POC), you can send power over the same Cat5e/6 cable that extends your video, audio, and control signals. This means you only need one power supply – and you can put it at the head end or display to get it completely out of the way. Plus, the extender features screw-down power plugs, so you never have to worry about getting service calls because a plug fell out when the TV was moved. Now those are some real reasons to celebrate!

Complete Control with Bi-Directional IR & RS-232

Thanks to bi-directional IR and RS-232, you get no-hassle integration with a variety of control systems, and you can easily send IR signals from the TV location back to cable boxes, DVD players, and other source equipment at the head end. The IR connections feature active circuitry that supports a wide variety of IR and control system types.

Easy Firmware Upgrades

You never know what new TV or BluRay player is going to throw you a curve ball. Upgradable firmware gives our software team the ability to update the system to handle any “gotchas.” Just flip the switch on the RS-232 port and upgrade on-site.

Removable Mounting Ears

Space is tight. That’s why this extender comes with removable mounting ears, making it easier to mount in small spaces – like behind the TV or in a breadbox. Also, the unit is designed for optimum heat dissipation capability so it always keeps its cool.

Work Smarter, Not Harder

Forget about wasting precious install time running back and forth, fiddling with transmitter and receiver settings, and struggling to get a good picture. With this extender kit there are no EQ or EDID settings required – all you do is plug and play. Now that’s smart!

Built-In ESD and Surge Protection

Intelligent circuit design, perfected through extensive hardware testing, has resulted in a robust product with excellent ESD and surge protection that exceeds CE Level 3 standards. During development, every connection was tortured with an ESD gun and a lightning simulator. They were hit with ESD at 15KV and surges up to 1600V. More importantly, though, they each lived to tell about it!
