Key Digital’s HDBaseT Extenders Offer Ease of Integration and Uncompressed Content in Digital Signage Applications

Full-Buffer System Comes Standard with KD-X222 and KD-X222PO

MOUNT VERNON, NY – October 5, 2017 –The award winning manufacturer of professional A/V and Control systems introduce KD-X222 and KD-X222PO HDBaseT extender sets. These extension kits transmit UHD 4K/30 4:4:4 and UHD 4K/60 4:2:0 signals up to 125' using CAT5e/6 UTP/STP cabling. For non-4K applications 1080p/60 signals can be extended up to 230', making these extender sets ideal for Digital Signage applications where monitors are installed significant distances away from the centralized equipment location. KD-X222 and KD-X222PO HDBaseT extender sets complement Key Digital’s full circle video distribution for single and/or multi source display configurations

“Key Digital’s powerful product ecosystem is designed around digital signage content from an external video source such as digital signage player or Windows PC or Apple computer, with HDMI output connectivity being fed into a digital video distribution amplifier,” said Jonathon Ferry, Key Digital’s National Training Manager. “Key Digital’s proprietarily full buffer technology enables multiple distribution amplifiers to be cascaded strategically to support hundreds of displays in digital signage applications such as advertising, retail show rooms, corporate messaging, and transportation. From the centralized equipment rack, KD-X222 and KD-X222PO carry 4K and 1080P video and audio to a single display or to a cluster of many displays through integration with additional distribution amplifiers. The resulting system is easy to manage and cost effective.”

For digital signage applications requiring a control system, a perfect solution is Key Digital’s Compass Control Pro. Compass Control Pro is a fully integrated control system built from the ground up to use iOS & Android devices to replace traditional control interfaces. The cost-effective software suite excels in video control functionality, a key element in the proliferation of digital signage and video collaboration.

KD-X222 and KD-X222PO are sold as a Tx + Rx set. All models feature EDID and Control professional tool suites. Integrators have the choice of EDID handshake delivered to the connected video source. Each Tx unit may extend RS-232 to the connected monitor/projector or be set as a controllable device for collecting connectivity status. For ease of installation KD-X222PO feature Power over HDBaseT extension from Tx to Rx.
