Based on the award-winning EVEXHDB2, distributors and dealers can now choose from two value-priced full 4K and HDR extender solutions

Batavia, IL – November 7, 2017 –

Vanco International LLC, an industry leader in AV distribution and electronic accessory products, announces two new HDBaseT™ 4K HDR extenders, the Evolution™ EVEX4K50, and Vanco® HDBT4K50. Modeled after the award-winning Evolution EVEXHDB2 extender, the EVEX4K50 and HDBT4K50 offer great value for distributors and dealers looking to extend full 4K and HDR in both residential and commercial installations.

“Following the tremendous success of the EVEXHDB2, our distributors and dealers requested that we expand our line of HDR extenders,” said Mark Corbin, vice president of distribution markets for Vanco International. “The HDBT4K50 and EVEX4K50 provide installers with all of the important features and connection options they need for a variety of applications, and at lower price points. We now have an extender solution for every installation type and budget.”

Featuring a slim and compact design, the HDBT4K50 and EVEX4K50 are ideal solutions for even the tightest installations, and equipped with the latest HDBaseT technology, both extenders are optimized for whole-home or commercial distribution. Compared to standard HDMI cables, the HDBT4K50 and EVEX4K50 are able to distribute high-definition signals across much greater distances. The transmission range of both products extends 4Kx2K@60Hz, 4:4:4 with HDR up to 164ft/50m over a single Cat5e/6 cable and 1080p@60Hz up to 230ft/70m – providing virtually lossless compression that retains high-end audio and video quality right to the source.

The HDBT4K50 and EVEX4K50 are HDCP 2.2 compliant and backwards compatible to previous versions. Each extender ships with a single DC 12V, 2A power supply used for use with either the Transmitter or Receiver. Thanks to Power over Cable technology, (PoC), the EVEX4K50 and HDBT4K50 are able to transmit power over Cat5e or Cat6, eliminating the need for a second power supply. To ensure a smooth plug and play installation, Auto EDID and EQ Management is also included.

Both extenders also offer CEC support and bi-directional IR control for instantaneous response time. For installations that demand a hardwired connection, the EVEX4K50 adds RS232 control and ships with two RS232 cables.

Pre-orders for the EVEX4K50 and HDBT4K50 are available immediately and both products will begin shipping in November. Interested distributors can contact Vanco International directly for pricing.
