Kramer KIT-401

4K Auto–Switcher/Scaler Kit over Long–Reach HDBaseT

Categories: , Tag:


KIT−401 is a high−performance auto−switcher/scaler kit for 4K HDMI™ and VGA over long−reach HDBaseT. The kit includes the KIT−401T wall−plate transmitter/switcher and the KIT−400R receiver/scaler. The KIT−401T transmitter converts the user−selected input signal into the transmitted HDBaseT signal. The KIT−400R receiver receives the HDBaseT signal, converts it to HDMI and up− or down−scales the picture to match the resolution of the HDMI monitor. KIT−401 extends video signals to up to 40m (130ft) over CAT copper cables at up to 4K@60Hz (4:2:0) 24bpp video resolution and provides even further reach for lower HD video resolutions.
