BZBGEAR HDMI Extenders: Long on Distance, Short on Cost
What are HDMI extenders and why would you need one? HDMI cables generally only travel 50 feet before signal degradation occurs. This means the maximum distance from your cable box to your TV should not exceed 50 feet. However, many applications require signals to travel longer distances without losing quality and stability.
Introducing our new HDMI extenders: BZB-EXHD and BZB-EXH-50. Solutions for 1080p and 4K signal extension, respectively. Let’s start with BZB-EXHD. This HDMI extender delivers a clean HD 1080p picture over distances of 164 feet (50 meters) using a Cat5e/6 cable. It consists of two units: a transmitter unit and receiver unit. The transmitter connects to your source (e.g., cable box) while the receiver connects to your TV.
In environments where 4K resolution is not quite needed, the BZB-EXHD is ideal for those secondary areas in residential homes like kitchens, garages, bathrooms, or guest rooms. It's also great for budget-conscious commercial places like sports bars. Many times sports bars have TVs out on the patio or in game rooms where 4K resolutions are not necessary. The BZB-EXHD HDMI extender will still deliver an amazing HD signal at a lower cost while satisfying customers who are typically balancing bar activities.
Now for crucial viewing areas where 4K can benefit, the BZB-EXH-50 is your answer. This HDMI extender sends signals 164 feet (50 meters) as well but supports 4K/HDR at 18Gbps and uses a Cat6 cable. It is also HDMI 2.0, HDCP 2.2/HDCP 1.4, and DVI 1.0 compliant.
Both the BZB-EXHD and BZB-EXH-50 have IR control and support DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD audio formats. They also have an HDMI loop out where you can loop the input source signal from the transmitter unit to another local display or even an HDMI switcher.
Check out our video above as we demo both HDMI extenders. We connected the BZB-EXH-50 to three TVs using Cat6 cables at varying lengths: 100 feet, 150 feet, and 180 feet. Although the max distance is specified at 164 feet, we wanted to show how well our HDMI extender works. Even at 16 feet over the specs, we still have exceptional picture without issues.
We pride ourselves in taking good care of our customers. To assure peace of mind, the BZB-EXHD and BZB-EXH-50 HDMI extenders are backed by a solid two-year hassle free warranty along with free expert tech support seven days a week.
