RGB Spectrum Introduces a New 4K Extender with Integrated USB Control

ALAMEDA, California – February 16, 2021. RGB Spectrum has announced a new model of 4K extender with integrated USB control. CAT-Linx 2 Plus extenders transmit high-resolution signals up to 100 meters using conventional CAT 6/7 cable. CAT-Linx 2 Plus also provides transparent USB extension for KVM control of remote devices. State-of-the-art technology delivers visually lossless compression when transmitting a 4K 60Hz 4:4:4 signal.

For installation ease and convenience, CAT-Linx 2 Plus extenders have integrated power to supply endpoints over the same CATx cable that carries the video and data signals. This eliminates the need for external power connections. A CAT-Linx 2 pair needs only one power supply connected to the transmitter to power both devices.

CAT-Linx 2 Plus extenders support HDCP 2.2, HDR, and multi-channel audio. In addition to built-in KVM control of remote devices, the signal extenders can control display devices using IR pass-through and bidirectional RS-232 signal transmission.
