Leading AV distribution innovator, Blustream, today announced it is shipping its new uncompressed, unconverted 18Gbps HDMI over HDBaseT extender set, ideal for residential and commercial installations demanding the highest possible quality.

“The zero-compression HEX18G-KIT is designed for applications that demand the absolute highest video quality, from the luxury home theater to the executive boardroom,” said Martyn Shirley, Blustream General Manager. “By delivering full 18Gbps HDMI 2.0 video and audio over a single Cat6a cable, the HEX18G-IT offers true uncompressed and unconverted performance.”
The HEX18G-KIT supports the HDMI 2.0 18Gbps specification, including 4K 60Hz 4:4:4 UHD video, and HDCP 2.3/2.2.
