Niles Audio Corporation, The First Name in Custom Installation, has announced its line of HDMI CAT-5 Baluns have been named the recipient of the Audioholics Consumer Electronics Award in the “Baluns & Cat5e/6 Solutions” category. Available in component-style and wall-mount models, Niles HDMI CAT-5 Baluns are compliant with HDMI version 1.3, which enables next generation HDTVs, PCs, DVRs and DVD players to transmit and display content in billions of colors with unprecedented vividness and accuracy. This provides integrators with a solution that utilizes the latest technology for installations already pre-wired with CAT-5 cable. The new HDMI models feature active circuitry that provides the flexibility to place the power supply at either end of the cable run, whichever makes the most sense for the installation.
“To have our HDMI Cat-5 Baluns honored as a winner of the Audioholics Consumer Electronics Award exemplifies Niles’ commitment to providing custom installation professionals the best in application-specific products,” said Frank Sterns, president of Niles Audio. “Niles’ HDMI Cat-5 Baluns provide a reliable solution for distributing HDMI signals–such as those found in Blu-ray players and satellite receivers–over cost-effective Cat-5 cabling. Additionally, the flexible design architecture enables professional systems integrators to easily mix and match chassis and wall-mount versions to accommodate for any installation scenario.”
Niles’ HDMI Baluns convert high-definition audio and video signals to balanced circuit topology enabling the signals to be transmitted over long runs of low cost CAT-5/CAT-6 cabling. Operating in pairs, baluns require both a transmitter and a receiver with the transmitter typically located near the source component and the receiver located near a flat panel display. Sold individually, Niles HDMI CAT-5 Baluns provide transmitters and receivers in both component style and wall-mount versions providing the installer with the flexibility to specify the optimum configuration for any location. HDMI CAT-5 Baluns utilize dual runs of CAT-5 cabling to support HDMI signal transmission of up to 100 feet for 1080P resolution. Lower resolutions can be transmitted over even longer runs.
