The VHU-8x includes 8 VHT-URx HDBaseT Class C + DSC Receivers.
Note: When passing an IR signal from the control processor to the VHU-8x the OPT-1x is required. Sold separately.
Included in the box:
VHU-8x, VXT-URx HDBaseT Receivers (8), IR Emitters (8), IR Receivers (8), OPT-1x IR Adapter Cable (4), RJ45 Tips (10), Phoenix Connectors (8), Rack Mounting Kit (1), Power Cable (1)
Enjoy pristine, high-contrast pictures with 4K UHD resolution and High Dynamic Range.
The pinnacle of video distribution quality ensures natural colors with no color subsampling and 60Hz refresh rate for blur-free fast motions.
Don’t worry about strict limitations in distance. 4K video can be transmitted over HDBaseT cable up to 328ft/100m and 1080p even farther up to 492ft/150m.
No bottleneck for the latest 60Hz HDR-10 and Dolby Vision content that requires the highest possible bandwidth that currently exists.
Avoid black screens when connecting an HDMI source using full HDCP 2.2 compliance with the latest anti-piracy algorithms.
Display Stream Compression
Don’t make compromises in picture quality. The DSC compression algorithm doesn’t strip out any color information or pixels and brings your video visually lossless to the display.
Get rid of extra power supplies for HDBaseT receivers. Remote devices can be powered over the HDBaseT cable.
Watch TV or movies in 5.1 Dolby or DTS audio by sending the TV audio to an AVR located up to 328ft/100m away.
Use the best possible audio quality and extract the audio signals from a source device and send multi-channel 5.1 audio to a local AVRs.
Install complex technology as hassle-free as possible. The built-in diagnostics let you check the quality of the cable connection, HDBaseT connectivity and even cable lengths.
