Features

Overview: The Simplified MFG EX2ARC 18Gbps HDMI extender features an HDMI Transmitter (TX) and Receiver (RX) module that lets you extend 4K HDMI signals up to 295', via a CAT5e or CAT6 connection (sold separately). Multifunction ARC/eARC lets you return audio back to the Transmitter from a display connected to the Receiver module. The EX2ARC also supports bi-directional IR and RS-232 control.

Supported Video Resolutions: The EX2ARC HDMI extender is HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 compliant, making it capable of passing most any type of video signal. It supports 18Gbps bandwidth for HDR 8/10/10+ and Dolby Vision, as well as the entire HDMI 2.0b standard. Supported video formats and resolutions include:

Transmission Distance:

  • 4K: Up to 295' (90m)
  • 1080p: Up to 330' (100m)

Video Connections: The EX2ARC Transmitter includes an HDMI In for connecting a playback device such as a Blu-ray player or Cable/Satellite box. The HDMI Receiver includes a single HDMI Out for connection to a TV or display panel. Signal transmission between the Transmitter and the Receiver is made using CAT5e or CAT6 cable (sold separately) connected to each module's HDBaseT port.

Audio Connections: An Optical (S/PDIF) Audio Out and an Analog 3.5mm Audio Out on the Transmitter provide the ARC/eARC audio return signal. The Transmitter can also be set to pass the audio extracted from the HDMI In port on the Transmitter instead of from the Receiver. Selections for the audio type are made using the front-panel Function button on both the Receiver and the Transmitter. The Receiver module also includes an Optical (S/PDIF) input for returning audio back to the Transmitter when the connected display panel doesn't support the ARC/eARC feature.

Supported Audio Formats:

  • HDMI Out (Receiver): LPCM 2.0/2.1/5.1/6.1/7.1, Dolby Digital, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus (DD+), DTS-ES, DTS HD Master, DTS HD-HRA, DTS-X.
  • S/PDIF Audio Out (Transmitter): LPCM 2.0, Dolby Digital/Plus, DTS.
  • 3.5mm Analog Audio Out (Transmitter): PCM 2.0

Control:

  • IR: The Simplified MFG EX2ARC supports bi-directional infrared control signals, letting you send IR signals over CAT5e or CAT6 cable to control devices on both ends of the system. 3.5mm IR In and IR Out jacks on both the Transmitter and Receiver let you use the two included IR Receivers and IR Blasters for controlling a connected playback device on the Transmitter and a TV or monitor connected to the Receiver.
  • RS-232: Both the EX2ARC Transmitter and Receiver modules include a 3-pin Euroblock (Phoenix) connector for bi-directional RS-232 commands, letting you connect an optional third-party RS-232 controller to either module and control a connected device on the opposite end.

PoE: The EX2ARC Transmitter and Receiver include 24VDC power inputs for connecting the included AC power supply (24VDC/1A output). Only one module, Transmitter or Receiver, will require a power connection and will supply power to the other module via PoE (Power over Ethernet) through the connected CAT5e/6 cable.

Service Port: The Simplified MFG EX2ARC Transmitter and Receiver both include a front-panel micro-B USB Service Port for updating the firmware.
