WITH INTRODUCTION OF HDMI MODELS, NILES PROVIDES INTEGRATORS AN EXPANDED, UP-TO-DATE ASSORTMENT OF CAT-5 BALUNS
New HDMI Baluns Provide Leading-Edge Connectivity Solutions for Installations
Requiring Signal Disribution Over Long Distances
MIAMI, FLORIDA – September 4, 2008 – Niles Audio Corporation, The First Name in Custom Installation®, has expanded its line of CAT-5 Baluns to include HDMI connectivity solutions for installations requiring extended signal runs over long distances. 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.
"Niles new HDMI CAT-5 Baluns provide custom installation professionals with a complete and up-to-date assortment of CAT-5 balun solutions," said Mike "Sparky" Detmer, vice president of sales and marketing for Niles. "Niles HDMI CAT-5 Baluns offer integrators the perfect balance between performance and flexibility, so they always have the ideal connectivity solution for any project," Detmer added.
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
componentstyle 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 ft. for 1080P resolution. Lower resolutions can
be transmitted over even longer runs. The HDMI CAT-5 Baluns retail at $249.95 each with initial
shipments expected to begin October 2008.
