Single Cat.5e/Cat.6 Cable + Easy Installation = tvONE HDMI HDBaseT-Lite Solution

Margate, Kent, UK, 24 October 2013 – tvONE (, a leading designer and manufacturer of cutting-edge video and multimedia processing equipment, is pleased to announce the new 1T-CT-640 HDBaseT-Lite series HDMI extension solution.

1T-CT-640 HDMI over Single Cat.5e/Cat.6 series constitutes a system used to transmit HDMI v1.4 signals using HDBaseT-Lite technology to allow transmission of uncompressed, 1080p high definition television signals over a single Cat.5e or Cat.6 cable (this is the type of cable typically employed for Ethernet computer networks). HDMI v1.4 signals - including 3D and 4k UHD formats - are supported and the system will also allow DVI signal transmission with appropriate DVI to HDMI Cable adapters. In addition, embedded LPCM 7.1CH, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD Master Audio capability is standard.  

1T-CT-640 series is comprised of the 1T-CT-641 Transmitter and the 1T-CT-642 Receiver (each purchased separately). The 1T-CT-641/1T-CT-642 system can achieve signal distribution distances of up to 60 meters (197 feet) for uncompressed HDMI signals without signal degradation. A screw on power adapter cable prevents inadvertent disconnection of power.

If additional installation flexibility is needed, the 1T-CT-647 HDMI to 7-Output Cat.5e/Cat.6 transmitter is also available to send HDMI or DVI signal to remote devices, using single Cat.5e/Cat.6 cables. The 1T-CT-647 is compatible with the 1T-CT-642 receiver.
