ATEN Extends HDBaseT Line with Cost Effective HDBaseT-Lite Video Extender Series

ATEN, the leading provider of IT connectivity and management solutions, today announced the immediate release of its second series of HDBaseT-certified extenders.

ATEN’s new HDBaseT-Lite Series are HDBaseT Class B solutions with a transmission distance of up to 70 meters. The HDBaseT Lite series boasts a comprehensive set of features teamed with an affordable price, perfectly complementing ATEN’s existing Class A line (up to 100m).

“We are today extending our line of HDBaseT products to ensure that our customers have a comprehensive range of solutions at their disposal. The HDBaseT-Lite Series provides a cost-effective solution for a wide range of industry applications with the same commitment to quality that ATEN is renowned for.” – Kevin Chen, President of ATEN International.

ATEN’s new HDBaseT-Lite Series consists of three models designed to suit a range of applications and budgets:

  • VE802: HDMI HDBaseT-Lite Extender with POH
  • VE801: HDMI HDBaseT-Lite Extender
  • VE601: DVI HDBaseT-Lite Extender

Of the HDBaseT-Lite Series, the VE802 HDMI HDBaseT-Lite Extender with POH offers the most extensive set of features. The POH (Power over HDBaseT) function allows power to be transmitted from transmitter to receiver via the Cat 5e/6a cable, simplifying cable deployments and reducing installation costs as the receiver requires no additional power source. The VE802 also has a bi-directional RS-232 serial port and a bi-directional IR Channel port for control and configuration. For more basic A/V extension applications, the VE801 provides similar functionality to the VE802 but without the added features of POH, IR, and RS-232 support. Alternatively, the VE601 is a perfect fit for applications which require a DVI-compliant extender. All models include interference-resistant technology and support resolutions up to 4K.
