VuWall Launches New HDMI Extenders Based on Semtech’s AVX Technology
The new line showcases a new shift in AV extension technologies
CAMARILLO, Calif., Oct. 21, 2021 – Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading global supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced its collaboration with VuWall, a technology leader in video wall control systems and unified visualization solutions, for its new line of HDMI extenders. The extenders are robust to electromagnetic interference (EMI), feature guaranteed cable lengths based on the IEEE standard and are available in copper and fiber. VuWall selected Semtech’s AVX™ technology for its long reach performance and its ability to dramatically reduce both product and system costs.
“Upon developing our next generation of HDMI extenders, it was imperative that VuWall collaborate with the best in the professional AV industry, which is why we chose to base our new line of extenders on Semtech’s AVX technology,” said Mark Schmidt, chief technology officer at VuWall. “Through implementing AVX into the HDMI extenders, VuWall is taking the next step into modern and best-in-class AV extension technologies, a milestone made possible by collaborating with Semtech.”
As newer AV extension technologies emerge, Semtech’s AVX200T pushes the envelope on multimedia connectivity between AV equipment and remote displays. Additionally, AVX simultaneously transmits uncompressed-quality 4K video, multi-channel audio, Gigabit Ethernet, USB, and other control signals over copper category cabling or optical fiber. The advanced features of Semtech’s AVX serve as an ideal base for VuWall’s HDMI extenders.
“The unmatched capabilities of Semtech’s AVX technology is prominently showcased in VuWall’s new line of HDMI extenders,” said Don Shaver, vice president of video products for Semtech’s Signal Integrity Products Group. “On top of the attractive cost of the new line, VuWall’s HDMI extenders highlight the new shift forward in AV extension technologies for those looking for the best performance on the market today.”
VuWall’s HDMI 2.0 Extenders extend audio/video signals with CAT cable or optical fiber, supporting up to 4K@60Hz resolution (full 4:4:4), compliant with HDR and HDCP 2.2. Customers can distribute uncompressed video and audio, bringing ultra-high-definition video to screens with no signal loss or delay.
