The ARD-0301-A01-TX incorporates HDBaseT technology to eliminate multiple cable runs and signal degradation that can occur with transmission of signals over long distances using traditional VGA and HDMI cables. Thus, the ARD-0301-A01-TX is a cost-effective solution to this common issue. Additionally, easy-to-terminate category cable (Cat5e/Cat6)) provides additional integration benefits.

The ARD-0301-A01-TX features two HDMI inputs plus a VGA input and a 3.5mm audio input connector as well as a Power over HDBaseT output. The unit combines the benefits of a switcher featuring integrated auto switching with the advantages of long-distance HDBaseT signal extension over a single Cat5e/6 cable.

The ARD-0301-A01-TX supports HDMI video signals up to 1080p/60Hz with embedded audio. VGA input signals up to 1920×1200 video can be extended up to 330 feet (100 meters). The ARD-0301-A01-TX also provides Power over Ethernet to power an HDBaseT receiver. The ARD-0301-A01-TX provides convenient input access for up to three devices with controls for input selection.
