Anaheim, California (February 3, 2016) - Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce the HAE 100 4K, an audio de-embedder that extracts the audio from an HDMI signal, including audio from 4K sources. The HAE 100 4K provides an analog output for stereo or dual mono signals, as well as a S/PDIF digital audio output that supports two-channel or digital multi-channel signals. It is HDCP compliant, supports data rates up to 10.2 Gbps, and is compatible with video resolutions up to 4K. The HAE 100 4K is equipped with several integrator-friendly features such as a buffered HDMI video output with EDID Minder for simplified EDID management between the input source and the display, plus input cable equalization and comprehensive LED status display.

"Since many professional audio devices do not accept an HDMI input signal, there is a need to split off the audio portion of the signal in order to route it to the audio system," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "The HAE 100 4K provides the flexible integration capabilities of the popular HAE 100 audio de‑embedder, while adding support for 4K video resolutions."

The HAE 100 4K offers several features that enhance and simplify AV system integration. To compensate for signal loss over long input cables, incoming HDMI signals are equalized up to 50 feet (15 meters) at 4K or 100 feet (30 meters) at 1080p/60 when used with Extron HDMI Pro cables. LEDs on the front panel offer comprehensive, real-time device status monitoring, including HDMI input, HDMI output, and audio output signal presence, HDCP authentication, and the format of the extracted audio. The HAE 100 4K is housed in a compact 1" (2.5 cm) high, quarter rack width metal enclosure that enables simple and discreet mounting in a range of environments.
