HAE 100 4K

The Extron HAE 100 is an audio de-embedder that extracts the audio from the HDMI signal and provides outputs for analog stereo and digital S/PDIF audio. The HAE 100 supports data rates up to 6.75 Gbps for compatibility with HDMI Deep Color up to 12-bit. It is HDCP compliant and compatible with HDTV 1080p/60 or computer-video resolutions up to 1920x1200. The HAE 100 is equipped with several integrator-friendly features, including 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.

EDID Minder® automatically manages EDID communication between the input source and the display, ensuring the source powers up properly and reliably delivers content to the display. Input cable equalization compensates for weak source signals or signal loss when using long input cable assemblies.

LEDs on the front panel offer comprehensive, real-time device status monitoring, including HDMI input / output and audio output signal presence, HDCP authentication, and whether the extracted audio is two-channel PCM or encoded bitstream audio for Dolby® Digital or DTS® Digital Surround. A mini USB port on the front panel provides convenient access for device configuration. The HAE 100 is housed in a compact 1U, quarter rack width metal enclosure.
