Siemon's news MAX® HDMI Adapter Extender Cable

Siemon has launched a new MAX® HDMI Adapter Extender Cable in Africa, which provides an easy pass-through connection for extending cables from LCD projectors, high-definition video monitors and digital displays to an HDMI interface mounted in a Siemon MAX series faceplate.

The MAX® HDMI Adapter Extender Cable fits into a single 2-port opening on all Siemon MAX series faceplates or modular furniture adapters and can be mounted alongside other types of Siemon MAX or Z-MAX outlets. It is ideal for use in conference rooms, classrooms, retail shops or any other space requiring an accessible interface for connecting laptops, DVRs or other video controllers to ceiling or wall-mounted video monitors, projectors or digital signage.

The new HDMI adapter extender cable features a female HDMI MAX connector on one end with a short pigtail to a standard female HDMI connector on the other. The pigtail extends the HDMI connection outside of the outlet box, eliminating the current management and bend radius challenges associated with larger diameter HDMI cables. Front faceplate installation offers fast, easy deployment without faceplate removal, while the flat or angled mount position allows for easy access.

“With the development of Siemon’s new MAX® HDMI Adapter Extender Cable we have successfully managed to address common problems associated with the use of thicker HDMI cables and are now offering an improved, easier to handle pass-through connection for HD video displays”, says Lee Funnell, Technical Manager at Siemon. “The reliable, high-performance connection delivers low loss, uncompressed 720p or 1080p high definition video and audio.”

Available in six different bezel colours to match any decor, Siemon’s MAX® HDMI Adapter Extender Cable supports HDMI V1.3 applications at 340 MHz (10.2 Gb/s) for a higher resolution of 2560 x 1600, including 720p and 1080p, Dolby TrueHD, Blu-Ray, HD DVD and DVD-Audio.
