The HDC-TH221UHD is a two-input transmitter with EDID emulator for sending HDMI, DVI, and HDBaseT input signals at up to 4K@60 over a Category cable without compression or processing.

Input video signals are converted to HDBaseT format and can be transmitted up to 100 m (328 ft.); 1080p (24 bit) video signals can be sent up to 150 m (492 ft.) in Long reach mode.

The HDC-TH221UHD includes one HDMI output and two HDBaseT outputs. The HDMI OUT1 enables down conversion outputting 4K input video at 1080p automatically depending on sink device status. The two video inputs can be controlled by the front panel or an external controller.

The HDC-TH221UHD also features Daisy chain for extending and distributing video, audio, and control signals. In addition, digital audio signals can be de-embedded onto the analog output signals. It supports bidirectional RS-232C communication and LAN transmission.

    • 4K@60 : when IDK’s 18 Gbps supported cable was used and signals of 4K@60 24 bit/pixel (8 bit/component) was input or output
    • The maximum cable distance depends on the connected devices. The distance may not be extended with some device combinations, cabling method, or other manufacturer’s cable. Video may be disturbed or may not be output even if signals are within the range mentioned above.
  • (*10) The maximum transmission distance was obtained when IDK’s CAT.5E HDC cable was used. The distance may not be extended with some device combinations, cabling method, or other manufacturer’s cable. Video may be disturbed or may not be output even if signals are within the range mentioned above. The maximum transmission distance is the shorter distance of connected HDBaseT product or sink device’s maximum transmission distance. Up to 492 ft. (150 m): 1080p (24 bit) in Long reach mode. For Long reach mode, use IDK’s HDBaseT Products that supports 328 ft. (100 m) or longer.
