4K Ultra HD HDMI Extenders
Gefen’s implementation of HDBaseT™ Technology
extends the possibilities of remote Ultra HD display
installation. HDMI resolutions up to 4K Ultra HD can
be combined with multichannel audio, 2-way
IR, RS-232 and Ethernet to assure full video signal
quality, audio content and source control.
4K resolutions can be extended up to 330 feet
(100m) on a single CAT-5e, 1080p Full HD up to 495
feet (150m). The compact chassis of the Senders
and Receivers connect with a single CAT5e/6
cable and use a single power supply to increase
design options and simplify installation.

This application, featuring the GTB-UHD2IRS-ELRPOL-BLK, adds additional transmission range and
RS-232 control to 4K Ultra HD and 1080p Full HD extension.
This ELR (Extra Long Range) 4K Ultra HD Extender with POL (Power Over Line) can transmit 4K Ultra/4K
Cinema HD video, LPCM 7.1 channel audio, Dolby® TrueHD, Dolby Digital® Plus and DTS-HD Master
Audio™, RS-232 and 2-way IR up to 330 feet (100m) over a single CAT-5e cable. 1080p Full HD can be
transmitted up to 495 feet (150m) via CAT-5e.
For greater control flexibility, in addition to 2-way IR, the GTB-UHD2IRS-ELRPOL-BLK also provides RS-232
control extension. Elements of automation can be incorporated by connecting an RS-232 controller
to the Sender and transmitting RS-232 commands to the Receiver for control of RS-232 devices
located near the Receiver.
In addition to RS-232 control, 2-way IR allows control of the Ultra HD source from the Receiver
location, or control of the display, (display ON/OFF, etc) or other IR controlled devices from the
Sender location.

Long Reach Mode - In the ON position, resolutions up to
1080p Full HD can be extended to a maximum distance of
495 feet (150m). In this configuration, color depth is limited
to 8-bit color. In the OFF position (default), all resolutions up
to 4K x 2K can be extended up to 330 feet (100m). 1080p
Full HD up to 12-bit Deep Color can also be extended up
to 330 feet (100m) in this configuration.

EDID Management - When Sender Switch 1 is in the ON
position, all video and audio features of the connected
device (display or other sink device) will be passed through
to the source. When Sender Switch 1 is in the OFF position,
the Sender copies and then modifies the downstream EDID
to support only up to 1080p60, 8-bit color in 'long-reach'
mode.
HPD Mode - Hot Plug Detect is an HDMI feature that
senses if the HDMI cable has been disconnected from the
source or display (sink device). When Sender Switch 1 is in
the OFF position, HPD will toggle, depending on the HPD
status of the display (sink) or source device. When Sender
Switch 1 is in the ON position, HPD is always high, even
when the display is hot-plugged (disconnected from, then
reconnected to the source device).

4K UHD DIGITAL SIGNAGE MEDIA PLAYER
This application distributes a single 4K Ultra HD video source to multiple 4K Ultra HD Displays by daisychaining multiple Gefen GTB-HD4K2K-142C-BLK two-way splitters. The source in the example is a 4K
Ultra HD digital signage media player, but could be any Ultra HD or HD source. The example shows an
application for the D-Lux Hotel lobby, displaying information about the day's schedule of events, with
the current screen calling attention to the hotel restaurant being open all day.
This is a very simple application to design and install. Simply connect the HDMI output on the source
to the HDMI input on Splitter 1. Connect one HDMI Out on Splitter 1 to a 4K Ultra HD display. Connect
the other HDMI Out on Splitter 1 to the HDMI In on Splitter 2 and repeat for the number of required
displays. Each 'split' in a daisy-chain or cascade system (page 4) is called a 'layer'. The maximum
number of layers for Gefen GTB 4K UHD Series Splitters is ten. The maximum number of displays for
this application is ten. For more displays, daisy-chain four-way or eight-way splitters, (next page) or
use just about any combination of two, four and eight-way splitters to accommodate the number of
displays needed to show a single source.

4K UHD DIGITAL SIGNAGE MEDIA PLAYER
This application shows multiple Gefen GTB-HD4K2K-144C-BLK four-way splitters in a daisy-chain
application. In this application, each splitter uses three outputs to feed three displays with the fourth
output feeding the next splitter. The last splitter in the system can use all four outputs to feed displays.
This application is also easy to design and install, and the four-way splitters will allow connection of
up to 31 displays. If more displays are required, Gefen GTB-HD4K2K-148C-BLK eight-way splitters can
be configured in a similar configuration with each splitter feeding up to seven displays, with the last
splitter being able to feed up to eight displays, for a total of up to 71 displays.
Ultimately, just about any combination of two, four and eight-way splitters can be used to
accommodate the required number of displays. For applications that require even more displays...

The illustration shows GTB-HD4K2K-144C-BLK four-way splitters cascaded to create a 4K Ultra HD distribution
system for up to 124 displays.
In this application the ten 'main' splitters are daisy-chained as shown in Application 3 but his time, rather than
feeding three displays and the next splitter in the chain, each of the daisy-chained splitters is feeding three
additional 'sub' splitters and the next splitter in the chain.
The enlarged detail shows how each of the 'sub' splitters would then feed up to four displays.
In the same configuration, Gefen GTB-HD4K2K-148C-BLK eight-way splitters, would net a total of 224 displays.
But what do we do when the displays are needed in locations farther than the typical, even daisy-chained runs
of HDMI cable will allow? Keep reading...

This application shows how to incorporate splitters and extenders to create a 4K Ultra HD distribution system with
remote 4K Ultra HD display clusters and IP control for Smart TVs or other IP controlled devices.
Inserting a Gefen EXT-UHD-CAT5-ELRPOL Extender between the Head-end Splitter and Remote Splitter can
extend HDMI, Ethernet, two-way IR, RS-232 and Receiver Power up to 330' (100m) for 4K Ultra/4K Cinema (8-bit)
or 1080p Full HD (12-bit Deep Color). 1080p Full HD (8-bit color) can be extended up to 495' (150m). The 2, 4 and
8-way splitters can be implemented at either the head-end or remote locations as needed.
Incorporating a third-party IP System system controller will provide discreet system-wide control of Smart TVs and
other IP controlled devices in remote locations.

Gefen GTB-HD4K2K-142/4/8C-BLK Splitters feature three settings that help improve
performance and stability in HDMI distribution systems.
FST -
Fast Switching Technology (FST) Fast Mode improves performance when
connecting/disconnecting HD sources, and powering HD displays ON/OFF.
Slow Mode will follow the standard authentication process based upon the HDMI
and HDCP specifications. Slow Mode is recommended when the source does not
support multiple devices.

Audio-As part of EDID management, splitter audio output can be set to 2-channel or
multi-channel when EDID is set to Int (Internal). 2ch Mode is used when all displays

when all displays and/or sink devices are capable of multichannel audio.

EDID- Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) contains the A/V capabilities of a display device in regard
to video resolutions and audio formats supported. This information is used by the source device to
determine the format of the A/V signals on the outputs. In Ext Mode (External) the splitter 'builds' an EDID
based upon the highest common video resolution and most superior audio format supported by all
displays. This EDID is then transmitted to the source device. In Int Mode (Internal) the built-in internal EDID
provides the source device with a 'generic' EDID that can be used by all displays.

This application features the GTB-HD4K2K-444-BLK 4X4 4K Ultra HD Matrix. This model includes all of the same
features as the 442 4x2 matrix with two additional outputs. Two additional rows of Output Status LEDs indicate
current routing of available sources to connected displays.
The flat-pack design of the GTB Series Matrixes allows installation just about anywhere...wall-mount, cabinet
side-wall, or the back-side of a video display providing ultimate convenience for installation. The 442, 444 and
642 are a slim 1" (26mm) thick and the 848 is 1.75" (44mm).
In addition to IR control, all ToolBox Matrixes have RS-232, and IP control capability for integration with thirdparty RS-232 and IP controllers, for control of 4K Ultra HD matrix switching in a wide range of commercial and
residential applications.

This application features the Gefen GTB-HD4K2K-642-BLK. The 642 is a 6x2 4K Ultra HD matrix with all of the same
features as the 442 an 444 with one great addition...two Optical Audio Outputs. These outputs provide 'zone'
specific audio outs that can be used to add audio in residential or commercial applications. In a residential
application the audio can be fed to AVRs located near displays for a simple two-zone 4K UHD system. In a
commercial application, the matrix Optical Outs can be fed to 2-channel, multi-channel or 70V amps with
the corresponding video distributed to multiple displays using Gefen 4K Ultra HD Splitters for selecting and
distributing video and audio in large areas.

The illustration shows GTB-HD4K2K-848-BLK 8x8 4K Ultra HD Matrix. The 848 is a 8x8 4K Ultra HD matrix with eight
HDMI inputs and eight HDMI outputs located on the side panels. This configuration results in a very low profile
installation with the input and output cables laying flat to the wall surface with the 1.75" (44mm) thin matrix.
All GTB Series matrixes feature a Web Server Interface that allows device configuration from a connected
computer. Settings such as Input/Output names, Input/Output select, Lock/Unlock, Manage/Edit EDID, Preset
Configurations, HPD Control, FST, HDCP Disable, IP Settings, Telnet/UDP Settings and System Configuration can all
be configured with real-time status windows that display current settings.

FST -
Fast Switching Technology (FST) Fast Mode improves performance when
connecting/disconnecting HD sources, and powering HD displays ON/
OFF. Slow Mode will follow the standard authentication process based
upon the HDMI and HDCP specifications. Slow Mode is recommended
when the source does not support multiple devices.

used when all displays and/or sink devices support only 2-channel LPCM
audio. Multi-ch Mode is used when all displays and/or sink devices are
capable of multichannel audio.

EDID- Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) contains the A/V capabilities of a display device in regard
to video resolutions and audio formats supported. This information is used by the source device to
determine the format of the A/V signals on the outputs. In Ext Mode (External) the matrix 'builds' an EDID
based upon the highest common video resolution and most superior audio format supported by all
displays. This EDID is then transmitted to the source device. In Int Mode (Internal) the built-in internal EDID
provides the source device with a 'generic' EDID that can be used by all displays.
Out - Repeatedly pressing a specific Out button will sequentially select the matrix's inputs until the desired
input is routed to that output. The LED indicators illuminate to show which input is routed to each output.
Settings - GTB-HD4K2K-848-BLK
The Gefen GTB-HD4K2K-848-BLK Matrix features a front panel
LCD with push-button menu controls that route HDMI signals

This application shows a daisy chain configuration with an EXT-HDKVM-LAN Sender feeding multiple
EXT-HDKVM-LAN Receivers via a gigabit switch with 8K jumbo frame and multicast capabilities. Each Receiver
has a built-in 3 port gigabit switch that can be used to connect multiple Receivers.
This application is best used for a single source system when a given video program or digital signage content is
going to be distributed to multiple 1080p Full HD Displays.
IR Control from the Receiver(s) to the Sender or RS-232 control from the Sender to the Receivers can also be
incorporated for control of the HD source and displays. (RS-232 connection not shown.)

The illustration shows the KVM Senders and Receivers configured in a simple matrix. The example shows Gefen
KVM Senders and Receivers for HDMI 1080p Full HD, VGA, DVI and the HDMI/IR/RS-232 model. All Senders and
Receivers are connected to a gigabit switch with 8K jumbo frame and multicast capabilities.
The video format from any Sender can be converted to the video format of any Receiver on the matrix. (HDCP
content is only supported by HDMI Sender and Receiver units.)
The EXT-CU-LAN Controller is optional, but is highly recommended for large systems or systems that will be
frequently changing signal routing. Third-party controllers (Elan, Crestron, etc) can also be used for matrix
control and only have to communicate with EXT-CU-LAN controller, simplifying third-party control setup. The
example shown here uses the 'combined' mode of the EXT-CU-LAN Controller. In this mode a KVM over IP matrix
can reside on a network with other devices as long as the network’s bandwidth supports all devices without
affecting performance (average bitrate of each sender is ~150Mbps). Setup can be performed via the Sender/
Receiver embedded web pages or more quickly with the EXT-CU-LAN Controller that uses the same discovery
service that’s built into the Gefen Syner-G™ Software.

This application shows the KVM matrix setup in ‘separate mode’. This configuration isolates all of the KVM traffic
from other network data, VoIP services, Internet access, etc.
The EXT-CU-LAN Controller has two isolated LAN ports. This allows the controller to be connected to both the
video and control networks. Although the LANs can be completely separate, the EXT-CU-LAN will allow control
of Gefen KVM and Video over IP devices from computers or third-party controllers on the ‘Control Network’
and computers or third-party controllers on the Video Network.

Matrix Controller
There is a discovery protocol built into each KVM over IP Sender and Receiver. The software simply sends out
a beacon that each unit responds to with its specific information, (model, IP Address, MAC Address, etc).
In a simple Sender/Receiver extender configuration, this exchange of information allows the two units to
communicate, connect and function. That same beacon is also built into the EXT-CU-LAN. The EXT-CU-LAN
however, takes all of this a step further by having specific logic built-in that will allow the system to assign IP
addresses and make setting changes on each unit remotely and automatically. Given the potential number
of devices on a KVM over IP system, attempting the same thing manually would require having to address
each device individually...and likely take longer than a typical client would care to pay for. EXT-CU-LAN’s auto
assignment capabilities reduce this discovery and configuration to mere minutes...automatically! Once all
Senders and Receivers have been identified and configured, routing setup and control are easily managed
either directly from the EXT-CU-LAN or a third-party controller.
