StarTech Announces New HDMI Over IP Extender

We get press releases all the time but this HDMI Over IP Extender actually looks like something you guys would be interested in. There is a VGA version as well but the HDMI unit is really what caught my eye. Here's a bit of info from the product page:

The IPUSB2HD2 HDMI over IP Extender delivers a versatile HDMI-IP link between PCs on your network and an HDMI monitor/projector, at full high definition (1080p, 1920x1080) video resolution. Accompanying audio signals are transmitted directly through the HDMI output, or separately through the built-on 3.5mm stereo output port. An ideal solution for sharing a display or projector over an Ethernet network so that even PCs lacking digital video output can still connect, the IP/HDMI adapter can communicate through a network router at transmission distances up to 100m (300ft). Plus, it offers 2 USB 2.0 ports on the display side, to connect and share peripherals such as USB storage or keyboard/mouse input with the connected PC.

Features of HDMI over IP Extender (IPUSB2HD2) include:

  • HDMI over IP conversion for shared access over a network

  • Supports resolutions up to 1920x1080 (1080p)

  • Audio over HDMI

  • Support for Windows Aeroآ®

  • 2 USB ports for peripheral connections (display side)
