VuWall debuts HDMI extenders based on Semtech’s AVX technology

Oct. 21, 2021
The partners contend the new product line showcases a technology shift in AV extension technologies.

Analog and mixed-signal semiconductors supplier Semtech (NASDAQ: SMTC) has announced its collaboration with VuWall, an expert in video wall control systems and unified visualization platforms, for that company's new line of HDMI extenders.

The VuWall HDMI extenders offer robust protection against electromagnetic interference (EMI), and feature guaranteed cable lengths available in copper and fiber, based on IEEE standards. VuWall said it selected Semtech’s AVX technology for its long reach performance and its ability to dramatically reduce both product and system costs.

“Upon developing our next generation of HDMI extenders, it was imperative that VuWall collaborate with the best in the professional AV industry, which is why we chose to base our new line of extenders on Semtech’s AVX technology,” said Mark Schmidt, chief technology officer at VuWall. “Through implementing AVX into the HDMI extenders, VuWall is taking the next step into modern and best-in-class AV extension technologies, a milestone made possible by collaborating with Semtech.”

The company added that the advanced features of Semtech’s AVX serve as an ideal base for VuWall’s HDMI extenders. As newer AV extension technologies emerge, VuWall notes that Semtech’s AVX200T optimizes multimedia connectivity between AV equipment and remote displays. Additionally, the AVX silicon simultaneously transmits uncompressed-quality 4K video, multi-channel audio, Gigabit Ethernet, USB, and other control signals over copper category cabling or optical fiber.

VuWall says its HDMI 2.0 Extenders extend audio/video signals with CAT cable or optical fiber, supporting up to 4K@60Hz resolution (full 4:4:4), compliant with HDR and HDCP 2.2. Customers can distribute uncompressed video and audio, bringing ultra-high-definition video to screens with no signal loss or delay.

“The unmatched capabilities of Semtech’s AVX technology is prominently showcased in VuWall’s new line of HDMI extenders,” concluded Don Shaver, vice president of video products for Semtech’s Signal Integrity Products Group. “On top of the attractive cost of the new line, VuWall’s HDMI extenders highlight the new shift forward in AV extension technologies for those looking for the best performance on the market today.”
