Honeywell HDMI Unit
The new HDMI line driver and diagnostic unit is designed for home theater installers who are using HDMI cables to transmit audio, video and communication signals. Direct coupled from input to output for maximum video bandwidth, the compact, easy-to-install unit features Honeywell’s unique CURxE Light technology to diagnose and correct corrupted communication data on the HDCP and EDID channels that would otherwise degrade audio/video quality. Four LED lights on the unit serve as self-diagnostic monitoring indicators to show verification of Hot Plug detection, +5 Volts status, HDCP and EDID. Based on LED activity, the installer or end-user will see the problem whether it’s downstream, upstream or related to hardware inconsistency. The new line driver is HDMI v1.3 compliant and support HDTV resolutions up to 1080p. Available now through Honeywell Security dealers for $199 (MSRP).
