Tributaries HX102 HDMI Cable Extender

MSRP: $175.00

Tributaries’ HX102 is a patent pending, active device to increase the performance of most long-length HDMI cables less than 25m from Standard to High Speed. The lightweight dongle-type device measures 12″ long including an 8½″ HDMI cable. It is designed for easy, convenient connection at the display end of a long Standard HDMI cable using video equalization to correct bit errors and timing issues.

Engineered with smart technology, the HX102 can sense the length of a cable and provide the proper amount of equalization required. The HX102 electronics have an independent adaptive equalizer in each of its three data channels. Each equalizer analyzes the incoming signal and determines the exact amount of equalization to apply thus resetting the signal to its original condition. The signal then passes through an 8½″ HDMI cable that plugs into the display. To ensure a secure and tight fit, the HX102’s male HDMI connector is equipped with Tributaries’ BOSS raised elements.

Equipped with 2 LEDs, the HX102 can display incorrect operation resulting from a damaged cable, a defective driver, or a lost connection. 

The HX102 is not designed to work with HDMI cables that have built-in electronics.

The HX102 has a male HDMI connector that is designed with raised BOSS elements to ensure a tight fit, Full Body Armor™ for strength, durability and integrity, and extensive shielding to protect data from EMI/RFI and provide reliable system performance.

The HX102 is the only HDMI extender unit that has the form factor of a dongle instead of a black box offering a much better fit in the tight spaces commonly found behind flat panels and above projectors.

The HX102 offers peace of mind. If a long HDMI cable has been installed in a wall and suddenly fails, the HX102 can easily be added to restore proper functionality.
