NORWOOD, MA (8/5/14) – Transformative Engineering has responded to dealer requests for a simplified and less expensive version of their flagship HDMI extender. The result is the new HLE-1 Lite HDMI Extender, which utilizes the latest version of HDBaseT known as “HDBaseT Lite” for HDMI extension up 70 Meters, along with bi-directional IR over a single CAT5e or CAT6 UTP cable.

Transformative Engineering continues with its tradition of a single 24V DC power supply, injected at the transmitter side and also providing remote power to its companion receiver module. The HLE-1′s HDMI features include support for 4K x 2K resolution, 3-D, and all current audio formats including DTS-HD and Dolby True-HD.

The HLE-1 has a rugged high-quality vented steel case for cooling, shielding, and safety. There are built-in diagnostic indicator lights for monitoring performance and operation. It has built-in fully automatic cable length compensation, with no dials or switches needed. The HLE-1 has a single HDMI input, one HDBaseT RJ45 output, and bi-directional IRDA connections that are Xantech compatible.

The Transformative Engineering HLE-1 kit consists of one HLE-1TX HDMI transmitter module, one HLE-1RX HDMI receiver module, and the 24V power supply. The HLE-1, which is backed by a three-year warranty, is currently available to dealers and has a suggested retail price of $349.
