Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce the HAE 100 4K, an audio de-embedder
that extracts the audio from an HDMI signal, including audio from 4K sources. The
HAE 100 4K provides outputs for analogue stereo or dual mono signals, as well as
digital multi-channel or two-channel S/PDIF audio. It is HDCP compliant, supports
data rates up to 10.2 Gbps, and is compatible with video resolutions up to 4K. The
HAE 100 4K is equipped with several integrator-friendly features such as a buffered
HDMI video output with EDID Minder for simplified EDID management between the
input source and the display, plus input cable equalization and comprehensive LED
status display.

“Since many professional audio devices do not accept an HDMI input signal, there is
a need to split off the audio portion of the signal in order to route it to the audio
system,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. “The
HAE 100 4K provides the flexible integration capabilities of the popular HAE 100
audio de embedder, while adding support for 4K video resolutions.”

The HAE 100 4K offers several features that enhance and simplify AV system
integration. To compensate for signal loss over long input cables, incoming HDMI
signals are equalized up to 50 feet (15 meters) at 4K or 100 feet (30 meters) at
1080p/60 when used with Extron HDMI Pro cables. LEDs on the front panel offer
comprehensive, real-time device status monitoring, including HDMI input, HDMI
output, and audio output signal presence, HDCP authentication, and the format of
the extracted audio. The HAE 100 4K is housed in a compact 1″ (2.5 cm) high,
quarter rack width metal enclosure that enables simple and discreet mounting in a
range of environments.
