Gefen coax HDMI extender

Accessory maker Gefen is preparing the HDMI Over Coax Extender, its latest home theater product. In what the company claims in a commercial first, the technology will allow people to send HDMI content from one room to another anywhere else in a home, via regular coaxial cable. HDMI is intended to block piracy, and normally requires specially-formatted cables to carry its audio and video channels.

To this Gefen has added an infrared channel, which allows the same remote(s) for the originating source to function regardless of where in a home they are used. A Blu-Ray player, for instance, should be able to understand pause commands in a room 15 feet away, so long as the output also has an IR sensor. The Over Coax Extender should begin shipping in April.
