MOUNT VERNON, N.Y., May 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Key Digital®, the expert in audio and video technology and solutions, is proud to introduce FatCat Series™ model KD-CATHD500 HDMI balun kit, the newest digital video distribution solution. This HDMI balun kit is designed for commercial applications where long CAT6/STP cable runs are impeding digital video signal transmission.

The FatCat Series™ model KD-CATHD500 now offers runs of up to 400ft. on 1080p/60 using our FatCat Series™ model KD-CAT6STP1X CAT6STP cabling solution. The KD-CATHD500 is also equipped with Ethernet ports to pass streaming online media to displays, and the transmit ends of both models offer a built in HDMI pass through – the first of its kind. Key Digital's first ever HDBaseT balun kit also offers bi-directional and simultaneous control features, further proving the versatility of the FatCat Series™ family of HDMI baluns. The KD-CATHD500 are one of the first balun kits to have an EDID control built in, which ensures a proper handshake between HDMI devices every time.
