The C2G HDMI HDBaseT + USB-B to A and RS232 Over Cat Extender Extends a 4K HDMI Source Up to 328 Feet to a 4K Display With 5Play Support
DAYTON, Ohio — Aug. 9, 2023 — C2G today announced its new HDMI® HDBaseT + USB-B to A and RS232 Over Cat Extender (18Gbps), model C2G30055. It is an ideal solution where USB must also be extended alongside HDMI video and audio to interactive whiteboards and displays, or in any installation that goes far beyond the length limitations of standard HDMI and USB cabling.
“Today’s installations need to support the extension of AV, power, data, ethernet, and control signals — all the features that make up the benefits of 5Play,” said Robert Mays, Associate Product Marketing Manager, C2G, A Brand of Legrand. “This is all packed into our latest HDBaseT extender solution, streamlining 4K installations with a solid infrastructure that meets C2G’s high standards in testing, quality, convenience, and confidence.”
The C2G HDMI HDBaseT + USB-B to A and RS-232 Over Cat Extender (18Gbps) allows for the extension of a 4K HDMI source up to 328 feet to a 4K display without signal loss using a single
Cat 6a Ethernet cable. This HDMI HDBaseT 3.0 kit supports 5Play features, including the combined delivery of uncompressed, ultra-high-definition digital video and audio; Ethernet; control signals; USB 2.0; and up to 100W of power through a single, 100-meter/328-foot Cat 6a LAN cable. The uncompressed digital video fully supports 4K 60Hz (4:4:4) HDMI signals and all audio formats in the HDMI 2.0 specification. The Ethernet pass-through transmits 1GB of data. The featured dip switch allows for RS-232 pass-through and the added convenience of field firmware updating. USB 2.0 supports streaming cameras, connected peripherals, and storage devices. With one-way power over HDBaseT (PoH) support, one power adapter connected to the receiver powers both the transmitter and receiver, eliminating the need for an additional power adapter, and allowing for greater flexibility in installations.
All connectivity solutions are available through retailers and direct to users from C2G.

When you need reliable connections, be sure to turn to C2G and our high-performance cabling and connectivity solutions. We’ve grown into respectable players in the IT and AV industries, though we still retain our scrappy vibe from the early days. And we’re not above having the occasional mascot. (We miss you, Cable Guy and Captain Connector!)
That’s what you get with C2G — an incredible focus on delivering unique, value-added solutions along with a singular commitment to creating lasting, dependable partnerships. It’s not unheard of for executives to be seen repackaging products in shipping or for a sales rep to hand-deliver a rush order when unusual circumstances arise. We’ve been that way since our founders ditched their 1984 Salem Mall PC resell store in Ohio to focus on expanding the custom cables they made in the back, which were selling like hotcakes.
We use premium components and the latest technologies to keep pace with the fast-moving changes in AV technology. Quality is so important to us that we have our own manufacturing plant to ensure our products meet our demanding expectations. We put our cable performance second to none and make sure we comply with industry specifications across RoHS, R.E.A.C.H., and WEEE. Check out our 7,000-plus stocked solutions or ask about custom kits. Seriously, let’s get connected.
