Connect HDMI devices without a suitable audio output to an audio system.
- Play the audio from your Smart TV applications (Netflix, YouTube) or built-in TV decoder on your home cinema set, audio amplifier or soundbar.
- Suitable for the latest Ultra HD 4K60 resolution (3840 x 2160/60 Hz), High Dynamic Range (HDR), Deep Color and 4:4:4 chroma colours.
- Unique HDMI audio output without image display, thus prevents compatibility issues with your current AV amplifier.
- Use your TV's Audio Return Channel (ARC) function, even when your audio equipment is not suitable for this.
If you experience connection problems between an HDMI source, audio amplifier and TV, the Connect AE24 UHD 2.0 offers a solution. This versatile problem solver makes it possible to connect an audio-video source or a TV without a suitable audio output to an audio system anyway. This HDMI 4K60 audio extractor with ARC enables you to extract audio from an HDMI source or TV and forward it to a home cinema set, audio amplifier or sound bar.
HDMI audio only
In addition to an optical and analogue output, this audio extractor also features an HDMI audio-only output (HDMI without image reproduction). It is ideal in situations when your current audio system does not support the latest video resolutions (4K and HDR), but you still want to keep using it for audio playback.
Since only the audio signal is sent to your audio system through the HDMI cable, there will be no problems with image reproduction at the highest resolution possible on your TV. After all, connecting an ‘old’ audio system would maximise your TV's video resolution to 1080p, while your TV actually supports 4K resolutions. Such a waste! With the Connect AE24 UHD 2.0, you avoid this problem.
An additional advantage of audio over HDMI is that it supports the latest audio codecs (including Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio), while an optical audio signal supports only up to DTS. The Connect AE24 UHD 2.0 therefore allows you to use audio devices that do not support state-of-the-art technologies (4K, HDR, HDCP 2.2), without any concessions to the image and sound quality.
When your TV does support ARC and your audio system does not, this product still enables you to recover audio over your HDMI cable and then connect it to this audio system optically, through analogue or via HDMI audio-only.
The Connect AE24 UHD 2.0 is suitable for connecting it to state-of-the-art Ultra HD devices that are equipped with HDMI 2.0 & HDCP 2.2 security.
