The Extron HAE 100 is an audio de-embedder that extracts the audio from the HDMI signal and provides outputs for analog stereo and digital S/PDIF audio. The HAE 100 supports data rates up to 6.75 Gbps for compatibility with HDMI 1.3 Deep Color. It is HDCP compliant and compatible with HDTV 1080p/60 or computer-video resolutions up to 1920x1200.




The HAE 100 is equipped with several integrator-friendly features, including 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.

EDID Minder® automatically manages EDID communication between the input source and the display, ensuring the source powers up properly and reliably delivers content to the display. Input cable equalization compensates for weak source signals or signal loss when using long input cable assemblies.

LEDs on the front panel offer comprehensive, real-time device status monitoring, including HDMI input / output and audio output signal presence, HDCP authentication, and whether the extracted audio is two-channel PCM or encoded bitstream audio for Dolby® Digital or DTS® Digital Surround. A mini USB port on the front panel provides convenient access for device configuration. The HAE 100 is housed in a compact 1U, quarter rack width metal enclosure.

Telepresence and Video Conferencing
Leading environmental organizations highlight video as an effective “green” technology to reduce global warming.

The Nature Conservancy lists video conferencing as one of its
“Easy Things You Can Do To Help Our Climate.”

In addition to its benefit related to climate change, video conferencing also provides measurable results to help your company do more with less.

Ten Tips to Advance Business Goals and Reduce Environmental Impacts withTelepresence and Video Conferencing
  • Telecommuting - Enable people to work from home while still being fully engaged in the workplace with a face-to-face connection. Save on real estate and operational costs, while increasing productivity and morale of employees who don’t spend hours in traffic.
  • Access to Remote Experts - Connecting customers and employees to experts and advisors over video no matter where they are located saves time, money and carbon emissions, and increases customer satisfaction and loyalty.
  • Global Meetings - Whether meeting with the board or your global team, there’s no need for a flight. Just a short walk down the hall or a quick call from the desk and everyone can meet face-to-face.
  • Customer Briefing Centers - Video unites purchasers, clients, sales staff and engineers in real time without travel to facilitate instant decision making and collaboration.
  • Work/life Balance - Employees who are always on the road often report more stress, less productivity and reduced job satisfaction. Video removes the need to travel, increasing morale, productivity, and collaboration.
  • Distance Learning - Schools and training facilities get an added lesson in conservation when they connect via video to remote institutions to enhance learning opportunities and save on costs.
  • R&D - Designers and researchers around the globe can hold video discussions about product design, carry out component modifications, and advance development timelines, without increasing their carbon footprint.
  • Team Building - Multiple offices don’t have to mean isolated teams. Video allows remote teammates to see each other as often as if they were in the same office, building camaraderie without associated travel.
  • HR Recruiting - Video-based screenings of out-of-town candidates cut costs and carbon emissions by eliminating travel, while allowing hiring managers to read candidates’ facial expressions.
  • Real-time Collaboration - Organizations can deal with large amounts of rich data and collaborate in real-time from multiple locations with the visual and multi-media capabilities of video conferencing instead of losing productivity from rigorous travel out into the field.
