Near Universal application

We have tested the advoli HDBaseT RB1 Standard Receiver on more than a hundred different types of displays and projectors, to ensure that we got the right dimensions to fit as many brands as possible. Size was thus a crucial part of our design to remove additional needs for cabling to reach difficult placed ports. Less devices means less cost, less electronic waste and less points of failure. We do not guarantee a fit with all products in the world, but we aim to be as compatible as possible.

For those special hard to reach cases a small pig tail or an angle extender/adapter cable will do the job.

CAT Cable Benefits

  1. Receive UHD (4K) video, audio and controls up to a distance of 40 meters / 131 feet, and 70 meters / 229 feet for FHD (1080P), not possible with most other competing standards
  2. Cheaper than other copper based cabling in general
  3. Lighter and more flexible than most other alternative cabling
  4. Usually much cheaper and easier to find when you need fire-proof and shielded cabling
  5. Easy to terminate onsite during installation – not possible with most other audiovisual cables.
  6. Greater features not possible with competing audiovisual standards.

SIR™ Port

To make the advoli RB1 Standard even smaller and more simplified we developed the SIR™ port – one port for IR receiver, IR blaster, IR in/out combination, and RS232.

Information Source & Diagnostics

The advoli RB1 Standard Receiver is packed with environmental sensors/controls/information: voltages, temperature sensors, fan speeds, operational hours, power cycles, display/projector connectivity, pass through of raw EDID information and much more.

This gives the end user via the advoli HDBaseT Graphics Cards and RB1 Standard, control over audiovisual installations all the way down to the displays and projectors, to more effectively and remotely diagnose problems reducing the need to send technicians on-site – saving costs.

With a future web-based interface, diagnosis and notification service on installations can be fully automated ensuring higher up-time and faster fixes.

Designed to Reduce Temperature

When creating ultra-compact audiovisual products, increased temperature is a worry. To address this concern, advoli designed the RB1 Standard so that the HDBaseT chipset is placed directly on to the surrounding case.

The placement of the chip and casing makes the entire external metal case an effective heatsink. Using the case as a heatsink significantly reduces the temperature of the chip to lower than several tested competing fanless products that rely on large PCB and convection via heatsinks to cool the chip. We have built the receiver with two high grade fans, same as used in projectors to ensure lowest operating temperature. With advoli’s smart redundancy fan design, should one fan stop working the other fan will start.

In addition, should both fans fail, we have built the receiver using high grade components that can withstand high temperatures, allowing for our receiver to function at ambient temperatures up to 50C / 122F.

Compatible with TB6/TB4 advoli Graphics Cards

advoli RB1 Standard is made to partner up with our advoli TB6/TB4 series graphics cards in kits to ensure you get the full distance and features of both our receiver and graphics cards.

advoli RB1 Standard can also be used with the advoli TA6/TA4 series graphics card, but the distance will be limited by the RB1 Standard receiver.

advoli RB1 Standard is also compatible with other HDBaseT products e.g. matrix switches and TX extenders.


Not all audiovisual installations require every type of control. Using our  SIR™ port you can decide what control you want to use without the increase in size from having unused ports. One port serves the functionality of four.

Choose from the following accessories:

1. SIR to IR transmitter / IR blaster
2. IR receiver to SIR
3. SIR to IR in and out
4. SIR to RS232
