High-performance entry-level graphics card with medium distance capabilities for professional HDBaseT audiovisual installations.
Built in bi-directional emulated controls (IR / RS232 / CEC), allowing you to avoid the cable mess found in extenders.
AMD Ultra High-Performance Embedded GPU
A modular HDBaseT™ graphics card that comes with AMD Embedded Ultra High-Performance E9550 MXM Module:
- Polaris Architecture
- 36 Compute Units
- 5.8 TFLOPS.
- 8GB GDDR5
- Memory; 256bit wide
- <95W GPU Thermal Design
- Support for 4K hardware-accelerated decode and encode (HEVC/H.265 and AVC/H.264)
- Microsoft DirectX® 12, OpenGL 4.5, and OpenCL™ 2.0 capable

Designed to allow you to upgrade the AMD embedded module in the future without the need to purchase a whole new product from us.
Do you really need to increase the points of failure and increase the use of legacy electronic waste in your installations by using additional cables for RS232, CEC, IR in and IR out? With TB4 Performance Light, you do not need to, a single CAT cable does all of this including your Audio / Video needs.
Emulated controls giving you the IOT power over your displays/projectors.
TB4 Performance Light has Infrared (IR) & RS232: Encode and decode IR and RS232 signals through Serial Console. The power of a universal remote control and the power to sniff and read any incoming IR and RS232 signal, copy the signal, and send the signal back out. Emulation of any RC5 or CIRC IR commands.
Consumer Electronics Control (CEC): Encode and decode CEC signals through Serial Console. Can send raw command CEC strings, emulating any device. Auto responds to basic CEC commands with additional diagnostic mode that can capture and show full raw data and timing information.
Pass Through IR
If you do not want to use the emulated controls, but would like to use a remote control on the media server side to controls displays up to 70 meters / 229 feet away…
… control media players from the display side up to 70 meters / 229 feet away from the media server…
…. the advoli™ TB4 Performance Light Graphics Card has one IR input and one output port for an IR Blaster and an IR receiver.
CAT Cable Benefits
- Sending 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
- Cheaper than other copper based cabling in general
- Lighter and more flexible than most other alternative cabling
- Usually much cheaper and easier to find when you need fire-proof and shielded cabling
- Easy to terminate on site during installation – not possible with most other audiovisual cables.
- Greater features not possible with competing audiovisual standards.
Half Length Graphics Card
The advoli™ TB4 Performance Graphics Card is designed to fit both smaller sized media servers with ITX form factor motherboards and large scale server motherboards. The advoli™ TB4 Performance Light Graphics Cards abides by the dimensions of the PCIe half length form factor:
L: 167 mm (175.26 mm) / 6.57 in (6.9 in)
H: 120 mm (106.68 mm) / 4.72 in (4.2 in)
W: 39 mm (40 mm) / 1.53 in (1.57 in)
Dual-width PCIe half length form factor specification in parenthesis. Please note the height difference.
The advoli™ TB4 Performance Light Graphics Card comes with HDBaseT™ diagnostic features: cable distance, signal quality and signal integrity for each twisted pair on CAT cable.
The graphics card is packed with environmental sensors/controls/information: voltages, temperature, fan speed, operational hour, power cycles and display/projector connectivity.
This gives the end user control over audiovisual installations all the way down to the displays, to more effectively and remotely diagnose problems reducing the need to send technicians on-site to determine the problem – saving costs.
With a future web-based interface, diagnosis and notification service, installation oversight can be fully automated ensuring higher up-time and faster fixes.
The advoli™ TB4 Performance Light Graphics Card comes with dual ball (double) bearing fans extending the lifespan of the fans and ensuring consistency in performance.
Having two double bearing fans allow for redundancy – should one fan fail the other will increase speed to compensate.
Both fans are set to operate at lower RPM to increase the life span of the fans and to increase with elevated temperatures of our on board temperature sensors.
Flexibility, Functionality and Performance
When designing the advoli™ TB4 Performance Light Graphics Card we had three core items in mind while driving for simplicity.
Flexibility – we wanted to ensure you were able to use your preferred processor brand in as many different types of motherboards as possible.
Functionality – we wanted to give you more power over your graphics card functionality, pushing IOT solutions and driving more functionality over one cable.
Performance – we wanted to ensure what we delivered was robust and could scale performance based on need. We tested a multitude of cooling solutions and found out our own custom design gave the best performance for our form factor.
