Product Description

The HDMI Video Transmitter over Cat5 transmits a HDMI signal to a Receiver unit over Category 5 cable, and is used to extend the overall HDMI signal distance. Depending on the type of receiver used with the transmitter, the HDMI signal can be extended for a distance of 50m to 250m.

One limitation of HDMI connections is length, with the HDMI signal rapidly deteriorating over large distances. The HDMI Transmitter over Cat5 solves this common problem, as it essentially extends the HDMI signal. The HDMI Transmitter over Cat5 would suit those who are suffering from HDMI signal loss due to long distance, and those with a large distance in between their HDMI input source and their HDTV display.

To function correctly, the HDMI Video Transmitter over Cat5 unit must be paired with a receiver unit. Receivers are available which will increase your HDMI signal by 50 / 100 / 150 / 250 metres. Setting up the unit is quick and easy. You simply connect the transmitter to your HDMI source (DVD Player, Digital Set Top Box, PS3, XBox 360 etc) via a HDMI cable. The transmitter unit is connected to the Receiver unit via Cat5 cable, and the Receiver unit is in turn connected to your HDTV display via HDMI cable.

Two separate output links available, one for HDMI Video transmission via Cat5 cable and the other is for transmitting DDC (Display Data Channel) information when needed. Where DDC or HDCP data are known for the source and the display, you can use a single Cat5 cable to connect the Video ports of the Transmitter and Receiver units.

The HDMI Video Transmitter over Cat5 Cable can be used with DVI appliances by utilising a standard DVI to HDMI / HDMI to DVI cable converter.
