Features & Specifications

HDMI cables have become the choice for transmitting uncompressed digital data that ends up as movies and music on your tablet, laptop and big screens. HDMI drastically simplifies high-speed audio and video transmission; however, there are limits to how far you can run this digital cable before the signal does not work. The length varies—some say at 100 feet, others say less. That's where products like our HDMI Extender Over Single CAT5/CAT6 come in handy. This product lets you extend HDMI runs to almost 200 feet (196 to be exact) using less expensive Cat 5/6 Ethernet network cable (we actually recommend Cat5e which has the same bandwidth as the Cat6 but is less expensive).

How Does It Work?
The HDMI extender features a transmitter that is connected to the source by a shorter HDMI cable. The HDMI signal is processed, then output using a select length of single Cat5e network cable into the extender/receiver that converts the signal back to uncompressed HDMI. Then another short HDMI cable is connected to your monitor. HDMI extender systems over Cat5/Cat6 have been viewed as a safeguard against newer technologies just in case you need to update your connection. It tends to be easier to replace the transmitter and receiver of the system rather than having to pull the HDMI cable out of the wall.

Do you get a pair for this price or just one?
1 Answer
Hi Tom: These are sold as a matched pair. You will need a short HDMI cable from your source to the Transmitter/convertor. There the signal is imbedded in the CAT5e/Cat6 Cable over the desired length connected to the Receiver/convertor which is then converted back to HDMI. You will need another HDMI cable to connect to your Monitor or Receiver. These are currently out of stock with an eta end of August. TL

Hugh, This would be HDMI in- to the sender unit- cat5 out to the receiver unit and then HDMI out, so basically its extending the HDMI by using cat5 in the middle, and HDMI on both ends. CL

Hugh: The system features a Transmitter connected to the Source component (DVD, Game unit, Satellite receiver or Audio/Video Reeiver) by an HDMI cable. The Transmitter has a Cat5/Cat6 output which connects to the input of the Receiver with the desired length of Cat5/Cat6 cable. The Receiver has a HDMI output which is connected to the HDMI input of the Monitor with an HDMI cable. You have should have no probem with your direct TV signal. Make sure you test the whole system using the actual lengths that you will need before you install in the wall . TL/MA
