NOTE 1: This HDMI over CAT5 extender uses the latest Silicon Image EDID chipset which increases the compatibility with more HDMI devices. Many PC's, laptops and surround receivers have major problems outputting to devices other than short HDMI cables and this HDMI over CAT5 extender should solve those problems.

The HDMI over single CAT5 cable includes two units: transmitting unit HDMI-C5S4IR-TX and receiving unit HDMI-C5S4IR-RX. The transmitting unit is used to capture the input HDMI / DVI signals with IR control packets and carry the signals via one cost effective Cat.5/5e/6 cable. The receiving unit is responsible for equalizing the transmitted HDMI signal and reconstructing IR signals. The transmission distance between the sending and receiving units can be up to 60m (200ft) at HD 720p or 1080i; or 40m (130ft) at Full HD 1080p. With an 8-level equalization rotary control on the receiving unit, users can adjust the equalization strength to the received HDMI signals accordingly, and therefore optimize the transmission distance between source and destination

The HDMI to one CAT-5 or CAT-6 cable adapter set comes with one transmitter, one receiver, and one AC adapter that is used with the receiver. The device requires only one CAT5 or CAT6 cable. This HDMI to CAT5 / CAT6 Extender supports a 2.25 GHz bandwidth, and provides 8 levels of skew compensation adjustments for variations in CAT5 or CAT6 cables. The receiver come with an AC power adapter to provide low voltage power for the device. The sender does not need an AC adapter.

NOTE 2: We recommend strongly that you use good CAT5 / 6 cables with any CAT5 / 6 converting products like this one. Most of our "no picture" support calls are due to poor quality and cheap CAT5 cables. Since it is high definition video we only recommend CAT5/6 cables with specs like our CAT-5 /6 cables either bought from us or another high quality supplier.

Compared to regular copper HDMI cable using a booster or repeater, or a fiber cable solution, it is great cost effective way to wire HDMI long distances. Only one (1) CAT5 or CAT6 cable is needed and are easy to install and terminate in the field to fit exact length requirements. Both the below PVC and Plenum grade CAT5 are low in cost to fit most budgets.

The HDMI to CAT5 / CAT6 system consists of a transmitter unit & a receiver unit. At the source end the high-speed transmitter transcodes HDMI signals over 1-CAT5 cable. At the display end, the externally powered receiver unit transcodes signals back to HDMI.

Setup Tips: As for the EDID Learning, our HDMI over single CAT5 this extender can learn the EDID of a Television or projector, and simulate that information for your HDMI video device.

To do this, connect the TELEVISION or HIGH DEFINITION SCREEN to the Transmitter unit and make sure the Television AND the Transmitter unit are both on, and turn the MODE dial on the Transmitter unit to 7. Now, the lights will turn off for a couple of seconds, then come back on. At this time, EDID has been learned. Turn the MODE dial to 0 or 1 by turning Clockwise. DO NOT TURN THE DIAL COUNTER-CLOCKWISE.

This will erase the EDID (Mode 6), and you will have to follow these instructions again. Once the mode is back to 0 or 1, now you can hook up your HDMI device and your Television to the correct units, attach your CAT5 cable, and enjoy your High Definition video at very long distances.

For the best results will be achieved we recommend using Solid CAT5 or CAT6 cable terminated in T-568B. The wires will be in the following order when looking at the CAT5 connector with the tab end DOWN. White/Orange, Orange, White/Green, Blue, White/Blue, Green, White/Brown, Brown.

TIP: Because the quality of the LAN cables has a major effect in transmission distance always use high quality cables. For resolution greater than 1080i or 1280x1024, CAT6 solid wire cables are highly recommended.

The transmission length is largely affected by the type of LAN cables, the type of video sources and the type of HDMI display. Our testing results show solid LAN cables (usually in bulk cable 300m or 1000 foot form) can transmit a longer signal than stranded LAN cables (usually in patch cord form).

Shielded (STP) cables are better suited than unshielded (UTP) cables. A solid UTP CAT5E cable allows a longer transmission length than a stranded STP CAT6 cable. For long extension users, solid LAN cables should be your only choice. To reduce the interference among the unshielded twisted pairs of wires in a LAN cable, you can use shielded LAN cables to reduce EMI problems, which is worse when you have long transmission distances.
