24AWG or thicker (lower AWG number) similar to our HDMI cables are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for best performance with this HDMI Booster. Some devices will require thicker gauge, category 2 cables to work with this HDMI Booster.
HDTV Supply offers these very small HDMI boosters which are HDMI 1.3 Compliant and require no external power source, drawing the required operating current from the HDMI source. Small, these simple 1 in, 1 out, plug and play HDMI boosters delivers faithful, lossless HDMI output, when using long HDMI cable lengths based upon the specs below.
These HDMI Boosters extend the length of any HDMI cable by regenerating the HDMI signal before it outputs to the HDMI equipped displays and eliminates the digital noise (sparkles) you see due to long, small gauge HDMI cables. These HDMI boosters are configured with female connectors on both sides and require another short HDMI cable to plug into it and then the HDTV. We only recommend our above 24 AWG HDMI 1.3b cables if you have a long cable that has sparkles or no picture at all.
No AC adapter is needed as they use the +5V signal off of pin 18 of the HDMI cable to power it. If you feel you do need an HDMI booster with an AC adapter one is offered above that works to 100 feet.NOTE 1:
These HDMI boosters works only at the end, or near the HDTV, not at the source device. The HDMI booster is placed near the display to remove any noise that has been generated by a long HDMI cable.NOTE 2:
PC video cards and AV Surround sound receivers are notorious for not conforming to the HDMI spec of providing a stable 5 volt at 55 mill-amp output. We have seen many Onkyo and other AV receivers who can't drive long HDMI cables due to their poor HDMI switching design.
We have seen some laptops and AV receivers that only measure 30ma which means you can't use a long HDMI cable or another HDMI device on the AV receivers output. This front end HDMI booster may be able to offset that problem if you are not getting a signal when using a long HDMI cable.
If you have a PC, laptop and/or an AV receiver that is experiencing sparkles or no signal you may need the VOLTAGE INJECTOR
Also above with a picture below is an HDMI booster with a male or one side and a female connector on the other side. This save you the price of an HDMI cable. These HDMI 1.3 compliant boosters support older 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2 devices.
If you are not getting a picture with a long HDMI cable or you are getting sparkles, these boosters will allow you to see your HDMI video and hear your audio. These active 1080p HDMI boosters
or as some call them an HDMI extenders will give you the assurance that you will not loose any detail in your high definition picture, even if your DVD, satellite and/or cable receiver is 50+ feet away.
The built-in equalizer allows you to transmit high definition audio/video streams across long distances without any digital degradation. It also corrects any digital error in the data stream and provides 40dB of equalization to compensate for any cable transmission loss. To ensure a crystal clear HDTV picture it will stop any digital noise (sparkles).
So you need to create a long HDMI cable run? If you already own a couple of 10 or 15 feet HDMI cables, you may wish to join them together rather than buy a new longer cable paying anything upwards of 150-$200. You will need to invest in an HDMI booster of some description, as joining any two cables more than a few meters with a passive HDMI coupler, will almost certainly cause HDMI signal problems.
Although HDMI signal amplifiers are not new, there are few, if any, on the market that do not require an external power source, therefore requiring a large bulky package, plus the power supply.
The HDMI extender works with flat panels, plasma screens, projectors, switches, splitters, computer video displays, HDTV/HDCP, set-top boxes, DTVs and DVD players with HDMI. (Connectors: HDMI female to female).How to use the HDMI booster:
Connect a cable end which is coming from the source to the "Source" input on the booster. Then, connect another HDMI cable to the "Sink" output on the booster and the other end of the cable to the actual display ( Plasma, LCD, Projector or any other ). It might take 2 to 3 seconds to sink up with the signal.
These HDMI boosters will perform best if placed at the end of the cable with a short HDMI extension cable (not supplied) to the display. The extension cable should not be more then 13 feet.
Your video is only as good as the HDMI repeater that connects it. Why not buy an HDMI booster today?
