At times, a source device (PC, laptop, AV receiver, cable box, DVD player, video game system, etc.) will not have enough voltage and current dedicated to the HDMI output to drive a long HDMI cable. This will cause a voltage drop and the video quality is affected, or worse, there is no audio or video at all.
The HDMI Cable Booster i.e. Voltage Inserter
may solve this problem by isolating the power from the source device and providing a dedicated power signal to give the crisp, clean signal that is expected from high definition equipment.NOTE 1:
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 Pioneer, Yamaha, Onkyo, Integra 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.
Pin 18 of the 19 pin HDMI cable provides +5V signal off of the HDMI source device to power it. If your cable has a small gauge that +5V will deteriorate over a long distance and this HDMI Cable Booster can supply up to 1 amp to help in boosting that voltage and improve your picture.NOTE 2:
This HDMI Cable Booster (Voltage Inserter) works only at the source, or like a PC or AV receiver, etc., not at the HDTV.
