Our Wolfpack Network HDMI Matrix Switch can be configured using 1 - Transmitter and dozens of Receivers (TVs) using the appropriate size Ethernet Switch. It uses CAT 5e/6 cables and a Gigabit Ethernet LAN switch with MJPEG techniques and an industry standard IP protocol to deliver 1080p video from sources that are 300 feet away from the Ethernet switch and another 300 feet away to the TVs.
It also allows the system to grow in the field as its design allows you the flexibility of adding more displays to the system based upon the number of unused Ethernet ports available.
The transmitter has a static IP address and can pair with multiple receivers (up to 253). Multiple transmitters and multiple receivers can be paired on the same network.
NOTE: This is an updated version with new chipsets, splitter orders before March 2022 will not be compatable with the new chipsets.
HDMI to CAT5 Distribution Set Configuration Example:
Q: I have 5-TVs and 1-PC...1-TV 6 feet away, 1-TV 75 feet away, 2-TVs 150 feet away and 1-TV 225 feet away needing all the widescreens showing the same picture and having the same audio, what do I buy?
A: You will need to buy one 8-port Ethernet switch and 5-receivers plus 6-HDMI cables (see all above). A single HDMI to CAT5 transmitter comes with it.

Why not buy this HDMI to CAT5 Distribution today?
PLEASE PRINT THIS OUT AS PREPARATION FOR THE INSTALL.
Make sure all the devices are turned OFF or unplugged for the wall before you start.
1. Plug the supplied HDMI TRANSMITTER (TX) into an HDMI cable.
2. Plug the other end of the HDMI cable into your video and audio source like a DVD player, cable box, etc.
3. Plug the TRANSMITTERS RJ45 connector into a CAT5e/6 cable.
4. Plug the other end of the CAT5e/6 cable into any of the inputs on the supplied Ethernet switch.
The above takes care of sending the HDMI signal to the Ethernet switch. The below now shows how to connect the multiple TVs to the Ethernet switch.
1. Connect the CAT5e/6 cables from the TVs to any of the connectors on the Ethernet switch.
2. Connect the HDMI RECEIVERS (RX) to the TVs with a short HDMI cable.
3. Plug the CAT5e/6 cables into the RECEIVERS.
4. Plug all of your devices into the wall AC outlets and turn them ON. You should now see the source device on all of your widescreens.
That is all there is to it. We suggest, if possible, that you use different colored CAT5e/6 cables so you will know what signal goes where.

A: You will need one 16-port Ethernet switch and 12-receivers plus all cables (not supplied). The single HDMI to CAT5 transmitter comes with it.
Q: I have 5-TVs...1-TV 6 feet away, 1-TV 75 feet away, 2-TVs 150 feet away and 1-TV 225 feet away, what do I buy?
A: You will need one 8-port Ethernet switch and 5-receivers plus all cables (not supplied). The single HDMI to CAT5 transmitter comes with it.
Q: I need to send a cable box, a DVD player, a AppleTV and a to 15-widescreens 150 feet away with all showing the same picture, what do I buy?
A: You will need one 16-port Ethernet switch and 15-receivers plus all cables (not supplied) and our companion 4x1 HDMI switch with EDID. The single HDMI to CAT5 transmitter comes with it.
Q: Sometimes we see a message on the screen "Searching for TX", what is that?
A: That usually happens when the source is turned off or in a standby mode with the HDMI connector not outputting any signal. The (TX) transmitter is looking for a hot HDMI signal on its input.
Q: Does this HDMI over 1 - CAT5 cable support 3D or 4K?
A: No, please see our 4K HDMI to CAT5 Extenders.
Q: Does the remote IR work with a HDMI matrix switch or HDMI splitter?
A: These HDMI extenders will send both HDMI video and audio from a matrix or splitter, etc but the remote IR is designed to be used with only one source, like a cable box, to one widescreen. There would be too many IR cables to attach on the sources IR window. See our HDMI switchers and splitters that have it integrated.
