The HDMI Over CAT5 set converts HDMI to standard TCP/IP and transmits the signal over your local area network or a single CAT5e/6 cable, whatever you choose. The great advantage of converting HDMI to TCP/IP is that you can now send HDMI over your entire network freeing you of the typical limitations found in send/receive point-to-point systems. The HDMI Over CAT5 delivers unparalleled performance in PRO-AV projection networks, digital signage systems and educational streaming applications. Now your network is your HDMI network!

The HDMI to CAT5 set is designed to convert an HDMI signal to standard TCP/IP and then transmit by an Ethernet internet cable to the supplied receiver. The HDMI to CAT5 extender used an M-Jpeg technique to process image compressing with little image loss, even at 300 feet. The HDMI Extender also supports IR re-transmitting, so you can control the source device which which can be 100 meters away.
You can also use the IR extender capability and control your source device from the viewing location. The Unique Backward-IR Channel allows you to control devices at the viewing location from the source equipment location. The target plugs into adapter at the end of the HDMI cable that connects it to the display and inserts IR over the HDMI cable back to the transmitter. See pictures in the above MORE PICTURES Tab.

A: Here are the IP addresses for the HDMI distribution set(s)...
- 192.168.168.55 - Transmitter
- 192.168.168.56 - Receiver
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: Will the Remote IR work with all remote controls?
A: The IR repeater works well with 36 KHz single band remotes but may not work with multi-band remotes used on a few satellite boxes. Look for 2 emitters on the nose of the remote. If you are pre-wiring make sure to run a 3rd cat5 cable so you can add an IR system that can handle multi-band remotes. If you have multi-band remotes you might want to upgrade your remotes to UHF, which goes through walls. This will bypass the IR system completely on the unit.
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.
