HDTV Supply's WolfPack™ HDMI Over CAT6 Balun is a simple, low cost system tested to deliver 1080p at 300 over standard CAT6 cables. The HDMI Extender over one CAT6 is a tool for extending your HDMI signal over long distances to a compatible HDMI display. Instead of using expensive HDMI cables, a CAT6 cable can be utilized to perform advanced functions like transferring Deep Color (12 bits/color) high definition 1080p video and digital audio with a bandwidth up to 225MHz. The transmitter equalizes and recovers incoming TMDS data before re-transmitting it in optimal quality regardless of the incoming signal quality.

The HDMI Over CAT6 set converts HDMI to standard TCP/IP and transmits the signal over your local area network or a single CAT6 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 CAT6 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 CAT6 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 CAT6 extender used an M-Jpeg technique to process image compressing with little image loss, even at 450 feet. The HDMI Extender also supports IR re-transmitting, so you can control the source device which which can be 120 meters away.

Q: Sometimes we see a message on the screen "Searching for TX", what is that?
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?
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 CAT6 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 - CAT6 cable support 3D or 4K?
No, please see our 4K HDMI to CAT6 Extenders.

Q: Does the remote IR work with a HDMI matrix switch or HDMI splitter?
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.
