HDMI Extender over Cat 5 and Cat 6 - Extends HDMI and IR Signal up to 50m

The HDMI Extender over Single Cat5e/6 with Bi-directional IR extends high definition video and audio signals and IR, at a distance of up to 164ft/50m over a single Cat5e/6 cable. Features EDID management, which allows and encourages source and display “handshake” for seamless integration. With only one cost effective Cat5e/6 cable, high definition sources with HDMI outputs can be connected to high definition displays with HDMI inputs over long distances. Deep color video, DTS-HD or Dolby True HD audio is supported and compatible with the extender. In addition, the extender is also equipped with bi-directional IR pass-through which allows for source or display control.

The extender includes two units: transmitting unit and receiving unit. The transmitting unit is used to capture the HDMI input with IR signals and carries the signals via one cost effective Cat5e/6 cable. The receiving unit is responsible for equalizing the transmitted HDMI signal and reconstructing IR and serial control signals. The extender offers the most convenient solution for HDMI extension over a single Cat5e/6 with long distance capability, and is the perfect solution for any application.

Doesnt work on Cat 5

By: on 20 January 2019
Tried this unit over 40m with Cat5E cable without any success. Interesting that the cable input on the unit is marked Cat6 but is advertised as Cat5E/6. Have bought a different brand for Cat5 and works perfectly.

Nifty Solution

By: on 1 August 2018
This product was selected to solve a problem that arose from a change not invisaged. I was installing a security camera system that originally was going to require the NVR to sit on a desk. The requisite Ethernet cable was installed to go back to the router. This was a new install before the plasterboard was fixed. The decision was made after this that having the NVR on desk probably wasn’t a good idea. That’s when the product above became a ‘Nifty Solution‘ allowing the NVR to be mounted with the router and camera switcher. After installing the above HDMI. Ethernet TX -RX combo we were very pleased with the outcome. I can absolutely recommend the product, it’s a lifesaver!
