You’ve heard about wireless HDMI, but you want the flexibility of being able to put your source and displays wherever you like without having to rely on a difficult-to-install system of adapters, transceivers, and repeaters. The solution is a hdmi extender over cat6 from hdmiswitches.com that can transmit your audio/video signal through an Ethernet cable instead of an expensive HDMI cable that might not reach where you need it to go.
The hdmi input on the extender goes into a hdmi output/transmitter, and the hdmi input on the receiver end goes into a hdmi output/transceiver. This allows for long distance transmission of hd video (1080p or higher) signals for source devices such as blu-ray players, dvd players, xbox 360s, etc. However, keep in mind that this type of device does not convert any analog audio signals to digital optical like the word.
Easily extend your HDMI video and audio over standard Cat6/Cat5 networking cables using this USB powered hdmi extender via ethernet. This device works by converting the HDMI input into standard TCP/IP network packets and then sending them over a regular UTP CAT5e or better Ethernet. Hanging televisions is now easy with our hdmi wall plate or huder hdmi wall plate which allows for a clean installation in areas with limited space, no more looking for a Weatherproof Cat6 Cable on the floor to hide a power box.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) cables can be used to connect up video display devices like monitors and televisions over a variety of different interfaces. There are several reasons why you might want to use an HDMI extender over cat6, but the most common reason is that transmitting an hdmi signal over long distances requires hdmi baluns or hdmi matrix switchers.
The hdmi extenders or HDMI signal boosters as they are also known as, allow the transmission of hdmi signals from a source to a display at a distance. This can be advantageous if you have sources that are too far away from the display, the hd characteristics of hdmi cables allows for long runs but they can still introduce problems such as hdcp issues and hdr compatibility. The hdcp (high-bandwidth digital content protection) is designed to protect hd content transmitted along hdmi connections, it encrypts certain data sent across hdmi cables to ensure its integrity.
