We have tried several HDMI extenders and we can say that this 50m Cat.6 HDMI & IR Extender is one of the best.
HDMI cables stop working over 20m in length, and that includes any HDMI leads from the wall sockets to the displays or projectors.
One solution is to use Extenders to send HDMI over Cat 6 cable, there is a transmitter and a receiver which are connected using cheap Cat 6 cable.
The advantage of using Cat 6 cable is that its light and much easier to fix in place than heavy HDMI cables. You could use tour quality flexible Cat 6 if you are using the extenders on an event.
The extenders can be tuned to suit your approximate cable lengths using dip switches.
For added convenience IR signals (20-60 kHz) can also be extended using the supplied IR Receiver and Emitter cables.
The extenders support resolutions up to Full HD 1080p, including 1080p 3D, the Extender is designed for use in AV and digital signage applications.
The Extender features an HDMI loop-through output on the Transmitter with simultaneous viewing so that a local display can be connected for monitoring or to create an additional viewing zone.
To ensure the maximum compatibility when two displays are connected the EDID data, which determines the supported video and audio formats, can be used from either a local monitor connected to the Transmitter or the remote monitor connected to the Receiver.
The extender operates from a single power supply connected to the Transmitter, allowing the Receiver to be located where there is limited access to mains power sockets.
The maximum lengths and resolutions are possible with a direct connection between Transmitter and Receiver using good quality Cat.6 solid core cable. Using a different cable type, or introducing wall plates, couplers or patch panels will result in a reduction of possible distances.
