"Item shipped right away and arrived within four days of ordering. I've ... always had excellent service. I highly recommend them."


The HL13 extends HDMI and IR signal over a TCP/IP network. One "Sender" can be used to extend the signal to multiple HL13 Receivers. The HL13 can also be used without a network switch as a "point-to-point" extender by using a single Cat5e/6 cable up to 330 ft.

NOTE: We reccomend using the HL13 on a dedicated network switch because of the high bandwidth that video requires. You may use it on an existing network but you might experience network delays or heavy compression on the video.

How This Works

This kit comes as a pair, with one sender unit and one receiver unit.

  1. Connect the units together with a Cat5e/6 cable. If you are connecting multiple receivers to one sender, connect all units to the network switch.
  2. Connect your HDMI cables from the sender and receiver units to their respective display or source device.
  3. Plug in the included power supplies.
  4. Optional: Connect the included IR cables to control your source device from the display location.

A: Yes, this unit uses compression to efficiently send the video signal over long distances.
A: No, it uses its own proprietary signal.

Pros: Product was easy to set up and worked just as we expected. WE used it to send video/audio to our nursery at church. Nursery workers were very pleased that they could watch the sermon and still care for the young children.

Cons: None that come to mind

Other: I would recommend anyone who is looking to be able to extend a HDMI signal any distance at all to look into the HL 13 HDMI and IR over Ethernet cable as a solution. I find it works as good as the more expensive unit that is on our projector system.

Pros: Versatile for the most part.

Cons: Not so great when using to display computer.

Other: Bought these for an event hall and the idea was to send video to an AV rack less than a 75' run to a Sewell Splitter and then to a projector and multiple TVs. When displaying cable or satellite feed it looks fine but when displaying a computer image it isn't that clear. I even bypassed the whole system and did a 25' run from the computer to the projector using one of these and it wasn't that clear and got complaints from clients. If I use a 100' HDMI from the computer to the projector and get a crystal clear image. Sewell Direct didn't know what to tell me so now I'm trying to figure out what to do here.
