Don’t let the HDMI distance barrier hold you up. Use this extender to send your HDMI signal over a single inexpensive Cat5e (CAT6 is preferred) cable for up to 200 ft (60M).

HDMI over Cat5 Technology and the Limited HDMI Standard

HDMI over Cat5 technology is relatively new and vital to scenarios where high definition digital signals must be extended over distances longer than 16 feet. HDMI's distance spec officially states that, beyond 16 feet, the signal is not guaranteed to perfectly arrive without some sort of active boosting. This booster will overcome this distance limitation while providing a more cost effective cabling solution as well.

For the best quality over lengths exceeding 100ft. Sewell suggests using Pure Copper Cat5 cable or Cat6 cable. This shouldn't be a problem for most people, as the majority of Cat5 cable installed in homes meets these standards.

Cat5e cable, or ethernet cable, is a fraction of the cost of long HDMI cable, mainly due to the different requirements of building these two different cable types. HDMI cable typically requires much more copper and is much thicker than Cat5e networking cable. Also, many modern buildings these days are already wired with Cat5 cable, making this solution by far the most cost effective and least labor intensive solution available.

How This Works

This kit comes as a pair, with one sender unit and one receiver unit. Simply connect this pair together with one networking cable: unlike older technology, this extender uses only one cable for the HD signal, and for data (such as EDID and other control signals). Each set-up requires only one line of Cat5e. Once you've connected your HDMI cables to the sender and receiver boxes, and once the included power supplies are connected to both the receiver box and the sender box, your extension system is ready.

My Cat wire is split in a cabinet before heading back to tv. Will this work if an Ethernet connector is used to continue run?


As long as you have all four twisted pair terminated in a dedicated line from the sender to the receiver, it will work fine. Just please note that it can't go through a network or anything like that.
