HD-Link HL13, HDMI and IR over Cat5e/6, TCP/IP, 330ft
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.
How This Works
This kit comes as a pair, with one sender unit and one receiver unit.
NOTE: We recommend 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.
With Gigabit Router

I needed to get HDMI from a cabinet in the room to a built in TV nook over a fireplace with 1/2 conduit being the only access. I ran the Cat 5 through the conduit and uses these converters to transmit the signal. They work great, the pictures is just as sharp as direct hook up, and the units themselves are nice looking and constructed with quality. Great purchase!
This is the second unit I've ordered and they both work great. Get a great picture and audio with no distortion.
Pros: Easy to set up, small size, and quality of workmanship are all a huge plus.Cons: none.Other:
Pros: Affordable, small and rugged. Exceptional low-latency performance. Easy to set up and use.Cons: One of the DC adapters didn't work, but we had an extra from a previous converter we were replacing (same amperage)Other: These were used for a church AV system. We replaced a previous installation from two years ago that was built on HDBitT equipment. At the time, HDBaseT was the only other technology we were aware of and it was stupid expensive, so we went with the BitT equipment. The latency was pretty terrible, probably 500-600ms. I would guestimate the latency of this gear to be around 125-150ms. It is also much cheaper than the previous gear we just replaced. We used all Cat5E two years ago and some of our runs down to the nursery, etc are probably close to the 330ft max. Amazing little units - don't hesitate to purchase them!
Pros: I hooked this up through a 100 ft Cat-5 cable and it works great. This solved a problem I was having with my WiFi router interfering with a wireless HDMI setup. The box has lots of cooling slots so I'm not worried about thermal problems either.Cons: Other:
