HD-Link HL24 Receiver by Sewell HDMI over any 2 conductive cables
Extend an HDMI signal up to two miles with any conductive cable you might have. Pick a cable and it will work: Cat5e/6, speaker wire, coax, telephone wire, coat hangers, and even water. Perfect for installs with existing wiring or whenever running new cables is not an option.
Does it really reach two miles?
Yes, it does, but with everything magical there's always a catch. A lot of processing is happening in each unit, resulting in some compression and significant latency. The latency is about half of a second, which makes a remote controller feel laggy. The compression quality is pretty good, but definitely noticable under close scrutiny.
This is a fantastic solution for digital signage, static images, or casual movie and TV viewing. For gaming or other applications that require frequent input, we recommend low-latency extenders such as the HD-Link HL15.
How This Works
This kit comes as a pair, with one sender unit and one receiver unit. Here's how to set it up:
- Connect the Sender to the Receiver unit with any two conductive wires.
- Connect the HDMI cables from the sender and receiver units to their respective display and source device.
- Optional: Connect the IR receiver cable to the receiver unit and the IR emitter to the sender unit to control the video source from the display location.
- Optional: Connect a local display to the Sender via HDMI cable.
- Plug in the included power supplies.
The HL24 Allows for multiple configurations such as Point-to-Point, Daisy Chain, or Multi-Wire. This would require additional Receivers which are available for purchase individually.
Strike Banana Plugs
Included are two pairs of our Low-profile Strike Banana Plugs. Simply attach these to your cables to make setting up the HL24 easier.
