HDMI Distribution and Extension Over CAT-5 Cable

HDMI Distribution and Extension Over CAT-5 Cable

The new rack-mountable Gefen 1:5 Splitter for HDMI over CAT-5 performs two functions, allowing any HDMI source signal to be split and delivered to five displays simultaneously. It can also extend four displays up to 45 meters (150 feet) over CAT-5 cables. At this distance, 1080p full HD is delivered instantly using the standard

cabling; resolutions up to 1080i can be extended even further to 90 meters (300-feet). Users can also connect five displays locally using standard HDMI cables, or extend just one, two, three or four displays as needed. Both video and audio are transmitted over the same two CAT-5 cables allowing for a simple method of extension. Gefen's 1:5 Splitter for HDMI over CAT-5 (MSRP $2,249) works with all of today's HDMI devices, including gaming systems, set-top boxes, Blu-ray players and more.
