Extend hdmi over ip up to 330 feet - on a tight budget!

by Stuart Berry June 29, 2016

At last, an inexpensive way to extend your HDMI! The XTENDEX® HDMI Over Gigabit IP Extender multicasts digital video and audio signals up to 330 feet away over a 1000Base-T Gigabit Network connected with CAT5e/6 cable.

Each Low-Cost HDMI Over Gigabit IP Extender consists of a local unit that connects to an HDMI source, and a remote unit that connects to an HDMI display. The local and remote units can be connected together for a Point-to-Point connection via CATx or a Point-to-Many connection via a network switch. Support for multiple transmitters requires a managed network switch.

Matt Langdon from ACF Technologies, Asheville, North Carolina, purchased the extenders. "We use the ST-IPHD-LC extenders for digital signage. We set up our PC running the information being broadcasted in a server closet and broadcast to multiple TVs within our customer's facilities. The extenders work very well."

This extender has an array of features:

  • Supports HDTV resolutions to 1080p.
  • Ideal solution for digital signage applications.
  • Broadcast real-time HDMI video and audio signals to multiple display locations with a managed or unmanaged (also known as non-managed) network switch.
  • Transmits an HDMI signal over one CAT5e/6 cable.
  • Plug-and-Play installation allows receivers to find the transmitters automatically on the same subnet. (Network configuration may be required for managed network switch.) Web interface for changing IP addresses, firmware updates and resetting units to factory default settings.
  • Easily expandable. Add remote units as you add monitors.
  • Inexpensive CAT5e/6 cable replaces bulky video cables.
  • Supports 10/100/1000 Ethernet connection.
  • Built in default EDID table.
  • HDCP compliant.
