Using this HDMI over Ethernet Cat5e/6 Extender kit you can extend the range of your 1080P High-Speed HDMI signal from satellite set-top boxes, cable boxes, DVD players, digital video recorders (DVR), gaming consoles and more up to 50 meters(164 feet). You can also extend and repeat your infrared (IR) remote control signals, so you can control your equipment from the destination room without needing to use any other equipment. Full EDID management supports source and display handshakes to facilitate seamless integration. The loop back feature on the sending unit supports an HDMI output before the run. The device fully supports ARC (Audio Return Channel) allowing upstream propagation of sound.
Extending an HDMI signal long distances can be difficult with the cost and bulky size of long HDMI cables.
