HD-Link HL14 by Sewell, 1×4 HDMI Splitter Over cat5e/6, 200 ft Description
Style:1×4 HDMI Splitter over Cat5e This 1×4 HDMI Splitter Extender is designed for extending one HDMI signal over long distances to up to four displays. This long distance transmission is accomplished using cat5e/6 cable with RJ45 heads and ports. The maximum distance you can cover is 200 feet. But of course due to interference from the environment, that distance may be shorter in your actual setup. The HD-Link HL14 distributes the input of the HDMI signal into four identical outputs simultaneously. Four HDMI Extender Receivers connected by Cat5e/6 receive the distributed signal from the splitter and transmit to displays individually at up to 1080p resolutions. This HDMI Splitter Extender offers solutions for retail, showrooms, conference rooms, schools, data centers, and many more environments in which you need the same display in multiple locations. Does the Type of Cat5e or Cat6 Cable You Use Matter? Since Cat5e/Cat6 extenders (aka Baluns) work differently than typical ethernet networks, the quality of the network cable you use really does matter. The bottom line is that Ethernet networks have corrective measures in place to help balance the data load and prevent packet loss, while point-to-point extenders like this don’t have this option. For this reason, using cable with extra shielding and extra-robust conductors (like our PureRun Link SSTP Cat6 cables made for extenders) to overcome any potential attenuation issues is recommended. For the best quality over lengths exceeding 100ft. Sewell suggests using Pure Copper Cat6 cable.
