The XTENDEX® HDMI Over Gigabit IP Extender multicasts digital video and audio signals to one or more receivers up to 333 feet away over a Second-Generation (2G) 1000BASE-T Gigabit Network connected with CAT5e/6/7 cable.


Each 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.

    How to Set-up a Matrix Switch Configuration Using Multiple Transmitters and Receivers and a Managed Network Switch
    A managed network switch with VLAN/IGMP support is required to set-up a matrix switch configuration using multiple transmitters and receivers. Each VLAN configuration acts as a separate HDMI Over IP channel on the network. Display receivers attached to a port on the managed network switch can be connected to any chosen VLAN to display that particular HDMI channel. Configuration settings can be controlled via a managed switch's own web interface (where applicable), with IP commands, or the switch's RS232 control port. Control software on a PC or other other home automation controller hardware, such as Control4 or Creston, can be used to simplify the process of commanding the managed network switch.
