Product Highlights

  • Extend 1080p video up to 330 ft via One CATx Cable
  • Use with cascaded network switches to extend to 1,000 feet
  • Supports Point-to-Point, Point-to-Many, & Many-to-Many connections
  • Digital Signage

The XTENDEX® Low-Cost HDMI Over Gigabit IP Extender multicasts digital video and audio signals to one or more receivers 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.

  • 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.
  • Support for multiple transmitters requires a managed network switch with VLAN/IGMP support. Standard LAN switches can only support one transmitter.
    • The managed switch must support port based IEEE 802.1Q VLAN, IGMP, and permit duplicate IP addresses across the VLAN domains.
    • Each VLAN acts as a separate HDMI Over IP Channel on the network.
    • Number of local and remote units that can be used is dependent on the backplane bandwidth of the switch.
    • Cascade managed network switches up to 3 levels, allowing the farthest display to be located up to 1,000 feet away from the source device. Each receiver can be located up to 330 feet away.
  • For a point-to-many connection, a standalone network with an unmanaged network switch, hub, or router can be used instead of a managed network switch.
    • It is not recommended to use any other network devices on this standalone network as it may cause a degradation in performance.
  • Uses M-JPEG technology to process image compression on a fixed bandwidth.
    • Note: at high resolutions, characters on PCs get noticeably fuzzy due to image compression and decompression process.
  • Local and remote units must be in the same LAN. The units do not support WAN connections.

    How to Access the Web Interface to Change Unit's IP Address
    After connecting the unit directly to the computer using CATx cable, temporarily set your computer's IP address to 192.168.168.xx to match the unit. Open a web browser and input the unit's factory default IP address: 192.168.168.55 (local) or 192.168.168.56 (remote), into the address bar. Change the IP addresses of the units to match your network's subnet. Revert your computer's network configurations to its original settings. The web interface can now be accessed through the newly assigned IP addresses.

  • "MCV has been buying KVM solutions from NTI for many years. They are a trusted and valued vendor. In one situation we ran into an installation in which a KVM was not the right fit. NTI did have a solution that fit what we needed to do - an HDMI over IP Extender. We bought and installed the ST-IPHD-LC in 2013, and on November 1st 2018 it finally failed. MCV is a power plant; we run 24/7/365, so that extender ran every day and every night for 5 plus years without issue. When it failed, we bought two more. It is simple to use and very cost effective. Not only would we buy it again, we did buy it again."

  • "I take care of physical security and electronic surveillance for our corporation. At each building I have at least two computers sitting in wiring closets that send camera feeds to TV monitors in different offices using your ST-IPHD-LC HDMI extenders. I love those!!! I just did an upgrade to the system that if they have a mouse at the office end they can manipulate their camera views."

  • "I discovered NTI's ST-IPHD-LC LC HDMI extender by accident when a super important CEO's HDMI extension went bad. Since we never purchased from NTI before, my boss was worried that the unit would fail or be incompatible with the existing setup. But it didn't. Not only that, it outperformed the other vendor's unit in that application! Ever since then, we have been purchasing frequently from NTI. Whenever I can get a product from NTI as opposed to elsewhere, I do."

  • "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."
