Versatile configuration options
In a point-to-multipoint setup, you can connect the HDMI over IP kit through an unmanaged or managed Gigabit LAN portal. You can also connect one or several sources (transmitters) to multiple displays (receivers) over your network, usinga managed Gigabit Ethernet switch with IGMP. For further scalability, you can combine up to 16 different extender kits.
For smaller-scale applications, you can use the extender kit as a point-to-point video extender by connecting the transmitter and receiver units directly over Cat5 or Cat6 cabling for a one-to-one HDMI extension up to 330 feet (100 meters).
Manage your video distribution from your mobile device
This HDMI distribution kit features an easy-to-use video control software app that helps you manage your IP video distribution.

The kit includes optional mounting hardware for a tidy installation. Ideal for high-definition applications, the extender supports 1080p video resolutions and digital stereo audio.
