HDMI is a marvel of technology. Digital pulses zoom over delicate wires, bringing you audio and video in sharp clarity and contrast. Paired with the newest LED televisions, it can certainly seem as though little slices of life are being beamed across time and space, directly onto your screen. HDMI is a sprinter, though, and not well-suited to marathon runs. Depending on output strength, cable quality, and a number of other factors, you might find yourself losing signal before you get to where you’re going. Resolution is usually the first to drop, followed by the sound or image. It doesn’t matter how long your cable is- if the signal can’t make it, you’ve got one high-tech jump rope.
The job of HDMI repeaters and extenders is to train or push the signal to go farther. There are several different ways to do that. One of the most reliable ways is Atlona’s AT-HDRX-RSNET. This HDBaseT HDMI receiver uses a single Cat5E or Cat6 cable to run the signal over longer distances. With a boost from external power, you can expect to get up to 230 feet of flawless HDMI performance, quadruple the distance you would get with an HDMI cable alone. This handy device is HDCP compatible and it can support high-definition resolutions up to 4Kx2K for 130 feet and 1080p for 230 feet. This set even includes advanced features such as RS232 networking and IR remote control extender capabilities.
Set-up is simple and mainly involves plugging in your cables and the included power supply. A power supply does not need to be connected to the receiver side because the power continues through the Ethernet cable from the transmitter on the other side. Locking HDMI ports help you keep your connection strong and there is a USB port for firmware upgrades along the way. This product is the receiver only. With this unit, you will also need the AT-HDTX-RSNET.
