Techlogix Networx TL-TP50-HDIR HDMI & IR over Shielded Twisted Pair Cable Extender -- 50m
HDMI cables are great for transmitting audio and video signals short distances, but larger buildings and larger rooms often need electronics inline to ensure signal performance. Simply pulling a long HDMI cable or connecting multiple HDMI cables together can cause signal drop out, interference, pixelization and a host of other signal and performance problems.
The TL-TP70-HDIR replaces a traditional HDMI cable with active electronics designed specifically for sending video signals up to 230 feet. Plus, built-in IR control signal embedding allow you to also transmit bi-directional IR commands with the HDMI stream.
In actual practice, this means you can use the TL-TP70-HDIR to send audio and video signals from your source device (often a switcher, cable box, or DVD player) to your destination device (often a display or projector) and control the source device remotely...all using a single twisted pair cable. In other words, you can install your source device in a remote closet or cabinet and control it with the same remote control used for your display. Now that’s a clean installation!
