Tripp Lite, a manufacturer of power protection and connectivity products, has introduced a line of HDMI Extenders and Extender/Splitters. The B126 over Cat5 series extend HDMI signals up to 200 feet over a single Cat5 cable while maintaining display and sound. This is designed for situations in which the source is remotely located and signals must be transmitted over distances longer than conventional cables allow.
Implementation requires one Cat5e cable to extend the HDMI signal, allowing for installation for classrooms, businesses, and digital signage applications.††
