The NTI ST-IPHD-LC Low-Cost HDMI Over IP Network Extender multicasts digital video and audio signals to one or more receivers up to 330 feet away using CAT5e/6 cable.
The Low-Cost NTI ST-IPHD-LC HDMI Over 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.
NTI ST-IPHD-LC Features and Benefits:
- Supports HDTV resolutions to 1080p and computer resolutions to 1920x1200.
- Ideal solution for digital signage applications.
- Broadcast real-time HDMI video and audio signals to multiple display locations with a managed or 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 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 manage 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.
- If a non-managed network switch is used for a point-to-many connection, it is not recommended to use other network devices on the same switch 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.

Question: Do you have software that can read the feeds from the transmitter, or is it only the receiver that can pickup the stream?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. There is a web based interface for this device, used to set IP addresses and upgrade firmware, but we are not aware of any software to read the stream. The only way to pick up the data and render the video is through the receiver.
