The Gefen EXT-DP-144 1:4 Splitter for DisplayPort allows a DisplayPort-equipped source to be connected to four DisplayPort displays. EDID management provides rapid integration of source and displays. Two or more of these splitters can be connected together to create larger video distribution networks.
How It Works:
Connect a DisplayPort source to the input on the EXT-DP-144 splitter using the supplied DisplayPort cable. Connect up to four DisplayPort high-definition displays to the outputs of the 1:4 Splitter for DisplayPort.
Note: If the source and/or displays are not 100% DisplayPort compliant, a protocol-specific adapter will be required in order to connect the non-compliant source to the splitter, or to connect the splitter to the non-compliant display.

Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
The Gefen EXT-DP-144 DisplayPort Splitter can indeed be connected to a DisplayPort Over IP Extender either for broadcasting one of the two video outputs or for pulling the video input source from over the network. For full 4K video compatible extension, you may want to consider the Adder INFINITY Over IP Extender Solution, the Gefen EXT-DPKA-LANS Over IP Extender (transmitter and receiver required), or the Raritan DKX4-101 Over IP Gateway.
