The Gefen EXT-EXT-HDMI-CAT5-444 is a 4x4 HDMI CAT5 Matrix which offers flexibility and convenience by routing high definition audio/video from any of four HDMI video sources to any of 4 remote displays over inexpensive, standard CAT5 cabling.  Each remote display has a control box that allows the viewer to select any of the 4 video sources and control that source via an IR remote control  as if the viewer was standing in the room where the source originates.

Full High-Resolution HDTV signals are supported up to a resolution of 1080p at a maximum distance of 150 feet and 1080i resolutions can be extended up to 300 feet. The Gefen HDMI CAT5 Matrix works with HD-DVD players, TiVo systems, HT PCs, and satellite set-top boxes that connect to an HDMI display. Every source is accessible at all times by any display by selecting it with an IR remote.

How the HDMI Cat5 Matrix works:

You connect up to 4 local video sources to the CAT5-Matrix's inputs. Then run each of your CAT5 cables from the Matrix to the destination displays. At each remote display, terminate the CAT5 cable run with a HDMI CAT5-MS Receiver device. Connect each Receiver to a display and you're all set.

Note: This HDMI product supports BOTH Audio and Video signals.
