The B126-004 transmits a 1080p (60Hz) signal to four monitors up to 150 ft. away using Cat5e/6 cable. To achieve maximum distance and resolution, use 24Awg Solid Wire Cat5e/6 cable. (Tripp Lite's N202-Series) Daisychain up to three B126-004 transmitters to connect up to 13 monitors (1 Local, 12 Remote). Supports 24-bit True Color (8-bits per channel), HDCP, 3D, and both stereo audio and 7.1 channel surround sound audio (7.1 channel surround sound signal will be Multi-Channel or PCM).

Installation is simple. Connect the B126-004 transmitter to an HDMI source using a Tripp Lite P568-Series HDMI cable (not included). Connect a Tripp Lite B126-series receiver (not included) to each display using a Tripp Lite P568-Series HDMI cable (not included). Finally, each remote receiver is connected to an RJ45 port on the B126-004 using a single Cat5e/6 cable.

For longer extension distances, use a B126-1A0 or B126-1A0-WP-1 active receiver:

  • A 1080p (60Hz) signal can be transmitted up to 150 ft.
  • A 1080i (60Hz) signal can be transmitted up to 200 ft.
  • A 3D signal can be transmitted up to 125 ft.

For shorter distances, use a B126-1P0 or B126-1P0-WP passive receiver:

  • A 1080p (60Hz) signal can be transmitted up to 50 ft.
  • A 1080i (60Hz) signal can be transmitted up to 100 ft.
  • Cannot be use for a 3D signal

Further extend the signal range or add more displays by using a Tripp Lite B126-110 Remote Repeater unit:

  • Add up to three repeaters on each channel of the B126-004 for a total of 4 displays per channel (A receiver should be the last unit in a channel)
  • A 1080p (60Hz) signal can be extended up to 125 ft. for each repeater added into a channel
  • A 1080i (60Hz) signal can be extended up to 175 ft. for each repeater added into a channel
  • A 3D signal can be extended up to 100 ft. for each repeater added into a channel

Answer: 
To simplify that answer, all displays will get the picture at the same resolution. If you have 3 displays: 720p, 1080i, and 1080p, for the 720p device to be able to have a signal it can actually use, you must drop the resolution to 720p. the 1080i and 1080p displays can handle 720p, and everyone is happy.

Answer: 
If you mean that the monitors can run different resolutions at the same time then the answer is no.

If you want to use the different monitors (with different max resolutions) running one same resolution, then yes it can as long as the source is set to the lowest. A low resolution monitor will have problems supporting a higher resolution video.

Answers

Answer: 
Patch panels, wall-jacks, etc. should not be used between B126 products as they break up a signal to where the receiver can’t rebuild back to the original HDMI signal format before sending out to the TV.

So with that said, connections ALWAYS have to be transmitter to receiver, nothing in between.

[FAQ-802] I have some unused runs in my Ethernet network. Can I patch the B126 equipment through my patch panel and wall plates to connect to a remote TV?

No. The Cat5e/6 connection between the B126 Transmitter and Receiver has to be a single, point-to-point patch cable, made with solid conductor wire, per the Owner's Manual. Patching through patch panels, wall jacks and stranded conductor patch cables create multiple points of signal attenuation (loss), causing the HDMI signal to degrade to the point where the Receiver will not recognize it.[Last Updated: Mar 24, 2011]
