Overview

The B160-101-HDSI HDMI over IP Gigabit LAN Ethernet Extender Kit extends and distributes HDMI or DVI audio/video, RS-232 serial and IR (infrared) remote signals from the source to the display located up to 328 feet (100 meters) away, which is more than 200 feet farther than a traditional Cat5e/6 solution. By adding a chain of low-cost unmanaged network switches, such as Tripp Lite’s NG5, you can continue extending the distance between source and display up to 328 feet per switch.

Create a multi-in, multi-out installation with up to 64 transmitters and 255 receivers* by including dedicated managed Ethernet network switches** with Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP), such as Tripp Lite’s NSS-G16D2. With a compatible B160-Series receiver, you can send the HDMI or DVI video source (a DVI adapter cable is included) to any analog or digital display, including VGA and DisplayPort™, allowing you to mix and match technologies and use existing monitors. The IGMP-enabled switch will let you manage all connections for centralized control over which sources show on which displays.

The B160-101-HDSI supports video resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 (1080p) at 60 Hz in a point-to-multipoint switch installation. It extends IR control signals that control a source, such as a Blu-ray™ player, to a remote display, as well as RS-232 signals at serial baud rates up to 57600 Bps. The transmitter and receiver units mount to a wall, rack or pole using the including hardware.


*Unmanaged switch installations are limited to two transmitter units. Number of receivers is limited to number of ports remaining on unmanaged switch.
**B160-Series designed for use with dedicated network switch. Connecting to a switch used with other networking equipment will result in degraded or non-functional performance.

Frequently Asked Questions

The DVI to HDMI adapter cables should only be used on the input side of the transmitter, connecting DVI sources to the input of your B160-XXX-HDSI transmitters. Using these cables to connect DVI monitors to your B160-XXX-HDSI receivers will generate a purple screen on your monitor or TV.

Additional FAQs may be available on the B160101HDSI model support page.
