Overview

The B126-1A1 HDMI over Cat5/Cat6 Active Extender Kit includes a transmitter unit and a receiver unit that work in tandem to extend an HDMI signal to a projector, monitor or television. The kit is ideal for digital signs, trade shows, presentations, classrooms, churches, retail settings and other applications where the source is located farther than conventional cables allow.

HDMI cable (see Tripp Lite's P568-Series) connects a monitor and the audio/video source to the transmitter's HDMI ports and another monitor to the receiver. Cat5e/6 cable connects the two units (for best results, use 24 AWG solid-wire Cat5e/6 cable, such as Tripp Lite's N202-Series).

The B126-1A1 can extend a 1080i (60 Hz) signal up to 200-ft. (60.96 m), a 1080p (60 Hz) signal up to 150-ft. (45.72 m) and a 3D signal up to 125-ft. (38.1 m). You can also connect up to three B126-110 remote repeaters in the chain (using Cat5e/6 cable) for a total of five HDMI displays and full signal extension of 700-ft. (213.36 m) (1080i), 500-ft. (152.4 m) (1080p) or 400-ft. (121.92 m) (3D).

In addition to crystal-clear video, the B126-1A1 delivers full, rich stereo and 7.1-channel surround sound (multi-channel or PCM) audio. Built-in equalization control lets you fine-tune the image quality at each remote display. Supports 24-bit True Color (8 bits per channel) and HDCP. Easy to set up with no software or drivers to install. Mounts to a wall, rack or pole using the included hardware.

Questions & Answers

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.
