Extend HDMI over CAT6a cables -- up to 150 feet (50m)

The GefenTV HDMI 1.3 Over CAT6 Extender extends HDMI over just two CAT6a cables and supports HDMI 1.3 features such as Deep Color, 1080p Full HD and uncompressed 7.1 audio. DVI-D Computer video can also be extended when using a DVI-to-HDMI cable, optionally available.

By using standard CAT6A cable, the GefenTV HDMI 1.3 Over CAT6 Extender makes HDMI signal extensions easier to install within a room or through walls. The Extender's pure digital transmission method insures 100% signal integrity over long distances.

How It Works

The GefenTV HDMI 1.3 Over CAT6 Extender system consists of a Sender and a Receiver unit. An HDMI source such as a set-top box, DVD player, or gaming console connects to the Sender unit with the supplied HDMI cable. The Receiver unit connects to the extended HDTV display. Two CAT6a cables link the GefenTV HDMI 1.3 Over CAT6 Extender's Sender and Receiver units, up to 150 feet apart. Power is applied to both the Sender and the Receiver units with the included 5V DC power supplies and a crisp, flawless picture emerges on the HDTV display along with pristine multichannel digital audio.


The GefenTV HDMI 1.3 Over CAT6 Extender is fully HDCP compliant.

The GefenTV HDMI 1.3 CAT6 Extender can also use CAT5/CAT5e cables to achieve shorter extension distances. Due to the many types of CAT5 cables, it is not possible to estimate these distances.

Distance Limits of Extension:

HDMI signal extension distance depends on the amount of digital bandwidth used by the HDMI signal for AV information being sent:

20m (66 feet) ---- HDMI 1.3 w/Deep Color, 1080p HD and Dolby TrueHD Lossless Multichannel 7.1 Audio

30m (100 feet) -- HDMI 1.2 at 1080p with Multichannel 5.1 Audio
