Many AV systems rely on IR control signals to control the source and display. However, there are also many circumstances that an AV systems IR emitter is not visible because of obstruction. In these types of scenarios, an IR cable is very useful in finding a space for an IR emitter to be placed for efficient function. IR cables are able to extend your IR signal to a proper place for a remote to clearly communicate with the device/’s you are controlling. In certain applications, you may need plenum rated IR cable/’s to travel through ceilings, floors or walls.
