General Specification
1. HCE is a HDMI extension system over CAT5 cable for long distance up to 165ft.
2. Its compact & durable design and low power consumption makes it an ideal solution
for connection for high definition video and audio signal of digital displays such as
LCD/Plasma monitor and Projector.
