 Extend a source at 1080p up to 330ft over single CATx cable with HTR HDBaseT extender receiver
(230ft with HCE II Rx)
 HT-150’s CATx (HDBaseT) output can send signal directly to PureLink HDBaseT extender receiver,
eliminating the need of matching transmitter
 Uncompressed high definition video up to 1080p@60Hz
 HDMI 1.4 with 3D support
 HDCP compliant
 Local HDMI output for in room display, AVR, or cascading to another distribution amplifier

Caution :
 HT-150 is not designed to work in a network environment, do not connect it to network to avoid
damage
 Do not place IR transmitter near from IR receiver to avoid mutual interference
 The CATx wiring must be away from any elecromagnetic wave equipment, i.e : mobile phone,
microwave, radio, fluorescent lamp, high voltage power lines.
1.8 EDID Management
PureLink HT-150 provides Auto EDID management system; easy and fail safe way to handle EDID, via
pre-loaded factory default 1080p 2ch and EDID emulation.
What's EDID?
Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) is an information set that digital display provides to describe its
capabilities to a Video source. Video source will know what kinds of displays are connected and it will
determine which resolution to Output according to the EDID information received from the display.
The EDID normally includes manufacturer name and serial number, sets of capable resolution including native
resolution, supported timing, pixel mapping data (for digital displays only) and etc.
In a digital connectivity environment; in order to support the maximum resolution of connected monitor, EDID
handshake is a critical because improper EDID handshake between sources to the display will result in no
image on the display.
EDID handshake may sound simple; however, with multiple peripheral devices within the chain, display's EDID
information easily get lost or blocked while it is traveling to the source device.
HT-150 provides Auto EDID management system to meet today’s sophisticated digital connectivity integration
environment. There is an EDID setting DIP switch on the back of the unit;

1.9 IR cable connection guide
There are two (2) IR ports on the HT-150 unit, 1 x IR Tx, and 1 x IR Rx.
IR Tx port is to send IR signals to remote location AV devices (mostly displays) via CATx (HDBaseT) cable
from a local source near HT-150 (ex. Blu ray player).
IR Rx port is to receive IR signals from remote location AV devices (mostly displays) via CATx (HDBaseT)
cable to control a local source near HT-150 (ex. Blu ray player).
* Please note that HT-150 can only send same IR commands to all outputs. If more than one of the displays
Share the same IR codes, they will react to the commands simultaneously. To avoid this, please use different
brands or models of the displays.
Common IR cabling application would be like below diagram;
