1.0 INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing this Cat 5 HDMI extender system from Audio Authority.
The EDP-11 transmits HDMI signals digitally over Cat 5 cables. Using Cat 5e or
Cat 6 cables allows installers to use less expensive wire over longer distances,
and terminate the cables in the field. The EDP-11 can achieve distances from 115
to 195 feet depending on the type of cable used, and the resolution and audio bit
rate of the source and sink.
Note: the EDP-11 (Models 1384TD and 1384RD) Transmitter and Receiver only
operate together, and do not function with any other Cat 5 system components,
such as the 1381T or 1381R.
Audio Authority offers an extensive line of audio and video switchers,
converters, extenders and distribution amps available for purchase online at
www.audioauthority.com or through authorized dealers.

3.0 INSTALLATION
Before connecting the EDP-11 Cat 5 extender system, verify that the display
device on the receiving end can support the output resolution and signal format
by connecting it directly to the source device via a short, known good, HDMI
cable. The panel drawings below show the Cat 5 signal output/input connections,
power connection.

3.3 CONNECTING THE HARDWARE
1. Connect the HDMI source device’s output to the HDMI INPUT connector of the
1384TD Transmitter, using a short, high quality, HDMI cable.
2. Connect a correctly terminated and tested Cat 5 cable to the Cat 5 Output
1 connector of the Transmitter. Connect a second Cat 5 cable to the Cat 5
Output 2. Mark the cables at both ends so that you do not inadvertently swap
them. Do not connect the AC adapter until the Cat 5 cables are correctly
connected to both the transmitter and the receiver.

Again, always test the HDMI source on the intended display with a known
good HDMI cable before using the EDP-11. This precaution insures that the
source can be (and is) set to a resolution that is compatible with the display,
and that both are functioning correctly together.
3. At the remote location, connect the appropriate Cat 5 cables to the Cat 5 Input
1 and 2 connectors of the 1384RD Receiver. Be careful not to interchange the
1 and 2 cables.
4. Connect the HDMI OUTPUT of the 1384RD to the HDMI input of the video
display or other device, using the appropriate cable.
5. Connect the supplied AC adapter first to the 1384TD and then to the AC outlet.
6. Turn on the source device and video display. The source video signal should
appear on the display. If not, consult the Troubleshooting Guide in this manual.
4.0 TROUBLESHOOTING
• Check all of the HDMI connections to see if any of the connectors have
become loose.
• Make certain the 1384TD is connected to a live AC outlet and check the power
indicators on both units.
• Use a network cable tester to make certain your Cat 5e/6 cable is terminated
correctly and the RJ-45 connectors are securely attached to the cable at both
ends. Check for cable defects or damage.
• Temporarily connect the display device directly to the source with the 1384TD
HDMI connection cable, then test with the 1384RD connection cable. If an
image is present under those circumstances the display, the source, and the
HDMI cables can be eliminated as the cause of the problem. Make sure A/V
receiver is compatible
• If the above circumstances do not produce a picture, try a short, known good
HDMI cable, and make sure the source is set up to output a resolution that the
display can accept.
If you encounter difficulty, contact the Audio Authority Technical Support
department via email: support@audioauthority.com, or call 800-322-8346 or 859233-4599.
