Getting Started
The Cat5 HDMI Extender system consists of Transmitter, Transceiver and Receiver. The system can
extend HDMI signals over Cat 5 / 5e / 6 FTP cable. By cascading Transceivers, it is possible to extend
the HDMI signals to almost any length.
The Cat5 HDMI Extender system is a great solution for digital signage, public information display,
and large scale demonstration, where crystal-clear, High-Definition digital video needs to be shown.
By taking the advantage of cost efficient Cat 5 / 5e / 6 cable, the Cat5 HDMI Extender can simplify
installation. With its unlimited cascading capacity, you can extend digital video displays almost
anywhere. The Transmitter and Transceiver units are fitted with magnetic pads, enabling them to be
quickly attached to metal surfaces. A screw fixing plate is also included for permanent
installations.

e. EQ Adjustment: You can adjust the EQ control to Auto Mode by rotating the EQ control
anti-clockwise. The “EQ” and “Auto” LEDs will display blue.
If noise or an unstable image is seen on the local HDMI monitor, adjust the EQ control
for best image display quality.
f.
LINK OUT: HDMI signal can be extended/cascaded over “LINK OUT” port by Cat 5 / 5e / 6
cable. The signal can be received by:
 HDMI-C5-R: The maximum HDMI distance is: < 30m (100 ft) for 480 / 720p / 1080i or
<15m for 1080p.
 LINK IN of HDMI-C5-SR: Maximum cascading distance is: <80m (275 ft) for 480p, 70m
(230 ft) for 720p / 1080i or <30m (100 ft) for 1080p.
 HDMI IN of HDMI-C5-4/HDMI-C5-8: To connect to the HDMI connector, a HDMI-C5-R
Receiver is required. Maximum cascading distance is: <80m (275 ft) for 480p, 70m (230
ft) for 720p / 1080i or <30m (100 ft) for 1080p.

Transceiver HDMI-C5-SR Installation
a. Monitor Connection: Connect HDMI monitor’s HDMI cable to Transceiver and turn on the
monitor.
b. Device Connection: Plug power adapter to HDMI-C5-SR, the “PWR” LED and “M1 LINK” will
turn ON. The “LINK IN” LED should turn off since there is no input of video signal from “LINK
IN” port.
Connection of HDMI Transceiver
c. HDMI Cascading: The RJ45 “LINK IN” port is designed to receive the HDMI signal from
Transmitter over Cat 5 / 5e / 6 cable. Follow “HDMI-C5-S Single Port Transmitter
Installation” to install Transmitter and extend the HDMI signal.

d. EQ Adjustment: You can adjust the EQ control to Auto Mode by rotating the EQ control
anti-clockwise. The “EQ” and “Auto” LEDs will display blue.
After connecting the extender system, if you see dynamic dots or unclear image on the
HDMI monitor, adjust the signal on HDMI Transmitter.
e. LINK OUT: The function of “LINK OUT” port on Transceiver will act the same as
Transmitter’s. It can extend/cascade HDMI signal to HDMI-C5-R, HDMI-C5-SR, HDMI-C5-4, or
HDMI-C5-8.

g. Addition System Expansion: The “RJ-45 HDMI OUT” port can also be used as link out port
for more system expansions.
Selection of Cable
a. Selection: Most makes and versions of Cat 5/5e/6 cables will work with DVI-C5-S
Transmitter and DVI-C5-R Transceivers. However, since the quality and characteristics of Cat
5/5e/6 cables varies it has been found that some perform better than others. The major
factor influencing the transmitting distance is the skew property of the cables. Skew
represents the difference in propagation delay between the fastest and slowest set of wire
pairs. A lower skew will mean a longer video transmitting distance.
Cat 5/5e/6 cable with a skew of lower than 15ns/100m should enable a cascading
length of:
< 80m (275ft) @ 480p
< 70m (230ft) @ 72p / 1080i
< 30m (100ft) @ 1080p
b. Skew Property: A Cat 5 / 5e / 6 cable with a skew lower than 15ns/100m should enable a
cascading length of <80m (275 ft) at 480p, <70m (230 ft) at 720p / 1080i and <30m (100 ft)
at 1080p.
c. Termination: The RJ45 terminations to the Cat 5/5e/6 cable must be made to the EIA 568B
specification.

d. Connect UTP Cable: Plug one end of the cable to Transmitter’s “LINK IN/OUT” port and the
other end to the Transceiver’s RJ45 “LINK IN/OUR” port. The monitor connected to the
Transceiver should now display and the “LINK” or “ACTIVE” LED should turn Green to
indicate the HDMI signal activation. Adjust the “EQ” control for best quality HDMI display.
Installation of Multiple Transceivers and Displays
a. Multiple Transceivers: By using additional HDMI-C5-SR Transceivers, it is possible to extend
the system almost indefinitely to remote HDMI displays.
Ensure that common grounding is maintained to minimize ground loops and
interference for larger group of cascaded Transceivers.

e. Function Test: After above installation, you will be able to broadcast the HDMI signal to
Receiver’s connected monitor.
