Introduction
Introduction
Introduction
The PT-E-HD10 HDMI™ CAT Extender Extends 1 HDMI™ Signal over Single CAT with Bi-directional IR
pass-through boosts up your video/audio transmission distance up to 60m (200ft) in HDTV 1080i format,
and 40m (130ft) in HDTV 1080p format. PT-E-HD10 also supports the most advanced 3D video format
complaint with HDMI specification and therefore guarantees the highest 3D video compatibility on the
market. With only one cost effective Cat.X cable, users can readily extend HDTV sources from DVD players,
Blu-ray Disc player, PS3, PC, and any other kinds of sources compliant with TMDS to distant display
monitors including HDMI or DVI enabled TV sets or LCD PC monitors. With the advanced design for the
latest HDMI technology, deep color video, DTS-HD or Dolby TrueHD audio, and HDCP supports and
compatibility are all further insured. This flexibility makes HDCP compliant DVD players or PS3 transmit
utmost high quality video and audio with a greater distance at the minimal cost, when integrating several
components apart. In addition, PT-E-HD10 is also equipped with bi-directional IR pass-through path. This
bonus feature allows users to boost IR control distance up to 100m (330 ft) and makes IR control possible
through only single Cat.X cable including HDMI signals.
The PT-E-HD10 includes two units: transmitting unit PT-E-HD10-TX and receiving unit PT-E-HD10-RX.
The transmitting unit is used to capture the input HDMI / DVI signals with IR control packets and carry the
signals via one cost effective Cat.X cable. The receiving unit is responsible for equalizing the transmitted
HDMI signal and reconstructing IR signals. The transmission distance between the sending and receiving
units can be up to 60m (200ft) at HD 720p or 1080i; or 40m (130ft) at Full HD 1080p. With an 8-level
equalization rotary control on the receiving unit, users can adjust the equalization strength to the received

HDMI signals accordingly, and therefore optimize the transmission distance between source and
destination.
— Support HDMI Deep Color & full 3D
— Extend the transmission up to 60m (200ft) from the HDMI source at HD 1080i or 720p 24-bit
— Extend the transmission up to 40m (130ft) from the HDMI source at Full HD 1080p 24-bit
— Extend the transmission up to 20m (65ft) from the HDMI source at Full HD 1080p 36-bit
— HDCP 1.1 compliant
— Minimize the cable skew by adjustable 8-level equalization control
— Pure unaltered uncompressed 7.1ch digital HDMI over Cat.X cable transmission
— DTS-HD and Dolby True HD high bit rate audio support
— Support full frequency IR signal from 20KHz to 60KHz
— Bi-directional IR path
— Allows cascading
— Wall mounting housing design for easy and robust installation
— Perfectly integrated with other HDMI over Cat.X series products
The length depends on the characteristics and quality of the cables. Higher resolutions and longer
transmission distances require low skew cables (<25ns/100m) for best performance. Unshielded CAT6
with metal RJ-45 connectors is recommended.

Section 3: Notice
1. When adjusting the signal level on the receiver unit, please dial the rotary control switch from MIN to
MAX and stop turning the rotary switch whenever the audio/video is playing normally. Inappropriate
signal level setting may cause overpowering issue that would shorten the product life significantly!
2. If the DVI or HDMI device requires the EDID information, please use EDID Reader/Writer to retrieve
and provide DVI or HDMI display EDID information.
3. All HDMI over CAT5 transmission distances are measured using Belden 1583A CAT5e 125MHz UTP
cable and ASTRODESIGN Video Signal Generator VG-859C.
4. The transmission length is largely affected by the type of Cat-5/5e/6 cables, the type of HDMI sources,
and the type of HDMI display. The testing result shows solid UTP cables (usually in the form of 300m
[1,000ft] bulk cables) can transmit a lot longer signals than stranded UTP cables (usually in the form of
fixed length patch cords). Shielded STP cables are better suited than unshielded UTP cables. A solid
UTP Cat-5e cable shows longer transmission range than stranded STP Cat-6 cable. For long extension
applications, solid UTP/STP cables are the only viable choice.
5. EIA/TIA-568-B termination (T568B) for Cat-5/5e/6 cables is recommended for better performance.
6. To reduce the interference among the unshielded twisted pairs of wires in Cat-5/5e/6 cable, one can
use shielded STP cables to improve EMI problems, which is worsen in long transmission.
7. Because the quality of the CAT5/6 cables has the major effect on how long the transmission limit can
achieve and how good is the received picture quality, the actual transmission range is subject to one’s
choice of Cat-5/5e/6 cables. For desired resolutions greater than 1080i or 1280x1024, a Cat-6 cable is
recommended.
8. If your HDMI display has multiple HDMI inputs, it is found that the first HDMI input [HDMI input #1]
generally can produce better transmission performance among all HDMI inputs.
