Intelix DIGI-HDMI-HR-R Installation Manual Introduction Designed for use with Intelix HDMI twisted pair matrices, the active Intelix DIGI-HDMI-HR-R balun transmits an HDMI (high-definition multimedia interface) audio/video signal up to 150 feet over inexpensive twisted pair cabling, such as Cat 5e or Cat 6. The DIGI-HDMI-HR-R supports standard HDTV resolutions and is HDCP compliant. Two individual runs of twisted pair cable are required when installing the DIGI-HDMI-HR-R balun. The unit is fully compatible with Cat 5e and Cat 6. In environments susceptible to high electromagnetic interference, two shielded twisted pair cables should be used. The Intelix DIGI-HDMI-HR-R includes one receive balun, one power supply, and one mounting bracket. Installation Caution: Do not attempt to disassemble or alter the balun housing. There are no user-serviceable parts inside the unit. Doing so will void your warranty. To install the Intelix DIGI-HDMI-HR-R baluns, perform the following steps: 1. Turn off power and disconnect the audio/video equipment by following the manufacturer’s instructions. Caution: To minimize the possibility of equipment damage from electrostatic discharge (ESD), all source and destination equipment must be powered off during installation. This includes signal extenders, splitters, and switches. 2. Make certain that outlets and cross connects to which you will connect the DIGIHDMI-HR-R are configured properly and labeled correctly to identify the point-topoint circuit. Caution: Do not connect the balun to a telecommunication outlet wired to unrelated equipment. Doing so may damage the unit or any connected equipment. Ensure all connected twisted pair cabling is straight-through (point-to-point). 3. Verify the desired twisted pairs are not being used for other LAN or telephony equipment. Note: For your convenience, it is recommended that you uniquely mark the ends of the twisted pair cable before pulling them through a wall or conduit. 4. Verify that the source and destination equipment work when directly connected with an HDMI cable. Be sure to test both HDMI cables required for system installation. 5. Connect the DIGI-HDMI-HR-R receive balun to the HDMI input of the receiving device at the remote end. Do not connect the 5V power supply. 6. Connect the opposite ends of the twisted pair cables to a compatible Intelix HDMI twisted pair matrix. Ensure the cable conforms to EIA 568B crimp standards and there are no split pairs or taps. 7. Connect the 5V power supply to the DIGI-HDMI-HR-R receive balun. 8. Power-on the video equipment. 9. Verify picture quality. Troubleshooting Symptom No signal Status LED is off No signal Status LED is off No signal Probable Causes Incorrect cable termination Possible Solutions Verify that both ends of the twisted pair cables use 568B crimp pattern. Incorrect cable connection Swap the twisted pair cables in the AV and HDCP RJ45 inputs on the receive balun. Insufficient power Verify the power supply is connected to either the send or receive balun. Verify the power LEDs on both the send and receive units are brightly illuminated. Unusual colors in the video No signal Screen is completely snowy HDMI synchronization issues Video signal exceeds bandwidth of cabling Speckling in the video image Power off the destination device and power it back on to force renegotiation. Unplug and re-plug the HDMI cable from receive balun to force renegotiation. Use shorter runs of twisted pair cabling. Drop the HDMI signal to the next lower resolution; i.e., decrease resolution from 1080i to 720p, etc. Replace the twisted pair cable with a higher grade twisted pair cable; i.e., replace Cat 5e with Cat 6. Occasional signal dropouts Video without audio Speckling in the video image Unsupported video resolution Video without audio Unsupported audio codec If the destination device is incapable of displaying the video signal, alter the source signal; i.e., decrease resolution from 1080i to 720p, etc. Change source device to output PCM other than Bitstream audio Enable PCM down sampling if supported by your source device Technical Specifications Video Amplifier Bandwidth Supported Video Resolutions Max Recommended Distance Input Video Signal Input DDC Signal Connectors Cabling Power Power Connector Dimensions Temperature Shipping Weight Warranty Regulatory Compatible Intelix Matrices Intelix Part Number Ordering Information 1.65 Gbps 480i, 480p, 576i, 576p, 720p, 1080i 150 feet 1.2 volts p-p 5.0 volts p-p (TTL) Two (2) RJ45s to one (1) type A HDMI connector Two individual runs of Cat 5e or Cat 6 External 5 VDC Side mounted connector 3.25” x 1.75” x 0.88” Operating: 0° to 55°C Storage: -20° to 85°C Humidity: up to 95% 1 lb. 2 years CE, RoHS DIGI-HDMI-4X4 DIGI-HDMI-4X2 DIGI-HDMI-HR-R DIGI-HDMI-HR-R package includes one receive unit, one power supply, and one mounting bracket The Intelix DIGI-HDMI-HR-R conforms to HDMI and HDCP specifications. Intelix does not guarantee operation with devices that do not conform to these specifications. The Intelix DIGI-HDMIHR-R passes HDCP signals and does not manipulate them in any way. Distances and picture quality may be affected by cable grade, cable quality, source and destination equipment, RF and electrical interference, and cable patches. Intelix specifications are based on straightthrough cabling with standard-grade Cat 5e.
