Typical Configuration:
With 350MHz bandwidth these units allow video to be simultaneously displayed across multiple
displays quickly and effectively. The bases of the units are magnetic to allow for easy attachment
to most metal surfaces.

Although only analogue, VGA is still a
dominant force in the AV sector and will be
for some time. Centred around the 15 way
High Density ‘D’ type connector, we have
equipment to distribute and interconnect
VGA signals (including audio!) in a variety
of configurations.

VGA over Cat5e/6 Range
Extenders (up to 300m)
Transmitters:
• AVE-301T - 1 port transmitter
• AVE-308T - 8 port transmitter
• AVE-304T - 4 port transmitter
• AVE-316T - 16 port transmitter
Utilising cost effective and readily available
Cat5e/6 cable, these units allow extended
distances to be quickly and easily covered
between AV source and display devices.
In the basic form, the configuration is a Transmit
unit and a Receive unit; however, source signals
can also be split to provide simultaneous
multiple displays if required.
Whilst VGA is video only, these devices cleverly
allow for the transmission of the audio signal
as well!

was a major step forward in AV signal
transmission as it not only offers superior
digital video, but also incorporates the
audio signal as well.
Utilising cost effective and readily available Cat5e/6 cable, these units allow extended distances
to be quickly covered between AV source and display devices. The configuration is normally in the
form of a transmit unit and receive unit. Ideal for digital signage applications.
• Incredibly compact sized units

ET-HC0101-T transmitter (left). However, it is also compatible with
other Databay HDMI transmitters shown opposite. The receiver
has built-in EQ to allow fine tuning of the video image.
Normally used in conjunction with a ET-HC0101-R Cat-x to HDMI

Installation Advice & Information
Environmental issues:
FAQ
The DataBay range of AV signal distribution
equipment is capable of high quality results.
This guide is intended to help achieve optimum
performance from the equipment by following
simple guidelines and good installation
practice.
The area surrounding an installation can also
have an impact on its performance. In particular
electrical noise from mains cables, fluorescent
lighting or electric motors / installations, etc, could
result in interference being induced into the AV
cabling system and affecting its performance.
Q.
A.
What is Low Skew Cat-X cable?
Skew is a measurement (normally in
nanoseconds) which measures signal
delays between different twisted pairs in a
cable. Low Skew in video terms is cable
with Skew rates lower than 15nS per 100m.
Cable:
The same applies to airborne radio frequency
interference.
Q.
A.
-
-
-
Can I extend the distances further than
specified?
This could be possible by:
Reducing the display resolutions
Using better quality Cat-X cable
(low skew, shielded)
Using better quality video cables
(e.g. Cat2 HDMI cable)
Q.
A.
I’m only using a 5 metre Cat-X link cable
between the transmitter and receiver, but I
cannot get a picture...
This can occur when using short cables of
maybe 5 or 10 metres with receivers that are
optimised to function over much longer
distances e.g. 300m. In this case either
use a slightly longer Cat-X cable or use a
different receiver.
Q.
A.
I’m using a short range HDMI non-powered
receiver (p/n HDMI-HR), but cannot see an
image; why?
Some flat panel monitors use a slightly
non-standard input which requires power
at the HDMI input socket to function
correctly. Some Samsung and Goodmans
monitors are known to suffer from this
issue (there may be others). However, the
problem can be easily overcome by
using our p/n ET-HC0101-Z (see page 17),
in place of the non-powered HDMI-HR.
The DataBay product range distributes the AV
signals via various cable types. As with any
installation, the type and quality of cable can have
a dramatic effect on the resultant performance.
For example, a CCTV system may be installed
with all manner of RG59 cable, but the resultant
differences in image quality from best to worst can
be huge.
Where a DataBay system is extended via
Cat5e / Cat6 cable, we strongly recommend the
use of a Low Skew cable. Skew is a measurement
(normally in nanoseconds) that measures the
time delay between the first and last signal arrival
in different twisted pairs. If the time difference is
too large, image quality can be affected, possibly
manifesting itself in bright vertical lines, ghosting,
colour smudging or worst case, no image at all.
Low Skew in video terms is cable with Skew rates
lower than 15nS per 100m.
The following Cat-X cables should all perform
well:
Belden 7987R
Belden 1700A
Canford 31-953
Mohawk M58813
Common sense and good installation practice
should minimise these effects through careful
cable routing, avoiding mains cables or other
areas of potential interference. In areas of high
susceptibility, it would be sensible to use low skew
screened cables.
Display resolutions & refresh rates:
Higher display resolutions and video refresh rates
all require higher bandwidths and data rates.
The result of the greater demands on the cable is,
consequently, reduced achievable distances.
For example:
A display running a resolution of 480p may happily
work across a 100m link; the same infrastructure
running a display @ 1080p may only achieve
30m.

Q.
A.
If I ‘mix’ transmitters and receivers of different
distance capabilities (e.g. AVE-301T 300m
and the receiver from the AVE-M180TR
180m), what is the maximum distance
achievable?
In all such cases you are limited to the
distance of the shortest device (in this
case 180m).
Q.
A.
How many levels of cascading can be
achieved on HDMI?
Normally two is recommended, although at
lower resolutions and with good quality
cables further cascading may be perfectly
possible.
Q.
A.
Can I use stranded Cat-X patch cord?
Stranded Cat-X cable is not recommended
– use solid installation Cat-X cable for
best results.
Q. How should I wire the Cat-X cable?
A. The cable should be terminated to EIA 568B
specifications.

Hints & Tips
When commissioning a DataBay system the following tips could help speed up the process and
ensure a trouble-free installation:
Pre-Installation:
During Installation:
Undertake a full site survey. In addition to standard
practice, take particular note of accurate cable
lengths required, makes/models of the monitors
to be connected and take into account any
potential environmental factors that could cause
interference. It is also preferential to have all
devices powered from the same electrical phase
and with common grounding.
Follow the user manuals to assist the installation
process.
Wherever possible, bench test your proposed
system set-up at your facility before proceeding
to site. Use interconnecting cables as they will
be used on site, i.e. the same cable types and
lengths.
Firstly, if the first transmitter in the link has a local
monitor output, then connect up a monitor to this
port to confirm that the transmitter is receiving
a valid signal. Use the EQ control (if available)
on the transmitter to obtain the optimum picture
quality. You can then proceed to setting up the
receiver end.
Set-up the system by starting with the lowest
video resolution outputs from the video source
and establishing a working link. You can then
increase the display resolutions in stages to
ensure full system compatibility. Ensure the
monitor is capable of displaying at the desired
resolutions and refresh rates.
Most devices should function correctly with
the EQ set to AUTO. However, if this does not
give satisfactory results, then the EQ can be
set manually. Please note that in manual mode
the changes may not be instantaneous and
may lag by a second or two. Therefore, adjust
the EQ in small stages at a time and check the
result on screen.
If a monitor does not appear to be displaying
video, check the obvious things like power(!)
correct source mode selected (e.g. HDMI,
VGA, S-Video) and for correctly engaged
connectors. If this fails, completely power down
the monitor (not just standby) and then re-apply
the power.

The following cables (available on page 8) enable the
AVE-300 series VGA transmitters and receivers to be
converted to transmit Component Video or Composite Video.
Below is more detailed information regarding the use and
connection of these cables.
