The ELE8082 HDMI Extender from Element Hz boosts up your audio/video transmission distance up to 25m (80ft) in HDTV 1080i format and 15m (50ft) in HDTV 1080p format. With only one cost effective Cat-5/5e/6 solid 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 standard to distant display monitors including HDMI or DVI supported TV sets or LCD PC monitors. With the state-of-the-art Silicon
The ELE8082 includes two units: transmitting and receiving units. The transmitting unit is used to transfer the HDMI signals input and carry the signals through one low cost Cat-5/5e/6 solid cable. The transmission distance between the transmitting and receiving units can be up to 25m (80ft) under HD (720p/1080i) or 15m (50ft) under Full HD (1080p). With direct plug-in to the HDTV, users do not need to have to find a power outlet for the traditional HDMI over CAT5 receiver and can save

How to Install ELE8082 HDMI Extender
1. Connect a HDMI source such as a Blu-ray Disc player to the transmitting unit.
2. Connect a HDMI display such as a LCD HDTV to the receiving unit.
3. Connect one Cat-5/5e/6 cable between the HDMI SIGNAL OUT port on the transmitting unit and the RJ-45 port on the receiving unit.
4. Make sure this Cat-5/5e/6 cable is tightly connected and not loose.
5. Plug in a +5V DC power supply unit to the power jack of the transmitting unit.
1. All HDMI over CAT5 transmission distances are measured using Belden CAT5e 125MHz UTP cable and ASTRODESIGN Video Signal Generator VG-859C.
2. The transmission length is largely affected by the type of category cables, the type of HDMI sources, and the type of HDMI displays. The testing result shows solid UTP cables (usually in the form of 300m or 1,000ft bulk cables) can transmit a lot longer signals than stranded UTP cables (usually in the form of fixed length patch cords). A solid UTP Cat-5e cable shows longer transmission range than a stranded STP Cat-6 cable. For long extension applications, solid UTP/STP cables are the only viable choice.
3. EIA/TIA-568-B termination (T568B) for category cables is recommended.
4. To reduce the interference among the unshielded twisted pairs of wires in a category cable, double shielded STP cables are better suited than unshielded UTP cables to improve EMI problems, which is worse in long transmission.
5. Because the quality of the category 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.
6. If the 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.
