Gefen HDMI CAT5 Extreme Extender Sends High Definition Audio/Video over Industry Standard CAT5 Cable

Selected as one of Electronic House's "Products of the Year," Gefen's HDMI CAT5 Extreme offers a convenient method of delivering HDTV throughout the home.

Denver, CO - Making use of category -5e cabling, the sender and receiver system is capable of sending HDMI video sources up to 200 feet to the extended HDMI display or projector.


HDCP -compliant, HDMI resolutions up to 1080i are supported together with multichannel digital audio signals.

Because CAT -5 cables are installed as a standard in most homes throughout the country, Gefen's HDMI CAT5 Extreme is able to work with current in -wall cabling, avoiding the need to place new wiring in conduit when installing new digital audio/video systems.

The use of CAT -5 cables also offers a more economical resource to deliver HDTV up to 200 feet without sacrificing quality.

Measuring just 3.4 -inches by 3.25 -inches, the HDMI CAT5 Extreme system takes up little space, sitting behind the scenes next to the source and the extended display, connected by two CAT5 cables.

The HDMI CAT5 Extreme (MSRP $499) can be integrated with DVI sources and displays when combined with a Gefen HDMI to DVI Adapter. Gefen also supplies a DVI CAT5 Extreme model for DVI sources, computers and displays.
