Ethereal\'s HDMI -CAT5 System Gives Pro Installers New Options

Innovative system allows HDMI signals to run through CAT5 cables

Ethereal Home Theater's HDMI -CAT5 System allows HDMI signals to run long distances by converting the HDMI cable to CAT5/6, then back into an HDMI cable at the display.


Because many homes are already wired with CAT5/SE or CAT6 cabling, Ethereal developed the system to send HDMI signals correctly down two unshielded CAT5/SE or CAT6 cables. The HDMI -CAT5 System consists of Tx (send) and Rx (receive) units, and two networking (RJ45) type connectors at each end for an easy -to -install and service interface. This innovative system accommodates CAT5 cable lengths up to 75 feet, CATSE up to 100 feet, and CAT6 up to 200 feet.

The HDMI -CAT5 features Ethereal's low -speed line driver and high -speed data digital restoration circuit. The HDMI diagnostic is built in the top of each unit for installer supervision. Twisted pair balanced mode transmission design greatly suppresses radiated noise from high voltage (110V).

The HDMI -CAT5 is among the products in Ethereal's exciting new DTW Series of advanced HDMI technology accessories. Designed by and for custom installers, the HDMI -CAT5 is manufactured in the United States.
