Atlona Releases Single CAT -5 Extender for HDMI. See it at InfoComm

New Single CAT5 Extender for HDMI economically transfers 1080p Signal up t0 125ft, and 1080i up to 250ft.

Until now, extending HDMI over CAT -5 cable has involved running two Cat 5 cables, one for the video signal, and another for the DDC information. There were a handful of single interconnect solutions using a single fiber optic and some using CAT -6 or CAT -7 cables, but most were limited to a maximum range or 60' at 1080p.


Atlona's new Single CAT -5 HDMI extender (model: AT -HDMI40SR) will extend HD signal from HDMI sources up to 200' at 1080i or 130' at 1080p. The device has a built in video equalizer, which is adjustable though a dial on the receiver. The unit is an affordable solution with a low MSRP of $329, and is now shipping.
