Now, you can also use your home network for HD streaming

Technically, HDMI is able to cross a distance of 10 metres through an HDMI cable, with no visible loss of quality. Wirelessly, this is already possible up to 30 metres, but only without any obstacles. What if you want to extend the signal by more than 30 metres, or need to pass through an obstacle, such as a wall? If you already happen to have a home network, you can choose the MegaView 81. Obstacles are not a problem; it extends the signal to 100 metres and costs about half the price of a wireless solution.

MegaView 81


Today, Marmitek introduces the MegaView 81, for transmitting HDMI over CAT5/6.

It allows you to extend the transfer of HD content (Full HD 1080p) up to 100 metres from your Digital TV, Media Center PC, game console or hard disk recorder, and view it elsewhere on a TV or projector screen.

How does it work?

You use an HDMI cable to connect your HDMI device to the MegaView 81's transmitter. This transfers the HD signal to a CAT5/6 cable or home network (LAN), allowing you to use a MegaView 81 receiver to pick up the signal elsewhere. Use an HDMI cable to connect your TV or beamer to it. Using the infrared return feature, you can control the connected device from the TV.

Usage

A lot of new houses are increasingly being equipped with a CAT5 network. Now, this can be easily used for transmitting HDMI, for example, to the bedroom TV, the loft or the conservatory. Or you can always lay a cable yourself, of course.

Advantages

*Easily connects to your home network (LAN) using TCP/IP protocol.
*A CAT5 cable costs only a fraction of an HDMI cable.
*A CAT5 cable has little or no loss of quality, not even over longer distances.
*HDMI cables can be tricky to guide through conduits (e.g. because they are inflexible and the connectors are non-removable). With CAT5 cable, this is much easier.
*The use of an HDMI switcher allows you to transfer signals from multiple HD devices to the MegaView 81 transmitter.
*The CAT5 network may already be in use for other purposes.
