As part of the revolutionary Leaf True HDMI Distribution range, the Leaf LTCAT6 distributes HDMI 1.4-compliant video via Cat6 cable at distances up to 100m, to as many as six HDMIB8 HDMI Distribution Receivers, each capable of delivery Deep Color, 3D, 1080p video to eight displays at once.

With the same 1080p60. 3D, and Deep Color capabilities as the rest of the True HDMI Distribution range, the LT38 solves all of the HDMI distribution issues that integrators have struggled with in the past. Like the LTCAT6, the LT38 can be coupled with the SG1 or TC2 controllers, allowing you to choose between three different sources, directed at multiple panels.
