The B160-201-HSI 2-Port HDMI over IP Transmitter/Receiver/Extender Kit extends and distributes HDMI audio/video, RS-232 serial and IR (infrared) remote signals from the source to the display located up to 100 meters away, which is more than 60.96 m far ther than a traditional Cat5e/6 solution. By adding a chain of low-cost unmanaged network switches, such as Tripp Lite’s NG5, you can continue extending the distance between source and display up to 100 m per switch. Two HDMI outputs on the receiver al low the connection of two displays.
Create a multi-in, multi-out installation with up to 64 transmitters and 255 receivers by including dedicated managed Ethernet network switches with Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP), such as Tripp Lite’s NSS -G16D2. With a compatible B160-Series receiver, you can send the HDMI video source to any analog or digital display, including VGA and DisplayPort, allowing you to mix and match technologies and use existing monitors. The IGMP-enabled switch will let y ou manage all connections for centralized control over which sources show on which displays.
The B160-201-HSI supports video resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 (1080p) at 60 Hz in a point-to-multipoint switch installation. It extends IR control signals that control a source, such as a Blu-ray player, from a remote display, as well as RS-232 signals at serial baud rates up to 57600 Bps. The transmitter and receiver units mount to a wall, rack or pole using the including hardware.
Unmanaged switch install ations are limited to two transmitter units. Number of receivers is limited to number of ports remaining on unmanaged switch.
