About the Metra HDMI Splitter and Extender Kit
Distribute content to eight displays
Distribute content to eight displays
This Metra kit lets you send 1080p content from an HDMI source to eight TVs, projectors, or monitors. The transmitter takes the video signal from an incoming HDMI cable and converts it to CAT-6 Ethernet cable, which you'll run to each display location. Each included receiver accepts a CAT-6 connection and converts the signal back to HDMI, for easy connection to each of your displays.
This kit is particularly useful if you want to show content across multiple screens in a sports bar, classroom, or other commercial establishment. The included IR (infrared) extender cables even let you pass remote control commands through the system.
