HDMI Over Ethernet Extender Kit: The Simplified MFG REX2 is a HDMI Over Ethernet Extender Kit, consisting of one Transmitter unit and one Receiver unit. The Transmitter unit is responsible for transmitting the HDMI input signal from your connected source component via one Cat5E/6 cable, while the Receiver is responsible for receiving the HDMI audio/video signal and passing it along to your connected display monitor or TV. The REX2 can extend a 4K @30Hz signal up to 131' (40m) and a 1080p signal up to 232' (70m).

Note: A CAT 5e or 6 Ethernet cable will be required for connection and is sold separately.

HDMI 2.0: The REX2 HDMI Over Ethernet Extender Kit is equipped with one HDMI input and one HDMI output on the Transmitter unit, plus an additional HDMI output on the Receiver. The HDMI input and outputs meet HDMI 2.0 specifications with support for 10.2Gbps video bandwidth, 4K video, HDCP 1.4, and multichannel audio.

  • Video Resolutions: Supported video resolution include 4K @50/60Hz, 4K @30Hz, 1080p @120Hz, and 1080p 3D @60Hz. It also supports HDR10, HDR10+, and DolbyVision.
