About the Ethereal CS-HDC6EXT4K HDMI Extender

Steve Kindig

A great alternative to a long HDMI cable

Ethereal makes it easy to send video and audio across a long distance with this HDMI-to-CAT-6 balun bundle. It includes a transmitter and a receiver, which together can transfer a 4K/30Hz video signal up to 40 meters (about 131 feet) away over a single CAT-6 Ethernet cable. For 1080p signals, the range extends to 230 feet. These units are ideal for connecting an A/V receiver to an overhead projector or wall-mounted TV, without the need for an expensive, ultra-long HDMI cable.

How the system works

The transmitter balun connects to your home theater receiver, Blu-ray player, or other video source via a short HDMI cable. It then sends the incoming signal through a CAT-6 cable to the receiver balun, which is located near your TV or projector. A short HDMI cable is used to connect the receiver balun to your display.

What is a balun?

A balun gets its name by converting signals between balanced and unbalanced lines. Balanced cables carry signals over much longer distances than unbalanced lines, and also provide superior noise rejection.

These baluns convert HDMI to balanced CAT-6 connections. The result is clear, crisp signal transmission that offers flexible placement options for your equipment.

Features

HDMI Extender Over Cat6: This HDMI Extender Over Cat6 (CS-HDC6EXT4K) includes a transmitter unit (TX) and a receiver unit (RX) working as a pair, along with an IR emitter and IR receiver. It allows for transmission and extension of an uncompressed 4K/30Hz HDMI video signal via CAT6 network cable up to 131' (40 meters) or a 1080p/60Hz HDMI video signal up to 230' (70 meters) with zero latency.

Note: You can also use a CAT5E cable, but it will limit 4K/30Hz HDMI video transmission to 115' (35 meters) and 1080p HDMI video transmission to 197' (60 meters).

HDMI 1.4: The HDMI Extender over Cat6 (CS-HDC6EXT4K) is equipped with HDMI 1.4 jacks that are HDCP 1.4 compatible. There is a HDMI 1.4 input and output on the transmitter, as well as a HDMI 1.4 output on the receiver that support up to 10.2Gbps transmission.

  • Supported Video Resolutions: These HDMI 1.4 jacks support 4K@30Hz, 1080p/i@50/60Hz, 720p@50/60Hz, and 480i/p@60Hz.
  • Supported Audio Formats: In addition to video, the CS-HDC6EXT4K also supports multichannel audio including Dolby Digital, Dolby TrueHD, DTS, and DTS-HD, as well as 2ch to 7.1ch PCM.

Note: Because the CS-HDC6EXT4K is only HDCP 1.4 compatible (and not HDCP 2.2 compatible), it does not support copyrighted 4K video content.

EDID (Extended Display Identification): The EDID 2-way dip switch is used for selecting Extended Display Identification. Switch to the right position and the extender will copy the transmitter's HDMI loop out display EDID information to signal source. Switch to the left position and the extender will copy the receiver's display EDID to signal source.

PoE (Power-Over-Ethernet): The CS-HDC6EXT4K supports PoE (Power Over Ethernet) to power the receiver, so you only need to connect the included power supply to the transmitter. Each unit will power up, as the receiver unit is powered by the transmitter unit through the connected Ethernet cable.

IR Emitter & Receiver: This HDMI extender supports one-way IR signal transmission for remote control of your source devices. It comes with an IR emitter and IR receiver. It supports 20-60kHz wide frequency IR remote controls.
