Gefen HDMI CAT5 splitter

Gefen has introduced a new rack mount product for systems integration, a 1:5 Splitter for HDMI over CAT-5. One HDMI source signal can be simultaneously sent to five different displays. Four displays can be placed up to 45 meters away on CAT-5 and still receive full 1080p resolution. The distance can be doubled if the resolution is reduced to 1080i. Video and audio signals are sent using two cables.

Five displays can be connected locally, or individual displays can be extended to suit the needs of the setup. Gaming consoles, Blu-ray players, cable boxes, or any other HDMI devices are all compatible with the splitter. Gefen's 1:5 Splitter for HDMI over CAT-5 costs $2250 and is available from the company.
