Put Technology to Work

Use our extenders today to display your HD digital content over 300 feet from a single source to one or many via Ethernet switches (managed or unmanaged). You can also Daisy-chain Ethernet switches to maximize distance (up to 1300 feet) with excellent quality picture and sound.

So, don’t put it off.  Up your game by taking advantage of this technology for your next presentation!

The HDMI over LAN Ethernet Extender, MilesTek part # 90-12028 works over Internet Protocol (IP).  This signal extender increases the range of your HD content up to 330 feet from one source to one or even unlimited HD displays.  You can also daisy-chain 3 levels of Ethernet switches to extend the signal, without losing any quality, a distance of 1,300 feet.  The best part about this switch is that since it functions over IP, all receivers find the transmitter automatically, making setup quick and painless.

Specifications:

  • Supports HDMI v1.3 1080p stereo audio
  • Plug & Play installation
  • 225 MHz bandwidth
  • IR control capable

Uses for HDMI Over LAN Extender

Because of its simple setup and ability to display at infinite remote locations, the HDMI Over LAN Extender is ideal for serving signals to digital signs, computer presentations, and internal corporate communications.  In addition, it also works well over existing home networks, and also with low-cost LAN switches and routers.  And, it all comes at an affordable price.

If you purchase the HDMI Over LAN Extender, you will need to also purchase additional receivers for each display you want to distribute the signal to.  The HDMI Over LAN/Ethernet IR Receiver allows you to receive multiple signals at an unlimited number of different displays.

Other Important Points to Keep in Mind

Keep in mind also that this part must be installed on either a dedicated network or partitioned network.  Because of its high bandwidth demands, it needs a certain level of dedicated bandwidth to deliver a high-quality signal.

As is the case with most HDMI over CAT5E/CAT6 technology, you must use standard CAT5e/CAT6 copper cabling with RJ45 connectors.  Stranded gauge pre-made patch cords won’t work with this product.

Today’s product showcase is for the MilesTek HDMI Audio Extractor Converter.

HDBaseT scores another big win for home entertainment technology with the HDMI Audio Extractor Converter. This unique converter streamlines output for both display and sound, so it simplifies cabling issues for fans of high-tech home entertainment.

This all depends on whether you want to output to a fiber optic audio, digital audio or analog device.)
  3. Connect all of the cabling.
  4. Program the device for the necessary channels.

That’s it. Once the device is set up and ready for use, it will extract and convert both video and audio signals for the devices specified.

So, if you’re looking for a nifty piece of AV distribution equipment that will simplify home entertainment without forcing you to sacrifice HD display and sound, check out the MilesTek HDMI Audio Extractor Converter. All it takes is a little technical know-how and small amount of space.

HDBaseT technology extends much farther than ever before with this HDMI over fiber optic 3D extender.  In fact, a HDMI signal can be transmitted up to 1,600 meters at 1080i resolution or 800 meters at full 1080p resolution with the help of inexpensive and readily available fiber optic cabling.  Additional benefits of using this product include:

  • Completely free of electromagnetic interference more commonly experienced with standard CAT5E/CAT6 copper cabling
  • No signal compression or degradation
  • Pure HDMI transmission
  • Acts as a signal extender and splitter – offers one loop-up HDMI port for a local monitor and 2 HDMI outputs on receiver

Common Applications of Fiber Optic Signal Use:

Electromagnetic interference causes signal loss and cross talk with other copper cabling.  This problem is often experienced in buildings such as hospitals, government offices, broadcast stations, factories, and high-security areas.  Although distributing audio/video digital data over CAT5E/CAT6 cabling is popular, the signal loss and crosstalk experienced in these types of buildings sometimes causes more trouble than such institutions are willing to tolerate.

Because fiber optic cabling transmits light signals over small strands of glass, these issues are completely non-existent with the fiber optic 3D extender.  Additionally, from a security perspective, fiber can’t be interrupted or spliced like CAT copper cabling, making it a safer alternative in that regard as well.  Therefore, environments requiring regular distribution of audio/video signals will benefit the most from the usage of fiber optic cabling and this signal extender.

Product Specs:

In addition to all of those benefits, following are the features of this product:

  • Compatible with 7.1 channel audio
  • Includes IR cables
  • Allows or IR pass-thru extending

One of the many hot new HDMI signal-extension products we offer here at MilesTek is part #90-12055, the HDMI over single CAT5E/Cat6 HDBaseT Lite Extender.

What is HDBaseT?

HDBaseT Single Cable HDMI Signal Extender

HDMI over single CAT5E/Cat6 HDBaseT Lite Extender part #90-12055

If you’re like most people, you probably haven’t heard of HDBaseT.  A relatively new business alliance formed on June 14, 2010 by LG Electronics, Samsung Electronics, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and Valens Semiconductor to promote the new technology.  The basic idea behind the technology is that a single LAN cable can be used to replace multiple cables in homes and businesses.  Find out more about HDBaseT here: http://www.hdbaset.org/.

Basically, the technology allows uncompressed HD video, audio, 100BaseT Ethernet, power, and various control signals all to be passed over a single cable.  If you’re even somewhat familiar with these terms, you realize that most of the cables you have at your home or office use one or more of these technologies.

From a practical standpoint of fewer cables making life easier and a business standpoint of lesser cables costing your company less, this emerging technology makes great sense at a number of levels.

When you first read this article title, you might be tempted to think, “It doesn’t take a technical mastermind to do this.”  And in most cases, you’re right.  But many times, technology comes up with its own quirks that make the simplest of processes completely infuriating.  In the ideal world, you simply purchase an HDMI cable, connect it to the PC and TV, and then you’re good to go.  But, in case you run into those irritating and unexpected quirks, here is a more detailed process to follow:

  • Make sure your PC has an HDMI port. Check to make sure your TV has at least one too.  Just about all televisions, since they are HD, and PCs manufactured within the last several years have HDMI ports, so this step shouldn’t be a large obstacle for you.
  • HDMI cablesBuy an HDMI cable. MilesTek offers HDMI cables in various lengths that are backwards compatible to older HDMI versions, and support up to 4K x 2K and 1080p Video Resolutions.
  • Plug the cable in to the TV and laptop. Once you have the HDMI cable properly plugged into the PC or laptop, switch to the correct input channel.  In some cases, your laptop will automatically set the process up and you’ll see a picture right away.  In most cases, however, the screen will be blank.  Don’t worry about that yet.
  • Configure your PC. Most of the time, Windows ignores the HDMI port when you plug something in.  Given that we’re in the age of plug’n’play, this seems a little weird, but it’s the way things work.  To resolve this issue, go to the control panel and choose “adjust screen resolution.”

You will note two different displays, one which appears to be disabled.  Click on the disabled monitor, and appropriately allow the PC to send and receive a signal on the HDMI cable.  You should now see the same thing on your computer display and HDTV.pc to hdmi tv

Whew – well maybe that wasn’t so bad after all.  But, at least now you know the process a little better so you can handle any unexpected quirks.  Now it’s time for the really hard part – deciding what to watch!

Audio Video DevicesWe’ve explored a seemingly endless array of A/V connectivity and distribution solutions lately that are suitable for a seemingly endless range of needs and technical levels — from one-room home entertainment systems to vast multi-display classroom, training center, and convention hall environments.

In other words, much of what we provide are advanced A/V solutions to both casual and sophisticated A/V users, for projects both big and small. The goal is always pull, plug and play capability.

What we’ve talked about so far is just a tip of the iceberg for what the future will hold when it comes to connectivity solutions here at MilesTek. But now is a good time to stop for a second and review how exactly our products provide our customers an unparalleled A/V advantage.

Here are three keys:

1. Smart bargains

Many of products smartly take advantage of high-quality, low-cost CAT5E Ethernet cables and CAT6 Ethernet cables. Without them, running top-quality audio and video from sources to displays over long distances would be either prohibitively expensive or simply impossible without losing signal purity.

The use of Ethernet cables lowers costs and lengthens your signal transmission capabilities. It’s a win-win.

2. Comprehensive Cable Coverage

We have solutions for just about every common (and some that are not-so common) cable technology available.

For example, while HDMI cables have only been on the market since 2003, we offer a full range of innovative HDMI extenders, HDMI switches, HDMI splitters and HDMI converters (as well as simple, reliable, high-speed HDMI cables as well). But we can also provide a full range products for older cable technologies like VGA, Composite/Component Video, and DVI distribution as well. And when the next wave of new cable technology hits the market, we’ll figure how to make it better, simpler, cheaper, and more usable for our customers as well.

3. Flexibility

Sure, we have products than can enhance just about any A/V cable technology your source or display needs. But what if you need a mix (as most multi-source systems do)? We’ve got solutions for mixed systems as well.

For example, check out our HDMI to component/composite video switchers, as well as our VGA-to-HDMI converters. Whatever you need to make your system go.

That’s the bottom line. Our A/V solutions make your A/V needs and problems simply solvable. Go ahead and browse through our complete catalog of audio video devices for more information.
