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
  • Includes transmitter, receiver, 2 IR adapter cables
  • Includes AC adapters for both transmitter and receiver
  • 1 complimentary HDMI cable included

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.

Instead of just providing HDMI video output (as many other HDMI converters do), this great little gadget extracts and converts the audio signals too, and it can push them to multiple devices. That means that users get the high-quality digital sound they want without hassle of finding space for more cables and hardware.

The HDMI Audio Extractor Converter is a small, single-box module that measures 2.75”W x .75”H x 2.378”L, and uses a 5V DC power supply.

The HDMI Audio Extractor Converter is perfect for:

  • Fans of advanced home entertainment who don’t want to have to deal with yet another cable for their high-tech toys
  • Anyone with a minimalist style and mindset who wants to simplify how their living space looks without sacrificing their entertainment experience

Not sure if the HDMI Audio Extractor Converter will fit your needs? Here are some specs to help you out. The MilesTek HDMI Audio Extractor Converter supports:

  • 2.0CH/5.1CH audio switch

  • Compressed audio DTS digital and Dolby Digital

An added bonus is that the HDMI Audio Extractor Converter is a snap to hook up and use. To set up, users just need to:

  1. Verify that the power is off.
  2. Gather the necessary cables. (Here you will need to verify that you have the right cables. For instance, everyone will need a high-speed HDMI cable, but their output audio cables could be fiber optic audio cables, digital audio coaxial RCA cables, or 3.5mm stereo cables. 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

Today’s product showcase is for MilesTek’s USB 2.0 over Cat5e/Cat6 Advanced Extenders.

It comes in two parts, a local module and a remote module. The system allows you to connect a USB device to the remote end, and transmit the signal over up to 100 meters of Cat5e or Cat6 cable.

Why do you need a USB 2.0 Advanced Extender?

With standard USB 2.0 cables, the upper limit on cable length is about 15 feet. With older USB 1.1 cables, you’re restricted to only 10 feet. That’s enough for most home applications, but there are plenty of situations where that won’t be nearly enough.

If you need to control a presentation with a USB device, set up a webcam far away from the reach of standard USB cables, or install a touchscreen monitor for remote user interaction, you’ve got to have a USB over Cat5e/Cat6 extender. It’s also great for remote printing, scanning, external storage, sound equipment, and streaming video.

USB 2.0 Advanced Extender Hardware Details

The MilesTek USB 2.0 over Cat5e/Cat6 advanced extender is made up of two modules. At one end, you’ll connect your PC via USB, and at the other end, you’ll connect the USB device. We also offer a USB 2.0 over Cat5e/Cat6 advanced extender with 4 ports for additional connectivity options.

The user side is powered by an AC adapter, included with the USB extender. This is needed because USB peripherals can draw up to 500 milliamps, which won’t travel over an Ethernet cable. The module that attaches to your PC doesn’t need a power adapter, although you can attach one if your PC setup is already drawing too much power.  However, this isn’t likely to be necessary.

Both modules come in durable metal cases to resist wear and tear.

The system doesn’t require you to install any drivers- the hardest part of setting it up is walking all the way from one end to the other. It works with Windows, Mac OS, and Linux.

Features:

  • Extends USB 2.0 and 1.1 devices up to 100 meters
  • Supports all USB device types
  • No driver installation required – install and use this device immediately, true plug and play.
  • Can increase the number of devices with additional USB hubs
  • Works well with USB printers, hard drives, audio devices, web cams, game controllers, and more

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.

MilesTek’s new HDMI Audio Extractor Converter is quite a unique piece of AV distribution equipment. This extractor converter has a HDMI video output and also allows you to connect the audio to external speakers or surround sound systems.  Similar products only output video, so this one is quite a treat.  Hey, let’s just face it – having one less device saves that much more space and confusion, so why not consider getting a device that lets you output both 1080p resolution HDMI video to display as well as audio signals to your speakers?

All right, let’s stop talking about how this product can help you and start discussing how to hook it up.

HDMI Audio Extractor Converter

  • Keep the power off – When it comes to cabling, always make sure you have the power off to start.  In most cases, if you connect and disconnect cables while the power is on for any device, you probably won’t cause any damage.  But, if you keep the power off, you are 100% sure you won’t damage any of the cables while connecting or disconnecting.  Leave it off so you don’t find yourself having to purchase replacement cables and devices.
  • Make sure you have the right HDMI cables – If you’re the minimalist type and have that ancient cable from several years ago, make sure you have a high-speed HDMI cable.  Also, keep in mind you’ll need 2 cables – one for input, and one for output.
  • Check that you have the right audio cables – you can output SPDIF (Sony/Phillips Digital Interconnect Format) using toslink fiber optic audio cables or digital audio coaxial RCA cables, or output analog using  3.5 mm stereo cables.
  • Connect all cabling – Depending on your setup, connect the HDMI cables and the audio cables.
  • Connect the power cable – Now that all the other cabling is connected, connect the power.  If you noticed you made a mistake with your other cabling, make sure to disconnect the power cable first.
  • Find the right input channels – Okay – you’ve done all the hard labor.  Now it’s time to find the right input channels on the various devices you’ve connected.  We’d love to help you more here, but all of that information is device-specific, so this part is up to you!

Enjoy Your New HDMI Audio Extractor Converter Setup

Don’t forget this part.  Sometimes, working with electronics is nothing short of extreme frustration.  Once you’re all set up though, enjoy your new 1080p resolution HDMI video on your own display and stereo output on your own speakers.
