Extend HDMI up to 4K Ultra HD and 2-way IR over one CAT-5e or CAT-6 cable

The GefenToolBox Extender for HDMI with POL uses Gefen's implementation of the HDBaseT® technology to extend HDMI up to 230 feet (70 meters) using one CAT-6 cable or up to 198 feet (60 meters) using one CAT-5e. Resolutions up to 4K Ultra HD with 7.1 channels of HBR (High Bit Rate) lossless digital audio are supported. This product also provides 2-way IR extension between the Sender and the Receiver unit, allowing the transfer of IR commands from one remote location to the other. Bi-Directional IR can be used to control A/V sources placed near the Sender unit and to send IR automation commands to devices placed near the Receiver unit. Gefen POL (Power Over Line) technology powers the Receiver unit using the same cable that extends the HDMI signal from the Sender unit. This feature eliminates the need for an external power supply at the Receiver unit and simplifies installation.





How It Works


Connect the Sender unit to a Hi-Def source using an HDMI cable. Use another HDMI cable to connect the Receiver unit to an HDTV display. Connect a single CAT-5e or CAT-6 cable between the Sender and Receiver units. Connect the included 24V DC power supply to the Sender unit and plug it into an available electrical outlet. Power to the Receiver unit is delivered from the Sender unit over the CAT-5e/6 cable using Gefen POL technology. To control the Hi-Def source from the display location, connect the included IR Extender (Gefen part no. EXT-RMT-EXTIRC or EXT-RMT-EXTIRN) to the IR Ext connector on the Receiver unit. Connect the included IR emitter (Gefen part no. GTB-IREMIT) to the IR Out port of the Sender unit and place the IR emitter over the IR sensor of the Hi-Def source. Point the IR remote at the IR Extender to control the Hi-Def source. For IR control of a device placed near the Receiver unit (such as the display), connect the IR output from an automation control device to the IR In connector on the Sender unit. Connect an IR emitter (Gefen part no. GTB-IREMIT) to the IR Out port on the Receiver unit and attach the IR emitter to the IR sensor of the device being controlled.

Note:  Shielded (STP) CAT-5e or CAT-6 is recommended. Unshielded (UTP) CAT-5e or CAT-6 may be acceptable depending on cable quality but is not the best choice. Care should always be given to keep these cables away from power lines and other sources of electromagnetic interference.
