HDMI CAT5e Wall Plates & IR Extender – No Power Source Required
Our HDMI wall plate kit comes with a HDMI transmitter and receiver, which are perfect for long distance signal transmission (that would otherwise not be possible) and can be fitted to a standard UK back box. Our wall plates have IR eyes too which allow you to manage the equipment connected to your transmitter via the receiver with your remote control. Read below to find out more.

Distances above are based on using good quality pure copper CAT5e or CAT6 cable, please search through our shop if you wish to buy. If you are going to be running the cables nearby/around power cables, we recommend use of FTP CAT5e/CAT6 cable to provide a shield against interference. All cables should be wired in the 568B format.

What does it do and how do I use it?
The HDMI wall transmitter sits next to your source, such as a Blu-ray player and is connected to the source by a HDMI cable. The HDMI wall receiver should be plugged into an output device such as a HDTV, using a HDMI cable. The output device (HDTV) can be located up to 45 metres away (for 1080i resolution). Two runs of CAT5e or CAT6 cable can then be run in between the transmitter and receiver and connectors should be crimped on. We sell crimping tools and RJ45 connectors in our shop. Control of the source (Blu-ray player) via the receiver is possible using the IR eyes. Simply position the IR emitter eye (connected to the front of the transmitter wall plate) in front of your source (Blu-ray player) and point your remote control at the IR receiver (connected to the front of the receiver wall plate) which can be positioned in another room.
Our HDMI CAT5 extender allows installers to take advantage of CAT5e/CAT6 ethernet cable for connecting HDMI devices over long distances. An extender device such as this is a much more cost effective way to connect devices over long distances without loss of signal quality. CAT5e/CAT6 cable is relatively thin and flexible so it is easily installed, for example through walls. It can be self terminated which allows for tailored lengths to meet the exact requirements of any home or commercial installation.
