HDBaseT Extender, 100m (328ft)
Monoprice is a proud member of the HDBaseT™ Alliance
Expand your HDBaseT™ setup with this HDBaseT Transmitter from Monoprice!
HDBaseT is the superior standard for extending HDMI® video signals to distances up to 100 meters over just a single Cat6 Ethernet cable (up to 70 meters using Cat5e cable). Additionally, it can be daisy chained up to 8 times, giving a maximum total extension distance of up to 800 meters! It is no wonder that it is attracting the attention of audio/video equipment manufactures, such as Pioneer and Integra, both of whom offer Audio/Video receivers with built-in HDBaseT extender/transmitter units.
This HDBaseT transmitter is designed to work with any officially licensed HDBaseT receiver from any manufacturer. It allows for a full bandwidth 10.2Gbps data throughput over a single Cat5e or Cat6 cable. The full 10.2Gbps bandwidth means that it supports all High Speed HDMI functions, including all HDMI 3D video modes, the extended 4K cinema resolution, 32-bit Deep Color, and high-definition compressed lossless audio, such as DTS-HD Master Audio™ and Dolby TrueHD™.
The transmitter features a built-in, bidirectional infrared (IR) signal extender, which allows you to remotely control devices at the source or destination end of the connection. For example, normal operation would allow control of the source blu-ray player from the remote TV location. It comes with an IR transmitter bulb.
Additionally, HDBaseT is capable of transmitting a full-duplex 100Mbps local area network connection alongside the HDMI and IR signals. It has two RJ45 LAN jacks, which propagate a network connection throughout the HDBaseT environment. This allows you to wire another room for HDMI video, IR remote control repeating, and full internet access, using only a single Cat6 cable!
Note: While HDBaseT will function using unshielded Cat5e cabling, we recommend the use of shielded Cat6 cabling for greater reliability over longer distances. Also note that any cable run through the walls must be rated for in-wall installations.
This transmitter is identical to the receiver contained in the HDBaseT Extender Kit (PID 10225).
Note: Monoprice strongly recommends using 22AWG, 24AWG, or active HDMI cables with RedMere® technology to achieve the best results and to ensure minimum signal loss over longer distances.

Questions and Answers
PROS: - Inexpensive
- Easy to use
CONS: - Only lasted thirteen months
PROS: Best solution for a long cable run to a ceiling mounted video projector that supports HDbaseT.
CONS: As noted by others, does NOT negotiate HDCP. Projector status showed an HDbaseT link but no signal until I connected an HDMI splitter between the source and this device.
Our setup: Panasonic PT-EW640 projector at 720p with the "Digital Link" RJ45 connector. Cat5e cable running about 150 feet to the Extender in the sound booth. The extender plugs into the HDMI -to-Thunderbolt adapter coming out of the 27" iMac. It is also plugged into the network switch so I can interact with the projector's web page over the same cable. Works great. We have horrible RF interference in our location, and have tried all kinds of VGA, Coax, and other Cat5 Extenders. None have worked nearly as well as the Monoprice HD-BaseT Extender. Going strong for about 6 months, now.
PROS: Small, Works great.
CONS: Documentation very sparse and not intuitive. No mounting hardware/brackets.
PROS: Simple to get up and running. Works as advertised. Good finish and appearance.
CONS: A few more feet on the IR cable would be nice. This product would almost always be used to connect an AV hub to remote TVs. That means you need the IR to blast to a number of components. I've had to place this box out in front of the rack to give the IR emitter enough angle to reach all components.
PROS: Nice metal case HDBaseT works as advertisedno adjustments needed
CONS: The documentation doesn't tell you the function of the indicator lights. I found that the HDCP light flickers when data is being sent, regardless of whether the signal has HDCP content. I don't know what the Mode light indicates. The unit doesn't come with an IR receiver, just an IR blaster, so you will have to get one from elsewhere to control a projector.
The power supplies tested fine, so either the extender or receiver failed. Both also ran hot, so it could be poor design in terms of heat dissipation.
I suspect the failure rate of this product is fairly high. Monoprice should make some accommodations to customers who purchased this product to repair or replace them. $200 for a year of service is not acceptable.
PROS: Product works well and is reasonably priced
CONS: HDCP needs to be disabled since extender cannot negotiate it. Also when using a bunch of these, the power adapters can get a bit unruly.
