The Projector Connector™ Convertible HD over IP™ Rackmount Transmitter allows you to simultaneously send out 3 different HD Signals (up to 1080p) to one or more HDMI video projectors or LCD Panels and return an IR Control Signal to the source using CAT5/6/7 cable over a standard Ethernet infrastructure (alternate V.90 firmware available in our Downloads section must be installed for IR control). Can be used to distribute HD digital content from multiple sources to up to 200 displays on a LAN by cascading multiple Ethernet switches as needed. Longer distance applications can be sent across LAN Fiber backbones, allowing the farthest display to be located many miles from the 1080p source device while sustaining excellent picture & sound quality.. Each device is installed using 1 piece of UTP or STP cable. AV signals are transmitted digitally over the CAT5/6/7 cable without any signal loss. The integrated Scaler function allows different input and output resolutions up to 2048x2048 (different output displays can be at different resolutions). The Return IR Control function is best suited for a Point-To-Point application, and is of limited value in a Point-To-Many environment. For installations in a Many-To-Many environment it is necessary to use a third party home automation solution to provide distributed remote control functionality.
NOTE: Support for multiple transmitters requires a Managed network switch with VLAN/IGMP support. Standard LAN switches can only support 1 transmitter.
Not an HDMI Balun, but an HD over IP system. This means you can create your own A/V Ethernet network and all of the recievers will find the transmitter automatically. It may even be used over smaller existing house networks and low cost LAN switches and routers.
Any HD source can simultaneously be diplayed on any number of display devices (if multiple displays are permitted by the HD source) using VLAN isolation on a Managed Ethernet switch. Using an HTTP GUI like MediaSwitcher(tm) a PC (wired or wireless) can control what signal is being watched at each location. Sophisticated Home Theater installations can use a programmable console to control the system using RS232 commands. The Managed switch must support IGMP and permit duplicate IP addresses across the VLAN domains. You must use a third party home automation solution to provide distributed remote control functionality.

Home automation drivers have been written for many of these switches. These drivers are specific to the switch make/model and must often be customized to deliver the desired results. Please call us with the details on the home automation platform you intend to use to see if a driver has already been written to support a certain switch. We have drivers available for several platforms, including AMX, Crestron, Control4, Pronto, RTI, Savant, URC, and Vantage, with more being developed all the time.
