The most cost effective solution to 4K HDMI extension!
For those who need the best of everything! Extend 4K/60Hz HDMI over Ethernet cabling with a local HDMI Pass-through port. Use this sender & receiver set to extend 4K/60 HDMI signals via low-cost CAT6 cables. Supports video, audio AND IR extension over 70m with a single CAT6 cable when using our amazing 4K HDMI extender! There's also a pass-though HDMI port for running another screen at the sender end of the set up.
Pumping Ultra High-Definition 4K/60 HDR video and audio over seventy metres can be an expensive and sometimes futile exercise. You have to consider your cabling quality, your run length, environmental interference and sometimes easily overlooked things like obstacles or tight bends. These hurdles are not easily overcome by HDMI, and even when they can be, you're running into costly territory. Believe me; I've tried all kinds of crazy configurations to achieve long 4K runs, and very little has worked properly!
The HDMI Extender over CAT6 is the simple, faultless solution. I've brought it along to help out everybody else like me who sometimes (or always) needs to get their crystal-clear 4K multimedia extravaganzas to stretch from source to display even when they're up to 70m apart. This HDMI Balun transmitter/receiver set hooks up to your equipment via short length HDMI cables, and they talk to each other via either one RJ45-terminated Cat6 Ethernet cable. The powered units are good for up to 70 metres depending on your signal type.
The added bonus comes when you realise how much easier it is to run shielded or unshielded Ethernet cable through your walls, floors and ceilings than HDMI cable – this transmitter/receiver set will save you time, money, and maybe even a little backache! The signal is clear and strong; as good as using a premium 5m HDMI cable directly plus it can also send Infrared signals for full remote control use!
Make no mistake; this unit was designed for delivering uncompressed 4K video and audio over long distances. Also built into the transmitter unit is a second HDMI port so you can run the same signal to a local TV or monitor at the same time as sending to the TV 70m away. You won't find this kind of power or clarity at 70 metres anywhere else! Don't forget to grab some HDMI and CAT6 cabling while you're here!

My house is wired with ethernet cable. I want to be able to watch vlc files stored on a PC on a screen in another room less than 50 metres away. At present I am able to do so using a vga to ethernet converter from the PC and then an ethernet to vga converter at the screen.
Will this product enable me to achieve the same result with HDMI instead of vga?
"Yes, but you will need two ethernet cables instead of one as HDMI cannot be sent over just the one ethernet cable."

What issues can arise when using this product with Apple TV?
I'm planning on using this device to send HDMI from Apple TV to a projector just over 40m?
"Protected iTunes content may not make it to the projector. We've not had the opportunity yet to independently test this device with Apple TV to know for sure how it will handle protected content. Many devices like switches, splitters, extenders, converters, and even AV receivers can be blocked by Apple TV due to content protection, but we can't know which ones are affected without testing."
