HDMI over Ethernet: 5 Facts You Need to Know before Installation

HDMI over Ethernet is quite useful for situations where traditional HDMI cables are not long enough, such as in large conference rooms, auditoriums, or home theaters. In our new blog, we will explore how HDMI over Ethernet works, how to extend HDMI over Ethernet, whether it requires power, how much bandwidth it requires, and what products you may need.

What Is HDMI over Ethernet?

HDMI over Ethernet is a technology that allows users to extend HDMI signals over long distances using Ethernet cables. It is a method of transmitting audio and video signals over a network. It involves sending HDMI signals from a source device, such as a Blu-ray player or computer, to a display, such as a TV or projector, through an Ethernet cable.

HDMI over Ethernet is becoming increasingly popular for use in home theaters, digital signage, and other commercial applications where long-distance HDMI signal transmission is required.

How to Extend HDMI over Ethernet?

To extend HDMI over Ethernet, you will need an HDMI over Ethernet extender. The extender consists of a transmitter and a receiver. The transmitter is connected to the source device, such as a computer or Blu-ray player, and the receiver is connected to the display device, such as a television or projector.

The transmitter and receiver are connected to each other using an Ethernet cable. The Ethernet cable can be up to 100 meters long, allowing for the transmission of HDMI signals over long distances. The Ethernet cable can also be connected to a LAN, allowing for even longer transmission distances.
