The 1x4 HDMI® Amplifier Splitter is designed to split and distribute a single High Speed HDMI® signal to up to four televisions/HD displays at distances up to 50m (164 feet). This device is ideal for use in a large home or business with multiple HD televisions displaying the same signal from a single source.
Each output is transmitted over two Cat5e/Cat6 cables (either shielded/STP or unshielded/UTP) to a receiver unit (not included), which decodes the signal back into HDMI® for direct connection to a television. The splitter also includes an infrared (IR) repeater, which allows you to control the source device from any remote location.
The splitter supports full 1080p High Speed video and provides full 3D compatibility. It also support high definition 5.1 audio (Dolby TrueHD™ and DTS-HD Master Audio™) and Deep Color 36-bit video, although with 36-bit color it is recommended to limit the video resolution to 720p. A DIP switch on the back of the unit allows you to control the EDID settings, which controls the display type seen by the source device. This allows you to either force a particular display characteristic (such as 1080p with 5.1 audio) or choose a setting that is compatible with all connected displays.
The front panel contains a power switch, power LED indicator, and LEDs for each output to indicate when a valid HDMI® connection is established. A pair of mounting ears allow the unit to be fixed into place and soft rubber feet help protect the finish of any surface upon which it is placed. The back panel contains a single, gold-plated HDMI® input jack, four pairs of Cat5e/6 output jacks, a 3.5mm jack for the IR transmitter, a power-input jack for the external 5V DC power supply, and a 3-pin DIP switch for controlling the EDID signal.
This device requires the use of a Cat5e/Cat6 STP/UTP receiver for each display. Please use PID 8676 and/or PID 8677 for this purpose.
Note: While this unit will work with Cat5e UTP cable, it is recommended to use Cat6 and/or STP cable for best results, especially when extending to longer distances.
IMPORTANT: This device requires cable terminations wired to the EIA/TIA 568B standard.
Note: Monoprice strongly recommends the use of minimum 24 AWG HDMI® cables when connecting a device, such as this extender/splitter, between the source and destination devices to ensure minimal signal loss and maximum High Speed signal reliability.

6,000 + (and growing) factories in our existing network are eager to make it for you.
When it comes to selling in stock products, we are no difference from many other Internet retailers, but we take pride in going extra miles to do something special for you: Have some products custom made for you.
We cannot do everything, but we usually can accommodate a certain changes in product options such as color, size, material, or minor design twist. We primarily work with vendors or factories, not individual artist or craftsman. For custom made products, we usually only cater to bulk size order that meets the minimum quantity requirement of a single factory run. Don't be shy. Ask. What we can accomplish may surprise you!
