NEW Tech!! Better Solution for delivering HDMI

Previously we had highlighted 3 Snap AV’s HDMI products.  This time we decided to highlight the newest Balun solution from SNAP AV.

This device is useful for when you need to deliver HDMI 1.4 and other signal over Long distances.  when you factor in the cost of a 40 foot HDMI cable, or even longer (hdmi looses signal over 45 feet) it just makes sense to use a single cat 5 cable up to 200 feet  to feed your tv or projector.  Also, consider the fact that hdmi is much thicker and harder to run through walls than cat 5.   It has great applications for running video to your projector,  or when you have your home theater equipment in another area besides directly below your tv, i.e. in a closet or seperate room.

From Snap AV site:

Our testing has found that the Samsung BD-C6900 and BD-P3600 Blu-Ray players are not compatible when using the HD-2CAT-130 extenders at 130 feet.  During our testing we did see some success when using these players with our HD-2CAT-130 at distances less than 80 foot.  We have found that the TDMS output signal of these players is weaker than other brands, which causes communication issues at longer distances. 

One solution to this problem is to use our B-200-1CAT-HDIR or B-200-5COAX-HD products which condition and retransmit the TDMS signals.  We recommend using the B-200-5COAX-HD which has exceptional immunity to interference, reliability at long distance (250’), high bandwidth to support current and future 3D capability, and IR pass-through for receivers and emitters.
