HDMI over CAT5E or CAT6 Extenders
Running HDMI over longer cable runs, through walls or in bars, restaurants or commercial establishments can be problematic at best. The solution is to use an HDMI over CAT5E or CAT6 extender.

The last kit can be used as a standard point to point solution, but it also supports point to multi-point transmission. Start with the sender and receiver, and a 10/100 or Gigabit Ethernet switch. Connect the source to the transmitter and connect the transmitter the switch. Then connect the receiver to another switch port. Keep adding receivers as needed, up to 250 receivers. This is a nice simple way to distribute HDMI to multiple displays over single CAT5E or CAT6 cable runs! Perfect for restaurants, bars, electronic signage and more.
