Congratulations on your purchase of the Extender for HDMI 1.3 over one CAT6. Your complete satisfaction is very important to us.

Gefen

Gefen delivers innovative, progressive computer and electronics add-onsolutions that harness integration, extension, distribution and conversion technologies. Gefen’s reliable,plug-and-playproducts supplementcross-platformcomputer systems, professional audio/video environments and HDTV systems of all sizes withhard-workingsolutions that are easy to implement and simple to operate.

The Gefen Extender for HDMI 1.3 over one CAT6

The Gefen Extender for HDMI 1.3 over one CAT6 will send a 1080p@60Hz HDMI 1.3 signal with 12-bitDeep Color support over a singleCAT-6acable at distances of up to 175 feet (50m).

HDMI 1.2 is still fully supported and can be extended up to 200 feet (60m) at resolutions of 1080i/p@60Hz.

Extension of high def nition can now be simplif ed with the use of only a single CAT-6acable. Previous solutions used two cables to accomplish this.

The Gefen Extender for HDMI 1.3 over one CAT6 supports the HDMI 1.3 specif cation with features such as Deep Color, Full 1080p HD and compressed lossless audio formats such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HDMaster Audio.

The CAT6 extender’s pure digital transmission method insures 100% signal integrity over this single cable extension solution.

How It Works

The Gefen Extender for HDMI 1.3 over one CAT6 system consists of send and receive units. The HDMI source (set-topbox, DVD player, or gaming console) connects to the sender unit with the supplied6-footHDMI cable. The receiver unit connects to an HDTV display. OneCAT-6acable links the sender and receiver together at distances of up to 200 feet. Power is applied to both the sender and receiver with the included 5V DC power supplies. A perfect image is now displayed on the remote HDTV display.

Note: This product is an HDCP pass-throughdevice.

CONNECTING AND OPERATING THE EXTENDER

How to Connect the Extender for HDMI 1.3 over one CAT6

1.Connect a HDMI cable (one is supplied) between the HDMI output on a HDMI source device and the HDMI input on the Extender for HDMI 1.3 over one CAT6 sending unit.

2.Connect a single CAT-6acable between the sending and receiving units.

NOTE: When f eld terminatingCAT-6acabling please adhere to the TIA/EIA-568-Bspecif cation. Please see page 11 for more information.

3.Connect a HDMI cable (user supplied) between the HDMI input on a HDMI capable output device (i.e. HDMI display) and the HDMI output on the

Extender for HDMI 1.3 over one CAT6 receiving unit.

4.Connect the included 5V DC power supplies (two are included) between the sending and receiving units and open wall power sockets.

5.Initialize the HDMI output device (i.e. HDMI display) f rst and the HDMI source device last.

How to Equalize the Extender for HDMI 1.3 over one CAT6

The Extender for HDMI 1.3 over one CAT6receiving unit has a equalization Trim to compensate for the extension distance and the quality/skew variances that are found in different CAT-6a cabling brands. If there is no output video or if output video has video artifacting and/or video noise, please use the steps below to adjust the equalization trimpot.

1.Insert a small f at head tool into the trimpot on the front panel of the receiver unit.

2.The trimpot has 8 set positions. Turn the trimpot in a clockwise fashion until it clicks into the next position. Continue adjusting the trimpot by trying all 8 positions until the issue is resolved.

3.Carefully remove the adjustment tool.

DIP SWITCH CONFIGURATION

DIP SWITCH CONFIGURATION – DEEP COLOR

By default, Deep Color support is disabled (DIP #2 in the OFF position). If Deep Color support is needed, you can change the position of one of the DIP switches on the bottom of the receiver:

1.If the Receiver unit is currently being powered, please disconnect the power adapter from the unit.

2.Turn the receiver unit upside down and locate the 4-DIPswitch bank on the bottom of the unit. NOTE: You may need to remove the piece of silver colored metallic tape to expose the DIP switch bank.

3.Refer to the image below and locate DIP #2 on the DIP switch bank.

4.Move DIP 2 to the “ON” position. This will enable Deep Color support and will be used only if the display supports this deep color. NOTE: DIP 1 must be in the “OFF” position in order to enable deep color.

5.Reconnect power to the receiver unit.

DIP SWITCH CONFIGURATION

DIP SWITCH CONFIGURATION – EDID

Under normal circumstances, a source device (digital and analog) will require information about a connected device/display to assess what resolutions and features are available. The source can then cater its output to send only resolutions and features that are compatible with the attached device/display. This information is called EDID (Extended Display Information Data) and a source device can only accept and read one EDID from a connected device/ display. Likewise, the source can only output one resolution for use by a connected device/display.

The Extender for HDMI1.3 over one CAT6 uses DIP #1 to control EDID modes. There are 2 EDID modes; LOCAL and PASSTHROUGH. The LOCAL mode will create a new EDID by copying all video and audio features of the connected device but will allow the user to control Deep Color support by the procedure on the previous page. By default, the unit is shipped in LOCAL mode where DIP #1 is in the OFF position. The PASSTHROUGH mode will simply allow all video and audio features of the connected device to pass through to the source device without control over Deep Color support. DIP #1 can be switched to the ON position to enable the PASSTHROUGH mode. However, if DIP #1 is switched to the ON position, enabling Deep Color (DIP #2=ON) will not affect the video features of the EDID.

When switching DIP #1 between the OFF and ON position, please follow the procedure outlined below:

1.Disconnect power from the receiver and locate the DIP switch bank on the bottom of the unit. NOTE: You may need to remove the piece of silver colored metallic tape to expose the DIP switch bank.

2.Refer to the DIP switch image (below) and locate DIP #1 on the DIP switch bank.

3.Move DIP #1 to the “ON” or “OFF” position. The “OFF” position will use the LOCAL EDID mode. The “ON” position sets the unit in PASSTHROUGH mode, allowing the source to use the original EDID features of the display.

4.Reconnect power to the receiver unit.
