  • Use this versatile extender receiver to connect a screen locally as well as output and extend HDMI signals over CATx to a second screen in a MediaCento HX 1 x 4 Transmitter application. On the RJ-45 (CATx) signal out port, you can link to either another one of these receivers or our non-cascadable MediaCento HX Receiver (VSPX-HDMI-RX).

    The MediaCento HX solution makes it easy and affordable to distribute HD video and 7.1-channel stereo audio from a single source to multiple screens over ordinary CATx cable. It extends Full HD (1080p) video signals as far as 130 feet (40 m) and 720p/1080i video up to 200 feet (60 m) over CATx*. Cascade up to 10 receivers to reach a total distance of 1300 feet (400 m).

    The solution provides pure, unaltered, and uncompressed 7.1-channel digital transmission of the HDMI signal. HDMI 1.3 compliant, the MediaCento HX supports single-link 225-MHz (6.75-Gbps) bandwidth for sharp full-motion rendering, synchronized video and audio with no perceivable delay, as well as Deep Color resolutions for enhanced color depth and refresh rates.

    The MediaCento HX system also has controls for minimizing skew and optimizing the signal over extended distances. You simply fine-tune the signal using a 16-level rotary dial for digital equalization control on the receiver.

    If you don't need to cascade to a second receiver, see our MediaCento HX Receiver (VSPX-HDMI-RX).

    * NOTE: Distance depends on the characteristics and quality of the cable and the type of HDMI source and display.
