The HDMI over IP Encoder allows HDMI audio/video signals to be extended at up to a 4K resolution via Cat6 or Cat6a cable. The encoder is compatible with the HDMI over IP Decoder (C2G 29976) to support multiple configurations and offers the flexibility to support a digital signage system, video wall, point-to-point extension, including multi-view capabilities, and the ability to create scalable audio/video matrix switching to over 600 devices. HDMI over IP solutions are perfect for retail, corporate, security, and education environments. The exceptionally low bandwidth requirements of this device combination allows for streaming audio/video content over a local network and over the Internet for distributed installations. The encoder accepts a 4K video @ 30Hz and streams the content to an H.264/H.265 decoder to be displayed on a 4K monitor. The encoder may also send H.264/H.265 video streams to other H.264/H.265 compatible decoder devices. The device supports PoE (PD) and may be powered by a PoE (PSE) Ethernet Switch. Note: When installed in an electrically noisy environment, an STP cable must be used. Also, cross-connection reduces the effective distance depending on the grade of twisted cable used.
