Please enter a quantity.
HDTV Supply's WolfPack HDMI to CAT5 Distribution system can display a single source on up to 100s of displays using a Single CAT5e/6 cable for each display. Our HDMI to CAT5 Distribution system family allows connecting any HDMI digital video source such as a PC, DVD player, Camera, AppleTV, Satellite, Cable Box, PC, Xbox, PS4 and more with an HDMI output to up to 100 of digital displays upwards of 300 feet away. The HDMI to CAT5 Distribution splits an HDMI signal into any number mirrored (the same) outputs without signal loss upwards of 300 feet.

Our Wolfpack Network HDMI Matrix Switch can be configured using 1 - Transmitter and dozens of Receivers (TVs) using the appropriate size Ethernet Switch. It uses CAT 5e/6 cables and a Gigabit Ethernet LAN switch with MJPEG techniques and an industry standard IP protocol to deliver 1080p video from sources that are 300 feet away from the Ethernet switch and another 300 feet away to the TVs. It also allows the system to grow in the field as its design allows you the flexibility of adding more displays to the system based upon the number of unused Ethernet ports available.

The transmitter has a static IP address and can pair with multiple receivers (up to 253). Multiple transmitters and multiple receivers can be paired on the same network.

HDMI to CAT5 Distribution Set Configuration Example:

Q: I have 5-TVs and 1-PC...1-TV 6 feet away, 1-TV 75 feet away, 2-TVs 150 feet away and 1-TV 225 feet away needing all the widescreens showing the same picture and having the same audio, what do I buy?

You will need to buy one 8-port Ethernet switch and 5-receivers plus 6-HDMI cables (see all above). A single HDMI to CAT5 transmitter comes with it.
