Product ID: ST124HDBT
This 3-Port HDBaseT™ extender kit lets you extend an HDMI® source to three remote locations, using HDBaseT technology. The kit includes three remote receiver units, and the transmitter features a local HDMI output, which gives you the ability to keep a fourth HDMI display at your local video source.
This all-in-one extender kit saves you the complications and compatibility issues that can happen if you're not using the correct receivers. It’s perfect for use in corporate environments such as small or large offices, or in retail, hospitality, and educational establishments.
With the A/V industry adopting 4K as its new high-resolution standard, long-range video distribution can be difficult, especially considering the 4K distance limitations on standard HDMI cables. You’ll be amazed at how this HDBase-T extender kit can deliver your video signal to three different locations while maintaining 4K Ultra HD picture quality. You get four times the resolution of high-definition 1080p, even at 115 feet (35 m) away from your video source.
The extender is also backward compatible with 1080p at 230 feet (70 m), so you can comfortably use it to make any video source look great.
HDBaseT technology offers a single-cable installation, so you can integrate this solution seamlessly using your existing CAT5e or CAT6 infrastructure. Plus, each device included with the HDBaseT extender kit is mountable, so you can keep the equipment out of sight in an equipment rack, or on a wall. This helps to reduce clutter and ensure a professional installation that doesn't draw your viewers' attention away from the content on your display. It’s perfect for customer-facing displays in bars or restaurants.
HDBaseT is a standardized, zero-latency video technology that’s revolutionizing HDMI distribution. HDBaseT uses an advanced method of modulation that enables you to distribute uncompressed HDMI audio and video, along with additional signals, over a single Ethernet cable.
Offering greater versatility than traditional HDMI extenders, and longer distances than HDMI cables alone, HDBaseT is the clear choice for every integrator and system designer. It can do so much, with just a single cable.
The ST124HDBT is backed by a 2-year StarTech.com warranty and free lifetime technical support.

To get the highest quality signal from your source to your display when you use an HDMI extender, do the following:
Make sure that the HDMI versions of the source, extender, and destination are compatible. For example, if you require 3D support, make sure that all of the devices can support 3D over HDMI.
Use the least amount of adapters, splitters, or converters as possible. Each device that you use in your setup creates additional points of potential failure and creates more steps for an HDCP key to hop through, which may cause issues with older displays. For more information on HDCP, refer to the following FAQ: http://www.startech.com/faq/video_signal_converters_HDCP.
Use an HDMI extender that exceeds the requirements of the setup. For example, if you need to extend the signal 200 feet, it is best to use an extender capable of more than 200 feet.
Make sure that all of the CAT 5/6 runs are as straight as possible, with the least amount of coiling.
Make sure that all of the patches, wall jacks, and cables use the highest possible CAT specification, (for example, CAT 6), and were tested to conform to the standard.
Use patches, wall jacks, and cables with the same pin configuration. For more information on T568A versus T568B wiring, refer to the following FAQ: http://www.startech.com/faq/network_cables_a_vs_b_pinout.
Keep the cabling away from sources of high noise.
Make sure that you use adequate electrical grounding in your setup.
When you troubleshoot issues with a video extender, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:
Video and Ethernet cables
Video source (such as a DVD player or computer)
Video destination (such as a monitor or projector)
Note: When you are testing setup components, you should avoid using video adapters. For example, if you are converting a VGA source to HDMI for use with an HDMI extender, you should use an HDMI source when you test the components.
To test your setup components, try the following:
Use the cable, video extender, video source, and video destination in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.
Use a different cable, video extender, video source, and video destination in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.
When you test your cables, it is recommended that you do the following:
Test each cable individually.
Use short cables when you are testing.
When you test the video source and video destination, it is recommended that you do the following:
Remove the video extender from your setup and test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together without the video extender.
Test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together at the resolution that you want to use.
Note: In order for your setup to work properly, the video source, extender, and destination all need to support the resolution that you are using.
This device supports up to 4Kx2K resolutions @30 Hz with a color depth of 8 bits. If you are running a 4K resolution at a refresh rate higher than 30 Hz or a color depth higher than 8 bits, your display will appear blank.
To resolve this issue, you need to lower the resolution, refresh rate, or color depth, by completing any of the following:
If you need to use a video extender with a video adapter or converter, you should position the adapter or converter as close to the video source as possible. For example, if you need to take a VGA signal from a computer and send it 200 feet to an HDMI® projector, you should convert the signal from VGA to HDMI and use an HDMI extender.
Note: For more information on when to use cables or extenders, see the following FAQ: http://www.startech.com/faq/video_signal_converters_when_to_convert.
Yes, this video extender works with set-top boxes, provided the set-top box meets the following requirements:
No, this device is designed to be a point-to-point solution using networking cabling only.
This device outputs HDMI video signals. If you have a display or video destination that uses another type of video connection, there are ways that you can convert the video signal or connection. These options are outlined below and organized by the target connection.
When you consider whether to convert an HDMI video signal to another connection type, it is important to know if the media that is being converted from the HDMI video connection is protected by High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP). If the media is protected by HDCP, you cannot convert to analog video connections because they do not support HDCP. You may experience this issue when you use devices like Blu-ray players, DVD players, and certain gaming consoles.
