Product ID: STDHVHDBT
This multi-input video extender kit uses HDBaseT™ technology to extend your video signals up to 230 feet (70 meters) over a single CAT5e or CAT6 cable. It features a built-in video switch that enables you to choose which video source is outputted from four independent video sources (2 x HDMI, 1 x VGA and 1 x DisplayPort).The video extender supports Ultra HD 4K and Full HD 1080p video resolutions, with support for the accompanying digital 7.1 audio.
This HDBaseT extender features a built-in converter switch, so you can connect two HDMI sources as well as a VGA and a DisplayPort video source to the same remote HDMI display, without having to use additional adapters or scalers or a separate video switch.
With support for multiple video sources and HDBaseT, this extender is the perfect solution for adding a large display to your boardroom or classroom, enabling BYOD laptops with HDMI, DisplayPort or VGA outputs to share their display with the room.
The extender switch ensures hassle-free operation, with two different auto-switching modes: auto-detect switching, which detects and selects a newly connected device, or priority selection, which lets you choose which port should be activated by default for automatic switching.
The multi-input video extender kit is perfect for digital signage applications, where an automatic switch can replace a failed source with a secondary input to avoid embarrassing video outages. Plus, the combined built-in HDBaseT functionality means you can connect a remote digital signage display with one kit that reduces failure points.
The kit extends your video signal over a single cable, unlike some video extender systems that require two cables and only offer minimal audio support. Extending your video with one cable reduces potential failure points and also lowers your cabling costs.
Using standard CAT5e, CAT6 or CAT7 cables, the HDBaseT extender works with existing Ethernet infrastructure that's already built into large commercial buildings such as shopping centers, stadiums, schools, and hospitals, making it the perfect solution for deploying digital signage.
With high-quality HDMI cables beginning signal degradation at 30 feet, it can be difficult to maintain the brilliance of 4K video even at shorter distances. But with HDBaseT, you’ll be amazed at how your Ultra HD picture -- four times the resolution of high-definition 1080p, is just as brilliant even at distances up to 130 feet from your video source.
Even if you're not running 4K, HDBaseT supports High-Definition 1080p and lower resolutions at even greater distances, up to 230 feet from your source, giving you peace of mind knowing that this extender will comfortably work with any HDMI video source and display.
HDBaseT is a zero-latency connectivity standard 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, because it can do so much, with just a single cable.
The STDHVHDBT is TAA compliant and backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty with free lifetime technical support.

There are a few things you'll want to take care of before you deploy your new video extender in your setup.
It’s important to make sure you have everything you will need ahead of time. These items are listed below.
It’s also important to test everything in a simplified setup ahead of time to make sure everything works and that you understand how it works.
In order to set up your video extender, complete the following:
Note: Not all video extenders require external power, or require external power on both ends. Refer to the manual for more information.
Now that you have set up your video extender, you can check that everything is working. You should be able to see your video source's output on the display connected to the video receiver.
If at this point you have further questions regarding a Startech.com video extender, contact our technical support team for further assistance.
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.
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.
