This HDMI signal booster lets you increase the signal strength of your HDMI video source so you can connect an HDMI display up to 115 ft. (35 m) away, using standard HDMI cables. You can place the booster inline between two HDMI cables, up to 82 ft. in length at the video input, and up to 33 ft. in length at the video output.

HDMI booster extends a video source to a display

Discreet installation

With its small form factor, the HDMI booster is easy to hide, for a discreet installation. You don’t need an external power adapter to operate the signal booster, and it includes mounting hardware, so installing it is hassle-free. By extending your video signal using standard HDMI cables, the HDMI booster is a cost-effective alternative to more expensive HDMI extension systems that require the installation of CAT5 or CAT6 cabling infrastructure.

Compatible with varying distances

The HDMI booster features an equalization switch with ten different levels. The equalization switch lets you adjust the amplification of your HDMI signal based on the distance of your cables, so that you can ensure your HDMI signal will be perfect even at distances up to 115 ft. (35 m). The booster is perfect for boardrooms, offices or classrooms that may require varying distances depending on the room size. 

Maintains high-definition video signals

When extending HDMI over long distances using standard video cabling, higher resolutions can become unavailable. Using the HDMI signal booster ensures that you’ll still be able to depend on high-definition resolutions up to 1080p at 60Hz.

The HDBOOST is backed by a 2-year StarTech.com warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Applications

  • Avoid running network cabling to extend video signals, by using this booster with standard HDMI cabling
  • Boost the signal strength of your HDMI video signals for classroom, office or boardroom displays

Frequently Asked Questions

Installation

This device is plug and play. It does not use any drivers, and does not require any setup tasks other than plugging in the source (for example, a computer) and the destination (for example, a monitor).

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.

Troubleshooting

  1. The power adapter may not be connected at the correct unit or may not be connected at all.  Please check your product manual to see where your power adapter has to be positioned.
  2. An adapter to another video signal may be connected to the Transmitter or Receiver unit.  Please avoid any converters for the initial setup.
  3. The Cat 5 or 6 cable coming from the transmitter or receiver unit may be connected to a network switch.  Some of our video extenders will work in this configuration, but others will not. Please check your product manual to see if your model can be used connected to an IP network. For the initial setup, avoid connecting the Cat 5 or 6 cables to any network switch, hub, or router.
  4. The category of Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) cables may not meet StarTech.com’s requirements. Ensure at least Cat 5, 5e, or six cables are used, and they have eight wires. Some Cat 5 cables only have four wires. If using Cat 6 cables, be aware they have more twists per foot, so you may have to use shorter cable lengths if using Cat 6 cabling between your video extenders.
  5. Bundling up the UTP cabling connected to the extenders can cause crosstalk, which will prevent the video signal from showing on the display.  Unwrapping the cable should resolve this issue.
  1. Please check to see if your model has an adjustable Gain dial on the remote unit.
  2. If it does, use it to adjust the color until it is acceptable.
  3. Replace the VGA cable with a higher quality cable like StarTech.com’s MXT101MMHQ.

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 extender

  • 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.

Before You Buy

Yes, this video extender works with set-top boxes, provided the set-top box meets the following requirements:

  • The set-top box must be High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) compliant.
  • The set-top box must support devices being connected between the video source and display. If the set-top box requires a direct cable connection between the video source and display, it won't work with this video extender.

This device has an HDMI input port.  If you have a video source that uses another video connection, there are options available to convert the video signal or connection. These options will be outlined below for each video source connection.

Produces dropouts

By: nikitaka - 04-13-2019
I got 50 feet hdmi cable to projector, sometimes there are dropouts. With this device things are much worse! Impossible to use at all, glitches stars just after few seconds of usage. I'm not using power adapter, as it was said that it's optional. Very dissapointed.

Thank you for the review of our HDBOOST HDMI signal booster. We are sorry to hear it did not work as needed in your setup, this is not expected behavior for this device. One thing to check is the length of cable on either side of the unit, with the optimal setup being up to 83 feet from the source device to the booster, and up to 33 feet between the booster to the screen or projector. This means that the longer length of cable should be before the booster instead of after. If this device still is not working well after ensuring this, please contact our support at 1 800 265 1844, or click the green "Chat Live" in the top left of our website.
