Overview

This 4K HDMI® signal booster lets you increase the signal strength of your HDMI video source so it can travel greater distances using standard HDMI cables. You can achieve resolutions up to 4K at 60Hz at distances of up to 30 ft. (10 m), and depending on your desired resolution, the booster supports distances up to 115 ft. (35 m) away at 1080p 60Hz resolution.

To install the booster, place it between two HDMI cables. Reference the table below for supported resolutions and cable lengths.

15 ft. (5 m) 15 ft. (5 m) 30 ft. (10 m) 4K (60 Hz) - 3840x2160

Maintains Ultra HD 4K video signals at 60Hz

When you’re extending HDMI over distances using standard video cabling, higher resolutions from your HDMI 2.0 devices can become unavailable after a few feet. Using this HDMI signal booster ensures that HDMI 2.0 resolutions up to UHD 4K at 60Hz are available even at distances up to 30 ft. (10 m).

You can achieve even longer distances at lower resolutions -- up to 4K at 30Hz, at up to 82 ft. (25 m), and 1080p at 60Hz at up to 115 ft. (35 m).

Easy and discreet installation

With its small form factor design and no external power adapter, the HDMI booster is easy to hide, for a discreet installation. By extending your video signal using standard HDMI cables, the 4K booster is a cost-effective alternative to more expensive extension systems that require the installation of a CAT5 or CAT6 cabling infrastructure.

Supports a variety of distances

The booster makes it easy to adjust your HDMI signal strength based on the distance of your cables, with equalization adjustment buttons. This means that you can adjust the amplification of your HDMI signal, to ensure your signal will be flawless.

Support for a variety of extension distances makes the booster perfect for multi-device deployment across large institutions, such as boardrooms in corporate offices, classrooms in schools, or waiting rooms in hospitals, as these applications may require varied distances in different rooms.

Note: To achieve resolutions up to 4K60, your video source, display and cabling must support HDMI 2.0.

The HDBOOST4K is backed by a 2-year StarTech.com warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

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

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.
