HDMI over Ethernet Monitor Display for Security Camera DVRs
HDMI over Ethernet extenders are a great solution for wiring the HDMI video output on security camera DVRs over long distances and to multiple TV monitors. Sometimes customers want to display a live view of their security cameras on a TV monitor that is installed more than 50 feet away from the DVR. Running HDMI cable longer than 50 feet is not possible. Additionally, some customers want to install multiple monitors in completely different rooms.
The HDMI can be installed a few different ways including direct HDMI over CAT6 connection and HDMI over IP using a network switch.
Direct HDMI over CAT6
This direct HDMI over CAT6 installation does not transmit the HDMI signal over an IP network. It is a direct peer-to-peer connection made by hard wiring the HDMI transmitter to the receiver using CAT6 cable.
HDMI over Ethernet (One to One)
For some installations, it may be easier to wire the HDMI over IP transmitter and receiver to a common network switch. This can be an existing network switch used for other devices on your network or a dedicated switch just for your HDMI transmission. This type of installation is true HDMI over Ethernet because the HDMI signal is actually traveling over an IP network.
HDMI over Ethernet (One to Many)
For customers that want to display their security cameras live on multiple monitors, additional HDMI receivers can be added to this system. One additional TV and HDMI receiver was added. If the customers wants the ability to remotely control the DVR from either TV location, an additional DVR remote can also be added to the system.
HDMI Matrix (Many to Many)
An HDMI matrix installation supports many transmitters and many receivers on the same network. Each receiver is able to able to display the video from any transmitter by selecting the channel on the front of the receiver.
