The model UH-2C is a member of Hall Research Technologies’ popular and powerful Mini-CAT® video extension and distribution product line. The UH-2C is used to extend DVI or HDMI™ audio/video signal to 200ft @ 1080i/720P or 150ft @ 1080p on 2 Cat6 cables. Cat5e cables can also be used, however the maximum achievable distance would be much shorter (up to 50% less). Cables that are of lower quality and construction will also reduce the maximum distance. 23 Gage Cat6 STP (Shielded Twisted Pair) or Augmented Cat6 is highly recommended for distances over 75 ft
The UH-2C is compatible with HDMI™ versions 1.2a and 1.3. Only one power supply is needed for the setup (connected to the remote unit). Unlike some competing extenders, the UH-2C receiver not only automatically compensates for signal loss (equalization), but it also features an HDMI repeater function that re-aligns the pixel clock and data for the display. This removes any skew (timing mismatch) that may have been induced in the cable due to twist ratio variance in Cat6 cabling. The Re-clocking feature of the UH-2C allows the units to be daisy-chained together to extend the video and audio even farther! This means that you can achieve very long distances (for example, with 2 units you can extend 1080i/720P to 400 ft and farther by adding more units!). The unit is housed in a compact sturdy metal enclosure measuring 3.25 x 1.75 x 0.85 inch and includes a power supply.
