How to carry the HDMI signal up to 150 meters away from the source using KVM Extenders. Also useful for controlling the remote device with mouse and keyboard.
Transferring a video signal over a long distance is a common need when it comes to companies but also to smaller companies.
There are wireless devices that allow data to be transferred from a connected source, for example within the same WiFi network: however, they cannot ensure a stable connection by excluding any possible interference.
The HDMI KVM Extender they are compact devices that are designed to transfer video and audio signals over considerable distances, often in the order of 100 meters or more.
We know how important it is to choose the right HDMI cable: even i quality HDMI cableshowever, they cannot be longer than 15-20 meters (maximum value).

Installation via a network cable allows a considerable transmission distance to be reached while containing installation costs, a rather economical but at the same time reliable solution.
The device called to play the HDMI audio video stream must be located within 100 meters of the transmitter and connected to the receiver via HDMI cable.
With the help of one network switches you can transfer the HDMI signal without problems even over a distance of 150 meters.
