The Intelix DIGI-HD-1X8 HDMI Distribution Amplifier distributes one HDMI source to as many as eight remote locations, using twisted-pair cabling, such as Cat5 or Cat6.
Built-in HDshāk® technology provides dynamic HDMI, EDID/DDC and HDCP mode selection, guaranteeing performance and image quality. Plus, onboard HDMI amplification and buffering allows multiple receivers to be daisy-chained for greater distances.
If you take a look at the back panel, you will find a single HDMI input, seven pairs of twisted-pair output jacks, an HDMI output, and an IR return jack. To distribute HDMI only, only one single Cat5e/6 cable is required. If IR control from the remote zone(s) is also needed, two Cat 5e/6 cables are required.
When using Cat5e twisted-pair cable, the maximum range is 200 feet for 480i / 480p / 720p / 1080i signals and 100 feet for 1080p signals. If using shielded Cat6, the maximum range is extended to 300 feet for 480i / 480p / 720p / 1080i signals and 150 feet for 1080p signals. For even more range, cascade up to five DIGI-HD-XR repeaters.
The DIGI-HD-1X8 is HDMI version 1.3 capable as well, making it a perfect choice for more advanced systems. Advanced chipsets and firmware promise superior HDCP compatibility and trouble-free operation.
Included in the box is the DIGI-HD-1X8 unit itself, power supply, (1) IR Emitter and (4) screw-on feet.
Twisted-pair receivers are sold separately (below), so you can get exactly the functionality you need. Use any combination of receivers, up to a total of seven receivers. (add to your cart below):
As with virtually all systems that are based upon twisted-pair cable technology, the Intelix HDMI Twisted-pair Distribution System will work with virtually any twisted-pair cables, including Cat-5e and Cat-6, but range and bandwidth is directly related to both distance and cable quality, so to get the highest resolutions at the greatest distances, you will want high-quality, low-skew cables. Check the installation manual for more information. If you want the very best pre-terminated cables, please consider our VideoTwist cables.
Like most Intelix products, the DIGI-HD-1X8 comes with a two year limited warranty from the manufacturer.
The Intelix DIGI-HD-1X8 seamlessly distributes one HDMI input to eight HDMI outputs. Built-in twisted pair extenders provide cabling distances up to 300 feet when used with compatible Intelix twisted pair receivers, such as the DIGI-HD-UHR2, DIGI-HD-IR3, and DIGI-HD-XR.
When distributing HDMI audio and video over twisted pair cabling, the DIGI-HD-1X8 requires a single Cat 5e or Cat 6 cable.
When distributing HDMI audio and video and IR over twisted pair cabling, the DIGI-HD-1X8 requires two Cat 5e or Cat 6 cables. IR is transmitted from the remote destination, through the compatible Intelix twisted pair receiver, over the twisted pair cable, and out of the IR OUT port on the DIGI-HD-1X8 to the source equipment.
The DIGI-HD-1X8 supports 3D, is HDCP compliant, and features proprietary Intelix HDshāk processing, including bandwidth limiting and custom EDID configuration and emulation.
Intelix HDshāk technology delivers the highest level of EDID negotiation, ensuring proper source & destination handshaking over twisted pair every time.
