Designed to fit a standard single-gang electrical box, the 1180TD Decora Wallplate Transmitter can transmit component video and digital audio to either one or two receivers, at distances as great as 1000 feet, over a single Cat5-type twisted-pair cable, such as Cat-5, Cat-5e, or Cat-6.

The 1180TD is also available as a part of a complete distribution system as SCP-11D.  If you would prefer to have the same receiver in a stand-alone enclosure, please check out the 1180T transmitter.
