Extend HDMI over copper cables and keep sources and displays in sync

The Gefen Booster for HDMI with EDID Detective extends HDMI up to 150 feet (45 meters) at 1080p Full HD and up to 115 feet (35 meters) at 4K x 2K Ultra HD resolution, using standard copper HDMI cables. HDTV and Ultra HD displays use EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) to ensure that a connected Hi-Def source sends compatible audio and video signals. In some scenarios, this data can be lost, resulting in an incorrect signal or complete loss of audio and/or video. With DDC re-clocking technology, the reliability of HDCP handshaking is improved, ensuring that the Hi-Def source always receives the correct EDID. Using the Gefen Syner-G PC software or terminal emulation via USB, the installer can also manipulate/modify the EDID data to meet installation-specific requirements and resolve system-specific compatibility issues.The booster-detective has been designed for quick and easy programming and installation.

How It Works

To program the EDID, connect the included HDMI cable from the booster to the HDMI input of the display. Connect the included power supply to the booster and plug the power cord into an available electrical outlet. Disable the Write Protect Switch, set the DIP switches to the appropriate positions, and press the Program button. Once the EDID programming is completed, the display and power supply can be disconnected without losing the recorded EDID. If a suitable EDID cannot be recorded, there are six pre-programmed EDID profiles and six user-programmable EDID banks that can be used. Instructions for selecting one of the pre-programmed EDID profiles and for copying/uploading additional EDIDs are outlined in the user's manual.

Connect an HDMI cable, up to the recommended maximum cable length, from the Hi-Def source to the HDMI input on the booster. Re-connect the included DC power supply and plug the power cord into an available electrical outlet. Power on the source and the display and a pristine Ultra High Definition picture will appear.
