CHOOSE YOUR CAT 5 TV, VIDEO AND HDTV SYSTEM

HDTV over Cat 5 When choosing a Klicktv cat 5 TV or video distribution system, the principal factors to consider are:
  • number of sources
  • number of display points
  • resolution of the TV or video image to be distributed and whether it is analogue or digital
  • Cable distances
  • Number of Cat 5 cables required per display point
  • IR path for control of a source from a display point
  • HDTV support
  • TV screen EDID compatibility
  • Cost

What are the options for HDTV distribution?

HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) is a form of digital copy protection designed to prevent copying of digital audio and video content as it travels across DVI and HDMI interfaces

The key issue with HDTV distribution is whether the source to be distributed is HDCP compliant. If it is, an HDCP compliant distribution system is required to avoid serious degradation of picture quality. This is the case for example with the HDMI output of a Blu Ray player or Sky HD receiver. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to find Klicktv HDCP complaint distribution systems.

If the source is not HDCP protected, distribution is more straight forward. Sources can either be distributed as digital DVI or HDMI signals or the corresponding HD component (analogue) outputs, found on a lot of source equipment, can be used for effective HD distribution.
