There are various types of extenders (over HDBaseT, fiber, IP, etc.) and they help convert audio-visual data to run over a better medium where the data can go further without losing the quality. Therefore you can get access to the remote computing device as it’s nearby.
So what is the difference among different types of extenders and when you shall choose an HDBaseT extender? You may get some ideas from this post. Three HDBaseT extenders are recommended in this article. They are among AV Access best-sellers and are found helpful in different use scenarios by our users.
Top Three HDBaseT Solutions
View Your Security Camera In the House
If you wanna monitor and control the security camera NVR in your living room, you may need to log in to the service on the browser or run long HDMI/USB cables into your house.
However, people may not prefer these solutions. A third-party platform may increase lag and could break down sometimes if the server is not stable. Running long cables could reduce the data quality if the distance is longer than the length a common reliable cable could run.
It’s hard to find an HDMI cable that runs over 30 feet and still works reliably. Most HDMI cables on the market extend 5 – 20 feet. That won’t be enough to connect your TV in the living room and the camera on the patio.
The advantages of this HDBaseT KVM extender.
- The boxes run HDMI and USB over Ethernet up to 100 meters.
- It cracks the distance issue and enables remote control of the NVR over a keyboard, a mouse, and other possible USB peripherals.
- You can get on board quite easily. Just plug and play. No extra driver or app is needed.
- 4K UHD & Zero Latency
- USB 2.0 up to 480Mbps:
- 4x USB 2.0 device port on the receiver
- Bi-Directional Stereo/RS232
- Certificated by CE, FCC
Watch Smart TV in the Home Theater
Home theater is a place for families and friends to jump out of everyday life and immerse themselves in a wonderful story. Many families have their media rack set in the basement and a home theater built upstairs. In this circumstance, an HDMI extender is a must to help convey data from the source device in the media room to the TV upstairs.
There is one thing to be mentioned – make sure whether you need an ARC feature and get an HDMI extender that supports it if yes. If you are using a smart TV for your home theater, you probably would need an ARC extender.
When you run services like Amazon Prime or Apple TV on your TV set, the sound should be connected to your AV receiver in order to get out through the stereo. The built-in speaker on the TV may be crappy. As your AV receiver is now extended to the media room connected with your set-top box and blue-ray player, ARC (audio return channel) function could return TV sound to the media room and have it broadcast via your AV receiver.
The advantages of this HDBaseT HDMI extender.
- Transmit 4K@60 4:4:4 UHD video signal up to 40m/130ft.
- HDCP 2.2 Compliant.
- The ARC feature sends the TV sound back to the AV receiver.

A Single PC for Multi-site Use
Many WFHers separate their space of work and entertainment to keep the boundary clear. Or sometimes people just wanna use the PC in the basement when they are in their bedroom, for work, or for gaming. For getting access to the PC from another remote place, this HDBaseT DP KVM extender is a nice pick.
