Description

Why you might want a Lindy IR over HDMI extender kit

If you’ve hidden your audio-visual equipment away somewhere out of sight, maybe by putting it in a cabinet or even just behind a television screen, then the chances are you’re going to have a problem controlling it. This problem is caused by the fact that most audio-visual equipment uses infra-red light to receive instructions from its remote control. If you think of your remote control as a torch then you need to be able to shine the torch at your audio-visual equipment in order to get it to work. Obviously you can’t do that if there is a television or cabinet door in the way! The Lindy IR over HDMI extender kit solves that problem.

How the Lindy IR over HDMI extender kit works

The Lindy IR repeater cable comprises an IR receiver, an HDMI injector, an HDMI splitter and an IR emitter.

The HDMI injector connects to your HDMI cable at the display equipment end and the HDMI splitter connects to your HDMI cable at the source equipment end.

The IR receiver connects to the HDMI injector and the IR emitter connects to the HDMI splitter.

Place the IR receiver in sight of your own remote control, and the IR emitter directly over the IR receiver of the audio-visual device you want to control.

Simply operate your remote control whilst pointed at the IR receiver and the IR emitter will relay the control signal to your equipment.
