April 22, 2009--Designed for residential, commercial, and security applications, the Elite HD DHCT5 2x1 Cat5E to HDMI converter extends 1080i/720p up to 200 ft. and 1080p/1920 x 1200 up to 100 ft.

The HDMI 1.3 and HDCP-compliant converter also compensates for cable skew.

"The DHCT5 automatically switches between the devices via simplex switching technology," explains Tony Pelura, Centronics general manager. "It allows the conversion of two HDMI devices to be run over a single Cat5e cable, so it not only solves the problem of having only a single Cat5e wire, but it works as a switcher, as well."

MSRP is $299.99.
