Connecting to an HDBaseT Transmitter

To send an HDMI or RS-232C signal over a long distance, you can connect the projector to an optional HDBaseT transmitter using a 100Base-TX network cable. This is useful when you want to send a signal to or control the projector from a remote location, such as in a hall or event site, since you can use a network cable up to 328 feet (100 m) in length. To ensure proper data transmission, use a Category 5e STP cable or better.
  1. Turn off the projector and HDBaseT transmitter.
    Note: Make sure the projector and HDBaseT transmitter are turned off when connecting or disconnecting a network cable between the two devices.
  2. Connect one end of the network cable to the HDBaseT port on the transmitter.
  3. Connect the other end to the projector's HDBaseT port.


    See the documentation that came with the HDBaseT transmitter for instructions on connecting it to your video device or computer.
  4. Turn on the projector and HDBaseT transmitter.
Note: To enable communication from the Ethernet and serial ports on the transmitter, select On as the Control Communications setting in the projector's Extended menu. Turning on this setting disables the projector's LAN, RS-232C, and Remote ports.
