Description

The URA-XT Mini-Cat® is a daisy-chainable Video and Audio over UTP (Cat5/5e/6) receiver.  It has an RJ45 input, with a compensated RJ45 output for driving downstream receivers. This eliminates the need for running separate cables from every receiver back to the sender (in star or home-run fashion) – a very useful feature when several receivers are located in a line going away from the sender.
It can accommodate a total daisy-chain length of 3,750 feet (> 1 Km) with up to 5 devices in each chain. supports resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 at 60Hz. The URA-XT can be extended with more URA, URA-SKU or URA-XT receivers. Made in the USA.
