HDMI Extender Over Cat5 / Cat6 Cable with Built-in IR (Up to 394ft at 1080p)


The Videotel 2026 extends your HDMI connection up to 328 feet using a single Cat5e cable or 394 feet using a single Cat6 cable. Extending your HDMI cable using Cat5e / Cat6 cables saves you money and is easier to run through walls and other compact areas. The HDMI extender includes 2 IR cables, which allows you to control your HD2600, VP70 LTE, VP70XD, VP71XD, Blu-ray, DVD player, or any other HDMI enabled device into another area of the room, such as a cabinet and have the ability to control it without pointing at the cabinet. These extenders can be used in homes, offices, restaurants, bars, and any location that you need to run an audio/video signal over longer distances. Please see diagram 1


Another solution is for splitting your signal using UTP cables to view on multiple monitors or viewing devices. Depending on how many ports you have on your router or switch, this will allow you to split the signals using UTP cables. After you split your signals you will need extra receiver(s) to finish the set up. Extra receivers are part #9902. Please see diagram 2


For longer distances you can use this device with a router or switch. Using a router or switch will help extend the distance another 100M (per router or switch), you can daisy chain multiple routers to continue to extend your distance. Please see diagram 3

Please Note: Only the IR emitters that come with the product are compatible. IR emitters that are not purchased with this kit will not work

  • Science Museum of Oklahoma testimonial
    Most of our units have been replaced with Videotel equipment, many of which are still operating more than three years, as opposed to the few months we received from regular players.

  • President / TTC INC/ The Travelers Channel testimonial
    In the past (5) years, our company TTC INC/The Travelers Channel has purchased about 100 DVD Videotel units. The company operates a 24 hour visitors channel called The Travelers Channel in hotels, the Videotel DVD player has been the answer to our prayers. The DVD player runs 24 hours a day, like a fine Swiss watch. And if there is a power outage, the unit comes right back on without a manual reset. The Videotel DVD player also plays all formats of DVD discs without any problems. I highly recommend these units to any one.

  • Audio Visual Manager / Foxwoods Resort Casino / MGM testimonial
    We have DVD players scattered throughout a massive property in retail and promotional areas. In the past, after a power interruption, a technician would have to physically walk to each location and power the units on. The units are not located in the most ideal locations. The life expectancy was only several months. We purchased our first Videotel DVD player several years ago and have not touched it again. I have since replaced all the units with Videotel players. The new V2200 is more compact and easier to place in tight areas. It has one simple job – PLAY, REPEAT. It is a great product at an affordable price!

  • United Grinding testimonial
    I think that this unit has been phenomenal. We used several home based systems that would soon fail and we had almost daily problems. Now that we have switched. I do believe that our failure of DVD front side has never failed.

  • KG Fitness testimonial
    We have 4 different channels in our fitness center that play prere corded content. We used to buy new DVD players almost every month as they would die after 24hour daily use. Now with the industrial DVD players they run nonstop trouble free and are simple for our non technical staff to use. I would highly recommend there (I actually did to another gym) to anyone who needs constant play.

    We have had great success using your Industrial DVD player. We use it for an incredibly simple application, but the durability and reliability of your player is a requirement. I like the new look as well.

  • Skin Laundry testimonial
    From the minute I found Videotel on the internet I was excited. Finally something that looked simple and reliable.  It literally took 5 minutes from opening the box to get rid of all the previous pain and frustration. I will strongly recommend Videotel to anybody looking for a looping video solution. It's incredibly simple to setup, there is no strain on valuable bandwidth, and best of all it never falters.

    We installed the HD2600 players the same day we received them. I installed the disc, pushed the power button and that was the last time I touched them. They are awesome.
