Product Overview This HVE290 additional receiver unit connects to your VigorSwitch 1281 via RJ45 (cable not included) and outputs to your TV, screen or projector's HDMI input

The DrayTek HVE290 takes an HDMI input from your video device (Satellite Receiver, DVD/Blu-Ray player, Cable TV box etc.) and converts it into an IP signal on standard CAT5e/CAT6 cable which can then be distributed by DrayTek's VigorSwitch V1281. Ports on the VigorSwitch 1281 not used for video can be used for normal data networking.

The HVE290 uses a video codec designed to balance bandwidth conservation with frame rate - i.e. to reduce dropping frames in fast-moving scenes which can cause 'jerkiness', particularly on larger screens or projectors in 'panning shots'. The HVE290 also provides full HD with up to 36-bit colour to ensure you get great resolution and picture fidelity, even on a large screen and can transmit regular PCM Stereo, Dolby® surround or DTS® sources to the receivers. The HVE290 can also downscale or upscale when you're using a one-to-many configuration with screens of different resolutions (e.g. transmit a 1080P picture and display it on a 720P and 1080P screen simultaneously).
