Understanding the correct type of connection and cable to use with your StreamSpot ONE is essential to having the best quality broadcast and the most hassle free installation.
The StreamSpot ONE can broadcast video over HDMI or SDI connections. When running longer runs of cable SDI would be preferred as it is cheaper to run and can hold the signal quality over longer runs.
HDMI can be used but is not recommended in runs longer than 50ft. At this point, HDMI will begin to show degradation of quality.
In instances where Cat5 cable may already be run or you wish to utilize HDMI cable in a run longer than 50ft, you can utilize a CAT to HDMI extender that has an adapter at both ends to convert the signal back to HDMI.
