The newly-released series of signal extenders over LAN infrastructure extends HDMI signals and DVI/VGA KVM operation via Cat5e/6.

North Hollywood, CA (January 29, 2014) – For HDMI and KVM (Keyboard, Video and Mouse) signal extension, the new line of signal extenders from SmartAVI provides a useful and inexpensive way to break the distance barriers that previously limited end users. The new HLX-500 extends HDMI signals over LAN, and the new KLX-500 extends DVI and VGA KVM signals over LAN. Each device extends signals by 500 feet and is chainable, allowing for thousands of feet of signal extension by using multiple units.
