"Item shipped right away and arrived within four days of ordering. I've ... always had excellent service. I highly recommend them."


The HL13 extends HDMI and IR signal over a TCP/IP network. One "Sender" can be used to extend the signal to multiple HL13 Receivers. The HL13 can also be used without a network switch as a "point-to-point" extender by using a single Cat5e/6 cable up to 330 ft.

NOTE: We recommend using the HL13 on a dedicated network switch because of the high bandwidth that video requires. You may use it on an existing network but you might experience network delays or heavy compression on the video.

Extra HL13 Receivers

How This Works

This kit comes as a pair, with one sender unit and one receiver unit.

  1. Connect the units together with a Cat5e/6 cable. If you are connecting multiple receivers to one sender, connect all units to the network switch.
  2. Connect your HDMI cables from the sender and receiver units to their respective display or source device.
  3. Plug in the included power supplies.
  4. Optional: Connect the included IR cables to control your source device from the display location.

Yes, you can use multiple senders on the same network, BUT you must assign each sender and receiver their own IP address manually to group each sender to their respective receivers.

Pros: Product was easy to set up and worked just as we expected. WE used it to send video/audio to our nursery at church. Nursery workers were very pleased that they could watch the sermon and still care for the young children.

Cons: None that come to mind

Other: I would recommend anyone who is looking to be able to extend a HDMI signal any distance at all to look into the HL 13 HDMI and IR over Ethernet cable as a solution. I find it works as good as the more expensive unit that is on our projector system.

Pros: Got 11 units to drive 11 displays (42 inch in 720p) form 50 to 280 ft. All unis are connected to HDMI 16 ports hub SW-29466 HDMI Splitter. System has been around one month and so far so good. Tested them at 720p and 1080p and did not have any issues. I use cat 6 cable with the product.

Cons: Out of 11 one did not work properly since beginning, however got amazing support from Sewell. They replaced unit instantly. Sometimes little shuttering occurring, however it is acceptable and does not affect general experience.

Other: I will be using this product again with any upcoming projects.

Pros: Versatile for the most part.

Cons: Not so great when using to display computer.

Other: Bought these for an event hall and the idea was to send video to an AV rack less than a 75' run to a Sewell Splitter and then to a projector and multiple TVs. When displaying cable or satellite feed it looks fine but when displaying a computer image it isn't that clear. I even bypassed the whole system and did a 25' run from the computer to the projector using one of these and it wasn't that clear and got complaints from clients. If I use a 100' HDMI from the computer to the projector and get a crystal clear image. Sewell Direct didn't know what to tell me so now I'm trying to figure out what to do here.

Works right out of the box

- 11/26/2018 9:19:42 PM

I hooked this up through a 100 ft Cat-5 cable and it works great. This solved a problem I was having with my WiFi router interfering with a wireless HDMI setup. The box has lots of cooling slots so I'm not worried about thermal problems either.
