This MHUB 4K multiroom system with support for the newest 4K devices with HDCP 2.2 encryption is the perfect addition to your smart home. Watch any four entertainment devices in 4K ULTRA HD on up to four UHD TV’s.

For 2018 HDANYWHERE has increased the value for money even further on this product by adding full support for UCONTROL from our professional range of matrices. This allows the end-user to have complete control of their AV system from their Apple or Android device free of charge!

The system comprises of a central hub, where all HDMI sources are connected and three palm-sized, easily-hideable lightweight receiver units, which sit behind each screen and drawing their power from the central hub, so no bulky wall PSU or USB 5v cables are required.

Uncompressed AV content is delivered by harnessing HDBaseT (Class B) transmission technology, which doesn’t introduce any degradation in video quality - even at Ultra HD Blu-ray playback resolutions (4K/60 4:2:0 HDR at 24FPS) as well as supporting all audio formats, up to and including Dolby Atmos and DTS:X

An integrated system of IR blasters and receiver dongles allows for full control over all the hub-connected HDMI sources and all screens at all locations - great for universal remotes and other control systems*.

*ready-made drivers included for all major control systems free of charge.

HDCP 2.2 support. 2-year standard warranty.

HDBaseT Wiring Guidance

HDanywhere video distribution systems require a single network cable to be run from each HDTV location, back to a central point. Some single wire systems use HDBaseT technology to transmit over 1 x Cat5e/6/7 cable up to a 100 Metre distance.

This article is designed to give you a good overview of the standard of wiring needed for a HDBaseT system. 

What is HDBaseT?

HDBaseT is a transmission technology widely used for whole-home and commercial distribution of uncompressed HD multimedia content. The cornerstone of HDBaseT technology is 5Play™, a feature set made up of five key things that are sent over a single Cat cable:

  • Uncompressed high-definition (HD/1080p) and 3D video, plus 4K resolutions
  • Lossless digital audio formats 7.1 and beyond
  • High-speed Ethernet 100BaseT scaling up to Gigabit
  • 100w power over HDBaseT (PoH) up to 100m
  • Various backward + forward control signals (IR, USB, RS232)
What is the best type of cable to use?

Currently you can use Cat5e, Cat6, Cat6e, Cat6a, Cat7 or Cat7a with HDanywhere HDBaseT-based products. The baseline cable standard for HDanywhere systems is Cat5e. Slightly greater distances can be achieved by using Cat6, or slightly better still with the Cat7, which have thicker copper cores for easier signal transfer.

DO NOT USE COPPER CLAD ALUMINIUM (CCA) Cat 5/6/7 CABLE FOR HDBASET PRODUCTS. 

Whichever network cable type you choose, ensure that the main wiring architecture is ‘solid core’, not stranded ‘patch’ cabling. Patch cabling can be used for the last few metres of a run (say from a wallplate) but should be avoided over the longer runs as signal transfer over stranded cores is heavily reduced.

The use of pre-made leads is not recommended unless you can be absolutely sure of their construction credentials (i.e. solid core 568B)

  • Shielded cables

Unlike other systems, shielded FTP cable is not a stipulation. If however you preferred this type of cable please ensure compatible shielded accessories are used. Failure to terminate cable screen at all points can induce interference rather than eliminating it.

  • Best Practice

Best practice advice is to always use a straight piece of cable terminated directly at the matrix and the receiver ends.

  • HDBaseT with patch panels & wall plates

If the patch panels are terminated correctly and well, there is minimal loss of distance with HDBaseT.

The use of wallplates and patch panels always has the potential to cause increased resistance on the cable, introducing ‘pinch points’ for signal transmission and could reduce advertised transmission lengths.

TIP – instead of using RJ45 wallplates, use brush plates instead to maintain the neat finish. A search for “brush plates” will yield many results.

  • Can I use HDBaseT Extenders over PowerLine?

HDBaseT is not a signal type that can travel over powerline/homeplug network extension systems.

  • Connection termination

Terminate the cabling using RJ45 connectors to the 568B wiring standard (shown below).

  • General Troubleshooting Advice

Check that the Cat cable is not bent, knotted, kinked or distorted in any way that would prevent these high frequency signals from traveling throughout the intended length.  

Also, ensure that the cables as far away from potential sources of EMI (Electro-Magnetic Interference) such as electrical cables, transformers, light fixtures, etc.) as possible. Cables should maintain a 300mm separation from power cables.

Try re-terminating the RJ45 connectors again, making absolutely sure that every termination is perfect. Ensure that the RJ45 connectors are fully inserted and click locked into place firmly and securely to ensure perfect connector connection

  • Suggested Installation Do’s and Don’ts

DO maintain the twists of the pairs as close as possible to the point of termination, or no more than 13mm untwisted.

DO make only gradual bends in the cable where necessary to maintain the minimum bend radius of 4 times the cable diameter or approximately 30mm radius.

DO use low-to-moderate force when pulling cable. The standard calls for a maximum of 34 N-m (newton-metres of force).

DO use cable pulling lubricant for cable runs that may otherwise require great force to install. (You will be amazed at what a difference the cable lubricant will make)

DO keep Category cables as far away from potential sources of EMI (Electro-Magnetic Interference) such as electrical cables, transformers, light fixtures, etc.) as possible. Cables should maintain a 300mm separation from power cables.

DON’T allow the cable to be sharply bent, twisted, or kinked at any time. This can cause permanent damage to the geometry of the cable and cause transmission failures.

DON’T over-tighten cable ties or use plastic ties.

DON’T EVER splice or bridge Category cable at any point.

DON’T use excessive force when pulling cable.

DON’T use oil or any other lubricant not specifically designed for Category network cable pulling as they can infiltrate the cable jacket, causing damage to the insulation.

DON’T tie cables to electrical conduits, or lay cables on electrical fixtures

DON’T install cables taut. A good installation should have the cables loose, but never sagging.

DON’T use staples on Category cable that crimp the cable tightly. The common T-18 and T-25 cable staples are not recommended for Category cable. However, the T-59 insulated staple gun is ideal for fastening both Category and fibre optic cabling, as it does not put any excess pressure on the cable.

DON’T use patch cords (cables) or punch down blocks.
