Model 1171 incorporates the key signal paths necessary for premium audio and video entertainment, plus an IR pathway for easy remote control of AV components. All this over just two inexpensive, easy to install, Cat 5 cables.

  • One input, six Cat 5 wallplate/receiver outputs (receivers sold separately)
  • Up to 1080p component video (YPbPr)
  • Distributes HDTV signals up to 1,000 feet from the source
  • Coaxial digital and stereo analog audio
  • Infrared remote jack for IR pathway
  • Wallplate/receivers powered through Cat 5 cable

Cat 5 Wallplate/Receiver Options
Choose from three different receiver styles: a single-gang Decora wallplate, a dual-gang stainless steel wallplate, and a breakout box. Wallplates are easy to install in a standard electrical box, while the breakout box can be mounted on any flat surface. Two Cat 5 cables deliver component video, digital audio and analog audio to each receiver. The 3.5mm IR jack provides a convenient pathway for a third party IR remote distribution network over the Cat 5 pathway. Use compatible IR receivers and emitters (see 1171 manual). IR receiver and emitter equipment not included.

See a comparison chart showing the differences between our Cat 5 receivers.

Reliable and Expandable
Our unique cable length compensation allows adjustment for the optimal signal strength at any distance up to 1,000 feet from the source. Like our commercial video distribution products, the 1171 provides reliable ground isolation, preventing hum bars and other artifacts associated with ground loops.

It's easy to expand a 1171 System to any size. Simply stack 1170 Expanders with the 1171 MultiDriver and connect additional Wallplates. Up to 48 Wallplates may be served in this way. See the PDF Installation Manual for details.

To the Home Owner
While the 1171 is ideal for new construction or an existing home, it does require special knowledge and tools to install. We suggest you contact a local custom home installation specialist. Many installation specialists are members of the Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association and can be located through the CEDIA website.
