The CrystalView HDT extends digital video and audio, analog video and audio, USB keyboard and mouse, and infrared remote controllers.

The system utilizes HDBaseT for the transmission of uncompressed high-definition audio and video, USB keyboard and mouse, and infrared remote controller signals over a single standard CATx cable at distances of 330 feet (100 meters).

CrystalView HDBase T employs Power-over-Cable, (POC) technology to supply power to the remote receivers through the CATx link. This eliminates the need for power cables and supplies at receiver locations.

The transmitter chassis can house up to six HDMI or VGA transmitter cards, each supplying power and high definition signals to a remote receiver.

VGA cards convert incoming analog video and audio signals to HDMI. DVI inputs are plugged in to the HDMI cards using a DVI to HDMI adapter. All transmitter cards have local HDMI outputs. A single port TX/RX extender pair is also available (non-POC)

Video sources can be controlled with a USB keyboard and mouse, with HID-USB touchscreens, a connected laptop's keyboard and mouse, or by Infrared Remote Controllers. HDMI Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD audio pass-through.
