Hi guys,


I need to do an AV distribution, including HD signals. I tend to use Netstreams, but in this case I would have to put Panorama or the new Medialinx AV with it.


The other scenario is a system 12 from Elan. Audio Authority is out too(never used it).


My question to you guys is if anybody has compared the visual results of the component signal over cat5, with the original signal. Last time I checked, the difference was visible.


Any comments?

You may be rather pleasantly surprised at the quality you can achieve with Panorama. The only thing I have seen that looks better over a long distance is with IP Video (you need a pretty pristine signal source to catch any differences between the two).

Do you mean that the Medialinx A/V is the best way to go?

How far off would I be if I decide to go the Panorama way?

These two products have a big difference in price. I am just wondering in terms of quality, how big would the difference be?


Elan has some extenders too.

This cat5 business could be a hard choice sometimes

It looks like you want a single vendor solution, but if you're looking for other recommendations, I did a system using Neothings matrix switch and then I used Intelix baluns on each end.


I couldn't tell a difference between direct feed and the feed over Cat5...
