What is a HDMI Extender?
A HDMI Extender allows to increase the length of HDMI cable used in your theater system. It is especially useful in DLP projector systems where the source and projector are far apart. The unique circuitry automatically provides compensation for DVI, HDMI cables by equalization, buffering, and de-jittering the TMDS signals which cover long cable runs.

Where should I place the HDMI Extender?
It should be placed as close to the Projector or Monitor as possible to realize its full capability. In other words, the HDMI Extender should be placed so that the longer cable is at the HDMI input because it can boost a less-corrupted signal, thus ensuring that the quality at the output end is high. If you put it at the projector, all the errors will be in there already, so it won't do any good.
