Kramer launches twisted pair DVI matrix
Kramer Electronics has introduced the VS-88DTP Twisted Pair Matrix Switcher for DVI signals.
The unit reclocks and equalizes the signal, and can route any or all inputs to any or all DGKat twisted pair outputs simultaneously.
The VS-88DTP has a maximum input data rate of 1.65Gbps and is HDTV compatible. The VS-88DTP has eight DVI-D inputs on DVI-I connectors, and eight DGKat twisted pair outputs on RJ-45 connectors. The unit features Kramer’s re-Klocking & Equalization technology, which rebuilds the digital signal to travel longer distances. The VS-88DTP features Kramer’s DGKat Signal Integration technology for converting digital TMDS signals to signals that run over twisted pair cables.
The unit can be controlled via the front-panel touch switches, through its serial RS-232 and RS-485 ports, via Ethernet, or by the included IR remote control. The unit also includes K-Router Windows-based control software, and Windows-based Ethernet Configuration Manager & Virtual Serial Port Manager. The unit has sixteen memory locations to store setups for quick access to the most frequently used configurations. The VS-88DTP also features Kramer’s I-EDIDPro™ Intelligent EDID Processing, an algorithm that ensures "Plug and Play" operation in DVI systems.
The VS-88DTP operates with a worldwide power supply, and is housed in a standard 19" rack mount, with "ears" included.
