Extron launches 4K DTP twisted pair extenders for DisplayPort
Extron has announced the immediate availability of the DTP DP 4K 230 and DTP DP 4K 330, transmitters and receivers for sending DisplayPort, audio, as well as bidirectional RS-232 and IR signals over a shielded CATx shielded twisted pair cable.
They extend signals up to 230 feet (70 metres) or 330 feet (100 metres), and support video signals at resolutions up to 4K.
The DTP DP 4K 230 and DTP DP 4K 330 also accept analog stereo audio signals for simultaneous transmission over the same shielded twisted pair cable.
The enclosure size and remote power capability make the DTP DP 4K models suitable for placement in lecterns, beneath tables, behind flat-panel displays, or wherever needed to meet application requirements.
The DTP DP 4K 230 and DTP DP 4K 330 streamline integration by supporting bidirectional RS-232 and IR pass-through for AV device control at remote locations. A single external power supply can be used to remotely power the transmitter or receiver over the twisted pair cable. DTP DP 4K receiver models support Type 2 dual-mode DisplayPort, which allows source signals to be sent to a 4K-capable HDMI or DVI device with an appropriate adapter.
DTP DP 4K transmitter models offer an HDBaseT output mode that provides the additional integration convenience of a twisted pair output that can send video and embedded audio, plus bidirectional control signals to any HDBaseT-enabled display.
