Lightware and Semtech join forces to streamline AV networking for meeting spaces, auditoriums and classrooms

Lightware is joining forces with Semtech, a supplier of analogue and mixed-signal semiconductors, to integrate Lightware’s TPX extender devices with Semtech’s AVXT technology for collaboration in classrooms, auditoriums and meeting spaces.

Lightware TPX extenders allow for HDMI 2.0 signal management over a single CATx cable with HDCP 2.3 and Dolby Vision support, and also provide compatibility with Software Defined Video over Ethernet (SDVoE) endpoints connected point-to-point.

The next-generation TPX extenders are the first AVXT-based devices from Lightware that extend signals for plug-and-play functionality.

Additionally, the devices extend signals over a single CATx cable (up to 100 metres), allow fan-less, passive cooling and include Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) management. By using Semtech's AVXT technology, the extenders are also able to output audio on the transmitter side to send it directly to audio systems and also support bidirectional remote powering.
