Extron Electronics introduces the DTP HDMI 330, a transmitter and receiver set for long-distance transmission of high definition multimedia interface audio, bidirectional RS-232 and infrared control signals up to 330 feet over a single CATx cable.
The high bandwidth digital content protection-compliant extender provides an effective means for extending HDMI with embedded multi-channel audio, Extron says.
The DTP HDMI 330 also accepts analog stereo audio signals and digitizes them for simultaneous transmission over a twisted pair cable. The compact enclosure sizes and remote power capability make the DTP HDMI 330 ideal for space-challenged environments, the company says.
Audiovisual system designers and integrators often need to send digital video, audio and control signals over long distances, says Casey Hall, Extron’s vice president of sales and marketing. “The DTP HDMI 330 achieves this with the use of a single twisted pair cable, allowing for flexible installation while also ensuring optimal signal quality,” the company says.
This extender streamlines integration with analog and digital audio signals, allowing a direct analog audio connection from devices with stereo output and provides both balanced and unbalanced audio output from the receiver, according to Extron.
Additionally, the SET maintains digital direct control communication of extended display identification data and HDCP between a source and display, ensuring compatibility and optimal signal transmission.
The DTP HDMI 330 is compatible with CAT 5e, CAT 6, and CAT 7 twisted pair cable, and can be used as a point-to-point solution or integrated with an HDMI matrix switcher to extend inputs or outputs to remote locations, the company says. The unit also supports signal resolutions up to 1080p/60 and 1920x1200, and its HDMI specification features include data rates up to 6.75 Gbps, Deep Color up to 12-bit, 3D, high definition lossless audio formats, and CEC. Either the transmitter or receiver can be powered over the original twisted pair cable, thus sharing an external power supply.
