The Extron DTP HDMI 230 Tx is a transmitter for transmission of HDMI, audio, and bidirectional RS-232 and IR signals over a single CATx cable to an Extron DTP 230 receiver. It provides an economical and effective means for extending HDMI with embedded multi-channel audio from HDMI-equipped devices. In addition, the DTP HDMI 230 accepts analog stereo audio signals and digitizes them for simultaneous transmission over the same twisted pair cable. The compact enclosure sizes and remote power capability make the DTP HDMI 230 ideal for extending HDMI, audio, and bidirectional control in space-challenged environments.
The HDCP-compliant DTP HDMI 230 Tx enables the reliable transmission of HDMI signals, supporting Deep Color up to 12-bit, CEC, and embedded HD lossless audio formats. The DTP HDMI 230 Tx streamlines integration with analog and digital audio signals. It allows a direct connection from devices with an analog stereo audio output and provides balanced and unbalanced audio output from the DTP HDMI 230 receiver. In addition, DDC communication of EDID and HDCP is continuously maintained between a source and display, ensuring direct compatibility and optimal signal transmission between devices.
The twisted pair extender provides other convenient, integrator-friendly features designed to help simplify installation. The DTP HDMI 230 supports simultaneous transmission of bidirectional RS-232 and IR signals from a control system, providing remote control to source equipment or remote displays. Also, either device can be remotely powered over the twisted pair cable, allowing both devices to share one external power supply.
The DTP HDMI 230 can be used as a point-to-point solution or integrated with a switching and distribution system to extend inputs or outputs to remote locations. The transmitter and receiver are housed in 1" (2.5 cm) high, quarter rack width metal enclosures. The low profile design of the DTP HDMI 230 allows for discreet placement beneath tables or behind flat-panel displays. Both the DTP HDMI 230 transmitter and receiver may be paired with the DTP HDMI 230 D Decora wallplate transmitter or receiver to suit the installation requirements of a specific application.
