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 Extron DTP 230-enabled products. 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 Tx supports pass through analog stereo audio signals for simultaneous transmission over the same twisted pair cable. It is capable of sending 1080p/60 Deep Color, 1920x1200, and 2K signals up to 230 feet (70 meters). The compact enclosure size and remote power capability make the DTP HDMI 230 Tx ideal for discreet placement in lecterns, beneath tables, or wherever needed to meet application requirements.
The HDCP-compliant DTP HDMI 230 Tx enables the reliable transmission of HDMI signals, supporting Deep Color up to 12-bit, CEC pass-through, and embedded HD lossless audio formats. 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 DTP HDMI 230 Tx also supports a direct pass through connection for stereo analog audio to a DTP 230-enabled matrix switcher, switcher, or signal processor. The analog stereo audio signal is sent over the same twisted pair cable as the HDMI and control signals, eliminating the need for a separate cable run to support analog audio at the DTP 230-enabled product.
The twisted pair transmitter provides other convenient, integrator-friendly features designed to help simplify installation. The DTP HDMI 230 Tx supports simultaneous transmission of bidirectional RS-232 and IR signals from a control system for AV device control. Also, the transmitter can be remotely powered over the twisted pair cable by a DTP 230-enabled product, allowing both devices to share one power supply.
The DTP HDMI 230 Tx can be integrated with an Extron DTP CrossPoint 84 Presentation Matrix Switcher, or other DTP 230-enabled products to support inputs at remote locations. The transmitter is housed in a 1" (2.5 cm) high, quarter rack width metal enclosure. The low profile design of the DTP HDMI 230 Tx allows for discreet placement in lecterns and beneath tables.
Extron recommends Extron-certified XTP DTP 24 shielded twisted pair cable, shielded RJ-45 plugs, jacks, and couplers engineered for optimum signal transmission with Extron DTP Series products. The XTP DTP 24 cable is certified to 475 MHz, and utilizes a SF/UTP design with four unshielded 24 AWG twisted pair conductors inside an overall braid and foil shield for superior performance and noise immunity.
