Extron has told rAVe that four of its DTP twisted pair transmitters now feature analog stereo audio embedding. These include the DTP T HWP 232 D and DTP T HWP 332 D two-input, Decora-style transmitters for HDMI, as well as the DTP T UWP 232 D and DTP T UWP 332 D two-input, Decora-style transmitters for HDMI and VGA. The added capability of embedding stereo analog audio onto the digital video output signal for transport over DTP streamlines integration by eliminating the need for a separate audio connection at the receiver. The transmitters support signal extension up to 230 feet (70 meters) or 330 feet (100 meters) over a shielded CATx cable. A free firmware upgrade allows you to take advantage of this new feature in existing DTP Systems deploying these transmitters.
Extron says the DTP Systems product family is the industry’s most comprehensive integration platform for small to medium-sized AV systems. This family includes numerous different extender models in a wide variety of form factors and video formats, plus a broad offering of distribution amplifiers, switchers, and matrix switchers with essential AV signal processing and control features.
