Kramer Intros 4K Tx and Rx in DGKat 2.0

Kramer Electronics launched DGKat 2.0 at ISE 2018. DGKat 2.0 is featured in the Kramer PT-871/872 transmitter and receiver pair and supports 4K HDR, HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 signals and two-way powering over twisted pair. This compact extension solution delivers video signals up to 40 meters (130 feet) over Kramer CAT copper cables at up to 4K@60Hz (4:4:4) at 8-bit color video resolution. They support deep color, x.v.Color, lip sync, HDMI uncompressed audio channels, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD, 2K, 4K and 3D. EDID signals are passed through from the source to the display.

Both the transmitter and receiver only need a single cable for both the signal and the power. PT-871/872 also boast Kramer Intelligent EDID Processing ensuring plug and play operation for the HDMI source and display systems with no need for additional configuration. Status LED indicators for HDMI and DGKat 2.0 ports facilitate easy local maintenance and troubleshooting. The pair is highly durable as the devices’ temperature remains low to withstand extreme weather conditions.
