Extron Debuts Long-Distance DVI Over CATx Transmitter

extron-dtpdvi330-0513Extron just debuted the DTP DVI 330, a transmitter and receiver set for long distance transmission of DVI-D video, audio and bidirectional RS232 and IR control signals up to 330 feet (100 meters) over a single CATx cable. The extender provides an effective means for extending single link DVI-D or HDMI signals. In addition, the DTP DVI 330 accepts analog stereo audio signals and digitizes them for simultaneous transmission over the same twisted pair cable. The transmitter is equipped with a buffered DVI loop-through output to support a local computer monitor.

Extron says the DTP DVI 330 supports computer-video to 1920×1200, including HDTV 1080p/60 Deep Color and 2K (it’s refreshing to see a manufacturer not make a 4K claim – like many, as of late, who’ve jumped on the 4K bandwagon just for marketing) and is fully compatible with HDMI signals when used with the appropriate DVI-HDMI adapters from Extron. The extender can transmit HDMI signals, supporting Deep Color up to 12-bit, CEC and embedded HD lossless audio formats. It also allows a direct connection from devices with an analog stereo audio output, such as desktop computers or laptops and provides balanced and unbalanced audio output from the receiver.

In addition, the extender continuously maintains DDC communication of EDID and HDCP between a source and display for reliable operation, ensuring direct compatibility and optimal signal transmission between devices. The DTP DVI 330 is compatible with Cat5e, Cat6, Cat7 and Extron XTP DTP 24 twisted pair cable, and can be used as a point-to-point solution or integrated within DVI switching and distribution environments to extend inputs or outputs to remote locations. For added flexibility, either the transmitter or receiver can be powered over the original twisted pair cable, allowing both devices to share one external power supply.
