Extron Introduces DTP Twisted Pair Extenders for DisplayPort
Extron’s new DTP DP 230 and DTP DP 330 are transmitter and receiver sets for transmission of DisplayPort, audio and bidirectional RS232 and IR signals over a shielded CATx shielded twisted pair cable. The DTP DP 230 extends signals up to 230 feet (70 meters), while the DTP DP 330 extends signals up to 330 feet (100 meters). Both DTP DP models are specifically designed to incorporate higher resolution DisplayPort (Mac computers, etc) with embedded audio into Extron DTP Systems. They support computer-video to 2560×1600, 1080p/60 Deep Color and 4K resolutions. The DTP DP 230 and DTP DP 330 also accept analog stereo audio signals for simultaneous transmission over the same shielded twisted pair cable. The compact enclosure size and remote power capability make the DTP DP models ideal for discreet placement in lecterns, beneath tables, behind flat-panel displays, or wherever needed to meet application requirements.
The DTP DP 230 and DTP DP 330 streamline integration by supporting bidirectional RS-232 and IR pass-through for AV device control at remote locations. And, a single external power supply can be used to remotely power the transmitter or receiver over the twisted pair cable. DTP DP receiver models support Type 2 dual-mode DisplayPort, which allows source signals to be sent to a 4K-capable HDMI or DVI device with an appropriate adapter. DTP DP transmitter models offer an HDBaseT output mode that provides the additional integration convenience of a twisted pair output that can send video and embedded audio, plus bidirectional control signals to any HDBaseT-enabled display.
