Kramer Debuts TP-789R Receiver for 4K HDBaseT

Kramer Electronics’ TP-789R is an HDBaseT receiver for 4K@60Hz (4:2:0) HDMI, RS232 and IR signals and two-way powering over twisted pair. The receiver extends video signals to up to 40 meters (130 feet) over Kramer copper cables at up to 4K@60Hz (4:2:0) 24bpp video resolution.

The TP-789R receiver either provides power over the copper extension cable to a PoE (Power over Ethernet) acceptor device such as a PoE wall plate or accepts PoE through the extension cable from a PoE provider remote device, as auto-sensed by the receiver. The TP-789R also includes multi-channel audio extension with up to 32 channels of digital stereo uncompressed signals for supporting studio-grade surround sound and bidirectional RS232 extension allowing data transmission and device control.
