kramer wp 789r

Kramer Electronics’ WP−789R is an HDBaseT wall−plate receiver for 4K@60Hz (4:2:0) HDMI and HDCP 2.2 signals over twisted pair. It converts the transmitted HDBaseT signal into an HDMI signal. The wall plate extends video signals up to 130 feet (40 meters) over Kramer shielded twisted pair cables at 4K@60Hz (4:2:0) 24-bit-per-pixel video resolution and provides even further reach at lower HD video resolutions.

The WP-789R can be powered through PoE (Power over Ethernet) over the twisted pair cable. The wall-plate auto–senses the extension line PoE status and accepts power from a remote PoE provider such as a PoE matrix, with the option of operating directly with the supplied power adapter.

The WP-789R is designed for in–wall behind a wall–mounted flat panel display and supports HDCP 2.2, deep color, x.v.Color, lip sync, HDMI uncompressed audio channels, Dolby TrueHD, DTS–HD, 2K, 4K, and 3D as specified in HDMI 2.0.

The WP-789R lists for $395.
