Kramer Intros Compact Line Transmitter/Receiver Set for DVI Signals

kramer-PT-572HDCP-DVI-Over-Twisted-Pair-Receiver-0710Kramer Electronics has announced the introduction of the PT-571HDCP and PT-572HDCP twisted pair transmitter and receiver for DVI signals.  The PT-571HDCP and PT-572HDCP can transmit DVI signals directly over a twisted pair cable (shielded twisted pair cables are recommended).  The PT-571HDCP and PT-572HDCP offer a compact and inexpensive solution for DVI signal transmission over long distances and are ideal for any application where long distance signal distribution is required.
The PT-571HDCP converts a DVI signal into a signal that can be run over shielded twisted pair cables.  The PT-572HDCP receiver then converts the signal back to a DVI signal.  Both units feature a bandwidth of up to 1.65Gbps and are HDCP-compliant and HDTV-compatible.

The company tested the set using Kramer cables and said a DVI signal can be transmitted up to 295 feet (90 meters) at SXGA resolution and up to 98 feet (30 meters) at UXGA resolution when using Kramer’s shielded BC-DGKat524 cable.  Kramer’s shielded BC-DGKat623 cable can extend the range for UXGA to 230 feet (70 meters) and the soon to be introduced Kramer shielded BC-DGKat7a23 cable will extend the range to 265 feet (80 meters) for UXGA signals.

The PT-571HDCP and PT-572HDCP use a multicolored status LED that illuminates red when receiving power only, orange when an input signal (on the PT-571HDCP) or output signal (on the PT-572HDCP) and power are attached, and yellow when both an active input and output are attached.   The PT-571HDCP and PT-572HDCP pass the EDID and HPD signals from the source to the display device over the twisted pair cable together with the DVI signal.  The PT-571HDCP employs Kramer’s Power Connect™ feature where a single connection to the transmitter powers both units.  The required 12V DC is transmitted through the twisted pair cable, along with the other signals, to the receiver.
