Kramer TP-205A overview

  • 1Description

With its continued stellar reputation in high-definition distribution, Kramer once again raises-the-bar of excellence with its TP-205A 1:5 UXGA, Audio and Line Transmitter and Distribution Amplifier. Designed and built with both professional video facility installation pundits and presentation/multimedia enthusiasts in mind, this unit offers twisted pair (RJ-45) signal conversion from a 15-pin HD UXGA computer graphics video, stereo analog and S/PDIF audio, and RS-232 control signals. It's capable of distributing up to (5) identical twisted pair outputs, and also offers (1) loop-through output for each (UXGA, analog and S/PDIF audio) input signal.

The TP-205A is compatible with HDTV signals, supports resolutions up to WUXGA and 1080p, offers a system range of up to 320' (100 m), and works in conjunction with Kramer's compatible (i.e. TP-122, TP-46) receivers. It's ideal for sending computer graphics video and audio signals over shielded or unshielded twisted pair (STP/UTP) cabling such as standard CAT5 (Ethernet network cable). It features sync polarity settings for improved transmission and twisted pair compatibility - its Power Connect System requires only (1) powered unit in a connected system.

With its superb signal reliability and twisted pair signal technology, the Kramer TP-205A is an ideal solution for long distance computer graphics cable transmission and distribution often required by broadcast studios, educational, security and military installations. In addition, it offers a low-profile design of only 1U that can be mounted in a standard 19" equipment rack with the optional RK-1 adapter.

Note: This unit must be used in conjunction with a compatible receiver (i.e. TP-122, TP-46) to achieve a complete solution.

Twisted Pair (RJ-45) Signal Transmission
Twisted pair (RJ-45) cabling uses 2 conductors (forward and return) that are twisted together in a specific fashion (pitch/twist rate per meter) to cancel out electromagnetic interference and crosstalk (noise) from external sources and its environment. This technology enables a system range up to 320' (100 m) at a maximum resolution up to WUXGA and 1080p HDTV. For best results use Kramer's BC-SXTP Shielded Twisted Pair (STP) skew-free cables for transmitting VGA signals, and BC-STP (STP) non-skew cables for digital signals.
Supports WUXGA and HDTV Signals
Its video transport circuitry supports computer graphics video signals with maximum resolutions up to WUXGA and HDTV/1080p.
Stereo and S/PDIF Audio
This unit will accept unbalanced stereo audio on the 3.5mm mini-jack input and S/PDIF audio on the RCA input connector then simultaneously output the same audio signals to (5) twisted pair outputs and (1) stereo audio and (1) S/PDIF audio output.
RS-232 Control
If an RS-232 control signal is detected from the RS-232 terminal block, this unit will convert the signal and output it on (5) identical twisted pair outputs.
Power Connect System
Within a transmitter/receiver system, only one unit requires power when connected devices are within a 150' (50 m) range of each other; 12VDC power is then distributed through the CAT5 cable.
Sync Polarity Settings
Horizontal and vertical sync polarity switches are provided for improved HDTV compatibility with each CAT5 output.
Large Venue Solution
The TP-205A is an ideal solution for schools, transportation hubs, hospitals, financial institutions, commercial/retail installations, virtually any large venue that requires high-quality, long distance twisted pair video distribution.
Aside from its rugged chassis, (2) units can be rack mounted side-by-side in a 1U rack space with the optional RK-1 adapter.
