The Kramer TP-581T Twisted Pair Transmitter allows you to transmit HDMI, Ethernet 100BaseT, RS-232 and IR input signals. It takes a single HDMI input, and converts it with the Ethernet 100BaseT, RS-232 and IR input signals to a twisted pair signal. The device offers a maximum data transfer rate of up to 2.25 Gbps over a distance of up to 330’ (100m). Shielded twisted pair (STP) cables such as Kramer's BC-DGKat524, BC-DGKat623, or BC-DGKat723 cables can be used for optimum performance.
The TP-581T Twisted Pair Transmitter supports HDMI v.1.4 with Deep Color, x.v.Color, Lip Sync, HDMI Uncompressed Audio Channels, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD, CEC, and 3D Pass-through. EDID PassThru feature helps in passing EDID/HDCP signals from the source to the display. The Ethernet interface uses 100BaseT connectivity, which features a high-data transfer rate for efficient transfer of data, video signals, etc.
A bidirectional RS-232 interface allows commands and data flow in both directions, thus allowing status requests and control of the destination unit. In addition, the device can be controlled via front panel buttons. An LED indicator displays input selection, output, link and power. Using an optional RK-T2B rack adaptor, you can mount 2 units side-by-side in a 1U rack space. Being HDCP compliant and HDTV compatible, the TP-581T Twisted Pair Transmitter is suitable for home theater, presentation, multimedia, and staging applications.
