Extron Electronics recently announced the availability of the DTP T DWP 4K D series
of two input Decora®-style transmitters for sending DisplayPort or HDMI, audio,
and control over a shielded CATx cable to Extron DTP-enabled products. The DTP T
DWP 4K 232 D extends signals up to 230 feet (70 meters), while the DTP T DWP 4K
332 D extends signals up to 330 feet (100 meters). Both DTP T DWP 4K D models
provide one HDMI input, one DisplayPort input, and independent analog stereo audio
connections. They support video signals at resolutions up to 4K, including
2560×1600 and 1080p/60 Deep Colour. Analog stereo audio embedding and RS-232
remote control facilitate integration in demanding professional environments.
Integrator-friendly features include EDID Minder, auto-switching between inputs,
remote power capability, and bidirectional RS-232 and IR pass-through for remote
AV device control. The wall-mountable design provides the convenience of placing
input connections precisely where they are needed.
“These 4K DTP transmitters enable system designers and integrators to take
advantage of DisplayPort technology alongside HDMI sources in a range of AV
environments,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron.
“Features such as automatic switching and audio embedding simplify designs and
provide ease of use.”
The DTP T DWP 4K 232 D and DTP T DWP 4K 332 D help ensure optimal system
performance by automatically adjusting colour bit depth based on the display EDID,
preventing colour compatibility conflicts between the source and display. In addition
to RS-232 input selection, these transmitters can be set up to automatically switch
when they detect a source, making them ideal for automatic routing and unattended
operation. They also feature independent connections for embedding stereo analog
audio onto the DTP video output signal. For added installation flexibility, the DTP T
DWP 4K D transmitters can be remotely powered by Extron DTP-enabled products
over the twisted pair cable. They offer an HDBaseT output mode that provides the
additional integration convenience of a twisted pair output that is compatible with
any HDBaseT-enabled display.
