Highlighted features

  • Bi-directional RS-232 extension (pass-through)
  • Extends DVI or HDMI 1.3 signals over CAT5/6/7 cable
  • Advanced EDID Management in transmitter

The Lightware DVI-HDCP-TP and HDMI-TP 100R series deep color extenders can transmit HDMI or DVI-D signals over two CAT5, CAT6 or CAT7 cables. They fully support HDMI 1.3a signals with or without HDCP encryption. The DVI-HDCP-TP series extenders feature screw-locking DVI connectors to ensure reliable operation in professional environments, instead of the easily unpluggable HDMI connectors while keeping the benefits of the HDMI 1.3a interface with audio.

Cross compatibility between all the devices in the product series is ensured thanks to Lightware’s attentive design. Any transmitter can be paired with any receiver without restriction. With Lightware’s hybrid modular matrix concept, it is even possible to connect an extender directly to the matrix router using an MX-HDMI-TP series input or output board (MX-HDMI-TP-IB or MX-HDMI-TP-OB).

Power source can be set by jumper for local supply with plug-in adapter, or for remote supply through TP CATx cable. All devices can be mounted on rack shelf, or used standalone. Supporting HDMI1.3 standard, these products can be seamlessly connected to Blu-Ray players, set top boxes, AV receivers or even Apple TV.

Advanced EDID Management – the well-known Lightware technology – is built in the 100 series transmitters. Using the Factory, Custom or Transparent EDID emulation the user can fix and lock EDID data on the transmitter’s input connector. Advanced EDID Management eliminates noise and bit errors on DDC lines and fixes the resolution, video- and audio parameters emulated to the source.

TMDS reclocking: unique to Lightware 100 series twisted pair receivers we provide this professional feature. The circuitry cleans the signal from noise and jitter ensuring a stable recovered digital signal at outputs with sharp transitions and accurate timing.

Equalization on receiver’s RJ45 input connectors is available for automatic adaptive or fine tunable manual operation. In manual mode the 25 turn trimpot allows the most accurate setting between 0 and 40dB values which helps tweaking the given cable loss even on highest 1080p resolution.
