MX-TPS2-OB is an 8 channel twisted pair output board which provides HDMI 1.4, audio, Ethernet and RS-232 transmission on a single CAT5/6/7 cable up to 100m in HDBaseTTM and 170m distance in Long reach mode (maximal resolution is Full HD 1080p in Long reach mode).
Resolutions up to 4K and 48-bit color depth are handled with all standard audio formats as well as 120Hz 3D signals. The board offers bi-directional RS-232 and Ethernet transmission (each board has a 10/100 uplink connector for the Ethernet network connection) and remote powering option for the TPS extenders available with the PoE add-on. The output board is available with audio add-ons: digital S/PDIF or analog stereo connectors are available for advanced audio functions (HDMI embedded audio signals are managed by the board).
The MX-TPS2-OB without the digital or analog audio option also handles HDMI embedded audio. The board is compatible with deep color, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD audio and features PCM audio sample rate conversion. Advanced professional functions such as HDCP enable/ disable mode, Pixel Accurate Reclocking, Advanced EDID Management and Frame Detector are also integrated.

  • Bi-directional configurable analog stereo port with 5-pole Phoenix connector
  • Stereo PCM audio up to 96 kHz can be de-embedded from the HDMI signals
  • Digitized audio (PCM 48 kHz) can be embedded (or replaced) to the HDMI signal
  • Volume, gain control
  • PoE compatible
  • Remote powering on/off switching
  • Status feedback
