HDBaseTTM Certified Product

*Depends on cable category and quality

The SW4-TPS-TX240 is the high end part of Lightware’s TPS (HDBaseTTM Transmitter ) product family. The device is an all-round video, audio and control transmitter over a single CAT cable up to 170 meter distance for ever-changing environments such as small board rooms and classrooms. The extender was designed to handle HDMI1.4 and DP1.1 digital video signals and analog stereo audio from local inputs or HDMI or DP embedded audio up to 8 Channel PCM or HBR audio. Analog audio is converted to a digital format. The device has a local HDMI video output. The video and the embedded audio of the local output is the same as transmitted via TPS link. The SW4-TPS-TX240 handles HDCP encryption. Using the factory, custom or transparent EDID emulation the user can fix and lock EDID data on each input connector. Advanced EDID Management forces the required resolution from any video source and fixes the output format to conform to the system requirements. The unit offers bi-directional and transparent IR, RS232 and Ethernet transmission. Furthermore the RS232 and IR connection supports command injection. Remote powering is available through the single CAT 5e ... CAT 7 cable, but a local power supply can also be used. All devices can be mounted on a rack shelf or used in standalone formats. Due to Lightware’s attentive design the SW4-TPS-TX240 is compatible with both the HDBaseT extenders and matrix switchers.
