The new UMX-TPS product family, containing HDBaseT extenders, wall and floor plates, has been introduced by Lightware. Aimed at environments such as small boardrooms and classrooms, these devices transmit universal video at a resolution up to 4K, audio and control up to 180 metre distance over a single Cat cable.
At the higher end of the scale, the UMX-TPS-TX140 extender was designed to handle digital and analogue video and audio signals, such as VGA, YPrPb, HDMI1.4 and DP 1.1 with analogue stereo audio from local inputs or embedded 7.1 HBR audio.
Analogue signals (both audio and video) are converted to a digital format and can be transmitted separately from each other. All UMX-TPS products handle 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 conforming to the system requirements. The unit offers bi-directional and transparent IR, RS232 and Ethernet transmission.
The IR and RS232 connection supports command injection, allowing it to send any IR or RS232 control command directly from the LAN connection. Remote power is available through the single Cat cable, but local power supply can also be used.
All devices can be mounted on a rack shelf or used standalone. The UMX-TPS-TX140 is compatible with both the HDBaseT extenders and matrix switchers.
