ALTINEX DEBUTS ANYWIRE: VIDEO OVER COPPER
Altinex introduces the Anywire TP315-101 and TP315-102 Transmitter/Receiver System. Anywire facilitates the transmission of live 1080p/60Hz video and computer video signals with synchronised audio over any type of copper wire, including speaker wire, low voltage wires, coaxial wires, and more — making it ideally suited for use in existing structures where running traditional CAT6 lines would be disruptive to a building’s existing architectural aesthetics, and many additional applications.
The TP315-101 HDMI over Anywire transmitter facilitates the transmission of 1080p HDMI signals up to 600 feet using a simple 2-conductor cable. The TP315-102 HDMI over Anywire receiver allows the receipt of 1080p HDMI signals up to 600 feet using a simple 2-conductor cable. A single TP315-101 transmitter is capable of driving up to four TP315-102 receivers using either four individual wire pairs over 600 feet each, or by daisy chaining the receivers.
The Altinex TP315-101 transmitter and TP315-102 receiver create an economical solution for many audiovisual installations. The two-wire solution simplifies installation — integrators need only to route the wires, cut and trim the installation, and connect to the terminals. The unique design of the Anywire video transmission system provides stable video over greater distances than other designs. IR pass-through for receiver side to transmitter side control is provided without corrupting the HDMI signal during transmission of IR signals. Operation does not require any user control or interaction. Simply connect the Anywire input and when the transmitter detects the receiver, the receiver begins video transmission to the display.
Jack Gershfeld, President of Altinex, commented on the company’s new Anywire video transmission system, “Our new Anywire transmitter converts HDMI signals into a serial data stream. This data stream is then encoded for transmission over any copper media—making the entire setup very intuitive to use. Further, the TP315-101 transmitter incorporates a local video output to support a local monitor. The local monitor enables the user on the transmitter side to know what is being presented on the far side of the installation. Equally important, both transmitter and receiver have integrated power supplies and compact form factors so as to be easily hidden.”
