LIGHTWARE EXTENDERS — AV.technology
Lightware Visual Engineering has begun shipping its UMX-TPS product family, featuring HDBaseT extenders with stand-alone, under desk mount and wall plate models. These devices transmit digital video at resolutions up to 4K, audio and control signals up to 170 meters over just one CAT cable. The UMX-TPS-TX140 extender transmission unit can connect to a single receiver or any of Lightware’s matrix switchers via an HDBaseT board. The extender features VGA, HDMI, DisplayPort DVI-I inputs with a single HDBaseT output for a 4×1 video switch combined with signal extender. Converted analogue audio and video is transmitted on the same CAT cable along with remote power, Ethernet and RS232. All UMX-TPS products handle HDCP encryption. Using the factory, custom or transparent EDID emulation, users 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.
