PT-571/PT-572 Move HDMI Signals Long Distances over Twisted Pair Cables
 
Hampton, New Jersey – May 13, 2010 – Kramer Electronics is pleased to announce the introduction of the PT-571 and PT-572 twisted pair transmitter and receiver for HDMI signals.  The PT-571 and PT-572 can transmit HDMI signals directly over a single CAT 5/6 cable (shielded twisted pair cables are recommended). The PT-571 and PT-572 offer an extremely compact and inexpensive solution for HDMI signal transmission over long distances and are ideal for any application where long distance signal distribution is required.
 
The PT-571 converts an HDMI signal into a signal that can be run over shielded twisted pair CAT 5/6 cables. An HDMI signal can be transmitted up to 295ft. (90 meters) at 1080i resolution and up to 98ft. (30 meters) at 1080p resolution when using Kramer shielded BC-DGKat524 cable. When using Kramer BC-DGKat623 cable the 1080p distance capability increases to 230ft. (70 meters).   The PT-572 receiver then converts the signal back to an HDMI signal. The units offer up to 1.65Gbps bandwidth and are HDCP compliant and HDTV compatible.

 

The PT-571 and PT-572 each incorporate a LED status light which lights red when receiving power only, orange when input and power are attached, and yellow when both an active input and output are attached.   The PT-571 and PT-572 pass the EDID, HPD and CEC signals from the source to the display device over the CAT 5/6 cable together with the HDMI signal.  The PT-571 employs Kramer’s Power Connect™ feature where a single connection to the transmitter powers both units.  The required 12V DC is transmitted through the CAT 5/6 cable with the other signals to the receiver.
 
The PT-571 and PT-572 are housed in ultra-compact Pico TOOLS™ enclosures. They carry a list price in the United States of $225 per unit and are currently in stock and available from Kramer Electronics sales companies around the world.  Complete product information can be found at www.kramerus.com.
