Extron Introduces Long Distance DVI Twisted Pair Extender

The compact enclosure and remote power capability make the DTP DVI 330 ideal for extending DVI-D, audio, and bidirectional control in space-challenged environments.

Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce the DTP DVI 330, a transmitter and receiver set for long distance transmission of DVI-D video, audio, and bidirectional RS-232 and IR control signals up to 330 feet (100 meters) over a single CATx cable. The extender provides an effective means for extending single link DVI-D or HDMI signals. In addition, the DTP DVI 330 accepts analog stereo audio signals and digitizes them for simultaneous transmission over the same twisted pair cable. The transmitter is equipped with a buffered DVI loop-through output to support a local computer monitor. The compact enclosure and remote power capability make the DTP DVI 330 ideal for extending DVI-D, audio, and bidirectional control in space-challenged environments.

"The DTP DVI 330 provides a convenient way to overcome distance challenges in applications, so that sources and devices can be added precisely where you need them," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "This extender not only ensures optimal signal quality and integrity over long distances, it also allows you to take advantage of the benefits of twisted pair."

The DTP DVI 330 supports computer-video to 1920×1200, including HDTV 1080p/60 Deep Color and 2K, and is fully compatible with HDMI signals when used with the appropriate DVI-HDMI adapters from Extron. The extender can transmit HDMI signals, supporting Deep Color up to 12-bit, CEC, and embedded HD lossless audio formats. It also allows a direct connection from devices with an analog stereo audio output, such as desktop computers or laptops, and provides balanced and unbalanced audio output from the receiver.

In addition, the extender continuously maintains DDC communication of EDID and HDCP between a source and display for reliable operation, ensuring direct compatibility and optimal signal transmission between devices. The DTP DVI 330 is compatible with CAT 5e, CAT 6, CAT 7, and Extron XTP DTP 24 twisted pair cable, and can be used as a point-to-point solution or integrated within DVI switching and distribution environments to extend inputs or outputs to remote locations. For added flexibility, either the transmitter or receiver can be powered over the original twisted pair cable, allowing both devices to share one external power supply.
