Lightware WP-HDMI-TPS-RX97


Wallplate (WP) TPS Extender for Single CATx Cable with PoE

WP-HDMI-TPS-RX97 series twisted pair HDBaseT™ extenders provide extension of uncompressed 4K/UHD video with embedded audio (up to eight channel PCM or HBR audio) for long distances over a single CATx cable.


He WP-HDMI-TPS-RX97 series twisted pair HDBaseT™ compatible extenders provide extension of uncompressed 4K/UHD video with embedded audio (up to eight channel PCM or HBR audio) for long distances over a single CATx cable. The unit offers bi-directional RS-232, IR, and Ethernet pass-through on the same CATx cable that carries the video signal. The TPS extenders support full HDCP and EDID compliance and work on all standard AV resolutions up to 4K and 48-bit color depth, also handling all standard audio formats and as well as 120 Hz 3D signals. PoE 48V remote powering is available through a single CATx cable, but a local power supply can also be used.

The auto-operation mode allows the device to detect the far-end extender’s mode and adopt to it. If the far-end device is in Auto Mode or it is a third-party HDBaseT™ device the link will be set to HDBaseT™ mode. If the far device is in forced Long Reach Mode then the auto-operation will set the link to Long Reach Mode. The ‘IR OUT’ can operate in either Wired (unmodulated) or Emitter (modulated) mode.

The WP-HDMI-TPS-TX97 and WP-HDMI-TPS-RX97 are compatible with HDBaseT™ extenders and matrix switchers.
