Crestron HDMI Transmitter/Receiver Pair Now Shipping

Crestron Delivers a Unique Single-Wire Control and HDMI Extender Solution

ROCKLEIGH, NJ, July 30, 2009 – Crestron has released an HDMI-over-fiber transmitter and receiver pair that provides a remarkably powerful, easy to install solution for extending uncompressed HDMI and IR/RS-232 control signals up to 1000 feet over a single multimode fiber connection. Ideal for commercial and residential retrofits, the HD-TX1-F and HD-RX1-F make it easy to add an HDMI device in an analog room, or extend an HDMI signal and device control from, for example, a home theater to another room or area in or around the home. Now integrators can add a new source or display device with ease, even after a project has been completed.

The TX1-F and RX1-F enable a source or display device to be located remotely from the central equipment. Components such as Crestron HDMI switchers (HD-MD8x1 and HD-MD8x2) or Adagio® Media System (AMS) can be installed in the central rack and feed a display device or receive a signal from a computer or disc player up to 1000 feet away. The TX1-F and RX1-F can also connect two HDMI switchers in different parts of a building, allowing signals from one to be shared with the other.

The TX1-F and RX1-F extend uncompressed digital video, audio, and control signals; support HDMI 1.3a with Deep Color and 7.1 channel HD lossless audio; pass EDID, CEC, and HDCP, and handle resolutions up to 1920×1200 and 1080p60. Using Crestron adapters, these products are also compatible with DisplayPort multimode or DVI devices. No programming or configuration is needed to implement the pair, and a 12VDC power pack is included. Built-in universal IR repeaters have a range of up to 192kHz, and the bidirectional RS-232 extenders reach up to 115k Baud.

Three choices of Crestron CresFiber™ pre-terminated multimode fiber cables will be available soon, simplifying installation even further: standard in-wall; armored in-wall (for more rugged environments), and transparent “fishing wire? fiber for virtually invisible outside-the-wall cable runs.
