Extron Now Shipping Economical Wall Mount HDMI Twisted Pair Extender

Extron Electronics is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the DTP HDMI 230 D, a Decora®-style transmitter and receiver set for transmission of HDMI, audio, and bidirectional RS-232 and IR control signals up to 230 feet (70 meters) over a single CATx cable. The HDCP-compliant extender provides an economical and effective means for extending HDMI with embedded multi-channel audio from HDMI-equipped devices. In addition, the DTP HDMI 230 D accepts analog stereo audio signals and digitizes them for simultaneous transmission over the same twisted pair cable. The wall-mountable design and remote power capability make the DTP HDMI 230 D ideal for extending HDMI, audio, and bidirectional control while offering aesthetically pleasing integration in space-challenged environments.

“AV system designers need the flexibility be able to place input and output connection points right where they are needed,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. “The DTP HDMI 230 D achieves this with a wall-mountable design, allowing for convenient installation while also sending HDMI video, audio, and bidirectional control signals over a single twisted pair cable and ensuring optimal signal quality.”

This extender streamlines integration with analog and digital audio signals. It allows a direct analog audio connection from devices with stereo output, such as desktop computers or laptops, and provides balanced and unbalanced audio output from the receiver. Additionally, the DTP HDMI 230 D 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 HDMI 230 D is compatible with CAT 5e, CAT 6, and CAT 7 twisted pair cable, and can be used as a point-to-point solution or integrated with an HDMI matrix switcher to extend inputs or outputs to remote locations. It supports signal resolutions up to 1920×1200, including HDTV 1080p/60 and 2K, and supports HDMI specification features including data rates up to 6.75 Gbps, Deep Color up to 12-bit, 3D, HD lossless audio formats, and CEC. 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. Both devices are available separately, and may be mixed and matched with the desktop DTP HDMI 230 transmitter or receiver to suit the installation requirements of a specific application.
