Brea, CA (March 23, 2012)—Altinex has debuted its TP115-110/TP115-111 computer/component video + audio UTP transmitter/receiver.
The TP115-110 and TP115-111 are targeted for integrators and AV technology managers looking for a means of distributing computer video and audio signals long distances to reach the presentation display or projector.
Altinex TP115-110 provides transmission of computer video and audio signals over Twisted Pair-type (Cat-5) cable, while the TP115-111 receives computer video and audio signals over twisted pair-type (Cat-5) cable. The units offer video equalization (developed and patented by Altinex) that reportedly facilitates very long cable runs, and a signal-detect feature shows when a signal is present. With the TP115-110 UTP transmitter adjacent to the source PC and the TP115-111 UTP receiver adjacent to the destination display/projector—and the Cat-5 cable spanning the distance between these two units—the computer video and audio signals can, according to the company, travel “impressive distances.”
The TP115-110 transmitter receives the computer’s video output via a 15-pin HD female connector. Stereo audio input is received via a 3.5mm jack and is converted to mono prior to transmission. The transmitter outputs these signals over the Cat-5 cable utilizing an RJ-45 network connector. At the other end of the Cat-5 line, the TP115-111 receiver receives these signals via its RJ-45 network connector and then outputs video via its 15-pin HD female connector while audio is output via a 5-pin terminal block.
Grant Cossey, Altinex vice president of sales, comments, “The TP115-110 and TP115-111 are a compact, value-packed solution for those situations where computer video and audio signals need to travel considerable distance in order to reach the projector or video display. Used together, these units enable one to take advantage of existing Cat-5 cabling infrastructure and easily resolve issues of distance between the source PC and the destination display. This is a terrific means of addressing a very common signal-transport issue.”
