DVI over Twisted Pair Transmitter Over 1 STP Cable
Kramer's PT-571HDCP is a high-performance DGKat twisted-pair transmitter for DVI signals. This transmitter works by converting the DVI signal to twisted pair signal and then sends the signal to the PT-571HDCP+ receiver which converts the twisted pair signal back to a DVI signal. This is both HDTV compatible and HDCP compliant and has a maximum data rate of 4.95Gbps(1.65 per graphics channel). This type of twisted pair transmitter is a great solution in board, conference, and training rooms, it is also a great addition to presentation systems, signal distribution and home theater type applications. Another great feature for the PT-571HDCP transmitter is EDID PassThru which pass EDID signals between the source and display, and a power connect system option, that makes it so a single connection to either the transmitter or receiver can power both units when they are within 150' of each other, for signal transmissions longer than 150' an external power adapter will be required.
The PT-571HDCP has a wide array of system ranges. Using a shielded BC-DGKat524 cable it can send SXGA signals up to 295' or UXGA up to 98'. With a BC–DGKat623 shielded cable it will send SXGA signals up to 295' or UXGA signals up to 230'. For even longer lengths the BC-DGKat7a23 cable can transmit SXGA signals up to 330' or UXGA up to 265'. A shielded twisted pair cable is required for use with the transmitter.
Kramer recommends certain cables for use with this device to achieve optimum range and performance. For best results they suggest the BC–DGKat524, BC–DGKat623 and BC–DGKat7a23 cables. It is important to note however that the transmission range depends on the signal resolution, graphics card and display used. Also it is important to note the distance using non-Kramer CAT5, CAT6, or CAT7 cables may not reach the above mentioned ranges. Use only shielded cable where both ends of the shield are soldered to ground.
This device also uses DGKat Signal Integration which is Kramer's unique technology for converting TMDS as well as control and communication to signals that run over twisted pair cables. They strongly recommend using Kramer DGKat cables that have been specifically designed for optimum performance.
