HDMI & IR over Twisted Pair Transmitter

PT-561


The PT-561 and PT-562 are a twisted pair transmitter and receiver for HDMI and IR signals. The PT-561 converts an HDMI and IR signal to a twisted pair signal and the PT-562 converts the twisted pair signal back to an HDMI and IR signal.

Features & Benefits

  • Optional External IR Receiver Cables - C-A35M/IRR-3 and C-A35M/IRR-50.
  • Optional IR Emitter Cables - C-A35/IRE-10 single emitter & C-A35/2IRE-10 dual emitter.
  • Max. Data Rate - 4.95Gbps (1.65Gbps per graphic channel).
  • HDTV Compatible.
  • HDCP Compliant.
  • Bidirectional IR Support - IR is compatible with a Kramer transmitter and via a Kramer external remote IR receiver: C-A35M/IRR or C-A35M/IRE or C-A35M/2IRE.
  • System Range - Up to 90m (295ft) at 1080i, or up to 30m (98ft) at 1080p on shielded BC-DGKat524 cable. Up to 90m (295ft) at 1080i, or up to 70m (230ft) at 1080p on shielded BC-DGKat623 cable. Up to 100m (330ft) at 1080i or up to 90m (295ft) at 1080p on shielded BC-DGKat723 cable.
  • Cable - Requires shielded twisted pair (STP) cable. For optimum range and performance use, use Kramer's BC-DGKat524, BC-DGKat623 and BC-DGKat723 cables. Note that the transmission range depends on the signal resolution, graphics card and display used. The distance using non-Kramer CAT 5, CAT 6, and CAT 7 cables may not reach these ranges. Use only shielded cable where both ends of the shield are soldered to ground.
  • EDID PassThru - Passes EDID signals between the source and display.
  • ON (Red) / Transmit (Green) Status LED.
  • Power Connect System - A single connection to the transmitter powers the receiver
  • Ultra-Compact Pico TOOLS - 4 units can be rack mounted side-by-side in a 1U rack space with the optional RK-4PT rack adapter.
