Active Wall Plate - HDMI over Twisted Pair Receiver


The WP-562 is a DGKat twisted pair receiver for HDMI and IR signals. The WP-561 converts an HDMI and IR signal to a twisted pair signal and the WP-562 converts the twisted pair signal back to an HDMI and IR signal.

Features & Benefits

  • 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.
  • Optional IR Emitter Cables - C-A35/IRE-10 single emitter & C-A35/2IRE-10 dual emitter.
  • Optional External IR Receiver Cable - C-A35M/IRR-3 and C-A35M/IRR-50.
  • Max. Data Rate - 4.95Gbps (1.65Gbps per graphic channel).
  • HDMI Support - HDMI Uncompressed Audio Channels, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD.
  • Power Connect System - A single connection to the transmitter powers the receiver.
  • HDTV Compatible.
  • HDCP Compliant.
  • 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-DGKat7a23 cable.
  • Cable - Requires shielded twisted pair (STP) cable. For optimum range and performance use, use Kramer's BC-DGKat524, BC-DGKat623 and BC-DGKat7a23 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/HDCP signals from source to display.
  • Status LEDs - ON (red), transmit (green).
