The compact and economical solutions simplify the routing of component video and digital audio signals over inexpensive and convenient Cat-5 cable.
The TP-41 transmitter/encoder includes an analog component video input and a digital audio input (S/PDIF), all on RCA connectors. The range of the Cat-5 output to the TP-42 receiver/decoder easily exceeds 300ft.
Chris Kopin, vice president of product development for Kramer, says “Whether you are using this transmitter/receiver combination in a home cinema application or in a professional application where component video and/or digital audio signals are being utilized; these units allow you to replace four bulky and relatively expensive coaxial cables with one inexpensive and easy-to-install Cat-5 cable. As a direct result, your installations can be both cost reduced and simplified.”
The TP-41 has individual level controls for the Y, U, and V (also known as Y, Pb, and Pr or Y, B-Y, and R-Y) signals, as well as audio level controls. The TP-42 receives the Cat-5 signal, decodes it, and outputs it to the YUV and S/PDIF RCA outputs. The TP-42 has individual level and EQ controls for the Y, U, and V signals, as well as level and EQ controls for audio. Each unit is housed in a compact Kramer TOOLS enclosure and fed by 12VDC.
The Kramer TP-41 and TP-42 are now in stock and each carries a list price in the United States of $200.
