Kramer Electronics Introduces the TP-41/TP-42 Transmitter/Receiver Combination

Kramer Electronics, a worldwide supplier of audio, video, and computer graphics signal distribution, switching, and processing equipment for the broadcast, production, security, education, home theater, and pro AV presentation markets, has added the to the TP-41 transmitter and TP-42 receiver to its product line. The compact and economical solutions simplify the routing of component video and digital audio signals over inexpensive and convenient Cat-5 cable.

Kramer's TP-41/TP-42 transmitter/receiver combination simplifies the routing of component video and digital audio signals over 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.
