You can create twisted pair systems with the TPX 88 twisted pair matrix switcher. Routing and switching high-resolution RGB, video, and stereo audio signals using the company's Skew-Free A/V UTP or Cat-5/5e/6 unshielded twisted pair cable is possible. The TPX 88 offers two models: the TPX 88 and the TPX 88 A with local audio out. Each model accepts high-resolution RGBHV, RGBS, RGsB, RsGsBs, component video, progressive component video, S-video, composite video, and stereo audio transmissions up to 1,600 by 1,200 with scan rates from 15 to 130 kHz from twisted pair transmitters and routes them through to a corresponding receiver and display.
