Extron Electronics announced the immediate availability of the MTP 1500RL 15HD RS and MTP 1500RL 15HD RS SEQ Extended Distance Twisted Pair Receivers for VGA and RS-232. These receivers work with MTP Series transmitters to send high resolution video 1,500 feet (450 meters) or more and RS-232 signals up to 1,000 feet (300 meters) over a single CAT 5-type cable. The extended distance receivers are compatible with resolutions up to 1920×1200 WUXGA, and feature separate continuously variable level and peaking adjustments that precisely optimize image quality for various cable lengths. Each receiver also offers an additional female MTP buffered output, enabling up to eight receivers to be connected in series, reducing the number of parallel cable runs required. The SEQ model adds independent skew compensation adjustments for each color.
“The MTP 1500RL 15HD RS receivers join our line of MTP twisted pair products that enable long distance transmission of high resolution video signals in stadiums, airport terminals and other large building applications,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron Electronics. “Our new high performance receivers enable integrators to leverage the benefits of twisted pair on longer cable runs without sacrificing signal quality and integrity.”
The extended distance receivers are housed in low profile, rack-mountable metal enclosures that can be discreetly mounted in racks or behind wall-mounted displays. They are compatible with the MTP Series of transmitters, switchers, distribution amplifiers, and matrix switchers.
