SKU 60-1272-12

This item is noncancelable and nonreturnable. 

The Extron DTP DVI 4K 230 Tx is a transmitter for sending DVI-D video, audio, and bidirectional RS‑232 and IR signals up to 230 feet (70 meters) over a shielded CATx cable to Extron DTP®‑enabled products. It provides an economical and effective means for extending single link DVI-D or HDMI signals. In addition, the DTP DVI 4K 230 Tx accepts analog stereo audio signals for simultaneous transmission over the same shielded twisted pair cable. It supports video signals at resolutions up to 4K. The transmitter is equipped with a buffered DVI loop-through output to support a local computer monitor. The compact enclosure size and remote power capability make the DTP DVI 4K 230 Tx ideal for discreet placement in lecterns, beneath tables, or wherever needed to meet application requirements.
