Anaheim, California (May 13, 2013) - Extron Electronics is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the DTP DVI 230 and DTP DVI 230 D desktop and decorator-style twisted pair extenders. These extenders transmit DVI-D video, audio, and bidirectional RS-232 and IR control signals up to 230 feet (70 meters) over a single CATx cable. The DTP DVI 230 and DTP DVI 230 D provide an economical and effective means for extending single link DVI-D or HDMI signals. The transmitters are each equipped with a buffered DVI loop-through output to support a local computer monitor. Both models feature remote power capability of either the transmitter or receiver, and can be mixed and matched for installation flexibility.

"The addition of the DTP DVI 230 and DTP DVI 230 D to our growing DTP twisted pair extender line provides our customers with valuable tools for digital AV signal distribution," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "The DTP DVI 230 provides a low profile enclosure for discreet placement behind displays or beneath tables, while the DTP DVI 230 D increases system flexibility with convenient in-wall mounting that enables AV system designers and integrators to add inputs and outputs exactly where they are needed."

The extenders support signal resolutions up to 1920x1200 and 1080p/60, and are fully compatible with HDMI signals when used with the appropriate DVI-HDMI adapters from Extron. The DTP DVI 230 and DTP DVI 230 D can transmit HDMI signals, supporting Deep Color up to 12-bit, CEC, and embedded HD lossless audio formats. They also allow a direct connection from devices with an analog stereo audio output, such as desktop computers or laptops, and provide balanced and unbalanced audio output from the receiver.

In addition, the extenders continuously maintain DDC communication of EDID and HDCP between a source and display for reliable operation, ensuring direct compatibility and optimal signal transmission between devices. The DTP DVI 230 and DTP DVI 230 D are compatible with CAT 5e, CAT 6, and CAT 7 twisted pair cable, and can be used as a point-to-point solution or integrated with a switching and distribution system to extend inputs or outputs to remote locations. Extron XTP DTP 24 shielded twisted pair cable is available for optimal performance, providing added protection from outside interference.
