The Extron DTP2 R 212 is a digital twisted pair receiver that works with Extron DTP®-enabled products to send HDMI, audio, as well as bidirectional control signals up to 330 feet (100 meters) over a shielded CATx cable. It features one DTP2 input, one HDMI input for a local video source, and one HDMI output. The receiver supports video resolutions up to 4K/60 at 4:4:4 chroma sampling, and complies with HDCP 2.3. Audio de-embedding and Ethernet remote control facilitate integration in professional environments. Integrator-friendly features include EDID Minder®, auto-switching between inputs, and bidirectional RS‑232 and IR pass-through for remote AV device control.

The DTP2 R 212  enables reliable, long distance transmission of HDMI signals at up to 18 Gbps, HDR, Deep Color up to 12‑bit, CEC, and embedded HD lossless audio formats. A local HDMI input allows connection of an additional video source at the display, which is beneficial in BYOD applications where the display may need to support both a local collaboration appliance and remote sources. The DTP2 R 212 can also provide power to a remote DTP2 transmitter over the shielded twisted pair cable, enabling both devices to share one power supply.

To enhance and simplify integration of devices and to help ensure optimal system performance, the DTP2 R 212 receiver features Extron EDID Minder, which automatically manages EDID by maintaining continuous EDID communication with each source, ensuring that the sources power up properly and reliably output content for display.

Unique Audio Features

DTP2 R 212 features bass, treble, and volume controls. The stereo output is selectable for de-embedded or pass-through analog audio as a balanced or unbalanced signal on a captive screw connector. Analog audio signals are sent over the same shielded twisted pair cable as the video and control signals, eliminating the need for a separate cable run.

Control Versatility

The DTP2 R 212 provides other convenient, integrator-friendly features designed to help simplify installation. The front panel features input selection buttons, and six LEDs that indicate input and output signal status along with HDCP presence. Auto-switching allows for simple, intuitive operation in locations such as within a lectern or with the display device. When multiple inputs are active, the switching priority is configurable. The unit also provides internal Web pages to monitor unit status.

The DTP2 R 212 provides Ethernet to RS‑232 insertion to the DTP2 port as well as a separate RS‑232 port dedicated for display control. This enables system level control of devices attached to the remotely connected DTP2 transmitter as well a locally connected display.

Set up and Configuration

The DTP2 R 212 can be configured using Extron's PCS - Product Configuration Software with a user-friendly GUI that is very easy to navigate. This software application allows for expedited setup and commissioning, real-time operation and monitoring, plus the ability to configure several units in the same session. The DTP2 receiver can be integrated with an Extron DTP CrossPoint® presentation matrix switcher, or other DTP-enabled products to support devices at remote locations.

The receiver is housed in a 1" (2.5 cm) high, three-quarter rack width metal enclosure. The low profile enclosure allows for discreet placement.

Extron recommends Extron-certified XTP DTP 24 shielded twisted pair cable, shielded RJ-45 plugs, jacks, and couplers engineered for optimum signal transmission with Extron DTP Series products. The XTP DTP 24 cable is certified to 475 MHz and utilizes a SF/UTP design with four unshielded 24 AWG twisted pair conductors inside an overall braid and foil shield for superior performance and noise immunity.
