The Extron MTP 15HD RS Series is a versatile family of mini twisted pair transmitters and receivers for transmitting VGA and RS-232 serial control signals long distances to presentation displays over a single unshielded twisted pair cable. They are compatible with resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and will support cable runs of 600 feet (185 meters) or more with XGA signals, and 450 feet (135 meters) or more with UXGA signals.

The MTP 15HD RS Series is ideal for systems where high resolution video signals must be transmitted long distances to a display where conduit space is limited or for systems where cabling might be exposed or visible. Ideal applications include public information displays at airports, museums, movie theaters, and hotels.

Compact Transmitters and Receivers

The MTP 15HD RS series transmitters and receivers can be used with any Category 5, 5e, or 6 twisted pair cable or with Extron Enhanced Skew-Free™ AV UTP cable.

The MTP T 15HD RS transmitter sends RGBHV high resolution video and RS-232 signals to a compatible MTP RL 15HD RS or MTP RL 15HD RS SEQ receiver. Both MTP 15HD RS receiver models offer separate variable level and peaking adjustments that precisely optimize image quality for various UTP cable lengths. MTPs are compact so they can fit just about anywhere: in equipment racks, under tables and desktops, or next to a projector.

Buffered Loop-Through

The Extron MTP RL 15HD RS Mini Twisted Pair Receiver with Loop-Through features an added female MTP buffered output, enabling up to eight receivers to be connected in series, reducing the number of parallel cable runs required.

Integrated Skew Delay Equalization

The MTP RL 15HD RS SEQ features an integrated skew delay equalizer. Skew delay is the color misalignment present in twisted pair AV systems using Category 5, 5e or 6 cable in which the red, green, and blue video signals arrive to the display at different times. Using Extron's skew delay equalizer technology, the arrival of color signals is synchronized, improving image quality while maintaining full signal integrity.

The MTP 15HD Series

The compact MTP 15HD Series is designed for easy integration into new and existing AV environments. The MTP 15HD Series is a complete twisted pair system including transmitters, receivers, switchers, and distribution amplifiers, providing the ability to send, route, and distribute high resolution video, audio, and control signals. The entire family of Extron MTP 15HD products sets the price/performance standard for audio/video twisted pair technology.

Benefits of Using Twisted Pair

Because the MTP 15HD mini transmitters and receivers utilize UTP cable for distribution, they offer considerable advantages in cost, performance, and ease of installation. UTP cable is a fraction of the size of coaxial cable, and much lighter, more flexible, and less expensive, thus providing AV system designers and installers with an economical, space efficient solution for a variety of applications.
