 XTP T VGA Universal VGA Transmitter 60-1231-12

The Extron XTP T VGA is a universal XTP® transmitter that sends multi-format analog video, audio, control, and Ethernet up to 330 feet (100 m) over a shielded CATx cable. It digitizes all incoming analog formats and applies SD Pro processing to deinterlace 480i and 576i video signals for reliable display on a variety of output devices. To simplify integration, the XTP transmitter features VGA loop-through for source monitoring. It also allows Ethernet extension and insertion of bidirectional RS-232 and IR for LAN access and AV device control at remote locations. The XTP T VGA transmitter works with XTP Systems® for signal distribution and long-distance transmission to remote endpoints.

The XTP T VGA provides extension of RGBHV, HD component video, S-video, and composite video signals from remote analog sources for high performance, point-to-point transmission over a single twisted pair cable. To achieve high quality signal distribution, the transmitter digitizes the analog video signals to a single digital format. EDID Minder® automatically manages EDID communication between the source and the destination, ensuring reliable transmission of the digitized signal. To monitor content, the transmitter's universal 15-pin HD input loop-through allows local connection for all supported formats, eliminating the need for a separate distribution amplifier.

This XTP transmitter offers a range of audio transmission and control options. It has the capability of embedding separate analog stereo audio signals via 3.5 mm TRS connectors for extended transmission. By embedding audio signals into the output stream, the number of cable runs to the destination can be reduced. The transmitter also provides audio input gain and attenuation control plus volume adjustment to manage the audio signals from source endpoints. These features enable the output volume level to be set, eliminating noticeable volume differences when switching between sources.

The XTP T VGA includes an RS-232 and IR insertion port, allowing bidirectional control of an AV device using the one cable. This feature simplifies integration with a control system for managing source devices. Additionally, centralized 10/100 Ethernet communication can be implemented via the Ethernet port to reduce the number of independent network drops required within a system.

To further streamline system design, the transmitter can be powered by the matrix switcher over the same twisted pair cable that transmits the AV and control signals. This capability speeds up installation at remote endpoints by eliminating the need to provide AC power to the device. Housed in a 1" (2.5 cm) high, half rack width metal enclosure, the remote powering capabilities and low profile design of the XTP T VGA transmitter allow for discreet placement in space-challenged environments.

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 XTP Systems. 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.

Extron XTP Systems

Extron XTP Systems provide a completely integrated switching and distribution solution for multiple digital and analog formats. They support local connectivity as well as extended transmission capability for sending high resolution video, audio, RS‑232, and Ethernet up to 330 feet (100 meters) over a shielded CATx cable and even greater distances over fiber optic cabling. Each system is HDCP compliant and delivers ultra‑fast, highly reliable digital switching with Extron's SpeedSwitch® Technology.

At the heart of a system is an XTP CrossPoint matrix switcher. The modular matrix switchers are expandable from 4x4 to 64x64, depending on frame size, and can be populated with a wide variety of XTP I/O matrix boards. Input and output boards provide direct HDMI, SDI, DVI, VGA, video, and audio connections to local sources and displays, and signal extension to remote endpoints when using XTP transmitters and receivers. The matrix switcher can also provide power to a remote XTP device over CATx cabling, depending on transmitter model.

The online XTP System Builder gives convenient access for complete system design. The tool also features a printable bill of materials, pricing, and quote submittal. Once the order is confirmed and received, the included XTP System Configuration Software enables easy setup and configuration right out of the box.

To configure, operate, and monitor the system in real time, user-friendly control software offers a complete view of all XTP devices from a computer. With hot‑swappable modular components, a wide selection of XTP transmitters and receivers, and advanced 24/7 system monitoring, XTP Systems are designed to provide continuous, trouble‑free operation in the most critical applications.
