Manufacturer Lightware Visual Engineering

Request more information or contact us now for purchasing information.


The Lightware WP-DVI-HDCP-TP and WP-HDMI-TP 50 series extenders can transmit HDMI or DVI-D signals over two CAT5, CAT6 or CAT7 cables. They fully support HDMI 1.3a signals with or without HDCP encryption. The DVI HDCP-TP series extenders feature screw-locking DVI connectors, while keeping all the features of HDMI 1.3a, including embedded audio. This also ensures reliable operation in professional environments when compared to easily unpluggable HDMI connectors.

The extenders can work with any Lightware Twisted Pair TX / Output board that is able to send power to the Wall Plate.
Supporting the latest HDMI 1.3 standard and 3D HDMI signals, these products can be seamlessly connected to the latest Blu-Ray players, set top boxes, AV receivers and even Apple TV.

Inputs are equalized on all receivers, allowing for up to 65 m long cable extension to be achieved with CAT7S/FTP cable on 1920 x 1080p @ 60 Hz resolution. Accessible distances depend on the used cable quality and signal resolution.
