Lightware's UMX-OPT-TX150R is an all-round, universal video and audio transmitter for ever-changing environments such as small board and conference rooms. The extender was designed to handle digital and analog signals for both video and audio e.g. VGA, DVI and HDMI 1.3 with analog stereo, 5.1 S/PDIF and even 7.1 HDMI embedded audio.
Analog signals are converted to digital formats with digital or digitized analog audio becoming embedded in the video stream. The UMX-OPT-TX150R handles HDCP encryption and has an HDCP enable/disable function.

Using factory, custom or transparent EDID emulation (separate rotary switches for VGA, DVI-A, DVI-D and HDMI inputs), the user can fix and lock EDID data on the transmitter's input connector. Advanced EDID Management forces the required resolution from any VGA or HDMI laptop and fixes the output format conforming to the system requirement.

Intelligent HID Emulation* is provided for two devices with full transparency. Special HID devices including keyboards and mouse - are emulated by the extender and transparently transferred to the computer with the result that no drivers are required for proper functionality, it's as easy as Plug & Play.
*USB 2.0 HID: Human Interface Device such as keyboard, mouse or presenter and Smart Card.
