Send DVI Signals Long Distances over Twisted Pair Cables
Hampton, New Jersey– July 12, 2010– Kramer Electronics is pleased to announce the introduction of the PT-571HDCP and PT-572HDCP twisted pair transmitter and receiver for DVI signals. The PT-571HDCP and PT-572HDCP can transmit DVI signals directly over a twisted pair cable (shielded twisted pair cables are recommended). The             PT-571HDCP and PT-572HDCP offer an extremely compact and inexpensive solution for DVI signal transmission over long distances and are ideal for any application where long distance signal distribution is required.
The PT-571HDCP converts a DVI signal into a signal that can be run over shielded twisted pair cables.  The PT-572HDCP receiver then converts the signal back to a DVI signal. Both units feature a bandwidth of up to 1.65Gbps and are HDCP compliant and HDTV compatible.
A DVI signal can be transmitted up to 295ft. (90 meters) at SXGA resolution and up to 98ft. (30 meters) at UXGA resolution when using Kramer’s shielded BC-DGKat524 cable. Kramer’s shielded BC-DGKat623 cable can extend the range for UXGA to 230ft. (70 meters) and the soon to be introduced Kramer shielded BC-DGKat7a23 cable will extend the range to 265ft. (80 meters) for UXGA signals. For optimum range and performance use Kramer Cables.
The PT-571HDCP and PT-572HDCP use a multicolored status LED that illuminates red when receiving power only, orange when an input signal (on the PT-571HDCP) or output signal (on the PT-572HDCP) and power are attached, and yellow when both an active input and output are attached.   The PT-571HDCP and PT-572HDCP pass the EDID and HPD signals from the source to the display device over the twisted pair cable together with the DVI signal. The PT-571HDCP employs Kramer’s Power Connect™ feature where a single connection to the transmitter powers both units.  The required 12V DC is transmitted through the twisted pair cable, along with the other signals, to the receiver.
The PT-571HDCP and PT-572HDCP are housed in the ultra-compact Pico TOOLS™ enclosure. They carry a list price of $220.00 per unit in the United States and are currently in stock and available from Kramer Electronics sales companies around the world. Complete product information can be found at
