Kramer Introduces New Twisted Pair Transmitter/DA Combination
Posted on Tuesday, September 9, 2008


Unit Advances Systems Technology for Presentation and Multimedia Markets
Hampton, New Jersey– September 9, 2008 – Kramer Electronics, a worldwide supplier of innovative and reliable signal management products, announced the introduction of the TP-205A computer graphics video/Audio/RS-232 Line Transmitter/DA for presentation and multimedia applications. The head-end combination unit is designed for long-range computer graphics video distribution in schools, hospitals, and security and retail applications.  
The first of its kind for Kramer, the advanced twisted pair unit is a high performance combination transmitter for computer graphics video, analog or digital audio and RS-232 signals. It also acts as a distribution amplifier. The desktop unit can transmit signals to up to five separate receivers via CAT 5 type twisted pair cables. The twisted pair technology allows a high resolution video transmission (up to UXGA) range of over 300 feet.
The TP-205A accepts a computer graphics input signal, a selectable unbalanced stereo analog audio signal or a digital audio (S/PDIF) signal, and a unidirectional (TxD) RS-232 control signal.    These signals can then be sent over inexpensive CAT 5 type twisted pair cable to compatible receivers or the signals can be looped to an additional TP-205A transmitter, as well as to a sub-system featuring the Kramer TP-50 twisted pair receiver/DA to create larger distribution systems. 
The Power Connect™ feature on the TP-205A allows the system to be powered by connecting just the TP-205A power adapter. The other units are fed via the cables connecting between the transmitter/receiver. 
The TP-205A XGA/Audio/RS-232 Line Transmitter/DA is in stock and available through the Kramer worldwide dealer network. Complete product information may be found at
