Kramer Introduces New Twisted Pair Transmitter/Receiver Set
Kramer Electronics is pleased to announce the introduction of two new products to its extensive and evolving lineup of twisted pair products: the TP-219HD transmitter and the TP-220HD receiver/distribution amplifier. Together these models will transmit and receive computer graphics video and HDTV video signals over twisted pair cable.

The TP-219HD is a high performance twisted pair transmitter for computer graphics video signals with resolutions ranging from VGA through UXGA and higher, as well as HDTV signals up to1080p. It takes one of two inputs as selected by the user and converts it to a twisted pair signal. The TP-219HD includes an input select button and user adjustable sync polarity settings with H & V switches for improved HDTV compatibility. The TP-219HD can be used as a standalone switcher or as a companion component to one of Kramer’s twisted pair receivers, such as the TP-120, PT-120 or the new TP-220HD.

The TP-220HD is a high performance twisted pair receiver for computer graphics video signals with resolutions ranging from VGA through UXGA and higher, as well as HDTV signals up to1080p. It converts a twisted pair signal back into two identical signals in the original format. The TP-220HD includes level (gain) and EQ (peaking) controls, which allows the user to adjust the signal depending on the cable length. The TP-220HD can be used as a standalone distribution amplifier or can be used with other Kramer twisted pair products, such as the TP-110 transmitter.

Both these twisted pair products feature Kramer’s Power Connect™ System in which only one unit in the system, either the transmitter or receiver, needs to be connected to an external power source.

For both the TP-219HD and the TP-220HD, it is recommended that a high quality twisted pair (CAT 5) cable such as a skew free cable be used. Kramer now offers a line of skew free twisted pair cables in a variety of different lengths.

The TP-219HD carries a list price of $195 and the TP-220HD carries a list price of $345 in the United States and both are in stock and available from Kramer Electronics sales companies around the world.
