Product Brochure

The XTP T USW 103 4K is a three-input transmitter for extending DisplayPort, HDMI or VGA, audio, bidirectional control, and Ethernet over a shielded CATx cable. This HDCP 2.2-compliant transmitter supports video signals at resolutions up to 4K and provides a local HDMI output. For operation in unmanaged locations, it features automatic switching between inputs with selectable prioritization. Incoming analog signals are digitized and separate analog stereo audio can be embedded onto the output signal. Ethernet extension and insertion of bidirectional RS‑232 and IR provide LAN access and remote AV device control. Signals can be sent up to 330 feet (100 meters) over shielded twisted pair cable. The XTP T USW 103 4K supports remote power and is ideal for XTP Systems® that require long-distance transmission from a remote location.

The XTP T USW 103 4K provides high-performance switching and signal extension for three remote sources, switching easily between HDMI, DisplayPort, and VGA sources to send video, audio, bidirectional control, and Ethernet over long distances. VGA video signals are digitized to ensure a high quality, reliable digital video signal for enterprise-wide distribution. To streamline operations, the transmitter features auto-switching between inputs, RS‑232 remote control, and contact closure for easy operation in unmanaged locations within a lectern or beneath a table. Switching priority is configurable when multiple inputs are active. A simultaneous HDMI output is provided to support local monitoring.

The transmitter uses Extron all-digital technology to deliver pixel-perfect video signals at resolutions up to 4K. It supports HDMI specifications that include data rates up to 10.2 Gbps, Deep Color up to 12‑bit, 3D, and HD lossless audio formats. To ensure device compatibility and optimal signal transmission between devices, DDC channels are actively buffered, maintaining continuous EDID and HDCP communication with the source and display.

Built for Professional Integration

To enhance and simplify integration of digital and analog AV devices, XTP endpoints utilize two Extron technologies: EDID Minder® and Key Minder®. EDID Minder automatically manages EDID communication between input sources and display devices, to ensure that sources power up properly and reliably send content for display. For HDMI and DisplayPort signals with protected content, Key Minder authenticates and maintains continuous HDCP encryption between input and output devices to ensure quick and reliable switching. If HDCP-encrypted content is sent to a non‑compliant display, a full-screen green signal is transmitted to the destination, providing immediate visual confirmation that protected content cannot be viewed on the selected display.

In addition to high performance video, the XTP T USW 103 4K transmitter extends audio signals over the one cable. For digital audio, they support multiple embedded digital audio formats with embedded audio available on the HDMI and DisplayPort connectors. In addition they include the capability to embed separate balanced/unbalanced analog stereo audio signals in place of digital embedded audio or with the digitized analog video signal for extended transmission. To allow precise control of the audio, the transmitter features audio input gain and attenuation adjustment and muting capabilities.

The XTP T USW 103 4K includes an RS‑232 and IR insertion port, allowing bidirectional control of an AV device over the one CATx cable. This feature simplifies integration with a control system for managing the source device. In addition, centralized 10/100 Ethernet communication can be implemented via the Ethernet extension port to reduce the number of independent network drops required within a system.

The XTP T USW 103 4K can be used with an XTP receiver or scaling receiver for simple point-to-point installations or in combination with an XTP CrossPoint® matrix switcher for AV signal switching and distribution applications. Integrated with an XTP CP 4i 4K I/O board mounted in the matrix switcher, the XTP T USW 103 4K provides streamlined switching and transmission of 4K video. This design takes advantage of system level controls and the ability to extend inserted RS‑232 and IR between the equipment room and a remote endpoint.

Extron recommends Extron-certified XTP DTP 24 shielded twisted pair cable, shielded RJ-45 plugs, jacks, and couplers engineered for optimum signal transmission with Extron XTP Systems. The XTP DTP 24 cable is certified to 475 MHz, and utilizes a SF/UTP design with four unshielded 24 AWG twisted pair conductors inside an overall braid and foil shield for superior performance and noise immunity.
