The MX-TPS-IB input board, MX-TPS-OB Output Board for the MX series routers and HDMI-TPS-TX90 and RX90 long-distance HDMI signal extenders from Lightware U.S.A., the U.S. distributor for Budapest-based Lightware Visual Engineering products, are now shipping.

The new products are among those to be showcased in the Lightware booth at InfoComm13, June 8-14 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando booth # 4180.


The input and output boards and extenders are ideal for postproduction studios, control rooms, digital signage, multi-room video, conference rooms and collaborative telepresence - or any application requiring signal transmission over long distances.

The MX-TPS-IB is an 8-channel twisted pair input board for Lightware's MX series Modular Matrix Routers that provides HDMI 1.4, audio, Ethernet, IR, RS-232 and remote power extension on a single Cat-5/6/7 cable up to 100 m distance. It handles resolutions up to 4K, 48-bit color depth, all HDMI audio formats and 120Hz 3D signals. The board offers bi-directional RS-232 and Ethernet transmission and features a 10/100 uplink connector for the Ethernet network connection.

The MX-TPS-IB offers audio option connectors: digital S/PDIF or analog stereo connectors are available for advanced audio functions. Audio can be embedded or de-embedded on the input or output board of the Matrix. Advanced professional functions, such as HDCP enable/disable mode, Pixel Accurate Reclocking, Advanced EDID Management and Input Signal Frame Detector, are integrated and provide the highest level of set up and usage.

The board is compatible with deep color, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD audio and features PCM audio sample rate conversion.

The HDMI-TPS-TX90 and RX90 twisted pairs extend uncompressed full HD video for extreme distances (up to 180 m) over a single Cat-x cable. They handle resolutions up to 4K and UHD, 48-bit color depth, all standard audio formats and 120Hz 3D signals.

The units offer bi-directional RS-232, IR and Ethernet pass-through all on the same Cat-5e/Cat-7 cable that carries the video signal. The extenders support full HDCP and EDID compliance and work at all standard AV resolutions. Remote powering is available through the single Cat-5e/Cat7 cable; a local power supply also can be used. All devices can be mounted on a rack shelf or used in stand-alone formats.
