“HDBaseT is playing an important role in the capabilities of Lightware’s growing product range,” says Drew Taylor, director of sales and applications at Lightware U.S.A., the US distributor for Budapest-based Lightware Visual Engineering products.

HDBaseT’s 5Play feature set, which delivers uncompressed full HD digital video, audio, 100BaseT Ethernet, power and control signals over a single CAT5e/6 cable, can be used for commercial integration.

Taylor says. “By supporting HDBaseT, Lightware is responding to needs from the integration space for remote power and the ability to extend RS232 and Ethernet from the matrix to all end points. Our UMX transmitters also can support any connection type.”

The new UMX-TPS product line includes HDBaseT extenders with wall and floor plate models. Targeted to environments such as small boardrooms and classrooms, these devices transmit universal video at resolutions up to 4K, audio, and control up to 180 meters over one CAT cable. The UMX-TPS-TX140 transmission unit is compatible with both Lightware’s HDBaseT extenders and matrix switchers.

Lightware’s own Hybrid architecture is an equivalent of HDBaseT technology delivering video, audio, Ethernet, IR, RS232 and power over a single CAT cable.

“Where Lightware separates itself from the competition is with its 65x65 and 80x80 matrix switchers, which offer Hybrid architecture with HDMI local inputs and outputs mixed with TPS boards,” says Taylor. “Lightware switchers also support 4K – not many other companies are shipping products with 4K capabilities yet.”
