The product is a one-gang, Decora-style wallplate designed to be the primary PC interface for classrooms, boardrooms, and conference centers. It features DisplayPort + Audio to HDMI conversion and an HDMI input. If the DisplayPort signal does not support embedded audio, the analog audio input port can be accessed via RS232.
The HDBaseT Transmitter utilizes HDBaseT technology to extend the digital output up to 70 meters away using solid core shielded Category 5e or greater cable. This transmitter device is compatible with several HDBaseT receivers, but is designed to work primarily with the HDBaseT Receiver. The unit features multiple EDID modes to eliminate user confusion, and incompatible video formats.
The HDBaseT Transmitter can be powered from the rear panel or by Power over HDBaseT (PoH), including midspan injectors that support Power over Ethernet (PoE) Alternative A or Alternative B. Built-in surge protection and diagnostic LEDs ensure hassle-free and robust installations. The HDBaseT Transmitter also features a customizable power management system, which will put the unit into a low power state after no video for 30 minutes or being inactive for 3 hours by default. When using the local power input, 12V DC is available for other devices on the power output connections on the rear of the device.
The HDBaseT Transmitter will detect which input has an active video input, and switch to that input – if both inputs are active, the “last in” will be selected. RS232 control of the HDBaseT Transmitter can be accomplished by connecting to the RS232 port on a compatible receiver, such as a HDBaseT Receiver, or through a direct connection on the RS232 input of the device
The HDBaseT Transmitter can be programmed to control the connected display. This allows display power and input to be automatically controlled based on video activity, eliminating the need for a third party control system in many installations.
