Get to know this product.

Pairs with a DM Lite receiver to provide a simple point-to-point signal extender for HDMI® signals up to UHD and 4K. Provides auto-switching HDMI, VGA, and stereo analog audio inputs.

The HD-TX-201-C-2G-E (-B-T or -W-T) is a wall plate DM Lite transmitter designed to pair with a DM Lite receiver to form a point-to-point signal extender for HDMI® signals. The DM Lite family of products offers a very simple and versatile solution for extending HD, UHD, 2K, and 4K video signals, with stereo or surround sound audio, over a single CAT5e (or better) cable. A cable length of up to 230 ft (70 m) is supported for HD 1080p, WUXGA, and 2K signals, or up to 130 ft (40 m) for UHD and 4K.

In addition to its HDMI input, the HD-TX-201-C-2G-E also includes a VGA input accompanied by a stereo analog audio input. Auto-switching between HDMI and VGA affords plug-and-play simplicity. Manual input selection is also available using the front panel “INPUT SEL” button. The VGA input can accept RGB and component video signals by using an appropriate breakout cable or adapter (not included). The audio input is selected in tandem with the VGA input, and can be used by itself with no video source connected. It cannot be paired with the HDMI video input however.

Note: When paired with an HD-RX-201-C-E receiver, the local inputs are switched in combination with the HDMI input on the receiver, and can also be controlled remotely through integration with a Crestron® control system.

A CAT6a RJ45 courtesy jack is included to provide a 1000Base-T network connection for computers and other devices. The front panel jack simply passes through to a parallel jack on the rear, which connects to an available port on the customer’s LAN. This LAN jack is provided as a convenience to supplant the need for a separate RJ45 wall jack. It does not interface with the DM Lite system and cannot be used to extend Ethernet signals or interface with a control system.

The HD-TX-201-C-2G-E series comes in black or white, and is designed to mount in a 2-gang electrical box or plaster ring (not included). It is normally powered by the receiver over the link cable when using a surface mount receiver. If using a wall plate receiver, a single power pack must be purchased (sold separately, model TBA), which may be connected to either the transmitter or receiver.

Important: This product is not addressable from a control system and offers no programmable functionality except when paired with an HD-RX-201-C-E receiver. Otherwise, AV and CEC signals are simply passed through between the transmitter and receiver. The RJ45 link port on this product is exclusively intended for linking with a single DM Lite receiver. It should not be used to connect to any other equipment or network. DM Lite is not compatible with PoE, PoDM, DigitalMedia 8G+® (DM 8G+®), or HDBaseT®.
