  • Extends DVI or HDMI + Ethernet + RS-232 + IR over one CATx cable up to 170 m distance
  • 10/100 Ethernet transmission
  • Bi-directional RS-232 and IR
  • HDCP compliant, CEC, EDID transparent
  • Operation mode switch (Auto or forced Long reach mode)


Lightware HDMI-TPS-TX95 and HDMI-TPS-RX95 twisted pair HDBaseTTM extenders provide extension of uncompressed Full-HD video for long distances over a single CATx cable. The unit offers bi-directional RS-232, IR, and Ethernet pass-through all on the same CATx cable that carries the video signal. The TPS extenders support full HDCP and EDID compliance and works at all standard AV resolutions up to 4K and 48-bit color depth handling all standard audio formats as well as 120 Hz 3D signals. Remote powering is available through the single CATx cable, but a local power supply can also be used. All devices can be mounted on a rack shelf or used standalone formats.

The Auto operation mode allows the device to detect the far end extender's mode and adopt it. If the far end device is in Auto mode or it is a third party HDBaseT device the link will be set to HDBT mode. If the far device is in forced Long reach mode then the Auto operation will set the Link to Long reach mode.
