18 March 2013
Kramer Electronics is pleased to introduce the high−performance VS−808TP 8X8 Twisted Pair Matrix Switcher for analog twisted pair signals.
The VS−808TP features eight inputs and eight outputs for remote connection with compatible TP transmitters and receivers. The switcher is designed to work with the auto−adjusting TP−133/TP−134 transmitter/receiver pair. An additional, switchable VGA, stereo audio and RS−232 local input (built−in transmitter) and output (built−in receiver) allows direct connection of the signals (analog video up to WUXGA, audio and RS−232) with these compatible units. The VS−808TP also includes audio−follow−video or breakaway switching for audio signals and 15 user−programmable presets for quick−change configurations.
The VS−808TP is designed especially for presentation and multimedia installations where a high level of control possibilities are required from extended distances. It utilizes economical TP (Twisted Pair) cabling, which is commonly pre−installed in buildings, schools, hospitals, etc. The unit routes and distributes signals both from a local and/or remote source, at extended ranges of up to 200m (656ft). Kramer recommends using Kramer BC−DGKat524, BC−DGKat623 and BC−DGKat7a23 cables for optimum range and performance.
Using Kramer’s TP−133 and TP−134 transmitter/receiver pair with a standard CAT−5 cable automatically makes the system equalize and deskew the signal for different cable lengths.
The two−line LCD display of the VS−808TP shows separate routing information of video, audio or RS−232 signals. The unit is controlled via its front panel buttons, RS−232,
RS−485 and Ethernet.
The VS−808TP is a standard 1U 19” rack mount size and comes with included rack ‘ears’.
The VS−808TP is currently in stock and available from Kramer Electronics sales companies around the world.
