Lightware TP series transceivers are DVI over twisted pair extenders which transmit Single-Link DVI-D signals over a single Cat5 CAT6 or CAT7 cable.

Accessible distances depend on the used cable quality and signal resolution. DVI-TP-TX200 and DVI-TP-TX300 transmitters include an EDID Manager and built-in DVI distribution amplifier for local monitor output. Only one CATx cable is needed for DVI signal transmission, there is no need for second CAT cable. Beside the local DVI output TX200 provides one and TX300 provides two identical CATx outputs. TX300 allows transmission of DVI signal to three different remote displays including local monitor. 

All transceivers can be rack mounted or used standalone. The units are compatible with MX-DVI-TP-IB and MX-DVI-TP-OB boards which fit in Lightware matrix router frames.
