HDMI/DVI (with HDCP), audio and serial fiber-optic based transmitters

Two-port (VG-TX2-MM-HDMI-ISA) or four-port (VG-TX4-MM-HDMI-ISA) flexibility

Overview

Available in two-port (VG-TX2-MM-HDMI-ISA) and four-port (VG-TX4-MM-HDMI-ISA)  these Voyager HDMI transmitters accept DVI or HDMI video through an HDMI input. HDCP, embedded HDMI audio and two-way (duplex) RS-232 are also supported. 1920x1200 uncompressed video signals can be sent to distances of 6,600 feet over multimode fiber.

One multimode fiber-optic module is included with the unit. Additional modules can be ordered to cascade to a second Voyager transmitter or to distribute signals to multiple Voyager receivers.

Singlemode fiber optic modules supporting longer distances (4KM and 30KM) are available from Magenta.

A power supply is also included.

Specifications

Item Description
DC input power Provided by the CORE module. However, power consumption of this module alone is approximately 0.5 watts.
Video Support

Video input formats (video input port):   
• Maximum resolution supported = 1080p or 1920x1200.   
• Maximum color-depth = 24 bits per pixel (8 bits per color).   
• Maximum refresh rate = 60Hz @ 1920x1200.

Video output formats (local output port):   
The local port is essentially a direct copy of the video input port. However, the output video
color-space is always RGB regardless of the input video color-space.

Audio Characteristics This module recognizes all 8 channels (if present) of embedded HDMI audio, passing them through the system to the receiver.
Connectors (1) HDMI-input, (1) HDMI-output, (1) CORE docking connector
EDID/DDC This module supports the EDID/DDC connections on the HDMI connectors.
