        HDI-TX-301-C-2G-E-B-T

        DM Lite – HDMI® over CATx Transmitter & 3x1 Auto-Switcher w/2 HDMI plus VGA & Analog Audio, UK/European Wall Plate, Black Textured

        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 (x2), VGA, and stereo analog audio inputs. Mounts in a 2-gang UK or European electrical box.

        The HDI-TX-301-C-2G-E (-B-T or -W-T) is a UK/European 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 70 m (230 ft) is supported for HD 1080p, WUXGA, and 2K signals, or up to 40 m (130 ft) for UHD and 4K.[1]

        The HDI-TX-301-C-2G-E includes two HDMI inputs plus one VGA input. The VGA input is accompanied by a stereo analog audio input. Auto-switching between the HDMI and VGA inputs 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 HDI-TX-301-C-2G-E series comes in black or white, and is designed to mount in a 2-gang UK or European electrical box (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.[2]

        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®.

        1. For the DM Lite link cable, use Crestron DM-CBL-8G DigitalMedia 8G™ cable, Crestron DM-CBL-ULTRA DigitalMedia™ Ultra cable, or third-party CAT5e (or better). The maximum cable length is 70 m (230 ft) for resolutions up to 2K or 40 m (130 ft) for higher resolution signals up to 4K. Refer to the “Maximum DM Lite Link Cable Lengths” table for a more detailed overview. Shielded cable and connectors are required when bundling multiple cables in a wire run, and are recommended for all applications to safeguard against unpredictable environmental electrical noise which may impact performance at resolutions above 1080p. All wire and cables are sold separately. DM Lite devices are not compatible with DigitalMedia 8G+ (DM 8G+), HDBaseT, PoE, PoDM, or any other CATx based interface or network.
        2. When connecting a wall plate transmitter to a surface mount receiver, use the power pack that ships with the receiver. If the transmitter and receiver are both wall plates, a separate power pack must be purchased, which may be connected to either the transmitter or receiver. Only one power pack is required. Do not connect more than one power pack. Please note, the wall plate compatible power pack is not yet available. Please contact Crestron Customer Support for assistance when pairing a wall plate transmitter with a wall plate receiver. DM Lite devices are not compatible with PoE or PoDM.
        3. The HDMI input requires an appropriate adapter or interface cable to accommodate a DVI or Dual-Mode DisplayPort signal. CBL-HD-DVI interface cables are available separately.
        4. The VGA input requires an appropriate breakout cable or adapter to accommodate an RGB or component video signal.
