Kramer Introduces the WP-577VH Wall Plate Switcher Transmitter

In Product News by tfwm

Kramer Electronics is pleased to introduce the WP-577VH, a wall plate CATx switcher transmitter (2-gang Decora), for HDMI, VGA and stereo audio with support for RS-232 data and control. The unit automatically switches to the last connected input and transmits the signals to a compatible DGKat twisted pair receiver (such as the TP-578H). Stereo audio can be either embedded into the signal (HDMI or VGA) or transmitted over blank video.

The WP-577VH is decorative and easy to install. It includes optional remote power over CATx cable (Power Connect Plus). K-Link™ compatibility gives wide flexibility to RS−232 to either, control remote devices, be controlled by Kramer Protocol 3000 or to send data to remote, external RS−232 devices. The DGKat technology allows for easy installation – up to 70m (230ft) at 1080p60 over CATx cables. These automatic switching features make the WP-577VH an ideal solution for a Bring-Your-Own-Device environment such as board-rooms, hotel rooms and hospitality venues.
