Compatibility
The TP115-110 provides a means of transmitting
Computer video and audio signals over Twisted
Pair (UTP) type cable when used together with an
ALTINEX UTP video receiver, such as the
TP115-111.
The TP115-110 is compact and easy to use. The
TP115-110 is able to transmit VGA or Component
video type sources and audio over UTP cable.
Signal types
Signal resolutions
The TP115-110 offers a female 15-pin HD input
with the native Plug & Play compatibility. The
3.5mm Stereo Audio jack is used for audio input.
The female RJ-45 main output provides distributed
drive to the UTP cable. This unit also offers video
equalization for up to 400 feet. The signal detect
feature shows when a signal is present.

OPERATION
Step 1. Determine the best location for the
TP115-110 and TP115-111. Where
possible, locate the TP115-110 as close
to the video source as possible and the
TP115-111 as close to the receiving
component as feasible.
The TP115-110 requires only one adjustment to be
made for optimal performance. The adjustment is
video equalization for long cable lengths.
7.1 VIDEO EQUALIZATION
Video equalization is provided to fine tune the
displayed image on the remote display.
Typically, for short cable runs the equalization
will be set to near minimum. Cable lengths up to
400 feet will require near maximum equalization.
The equalization adjustments on the TP115-110
and TP115-111 work together to provide
equalization for maximum cable lengths. For
example, for cable runs less than 50 feet, both
equalization settings may be set to near
minimum. Cable runs of 400 feet will see
equalization settings at about the three-quarter
position.
Step 2. Apply power to the TP115-110 using the
power adaptor provided. The Power LED
should be on and red.
Step 3. Connect the video source to the input of
the TP115-110 using a high quality video
cable.
Step 4. The Power LED should change from red
to green indicating a signal is present.
Step 5. Connect the audio input source to the
audio jack on the TP115-110.
Step 6. Run a UTP (CAT-5/CAT-5e) type cable
from the 4TP OUTPUT of the TP115-110
transmitter to the 4TP INPUT on the
TP115-111 receiver.
TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
8
We have carefully tested and have found no
problems in the supplied TP115-110. However, we
would like to offer suggestions for the following:
NOTE: Ensure good signal transmission
by routing the cable so as to
avoid any sharp angles, creases
or bends.
8.1 NO DISPLAY
Cause 1:
Solution:
Step 7. Connect the TP115-111 video and audio
outputs to their receiving devices.
NOTE: Only the L+, L- and GND outputs
on the TP115-111 terminal block
output are active.
Cause 2:
Solution:
Step 8. Apply power to the TP115-111 using the
power adaptor provided. The Power LED
should be on and red; green if a signal is
present.
Step 9. The units are now operational.

Cause 3:
Solution:
7
The source has a problem.
Check the source and make sure
there is a signal present and all
source connections are correct. If
the source is working and there is
still no display, see Cause 2.
The path has a problem.
Connect the transmitter directly to
the receiver using a short UTP
patch cable. If the image is good,
there is a problem with the cable.
Otherwise, see Cause 3.
Cable connections are incorrect.
Make sure that cables are properly
connected. Also, make sure that the
continuity and wiring are good. If
there is still no display present, see
Cause 4.
SPECIAL APPLICATION
Cause 4:
Solution:
Video equalization required.
Adjust the VIDEO EQUALIZATION
on the TP115-110. Long cable runs
may require adjustment on both the
TP115-110 and TP115-111.
In general, cable runs less then 50
feet require little or no video
equalization and should be set to
minimum. Cable runs up to 400 feet
will
require
near
maximum
equalization on both the transmitter
and receiver.
Cause 5: The display has a problem.
Solution: Make sure the display has power
and is turned ON. If there is still no
display, please call Altinex at
(714) 990-2300.
