Getting Started
We recommend that you:
•
Unpack the equipment carefully and save the original box and packaging
materials for possible future shipment
2.1
•
Review the contents of this user manual
•
Use Kramer high performance high resolution cables
Achieving the Best Performance
To achieve the best performance:
•
Use only good quality connection cables to avoid interference, deterioration
in signal quality due to poor matching, and elevated noise levels (often
associated with low quality cables)
•
Avoid interference from neighboring electrical appliances that may adversely
influence signal quality
•
Position your Kramer PT-571 and PT-572+ transmitter/receiver pair away
from moisture, excessive sunlight and dust

Overview
The PT-571 is a DGKat™ twisted pair transmitter for HDMI signals. The PT-571
converts an HDMI signal to a single twisted pair signal and the PT-572+ converts
the twisted pair signal back to an HDMI signal.
The HDMI Line Transmitter/Receiver system features:
•
Maximum data rate/bandwidth up to 1.65Gbps
•
HDTV compatibility and HDCP compliance
•
HDMI Support – HDMI (V.1.4 with Deep Color, x.v.Color™, Lip Sync, HDMI
Uncompressed Audio Channels, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD)
•
EDID PassThru that passes EDID signals between the source and display
•
3D pass-through
•
System Range – Up to 90m (295ft) at 1080i, or up to 30m (98ft) at 1080p on
shielded BC-DGKat524 cable; 90m (295ft) at 1080i, or up to 70m (230ft) at
1080p on shielded BC-DGKat623 cable; 100m (330ft) at 1080i or up to 90m
(295ft) at 1080p on shielded BC-DGKat7a23 cable
Note that the transmission range depends on the signal resolution, graphics card and
display used. The distance using non-Kramer CAT 5, CAT 6 and CAT 7a cables may
not reach these ranges
•
DGKat™ Signal Integration – Kramer’s unique technology for converting
TMDS as well as control and communication to signals that run over twisted
pair cables
•
Power Connect™ that feeds 12V DC over the CAT 5 cable from transmitter
to receiver (see Section 3.2)
•
Ultra-Compact Pico TOOLS™ – 4 units can be rack mounted side −by−side
in a 1U rack space with the optional RK−4PT rack adapter.
i
Use only shielded cable where both ends of the shield are soldered
to ground to eliminate ESD interface.

3.1
Using Twisted Pair Cable
Kramer engineers have developed special twisted pair cables to best match our
digital twisted pair products; the Kramer: BC-DGKat524 (CAT 5 24 AWG), the
Kramer: BC-DGKat623 (CAT 6 23 AWG cable), and the Kramer: BC-DGKat7a23
(CAT 7a 23 AWG cable). These specially built cables significantly outperform
regular CAT 5/CAT 6/CAT 7a cables.
3.2
About the Power Connect™ Feature
The Power Connect™ feature here means that only one unit in a system, the
transmitter or receiver, needs to be connected to a power source when the
devices are within 90m (270ft) of each other. The Power Connect™ feature
applies as long as the cable can carry power and the distance does not exceed
90m on standard CAT 5 cable. For longer distances, heavy gauge cable should be
used (CAT 5 cable is still suitable for the video/audio transmission, but not for
feeding the power at these distances).
3.3
About HDCP
The High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) standard developed by
Intel, protects digital video and audio signals transmitted over DVI or HDMI
connections between two HDCP-enabled devices to eliminate the reproduction of
copyrighted material. To protect copyright holders (such as movie studios) from
having their programs copied and shared, the HDCP standard provides for the
secure and encrypted transmission of digital signals.

About HDMI
High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is an uncompressed all-digital
audio/video interface, widely supported in the entertainment and home cinema
industry. HDMI ensures an all-digital rendering of video without the losses associated
with analog interfaces and their unnecessary digital-to-analog conversions. It
delivers the maximum high-definition image and sound quality in use today. Note
that Kramer Electronics Limited is an HDMI Adopter and an HDCP Licensee.
HDMI, the HDMI logo and High-Definition Multimedia Interface are trademarks or registered
trademarks of HDMI licensing LLC.
In particular, HDMI:
•
Provides a simple interface between any audio/video source, such as a settop box, DVD player, or A/V receiver and video monitor, such as a digital flat
LCD / plasma television (DTV), over a single lengthy cable
SIMPLICITY - With video and multi-channel audio combined into a single cable, the
cost, complexity, and confusion of multiple cables currently used in A/V systems is
reduced
LENGTHY CABLE - HDMI technology has been designed to use standard copper
cable construction at up to 15m
•
Supports standard, enhanced, high-definition video, and multi-channel digital
audio on a single cable
MULTI-CHANNEL DIGITAL AUDIO - HDMI supports multiple audio formats, from
standard stereo to multi-channel surround-sound. HDMI has the capacity to support
Dolby 5.1 audio and high-resolution audio formats
•
Transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports 8-channel digital audio, with
bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements
•
Benefits consumers by providing superior, uncompressed digital video quality
via a single cable, and user-friendly connector
HDMI provides the quality and functionality of a digital interface while also supporting
uncompressed video formats in a simple, cost-effective manner
•
Is backward-compatible with DVI (Digital Visual Interface)
•
Supports two-way communication between the video source (such as a DVD
player) and the digital television, enabling new functionality such as automatic
configuration and one-button play
•
Has the capacity to support existing high-definition video formats (720p,
1080i, and 1080p), standard definition formats such as NTSC or PAL, as
well as 480p and 576p

!
Always switch off the power to each device before connecting it to your
Transmitter and Receiver pair. After connecting your Transmitter and
Receiver pair, connect the power and then switch on the power to
each device.
You can use the PT-571 HDMI Line Transmitter with the PT-572+ HDMI Line
Receiver to configure an HDMI transmitter/receiver system.
To connect the PT-571 to the PT-572+, as illustrated in the example in Figure 3,
do the following:
1. Connect the CAT 5 OUT RJ-45 connector on the PT-571 to the CAT 5 IN
RJ-45 connector on the PT-572+ via a CAT 5 cable (see Section 6.1).
2. On the PT-571, connect an HDMI source (for example, a DVD player) to the
HDMI IN connector.
3. On the PT-572+, connect the HDMI OUT connector to an HDMI acceptor
(for example, a plasma display).
4. Connect the 12V DC power adapter to the power socket on the PT-571
and/or the PT-572+ and connect the adapter to the mains electricity (not
shown in Figure 3).
