Overview
The TP-573 and TP-574 are a twisted pair transmitter and receiver for
HDMI, bidirectional RS-232 and infrared signals. The TP-573 converts the
input signals to a twisted pair signal and the TP-574 converts it back to
HDMI, RS-232 and infrared signals.
Using the TP-573 and TP-574, you can pass via the twisted pair cable:
• EDID (Extended Display Information Data) and HDCP signals
between the TP-573 and TP-574, and vice versa between the TP-574
and TP-573
• HPD (Hot Plug Detect) signals from the display device to the source
The transmitter / receiver pair feature:
• A maximum data rate of 1.65Gbps
• Bidirectional RS-232 and IR interfaces. The IR input/output transmits
and receives IR commands over CAT 5 cable 1
• An RS-232 baud rate of up to 38400kbps
• HDTV compatibility
• A system range 2 of 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, use only shielded cables with the TP-573 / TP-574, in which the
cable Ground shielding must be connected / soldered to the shield of
both RJ-45 connectors
• Power save, the TP-573 / TP-574 system goes into standby mode when
the HDMI input is not connected
• The Power Connect System™ – a single connection to the transmitter
powers both units
• A compact DigiTOOLS® enclosure where three units can be rack mounted
side-by-side in a 1U rack space with the optional RK-3T rack adapter
1 Compatible with a Kramer transmitter and via a Kramer external remote receiver: C-A35M/IRR or C-A35M/IRE or
C-A35M/2IRE
2 Note that the transmission range depends on the signal resolution, graphics card and display used. The distance using nonKramer CAT 5, CAT 6 and CAT 7a cables may not reach these ranges

Overview
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.
Note: the TP-573 / TP-574 cannot work with unshielded cables.
3.2
About HDCP
The High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) standard (developed
by Intel), protects digital video and audio signals transmitted over DVI or DVI
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.
3.3
Defining EDID
The Extended Display Identification Data (EDID 1 ) is a data-structure
provided by a display to describe its capabilities to a graphics card (that is
connected to the display’s source). The EDID includes the manufacturer’s
name, product type, timing data supported by the display, display size,
luminance data and (for digital displays only) the pixel mapping data.
3.4
About HDMI
High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is an uncompressed all-digital 2
audio/video interface, widely supported in the entertainment and home cinema
industry. It delivers the highest high-definition image and sound quality.
In particular, HDMI 3:
• Provides a simple 4 interface between any audio/video source, such as a
set-top box, DVD player, or A/V receiver and video monitor, such as a
digital flat LCD / plasma television (DTV), over a single lengthy 5 cable
1 Defined by a standard published by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA)
2 Ensuring an all-digital rendering of video without the losses associated with analog interfaces and their unnecessary digitalto-analog conversions
3 HDMI, the HDMI logo and High-Definition Multimedia Interface are trademarks or registered trademarks of HDMI
licensing LLC
4 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
5 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 1 on a single cable
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 2, and user-friendly connector
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
HDMI has the capacity to support:
• Existing high-definition video formats (720p, 1080i, and 1080p/60), as
well as standard definition formats such as NTSC or PAL
3.5
Recommendations for Achieving the Best Performance
To achieve the best performance:
• Connect only good quality connection STP CAT 5 24 AWG cables,
thus avoiding 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 and position
your TP-573/TP-574 away from moisture, excessive sunlight and dust

This section describes the:
• TP-573 HDMI/RS-232/IR Line Transmitter, see section 4.1
• TP-574 HDMI/RS-232/IR Line Receiver, see section 4.2
1 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
2 HDMI provides the quality and functionality of a digital interface while also supporting uncompressed video formats in a
simple, cost-effective manner

Using the RS-232 ports to control a device via a PC
To use the RS-232 ports on the TP-573 and TP-574 to control an RS-232
device, follow these connecting rules:
If the controlled device requires a CROSSED connection:
• Use a straight cable 1 from the computer to the transmitter
• Use a straight cable1 from the receiver to the device
If the controlled device requires a STRAIGHT connection:
• Use a straight cable1 from the computer to the transmitter
• Use a crossed cable 2 from the receiver to the device
Never use a crossed connection to the transmitter
