This manual documents two families of MTP transmitters and
receivers:
•
MTP, compatible with Extron’s Enhanced Skew-Free™
A/V UTP cable and Category (CAT) 5, 5e, and 6 shielded
twisted pair (STP), unshielded twisted pair (UTP), or foil
shielded twisted pair (FTP) cable.
•
MTP C7 [CAT 7, C7], compatible with CAT 7 cable only.
In this manual, any reference to these products refers to either
family, unless explicitly stated.
For clarity and where applicable, in this manual, the
CAT 5/5e/6 versions are referred to as non-C7 MTPs.
About this Manual
This manual details the installation and operation of the
following products:
•
MTP T 15HD A twisted pair (TP) transmitter
•
MTP RL 15HD A receiver with loop-through
•
MTP RL 15HD A SEQ receiver with loop-through and
skew equalization
In this manual:
•
The term “transmitter” refers specifically to the
MTP T 15HD A transmitter.
•
The term “receiver” refers to either of the receiver
models — the MTP RL 15HD A or MTP RL 15HD A SEQ.
•
The term “SEQ receiver” refers specifically to the
MTP RL 15HD A SEQ receiver with skew equalization
capabilities.
About the MTP Transmitters and Receivers
The Extron MTP T 15HD A transmitter and MTP RL 15HD A
and MTP RL 15HD A SEQ receivers are a system for longdistance distribution of VGA or other high resolution video and
audio.
The non-C7 MTPs transmit and receive over Extron’s Enhanced
Skew-Free A/V UTP cable or over CAT 5, 5e, or 6 shielded
twisted pair (STP), unshielded twisted pair (UTP), or foil
shielded twisted pair (FTP) cable.
The MTP transmitter inputs high resolution video on a 15-pin HD
connector and stereo audio on a 3.5 mm stereo jack. The
transmitter sums the left and right audio channels to convert the
audio to mono (L+R) format. The MTP T then converts the
input video and mono audio signals to proprietary signals and
outputs them to the compatible MTP receiver on an RJ-45
connector. A pre-peaking control allows you to boost the
transmission distance of the proprietary signal. The transmitter
also makes the input video available for local use on a 15-pin HD
connector.
The receiver inputs the transmitted proprietary signal on an
RJ-45 connector and converts the signal back into its high
resolution video and mono audio components. The receiver
outputs the video on a 15-pin HD connector and the two sets of
identical mono audio signals on a single 3.5 mm captive screw
connector.
The receiver also buffers the proprietary input signal and sends
it to another compatible MTP receiver or to a daisy chain of
receivers.
The transmitter provides pre-peaking, which boosts the
signal before it is transmitted. The receiver’s buffered
output does not provide any pre-peaking control. The
total recommended distance (page 5) for an entire daisy
chain is the same as for a single transmitter and receiver.
The transmitter’s Pre-Peak switch has the same affect on
the recommended transmission distance for a daisy chain
as for a single transmitter and receiver.
Up to eight receivers can be connected in series using
Buffered Output connectors, provided that the total
distance from the transmitter’s TP output to the last
receiver in the chain does not exceed the recommended
distance for the resolution being used.
The SEQ receiver also corrects the skew delay (misconvergence)
commonly encountered when CAT 5, 5e, 6, or 7 TP cables are
used for RGB video, component video, and S-video
transmission.
An SEQ receiver should not be necessary when Extron
Enhanced Skew-Free A/V UTP cable and non-C7
transmitter and receiver(s) are used.
The C7 MTPs transmit and receive over CAT 7 TP cable only.
The MTPs are a part of the Extron VersaTools® line of basic
distribution amplifiers, switchers, transmitters and receivers,
and associated video accessories.

Each MTP transmitter and receiver model is shipped with an
external desktop 12 V power supply that accepts 100 to
240 VAC, 50 Hz or 60 Hz input.
Twisted pair (TP) cable advantages
Twisted pair cable is smaller, lighter, more flexible, and less
expensive than coaxial cable. Termination of the cable with
RJ-45 connectors is simple, quick, and economical.
Transmission distance
The maximum distance is determined by the frequency and
resolution of the signal that is input to the transmitter. The table
below specifies the recommended maximum transmission
distances and transmitter Pre-Peak switch positions (see item 5
on page 13) using Extron Enhanced Skew-Free A/V UTP cable
or UTP CAT 5, 5e, 6, or 7 cable, terminated with RJ-45
connectors.
It is possible to exceed the recommended distance;
however, image quality may be reduced.
The non-C7 transmitter and receiver are designed for
and perform best with Extron Enhanced Skew-Free A/V
cable terminated in accordance with the TIA/EIA T 568 A
wiring standard. CAT 5, 5e, and 6 cables are acceptable
for the non C7 models, but less preferable. We also
recommend the use of preterminated and tested cables.
Cables terminated on site should be tested before use to
ensure that they comply with Category 5 specifications.
The recommendations shown in the table on the
preceeding page apply for a single transmitter and
receiver and for a daisy chain. For example, the
maximum suggested range for 1024 x 768 video is 300'
(90 m) with the Pre-Peak switch off and 500’ (150 m)
with the Pre-Peak switch on, whether the system consists
of one transmitter and one receiver or a transmitter and
three daisy-chained receivers.
For daisy-chained units, the first receiver in the chain
must be at least 100' (30 m) from the transmitter when
the Pre-Peak switch is on.
For daisy-chained units, any receiver in the chain closer
than 350' (105 m) may experience some form of overpeaking when the Pre-Peak switch is on. An overpeaked
image may appear bloomed.

Figure 11 — TP cable termination
RJ-45 termination with CAT 5, CAT 5e, or CAT 6 cable
(for non-C7 units only) or CAT 7 cable (for C7 units
only) must comply with the TIA/EIA T568A or
TIA/EIA T568B wiring standards for all connections.
For proper gounding of CAT 7 cable only, ensure the
shield around each wire pair and the shield around the
CAT 7 cable are all tied to the RJ-45 connectors on both
ends, in accordance with the connector manufacturer
specifications.
RJ-45 termination with Skew-Free A/V UTP cable (for
non-C7 units only) must comply with TIA/EIA T568A
only.
The audio data that is carried on wire pair 3 and 6 is
incompatible with the Extron TPX 88A, which cannot
switch the audio, output it locally, or break it away.
The non C7 transmitters and receivers will not work
properly with CAT 7 TP cable.
Enhanced Skew-Free A/V cable is not recommended for
Ethernet/LAN applications. This cable is specially
designed for compatibility with Extron’s Twisted Pair
products that are wired using the TIA/EIA T568A
standard.
The C7 transmitters and receivers will work properly
only with CAT 7 UTP cable.
Figure 11, on the next page, details the recommended
termination of TP cables with RJ-45 connectors in accordance
with the TIA/EIA T568A or TIA/EIA T568B wiring standards.
You can use either standard with CAT 5/5e/6/7 cable, but
ensure that you use the same standard on both ends of the
cable.

Skew Delay Compensation
Non-SEQ receiver skew compensation
Try using the following methods to minimize or eliminate pair
skew:
CAT 5/5e/6/7 TP cable can lead to registration errors between
the red, green, and blue video signals. Pair skew can be
measured with test equipment or identified by viewing a
crosshatch test pattern with a critical eye to determine if either
the red, green, or blue video image leads (appears to the left of)
the other two video images.
Unless the TP cable is changed, the skew adjustment
should need to be made only once, during installation.
SEQ receiver skew compensation
The SEQ receiver has built-in skew compensation capabilities.
Adjust the equalization as follows:
1.
2.
Zero the skew delay for red, green, and blue as follows:
a.
Use a Tweeker or other small screwdriver to press
and hold the Select button for 3 seconds. The Red,
Green, and Blue LEDs all go out.
b.
Release the Select button.
Use UTP cable test equipment or examine the displayed
video image with a critical eye to determine which video
signal — red, green, or blue — is most shifted to the left.
A crosshatch test pattern or a black background with
vertical white lines is ideal for determining skew.
3.
Adjust the leftmost video signal as follows:
The SEQ receiver cannot shift the rightmost video
image to the left.
a.
Use a Tweeker or other small screwdriver to press
and release the Select button until the LED lights for
the left-shifted color — Red, Green, or Blue.
b.
Slowly rotate the Delay control clockwise while
monitoring the display. Observe that the leftmost
color shifts rightward one step at a time. Continue to
rotate the control until that color is properly converged.
A 2-nanosecond adjustment is very fine. Up to 10
nanoseconds of delay may be necessary before you detect
a change in the display.
c.
4.
22
Use a Tweeker or other small screwdriver to press the
Select button one more time to save the most recent
adjustment or allow the 10-second timeout to elapse.
If the remaining colors are left shifted, repeat steps 2 and 3.
