WP-UMX-TP-TX100 and FP-UMX-TP-TX100 series
Quick Start Guide
Select audio source
The WP-UMX-TP-TX100 and FP-UMX-TP-TX100 series are CATx extenders accepting
multiple input formats. The transmitter can select one video and one audio source and
forward them as HDMI signal with embedded audio to a remote receiver. These signals can
be selected on the front panel by VIDEO SELECT and AUDIO SELECT buttons, or by the
Lightware Matrix Control Software via the connected RX device’s RS-232. The control
software also enables Advanced EDID Management. Lightware standalone receivers (TP-RX)
and even the modular matrix input boards (TP-IB) are compatible with this unit.
Front and Back view
Press the AUDIO SELECT button, to switch between ANALOG / EMBEDDED AUDIO.
In auto-select mode the audio channels are selected by default based on video detection:
DVI-I DIGITAL signal detection connects the HDMI embedded audio, VGA VIDEO detection
connects the analog stereo input.

DVI-I DIGITAL/ANALOG or VGA VIDEO LED blinks: waiting for signal on the selected input
DVI-I DIGITAL and VGA VIDEO blinks alternately: waiting for signal in auto-select mode

Remote management
Several functions of WP-UMX-TP-TX100R are available only remotely via an RS-232
pass-through compatible RX device (e.g.: HDMI-TP-RX100R), which is connected to a
computer or controller device by a female-female straight-through cable. The transmitter
can be listed by the Lightware Matrix Controller Software by clicking twice on the name of
the corresponding serial port. Connect the device with the Control Software.
Input and Output settings
1. The settings are available on the Control tab by clicking on the ‘Video inputs’ or
‘Video ouput’ labels.
