The HD‑TX‑4KZ‑201 is a DM Lite® 4K60 4:4:4 transmitter designed to interoperate with a DM Lite® receiver or DMPS Lite™ switcher for the transmission of an HDMI® signal. A CAT5e or higher twisted pair cable is used to connect the HD‑TX‑4KZ‑201 to the DM Lite receiver or DMPS Lite switcher.  For 1080p, WUXGA, and 2K signals, a cable length of up to 230 ft (70 m) is supported. For UHD and 4K signals, a cable length of up to 130 ft (40 m) is supported.1

Interoperability with a DM Lite Receiver or DMPS Lite Switcher
The DM Lite output port of the HD‑TX‑4KZ‑201 must be connected to a DM Lite input port of a DM Lite receiver or DMPS Lite switcher. Examples of supported DM Lite 4K60 4:4:4 receivers are the HD‑RX‑4KZ‑101, HD‑RXA‑4KZ‑101, HD‑RXC‑4KZ‑101, and HD‑RXCA‑4KZ‑101. Supported DM Lite 4K60 4:2:0 receivers are the HD‑RX‑101‑C‑E, HD‑RXC‑101‑C‑E, HD‑RX‑201‑C‑E, HD‑RX‑101‑C‑1G‑E, and HD‑RXC‑101‑C‑1G‑E. Supported DMPS Lite switchers are the HD‑PS622, HD‑PS621, HD‑PS402, HD‑PS401, and HD‑RX‑4K‑210‑C‑E(‑POE).

Note: When paired with an HD-RX-4K-210-C-E(-POE), the transmitter cannot provide power to the receiver. Power must be connected to the HD-RX-4K-210-C-E(-POE) only.

The HD‑TX‑4KZ‑201 can be configured and controlled only when it is used with a DMPS Lite switcher. The web interface of the switcher can be used to configure the HD‑TX‑4KZ‑201. In addition, control system programming and .AV Framework™ software support of the HD‑TX‑4KZ‑201 is hosted by the switcher.

4K60 4:4:4 and HDR Support
The HD‑TX‑4KZ‑201 supports video resolutions up to 4K60 with 4:4:4 color sampling. HDR10, HDR10+, and Dolby Vision® video formats are also supported.2

Automatic Switching of Inputs
When the HD-TX-4KZ-201 is used with a DMPS Lite switcher, the web interface of the switcher or control system programming hosted by the switcher can be used to configure the switching behavior of the HD-TX-4KZ-201. Switching between the two HDMI inputs can occur based on the last connected input or on the routing priority assigned to each input. In addition, input selection push buttons on the front panel of the HD-TX-4KZ-201 enable the desired input to be selected manually.

Compact, Surface‑Mountable Design
Compact in design, the HD‑TX‑4KZ‑201 can be mounted onto a flat surface such as the underside of a table, behind a credenza, or inside a podium. It can also be attached to a single rack rail in the back of an equipment cabinet. The HD‑TX‑4KZ‑201 can receive power from the included power pack or from the remote DM Lite receiver or DMPS Lite switcher.3
