Lightware and Semtech Simplify AV Network Setup


Lightware’s TPX extenders are now integrated with Semtech’s AVXT technology for use in classrooms, auditoriums and meeting spaces

Lightware visual engineering partners with Semtech Corporation, a global provider of high-performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, by integrating Lightware’s new TPX extenders with Semtech’s AVXT technology to streamline network configuration audiovisual and improve collaboration in classrooms, auditoriums and meeting spaces.

Lightware TPX extenders enable HDMI 2.0 signal management over a single CATx cable with HDCP 2.3 and Dolby Vision support, and also offer compatibility with point-to-point SDVoE (Software Defined Video over Ethernet) terminals.

“Fluid user experiences are key to creating effective meetings and classroom sessions,” said Gergely Vida, Founder of Lightware. “Attendees should focus on content and engagement, not behind-the-scenes A/V technology. We’ve designed our new TPX devices as a new line of easy-to-use, cost-effective extenders to take A/V expansion to the next level. Integrating Semtech’s AVXT extender technology into our TPX devices achieves this goal because AVXT extends multiple signal types over a single cable.

Next Generation TPX Extenders are Lightware’s first AVXT-based devices that easily extend signals for plug-and-play functionality. Additionally, the devices extend signals over a single CATx cable (up to 100 meters), provide fanless passive cooling, and include extended display identification data (EDID) management. Leveraging Semtech’s AVXT technology, the extenders are also capable of outputting transmitter-side audio to send directly to audio systems and also support two-way remote feed.

“Lightware’s use of Semtech’s AVXT technology demonstrates AVXT’s continued popularity as a replacement for existing AV extension technologies,” said Don Shaver, vice president of video product marketing for the product group at signal integrity from Semtech. “With unprecedented levels of performance and robustness, AVXT is leading the next generation of AV extension products and solutions.”
