Extron Electronics recently introduced its new XTP DTP 24 Series precision-terminated shielded twisted pair cables in lengths from three feet (90 cm) to 100 feet (30.4 m). Available in both non-plenum and plenum-rated versions, the cables are constructed with the company's HDBaseT Alliance-recommended XTP DTP 24 bulk cable and factory-terminated with XTP DTP 24 plugs.

Extron notes that its XTP DTP 24 Series cables are constructed with performance-optimized, 24 AWG shielded twisted pair cable specifically engineered to Extron's exacting standards of performance. The cable utilizes an SF/UTP (Shielded Foil/Unshielded Twisted Pair) design for superior performance in digital video and audio distribution system applications. The cable assemblies are certified to 475 MHz bandwidth at distances up to 330 feet (100 meters), and engineered and tested to exceed HDMI error rate specifications of less than one pixel per billion at 100 meters.

"With the explosive growth of XTP Systems and DTP Systems digital twisted pair installations, AV integrators have looked to Extron for ways to further simplify installations and reduce their overall labor costs," comments Casey Hall, vice president of sales and marketing for Extron. "These new, precision-terminated XTP DTP 24 cable assemblies offer performance, reliability, and off-the-shelf convenience for the most commonly-used lengths."

To complete an XTP or DTP system cable infrastructure, Extron recommends use of Extron-certified XTP DTP punch down jacks and couplers, available in packages of 10, or in pre-populated AAP - Architectural Adapter Plate, MAAP - Mini Architectural Adapter Plate, and WPD - Wallplate-Decora form factor wallplates.
