Thinklogical said the new, uncompressed TLX CATx product line includes video and KVM extenders and a range of matrix switches from 12 to 640 ports.

The company said it is priced to be competitive with compressed and IP-based KVM and video signal management solutions from other vendors.

With TLX, Thinklogical has leveraged its expertise in fiber optic extension and switching to develop a high-bandwidth (10Gbps) hybrid signal transmission architecture supporting both standard CATx copper network cabling and fiber.

TLX CATx is compatible and interoperable with the TLX fiber-optic product line, offering users increased system flexibility in new and existing installations, and a scalable, future-proof upgrade path.

Thinklogical switches provide a 100 percent uncompressed signal path over either CATx or fiber.

Creative professionals working in video-intensive broadcast control rooms or post-production applications such as editing, color grading, digital intermediate and visual special effects can become easily fatigued and unproductive when working long hours on systems with the less-than-optimal image resolution quality and unreliable computer peripheral performance that comes from compressed or IP-based KVM signal management systems.

Thinklogical eliminates these issues by providing a 100 percent uncompressed signal path on either CATx or fiber cabling with the lowest signal latency in the industry (microseconds, vs. milliseconds for compressed solutions), offering precise pixel-for-pixel transmission of 4K DCI/UHD resolution video (up to 4096 x 2160 resolution, 60Hz frame rate, 4:4:4 color depth) with no visual artifacts, jitter or lost frames and instantaneous computer peripheral responsiveness.

This increases user efficiency and productivity without compromising quality, resolution, reliability or performance. TLX Series hybrid signal management products are available now.
