Lightware Visual Engineering Unveils Taurus TPX for Long-Distance USB-C Extension

Taurus TPX, featuring SDVoE technology, enables users to connect, share and control devices and peripherals across long distances

Budapest, Hungary (5 September 2023) — Lightware Visual Engineering, a leading manufacturer of connectivity solutions for the professional integrated systems market, announces the Taurus TPX, a lineup of USB-C extenders for high-resolution transmission over long distances. Based on SDVoE technology, the Taurus TPX features a transmitter (TX) and a receiver (RX) that enable users to connect their devices, share their content, switch hosts and control their meeting room easily and intuitively.

The Taurus TPX is built on the foundation of Lightware’s award-winning Taurus UCX, a revolutionary unified communications (UC) connectivity solution that bridges the gap between BYOM applications and USB-C devices. However, every meeting room is different, and the distance between the table (the host’s laptop) and the different peripherals such as the webcam or the high-quality mic is often beyond the native capabilities of USB technology.

The Taurus TPX is uniquely designed to connect devices and peripherals, such as web cameras and microphones, across long distances in large-scale applications. Lightware’s newest development, and a natural progression from the widely popular Taurus UCX, the Taurus TPX creates a reliable, high-performance solution for extending 4K60 4:4:4 video resolution across distances up to 100 meters. The Taurus TPX features two USB-C inputs, two HDMI inputs and USB ports for host devices, such as laptops, on the TX device, and together eight USB type-A connectors for peripherals, specifically four on the TX and four on the RX. This unique connectivity platform allows users to share their content, switch hosts and control their meeting room easily and intuitively. In addition, Taurus TPX provides fast charging of laptops, tablets and smartphones. 

“The Taurus TPX unlocks a new level of versatility in connectivity devices by enabling flexibility in system design for large-scale applications,” said Gergely Vida, CEO of Lightware Visual Engineering. “The Taurus TPX can distribute high-resolution video signals across long distances to create a reliable, flexible solution for large-scale rooms, such as auditoriums, control rooms, large conference rooms and other spaces requiring seamless connectivity over 100 meters.”

Gergely Vida added, “Today’s professionals are utilizing their own devices to host meetings and share content. In large-scale applications, connecting BYOM devices to room peripherals, such as web cameras and microphones, is challenging. Taurus TPX eliminates barriers to collaboration and connectivity by allowing seamless operation with room devices. It simplifies switching between sources depending on the needs of a particular meeting.”

By harnessing SDVoE technology, users can enjoy the same benefits of simplified video, audio, control, Ethernet connectivity and charging over one single CATx cable in rooms where longer distances need to be bridged. Ideal for corporate, higher education, and government and security applications, Taurus TPX enables users to utilize third-party video conferencing applications within a collaboration space, including Cisco Webex, Microsoft Teams and Zoom. It creates a simplified and intuitive solution for users to switch between multiple third-party applications depending upon their meeting needs. 

Additionally, Taurus TPX can automate room assets like lights and shades without the complexity of using another control platform. Notably, the TX supplies power to the RX, eliminating the need for additional power sources and reducing power consumption across devices. The Taurus TPX can be controlled via button panels, web browsers or by connecting a source. Together with the auto-switching and room control capabilities, the Taurus TPX creates a simplified collaboration solution.
