Altinex Announces DS801-112 / 113 VGA / Component Plus Audio UTP Transmitter / Receiver
Altinex, a manufacturer of signal management solutions, announces the availability of the DS801-112 and DS801-113 VGA / component plus audio UTP transmitter and receiver. Compact and easy to use, the DS801-112 / 113 transmitter and receiver provide a convenient means of sending video (computer or component) and analog audio over a single twisted pair-type (CAT-5/6) cable -- making these products ideal for transmitting presentation video and audio signals to a remote display and audio receiver or amplifier.
Featuring Intera family styling and designed for installation into a wall or similar surfaces, the new DS801-112 / 113 transmitter and receiver make a terrific solution for multipurpose rooms or other areas where table or podium mounted AV connections may be impractical. As an AV presentation system solution, the DS801-112 / 113 transmitter and receiver offer superior transmission distances -- upwards of 300' (91m) at UXGA 1600 x 1200 resolution. Power/signal present indicators on both transmitter and receiver help provide visual confirmation of operating status, thus ensuring easy operation.
The Altinex DS801-112 transmitter provides a 15-pin HD female connector for video input (VGA or YPbPr) and a 3.5mm stereo jack for audio input. The local output uses a 15-pin HD female connector. This local output enables the presenter, for example, to have a personal display monitor nearby while the audience views a larger screen. The female RJ-45 main output on the rear of the module provides the main drive to the twisted-pair cable, which is accepted on the DS801-113 receiver's female RJ-45 main input connector.
Designed to drive two video displays, the DS801-113 receiver has two 15-pin HD female connectors for the dual buffered video outputs (VGA or YPbPr) as well as a 3.5mm jack for audio output. Audio output is mono on both the left and right channels. The DS801-113 receiver provides video equalization (developed and patented by Altinex) to compensate for signal loss over extended cable runs, thus ensuring excellent image quality, the company says.
Grant Cossey, Altinex vice president of sales, commented on the new DS801-112 / 113 transmitter and receiver pair: "The DS801-112 and DS801-113 provide an easy to-to-use, space saving solution for patching a computer into a presentation system for those spaces -- such as multipurpose rooms -- where table- or podium-mount AV interconnect solutions are impractical. The DS801-112's local output makes it easy for the presenter to keep an eye on what the audience sees and the fact that both transmitter and receiver provide power/signal present indicators makes the entire system intuitive. With the ability to provide first-class image quality over extended distances on as many as two displays, the DS801-112 and DS801-113 offer tremendous value."
