The Voyager series employs the FiberMax Engine technology to distribute multi-format high-bandwidth signals over fibre at “significantly” lower costs. Magenta’s Voyager Fibre Optic Signal Distribution Platform is an interoperable set of transmitters, receivers, distribution amplifiers and matrix switchers, which enables any end-to-end configuration for extension and switching of uncompressed multi-format video and audio, RS-232, IR and 480 Mbps USB 2.0 signals over fibre at distances up to 16.75MI/30KM.
Designed for use across the digital signage and pro-A/V systems integration markets, the Voyager series was launched officially at InfoComm 2010 last week.
Employing a modular ‘building block approach’ to configuration, the Voyager series is based around the core FiberMax engine for A/V distribution over fibre. The Flex-VCA architecture enables each Voyager transmitter and receiver to support a wide variety of analogue and digital video formats through plug-and-play field interchangeable modules. For display installations requiring mixed resolutions, the ScaleMAX technology can provide the necessary up-/down-scaling.
Magenta Research’s European sales and marketing manager, Rob Muddiman, told IE: “The Voyager series is designed as a modular and scalable platform that future-proofs any installation through its unique ability to upgrade future signal types and cable types by simply replacing the appropriate modules with newer modules as they become available.”
