The Arista ARD-5816 KVM Extender/AV Transmitters and Receivers Cluster being showcased at ISE supports a wide range of HDBaseT AV transmitter and receiver cards. This, says the company, makes it an ideal solution for placement in conference centres, education facilities, digital signage, sports bars, and similar applications where multiple video displays are common.
Being HDBaseT compatible, the ARD-5816 supports the global standard for the transmission of ultra-high-definition video and audio, ethernet, RS-232 and IR control, USB, and power over a single, long-distance CAT6 cable. Thus, either fibre optic or twisted pair (CAT6) cabling can be used to address various distance requirements.
The ARD-5816 supports 4K UHD video. By housing a variety of up to 16 AV transmitter and receiver cards, the Arista ARD-5816 is designed to simplify integration for large and complex professional AV system installations by serving as a convenient, centralised solution for controlling multiple video displays. It also eliminates individual power supplies for each transmitter and receiver, streamlining installation.
The new ARD-5816 supports a wide range of video formats, including HDMI, DVI-D, 3G-SDI, DP, and RGB. Available transmitter and receiver cards include AV-HDMI, AV-CVBS, PC-HDMI, PC-DVI, PC-VGA, plus others.
