Three single-package One Room – One Cable kits are being showcased by Aurora Multimedia at ISE 2015. The company says that these kits will ship complete with two ceiling tile speakers, dual-input HDBaseT wall plate switcher, HDBaseT Receiver with 2 x 35W amplifier and an 8-button in-wall control panel. According to Aurora, the One Room – One Cable kit only requires a single Cat-cable between the switcher and the display, making installation very straightforward.
The company believes that the three kits – ORC-1, ORC-2 and ORC-3 – make specifying, ordering, deploying and installing easy, organised and streamlined. Each kit is based around Aurora’ DXW-2 Series keypads. ORC-1 ships complete with the DXW-2 wall plate/switcher featuring HDMI and VGA inputs with auto switching, DXE-CAT-RX3-A HDBaseT Receiver with dual relays for screen control and 2 x 35W amplifier, two SKR-22T 2ft x 2ft ceiling tile speakers and the DXB-8 8-button controller keypad.
The ORC-2 Kit adds Ethernet support at the wall plate and the ORC-3 Kit, in addition to the Ethernet port, adds an on-board USB 2.0 extender to the wall plate, allowing it to be used with interactive projectors and displays as well as USB cameras and other accessories. The DXB-8 control keypad comes pre-programmed for controlling the DXW-2 and DXE-CAT-RX3 audio. The only thing the user needs to do, says Aurora, is to drop in display on/off commands.
According to Aurora, all One Room – One Cable kits (which are designed for classrooms, conference rooms and other single room AV applications) ship in a single box, making deployment as easy as possible.
