tvONE has announced a price reduction for the Voyager series, which enables pro-AV and digital signage customers to distribute multi-format high-bandwidth signals over fibre.
“The pro-AV and digital signage industries have long awaited a cost-effective solution to simplify the integration of digital and analogue video and peripheral signals into a single platform that supports HDCP, is dependable, easy to configure and install, with high-density options.” said Mark Armon, Magenta product manager. “With our new lower price level, integrators and users can now choose between traditional copper and fibre-based solutions on functionality and not price alone.”
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, and USB 2.0 signals over fibre at distances up to 30km.
The Voyager series uses a modular building block approach to deliver hundreds of different product configurations with numerous video and auxiliary signal types, fibre types and component types such as n-port transmitters, daisy-chain receivers and 8×8 to 320×320 scalable matrix switchers.
Voyager’s architecture allows each transmitter and receiver to support a wide variety of analogue and digital video formats through plug-and-play field-interchangeable modules. The ability to easily field configure, upgrade and interchange signal types including video formats greatly increases flexibility in specification, procurement, installation and troubleshooting. With built in auto format conversion and delay-free HDCP switching, sources and displays of all supported video types including HDMI, DVI, VGA can be interconnected on the same network without the need for external converters, thereby reducing both cost and the number of potential failure points.
