NEW MILFORD, CT--Magenta Research announced the new Cyan by Magenta brand, a new series of signal extension products for the digital signage market.

Powered by technology derived from Magenta’s best-in-class commercial AV signal distribution range, Cyan by Magenta products deliver cost-effective solutions for applications requiring basic point-to-point extension over shorter distances and with smaller distribution footprints. Cyan by Magenta includes real time signal extension kits for HDMI, DVI, VGA, YUV (component), and audio.

“With the declining costs of displays, the use of digital signage is expanding to include simpler, lower budget installations,” said Magenta vice president Bob Michaels. “Cyan by Magenta expands Magenta’s product portfolio to include a series of products targeted towards basic signal extension requirements, while meeting the performance and quality long associated with the Magenta name.”
