Avocent Introduces IEEE802.11n Based HD Video Extension and Distribution System

Avocent announces the MPX1550 wireless extender. This product combines Avocent's MPX1500 wireless video distribution technology with IEEE802.11n MIMO-based radios, thereby raising the bar for wireless HD video distribution systems in terms of visual acuity, transmission distance, and noise immunity. With the MPX1550 system, deployment of a single stream of media to many displays can be accomplished in minutes. Unlike multiple source devices, however, video and audio remain in lockstep across all displays, failure-prone moving parts are kept to a minimum, and software-licensing costs are greatly reduced. Equally important, all devices in the media network are remotely manageable using the MPX1550 extender's onboard Web interface, which is accessible via a dedicated control LAN interface. They are available this month at a MSRP of $1,145 each. Visit www.avocent.com.
