Altinex’s DA103-302 Ditto-Amp HDMI distribution amplifier, frequently called a splitter, supports HDMI Version 1.3b with embedded high-bandwidth digital content protection V1.0 and V1.1. Featuring an integrated 20- inch, 19-Pin male HDMI cable for direct connection to source devices such as a Bluray disc player, the Ditto-Amp enables one device to present simultaneous feeds to two separate HDMI displays with computer resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 and HDTV formats ranging from 480p to 1080p at distances up to 60 feet on each output.


Extron Electronics’ VN-Matrix 200 Series and VN-Matrix 300 Series encoders and decoders allow for real-time transmission of high-resolution audiovisual content across standard IP networks. Unveiled under the Extron banner for the first time since the acquisition of the products division of Electrosonic, the VN-Matrix Series is designed for live viewing, collaboration, storage, and playback of high quality AV signals. With the scalable VN-Matrix system, a user can start small and add additional encoders and decoders later to turn an IP network into a virtual routing matrix switcher that is practically limitless in size. The VN-Matrix 200 Series enables streaming of DVI and RGB video, while the VNMatrix 300 Series supports SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI video.


The Crestron V-Panel is designed to be a 1080p high definition touchpanel, and can function as both a touchpanel control interface and flat panel HD display. Featuring VESA mount installation in addition to desktop/tilt and flush wall mount options, V-Panels are said to be positioned virtually anywhere. V-Panels can integrate VoIP communications, embedded PC applications, USBHID control, and onscreen annotation, delivering a complete digital media, control and communication solution. With Crestron DigitalMedia connectivity, protected, uncompressed HD signals can be displayed on touchpanels for the first time. The design of the V-Panel achieves multiple advantages by separating the graphics engine hardware from the touchpanel display.
