Altinex introduced the redesigned MX2106AV 2-In/1-Out VGA Auto Plus Audio switcher with a 1x2amplifier. The unit has a compact footprint that allows it to be mounted out of sight underneath a table or on the side of a lectern, according to company officials.

The MX2106AV can drive two large displays simultaneously, and features plug-and-play memory to ensure the correct display resolution, as well as automatic switching and the ability to handle VGA through UXGA computer signal formats and HDTV resolutions from 480i to 1080p. Two sets of 3.5 mm female inputs and outputs provide a means for audio.

The switcher defaults to its primary input 1 upon power up. When input 2 detects an incoming signal, it automatically overrides input 1 and sends video to the output. The Input Select/RS-232 input achieves the override switching. The same input can be controlled via RS-232, allowing the user to make selections from other devices, such as a touch screen controller.

"This is the ideal solution for a wide range of small meeting and presentation spaces where one or two computers will be used with one or two displays," said Jack Gershfeld, Altinex president and CEO, in a statement. "The MX2106AV facilitates automatic switching between the two sources, yet provides the flexibility to manually control source selection via a simple contact closure or through more sophisticated means, such as touch screen controllers. "

The MX2106AV is currently available as a stand-alone unit or can be bundled with the RC5208CC contact closure switch box. The MSRP is $309 for the MX2106AV and $355 for the MX2106AV-pack.
