Designed as a 19-inch, 1RU rack mount chassis that can house two inter-connected modules, the RS-123 is a versatile solution to the challenges of displaying digital signage over considerable distance.
The RS-123 is available in two configurations: transmitter and receiver. The signal transmitter configuration combines the Arista ARD-1006-A07-TX transmitter with the company’s MicroBox-1100A-E01 computer module. With the HDBaseT 2.0 transmitter and computer installed in the RS-123 chassis, the computer display can be extended up to 330 feet away. The ARD-1006-A31-TX AV over IP transmitter and the MicroBox-1100A-E01 computer can be used to switch the computer display to different LCD monitors. If a distance greater than 330 feet is required, the ARD-1006-B31-TX transmitter module with an optical fiber interface can be installed in the RS-123 chassis as an option in leu of the ARD-1006-A31-TX.
For the receiver configuration, the RS-123 configuration combines the Arista ARD-1006-A07-RX receiver with the company’s AMP-1006-S04 splitter module. With the HDBaseT 2.0 receiver and splitter installed in the RS-123, the system provides the ability to display a remote video signal to multiple LCD monitors. If the ability to display a selected video source from among multiple video sources onto multiple LCD monitors is required, the RS-123 chassis can be configured with the ARD-1006-A31-RX AV over IP receiver and the AMP-1006-S04 splitter module. If a distance greater than 330 feet is required, the RS-123 chassis can be outfitted with Arista’s ARD-1006-B31-RX receiver module with fiber interface in leu of the ARD-1006-A31-RX. The AMP-1006-S04-SDI optional module is available when connecting to multiple SDI monitors is needed.
Paul Shu, President of Arista Corporation, commented on the company’s RS-123 Rack Mount HDBaseT Extender / Computer, “Today’s digital signage applications require the flexibility to address a wide range of configurations in terms of their signal sources, the types of signal recognized, and the distance over which these signals must travel. With our Universal Rack Mount Extender, RS-123, we offer a versatile solution that enables integrators to configure both the transmit and receive sides of the video system requirements to fit today's highly dynamic AV environments. I believe the versatility provided by the RS-123 and its available swappable modules will be well received.”
The Arista RS-123 Rack Mount HDBaseT Extender / Computer chassis carries an MSRP starting from $600. All products are expected to be available Q3, 2018.
