Fremont, CA – January 2018… Arista Corporation, recognized globally as a leading manufacturer of video wall LCD displays, AV extenders, matrix switchers, AV MultiViewers, and related products for the AV installation and industrial markets, is pleased to announce the ARD-1007-A01-TX HDBaseT Transmitter. Incorporating a 3 x 1 switcher for use with HDMI, DVI, and VGA video sources, the new ARD-1007-A01-TX is designed to transmit analog video to digital HDMI displays, enabling advanced HDMI display devices to be used with legacy VGA sources in conjunction with control signals such as RS-232, USB, and IR (infrared).
The Arista ARD-1007-A01-TX incorporates HDBaseT technology, which enables the optimized delivery of uncompressed, high-definition digital media. HDBaseT accomplishes this while also eliminating multiple cable runs and the signal degradation that can occur with long runs using traditional VGA and HDMI cables. Cost-effective and easy-to-terminate category cable(Cat5e/Cat6)) also provides additional integration benefits.
The ARD-1007-A01-TX features HDMI and DVI inputs as well as a VGA input plus a 3.5mm audio input connector. The unit also incorporates a Power over HDBaseT output. The ARD-1007-A01-TX combines the benefits of a switcher with built-in autoswitching along with the advantages of long-distance HDBaseT signal extension over a single Cat 5e/6 cable. The ARD-1007-A01-TX supports HDMI video signals up to 1080p/60Hz with embedded audio. VGA input signals up to 1920 x 1200 resolution can be extended up to 330 feet (100 meters).
Paul Shu, President of Arista Corporation, commented on the company’s new ARD-1007-A01-TX HDBaseT Transmitter, “The ARD-1007-A01-TX provides Power over Ethernet to drive the HDBaseT receiver. This versatile transmitter provides input access for up to three devices with controls for input selection—making it ideal for long distance video transmission in corporate or educational and control room settings using analog VGA and digital HDMI/DVI video sources. Given its ability to interface with both newer and legacy video sources, I’m confident integrators will find this to be a versatile solution to many of the commonly encountered challenges in today’s AV installations.”
The Arista ARD-1007-A01-TX HDBaseT Transmitter carries a MSRP of $439.00. It is available now.
