MONTREAL, QUEBEC - Two new brushed metal wall plate enclosures from MuxLab house advanced IP-based extenders that support HDMI 2.0b formats and 4K@60Hz resolutions in addition to improving overall aesthetics. Like all of MuxLab’s IP-based solutions, these Wall Plates can be configured and controlled remotely from any tablet, laptop or phone when combined with MuxLab’s ProDigital Network Controller (model 500811) and the new MuxControl App for Android and iOS. Both work in tandem to provide an intuitive, easy to operate GUI that simplifies the setup, access and management of any size AV over IPinstallation.

MuxLab’s HDMI/VGA/USB over IP PoE Wall Plate Transmitter, UHD-4K (model 500777-TX) is enclosed in a 2-gang wall plate and connects AV sources via HDMI, VGA and USB ports. When integrators pair it with an IP-based distribution system in which all connected equipment links through a local Ethernet network via a 1Gig Ethernet Switch, users can access all AVsources from all connected displays and other devices such as smart boards. Equipment can also be connected locally from up to 330 ft. (100m) using one CAT5e/6 cable. Users can switch between sources manually, automatically or remotely. HDMI 2.0 resolutions are supported up to 4K (3840×2160) @30Hz (4:4:4) or 4K@60Hz (4:2:0); VGA resolutions up to 1920x1200@60Hz come with 2CH audio. 


MuxLab’s HDMI/VGA over IP PoE Wall Plate Transmitter, UHD-4K (model 500773-TX) supports HDMI and VGA sources in a streamlined 2-gang wall plate enclosure. HDMI and VGA equipment can be delivered on an Ethernet network and extended up to 330 ft. (100m) from an Ethernet Switch using one CAT5e/6 cable. Local and remote selection of the sources is supported, and the unit may be set to automatic switching. Resolutions are supported up to 4K (3840×2160) @30Hz (4:4:4) or 4K@60Hz (4:2:0) for HDMI and 1920×1200@60Hz for VGA with 2CH audio.
