The 94XT offers nine inputs: four HDMI with stereo audio; three HDMI via CatX cable; and two multi-format analogue inputs. On the output side, there are two HDMI outputs and two HDMI over CatX outputs—each scaled to match the resolution of the display. The 94XT incorporates intelligent EDID and HDCP management, says FSR, adding that the unit has two additional balanced stereo audio inputs, one unbalanced stereo audio output, and SPDIF outputs for each video output for additional flexibility. It can be controlled from the front panel, remotely via RS-232 or TCP/IP, or through the built-in web server.
July 27, 2013 - Extron Electronics’ PC 101 is a one input, one output AC power controller for providing remote power management for AV devices. When paired with a controller or control processor equipped with relays, the PC 101 can be configured to turn a device ON or OFF at scheduled times for security and energy-saving purposes. It features a contact closure control input and tally output, which can be used for visual feedback. The slim, compact form factor and IEC connectors on pigtails enable inline use with other devices and discrete mounting behind displays or other equipment. The PC 101 has a power rating of 100-240vac, 50/60Hz, allowing for universal compatibility.

July 23, 2013 - Omega’s new OM-ESW-100 series is a range of IEEE 802.3 layer two network unmanaged industrial ethernet switches with automatic speed, duplex and cable sensing. The series features construction capable of withstanding environmental extremes, says Omega, adding these Class I, Division 2 switches feature redundant power inputs, hardened metal enclosures, and 16kV port protection. Each switch is capable of auto negotiating 10/100 Mbps and half/full duplex communications.
July 17, 2013 - Signamax Connectivity Systems says it has improved the design of its RMF-series rackmount optical fiber adapter-plate panels to include an integrated mechanism for mounting cable management bar for routing and strain relief. Two types of optional cable management bar are available, and they mount to the back of the panel. RMF-series panels are a range of economy, high-density optical fiber patch panels accepting a variety of Signamax optical fiber adapter plates. They are available in 3- and 6-adapter-plate sizes (1 or 2 RMS), and are suitable where space is limited. These high-density panels provide increased termination density due to more compact adapter population, says the company, and can be supplied unloaded for field configuration or pre-loaded with adapters.
