Apantac’s MT HOOD signal processing series has been designed to provide users with a flexible and innovative AV / IT technology solution for signal extension and processing. The MT HOOD product family allows you to extend HDMI, DVI, VGA, KVM and audio signals up to 1,000 feet using a single CATX cable, giving you the assurance that you will not loose any detail in your high definition image. The MT HOOD extenders regenerate HD video and digital audio from a source and transit it to the extended projectors or monitors. They are plug-and-play solutions requiring no software and can be cascaded for future expansion. MT HOOD is an ideal solution for professional applications that require the transmission of HD or high resolution computer, video and audio signals.

The MT HOOD line also includes 8 or 16-port KVM Switches and 4x8 HDMI Matrix Switchers both with built-in CATx extenders.

Apantac’s products integrate with other industry-standard components of a complete AV and IT system such as displays, sources, networks, servers, and control systems. The MT HOOD series is an idea solution for extending HDMI, DVI, VGA and KVM signals in a virtually unlimited number of applications. A few examples include; presentations in show rooms, board rooms, trade shows and digital signage displays, data broadcasting such as news, stock tickers, sports results, travel information, and education such as schools or training facilities and a variety of government video applications.
