Avocent introduces new wireless distribution product that simplifies A/V installations

Avocent has introduced a new model of the Emerge MPX extender, the MPX1500T HD multipoint extender transmitter, which wirelessly distributes HD content from a source to multiple destinations. Avocent’s wireless HD video distribution system can change the way digital signage systems are being deployed. For the integrator, wireless video distribution allows a turnkey system to be developed, prestaged, and then dropped into place at the client’s site.

The MPX1500T transmitter has added new functionality for centrally managing the MPX extender and attached devices over the Internet, such as turning displays on or off. The A/V infrastructure created by the MPX extenders can be centrally accessed and controlled through a Web management interface. This latest version of the MPX extender expands the status information available, enabling not only general troubleshooting of connections but more specific details to ensure uptime and reliability. A/V and IT managers can now connect to each individual transmitter and receiver to reboot, update, adjust the luminance and chrominance, change the frequency the radio transmits and various other tuning parameters. The MPX1500T transmitter has a universal media port based on a DVI connector. Supporting both digital and analog video signals allows the MPX to use DVI, HDMI or VGA signals. The product can even perform a VGA-to-DVI conversion if the source is a computer and the display needs to be digital.
