Avocent unveils Emerge UNI-8dB directional antenna

Avocent has added a new accessory for the EWMS1000 wireless media streamer, the Emerge UNI-8dB directional antenna for line-of-sight extended distance capability.

The Avocent directional antenna provides extended range operation by focusing the energy of the antenna signal into an intensified unidirectional beam. In line-of-sight applications the directional antenna allows the wireless media streamer receiver to be placed up to 1000ft from the transmitter. Applications requiring extended distance benefit from using the directional antenna because it allows the user to install a display system without running wires around a room, or incur the expense of having to open walls to run conduit.

The Avocent Emerge UNI-8dB directional antenna package comes with two antennas, one antenna for the EWMS1000 transmitter and a second antenna for the EWMS1000 receiver. The antennas work in the 802.11a band and provide frequency ranges of 5.150GHz to 5.825GHz.
