ERLANGER, KY, September 3, 2015 - tvONE (www.tvone.com), a long-time developer and supplier of high performance video processing equipment, today announced a new price point for the Voyager series which enables pro-AV and digital signage customers to distribute multi-format high-bandwidth signals over fiber.
Magenta's Voyager Fiber Optic Signal Distribution Platform is an interoperable set of transmitters, receivers, distribution amplifiers and matrix switchers, which enables any end to end configuration for extension and switching of uncompressed multi-format video and audio, RS-232, and USB 2.0 signals over fiber at distances up to 16.75MI/30KM.
The pro-AV and digital signage industries have long awaited a cost effective solution to simplify the integration of digital and analog video and peripheral signals into a single platform that supports HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), is dependable, easy to configure and install, with high-density options. "With our new, lower price level," said Mark Armon, Magenta Product Manager, "integrators and users can now choose between traditional copper and fiber based solutions on functionality and not price alone."
The Voyager's innovative architecture allows each transmitter and receiver to support a wide variety of analog and digital video formats through plug and play field interchangeable modules. The ability to easily field configure, upgrade and interchange signal types including video formats greatly increases flexibility in specification, procurement, installation and troubleshooting. With built in auto format conversion and delay free HDCP switching, sources and displays of all supported video types including HDMI, DVI, VGA can be interconnected on the same network without the need for external converters, thereby reducing both cost and the number of potential failure points.
The Voyager series uses a modular building block approach to deliver hundreds of different product configurations with numerous video and auxiliary signal types, fiber types and component types such as n-port transmitters, daisy-chain receivers and 8x8 to 320x320 scalable matrix switchers.
