ALTINEX INTRODUCES DA103-217 VGA LINE DRIVER/RECEIVER

da103-217_hi.jpgBrea, CA – January 2009… Altinex, recognized globally as a leading manufacturer of Modular AV Signal Management Solutions™, is pleased to introduce the DA103-217 VGA Line Driver/Receiver. Designed to address many common video issues encountered during AV system installations, this versatile tool amplifies video and sync signals when deployed as a line driver and, when installed as a receiver, the unit’s integrated equalization and gain controls make it possible to recover degraded VGA signals. With its compact form factor, the DA103-217 can easily be placed out of sight behind a wall-mounted video display or underneath a conference table—enabling the most sophisticated conference/training facilities to maintain a clean, uncluttered appearance.

The new Altinex DA103-217 is the ideal solution to many common video challenges, including smeared video, unstable sync, low image contrast, and mismatched resolution between a laptop computer and a video display. When used as a line driver, the DA103-217 amplifies video and sync signals and transmits them more than 150ft over VGA coaxial cable while maintaining 1600 x 1200 resolution. Individual adjustments enable users to improve image quality and compensate for decreased contrast level.

When used as a VGA line driver, the DA103-217 has circuitry to buffer EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) signals from a computer and will transmit them 150ft to a display. Without the buffer, these signals can be transmitted only 25ft, thus losing the monitor’s information for longer cable lengths. By buffering EDID signals inside the DA103-217, a laptop computer connected to a display is able to properly read the monitor’s resolution and adjust its video card output for the correct display format and resolution.

When the DA103-217 is installed as a receiver, the built-in equalization control and grain control circuitry makes it possible to recover degraded VGA signals as far as 250ft away. The automatic gain control (AGC) feature further improves the display quality by automatically adjusting any horizontal and vertical sync signals coming in and converting them to the proper format for the display. Instead of using the more common 3-position slide switch, the DA103-217 is equipped with continuous adjustment controls to help users find the optimum setting for a specific cable length. For extra long cable lengths, two DA103-217s can be interconnected to extend the distance to over 400ft.

Altinex President and CEO Jack Gershfeld commented on the company’s new DA103-217 VGA Line Driver/Receiver. “The Altinex DA103-217 is a versatile AV tool that is easy to use and provides a wealth of capabilities to resolve many common challenges during a typical AV system installation,? said Gershfeld. “With separate equalization and gain controls, this unit provides great flexibility in determining just the right amount of adjustment required. Automatic gain control for sync signals helps the user to zero in on a stable portion of the sync signal for rock steady images. In addition, its ability to transmit EDID over 150ft and to provide local display emulation makes the DA103-217 an excellent choice for a wide range of AV installations.?

The Altinex DA103-217 is housed in a robust, all-metal enclosure and ships with both an 18-inch Male to Male VGA cable and a low profile external power adaptor. The DA103-217 VGA Line Driver/Receiver carries a MSRP of $345. The unit will be available by mid February, 2009.
