NEW – Tahoma Series of Multiviewers with built-in CATx Extender
The Tahoma series of Multiviewers currently includes three platforms (LE4, LE16, LE32) to meet a variety of customers’ multi-format visual monitoring requirements. This 3G-ready family auto-detects 4 to 32 video inputs (HD/SD-SDI/Composite), supports DVI, HDMI and VGA outputs up to 2048×1080 (incl. 1080P), and includes built-in video and audio alarm detection. The Tahoma series incorporates a built-in CATx extender, which allows digital 1080P signals to be extended up to 115 feet. The unique combination of a Multiviewer and built-in CATx extender in a single solution helps reduce overall equipment costs and eliminates any equipment compatibility issues that may arise.

Apantac’s skin technology lets users personalize their on-screen display with any graphics tool. Video windows on the display may include multiple labels, and support UMD, OMD, IMD and standalone labels. Tahoma Multiviewers include 16 channels of embedded audio per input with 4 channels of discrete analog or digital audio as an option. Audio can be associated with the video windows or work as standalone audio meters.

The front panel of the Tahoma series also offers a unique feature-set that includes a headphone jack with volume adjustment for audio monitoring. And, front panel buttons enable users to quickly recall presets.

NEW – KVM Switches with built-in CATx Extender
Also showing for the first time is the MD HOOD family of KVM Switches with built-in CATx Extenders. These dual-interfaced (PS2 and USB) switches allow a user to control up to 8 or 16 computers simultaneously. Each input can be assigned a user name and password to enable enhanced security. The built-in CATx extender permits the control console of the KVM switch to be placed up to 650 feet away from the computer CPUs.
