Belkin Announces General Availability of Digital Signage Connectivity Solutions for Easy-to-Install, Higher-Resolution Performance over Longer Distances

Belkin’s new AV360™ Modular AV System and CAT5e Extenders offer faster installations and high-performance digital content distribution

(InfoComm, Orlando, FL) – Belkin today announced the general availability of its new AV360 Modular AV System and CAT5e Extender connectivity solutions that enable fast digital-signage installations at longer distances and higher resolutions.

Designed for use in conference rooms, higher education, and hotels, the Belkin system can support video displays of up to 1080p at 100 meters and up to UXGA resolution at 300 meters.

Performance and reliability are essential concerns for a successful installation, and Belkin AV360 delivers higher resolutions over longer distances than competing solutions. Using a smart modular system of cables and wall plates, AV360 provides a simple, color-coded, plug-and-play connection for digital-signage and audiovisual solutions. Its pull cap is designed to rotate 360 degrees to enable easy routing from any angle while also withstanding up to 90 pounds of pulling force.

Belkin CAT5e Extenders deliver the continuous uptime, long distances, and high resolutions that installers require. They provide long-distance, point-to-point audiovisual connections between content-management systems and public displays. Featuring better performance over greater distances, the CAT5e solution runs HDCP-compliant HDMI™ technology over a single CAT5e cable.

To schedule a meeting with Belkin for live product demonstrations and to discuss the digital-signage offerings in more detail, contact Denise Nelson at Ventana Public Relations, denise.nelson@ventanapr.com or (925) 858-5198.
