Brea, CA – April 2010… Altinex, a leading manufacturer of Modular AV Solutions™, is pleased to announce the introduction of four new Showtime AV Presentation Systems: the Showtime System 800, Showtime System 900, Showtime System 1100, and Showtime System 1200. These new offerings—two entry level and two intermediate—make it easier than ever for school districts to take advantage of the features and benefits of the Altinex Showtime capabilities while operating within today’s limited budgets.

Altinex Showtime AV Presentation Systems make the process of using audio-visual equipment in the classroom easy and intuitive. These comprehensive, turnkey AV solutions are designed to provide educators with a powerful, yet affordable, multimedia-rich classroom experience. By making two entry-level (Showtime 800/900) and two intermediate (Showtime 1100/1200) systems available, Altinex now affords educators the opportunity to integrate existing equipment—such as loudspeakers—into their AV presentation setups, thereby eliminating any duplication of equipment and minimizing expenses in the process. Most importantly, all four new systems are field upgradable to larger setups with additional subassembly purchases, enabling school districts to maximize their AV investment as finances permit.

With the new Showtime 800/900 entry-level systems, Altinex provides two means of acquiring the “bare essentials? of a modern AV presentation system. These packages include the Showtime controller, a VGA/Audio input wall plate, a Composite Video/Audio input wall plate (System 900 only), and an interface box. Switching occurs at the projector. Audio is handled by the projector or by a secondary amplifier but is controlled via RS-232 through the controller. As with all Showtime systems, all system components communicate and are powered through low cost UTP/Cat-5 cable.

The Altinex intermediate packages (Showtime 1100/1200) are integrator models and provide the essential electronics while forgoing the loudspeakers, most cabling, sensors, and accessories that are provided in the company’s larger systems. Both the Showtime 1100 and 1200 systems include the Showtime controller, a switcher, a VGA/Audio input wall plate, a Composite Video/Audio input wall plate (System 1200 only), and select cables. Both packages also provide a 30 watt amplifier as well as a line level audio output—facilitating seamless integration with existing loudspeaker systems. Additional features of these intermediate systems include automatic signal sensing, IR (infrared) projector control, and the ability to raise/lower the projection screen. Further, the Showtime 1100 and 1200 systems also incorporate Altinex’ popular Room Combine feature, enabling two Showtime systems in adjacent rooms (such as a partitioned multipurpose room) to be operated independently as separate and discreet systems or joined together so one system controls both rooms and shares source devices.

Phil Hale, Altinex Vice President of Sales and Marketing, commented on the company’s new Showtime 800, 900, 1100, and 1200 AV Presentation systems. “The new Altinex entry- and intermediate-level Showtime systems deliver tremendous bang for the buck at a time when school budgets are under more pressure than ever. These cost-effective, fully field upgradable systems enable educators to start modestly and build sophisticated AV presentation systems as their finances permit. A well-designed AV system goes a long way toward creating a positive learning environment and makes the classroom an exciting place to learn and discover. I’m confident these systems are the right AV solution for challenging economic times and believe educators and integrators will both find the new Showtime packages a compelling choice.?

The new Altinex entry- and intermediate-level Showtime AV Presentation Systems carry the following MSRP pricing:

• Showtime 800: $749
• Showtime 900: $899
• Showtime 1100: $1995
• Showtime 1200: $2199

The Altinex Showtime 1100/1200 systems are available now. The Showtime 800/900 systems are scheduled to ship in May 2010.
