New Cat5 AV extenders

The new EMS Series of audio video extenders from Avocent delivers high resolution crystal clear video and CD quality digital stereo audio across installations up to 1000 ft away, the company says.

With the newly added RS232 support, video display panels can be controlled and interrogated remotely, making the EMS series the ideal professional digital signage solution. The most common form of a signage system relies upon central media player devices delivering video signals via CAT5 or higher cable. The Avocent EMS series of products have been specifically designed to deliver bright, accurate video with full saturation and crisp digital audio up to 1000 ft from the signal source.

The Avocent Emerge EMS2100T transmitter and EMS2100R receiver deliver point to point VGA video, audio, and serial data over standard CAT 5 cabling. Video performance up to 1600x1200 resolution and the units can apply a high level of signal compensation and brightness correction that insures a crisp, clear, and bright image. Control and manage your display devices with RS232 support. Each individual EMS2100R receiver supports two displays and two audio devices.

The Avocent Emerge EMS2110R VGA over CAT 5 receiver product has integrated skew correction with a 300MHz bandwidth, meaning that it is more than powerful enough to counteract the negative effects of the skew that occurs when extending video signals over distance. Having integrated de-skew capability enables quick and easy installation with the added security of adapting to changes in system.

The Avocent Emerge EMS2400T extends a single high-resolution video, high fidelity audio and RS232 signals to 4 different receivers. The EMS2400T has support for a local port to connect a local screen, speakers and serial device. The EMS2400T additionally supports cascading which enables multiple transmitters to be linked together offering unlimited enterprise expansion.
