Peavey unveils video scaling and control for MediaMatrix

Peavey has expanded the capabilities of MediaMatrix. Systems integrators will be able to extend video switching and scaling to all control interfaces within MediaMatrix projects.

The new MediaMatrix family of video products—the VSC-101tn, VSC-101, VSC-51 and VCAT-HD video scalers and switchers—provides an integrated video solution for mid-level entertainment venues, houses of worship, conference rooms and educational facilities.

Through this new suite of products, users can configure and control video projects in MediaMatrix installations using the NION drag-and-drop interface for nControl, nTouch surface-mount panels and the NWare Mobile App.

The VSC-101 is a rack-mountable scaling presentation switcher that scales up to 10 video inputs to a simultaneous HDMI and VGA output. Video inputs include 4 x HDMI (1.4 compliant), 4 x VGA with 1/8-inch (3.5mm) stereo audio inputs, 1 x Component Video, 1 x S-Video, and 2 x Composite Video. The VSC-101tn also includes a twisted-pair output for connection to the included VCAT-HD-R via CAT-5e or CAT-6 shielded cable up to a distance of 70 meters. Both models include balanced audio outputs, and a 10-watt power amp for audio monitoring.

The VCAT-HD is an HDMI/IR/RS232 transmitter (VCAT-HD-T) and receiver (VCAT-HD-R) pair. The VCAT-HD uses HDBaseT technology to deliver a HDMI signal and control signal (IR & RS-232) over a single shielded, twisted-pair data cable, with a maximum transmission distance of up to 70 meters with CAT5e/CAT6 cable.
