Voyager series switchers from Magenta

Magenta Research has announced the Voyager series, which uses its recently announced FiberMax Engine technology, enabling pro-AV and digital signage customers to distribute multi-format high-bandwidth signals over fibre.

Magenta’s Voyager fibre optic signal distribution platform is an interoperable set of transmitters, receivers, distribution amplifiers and matrix switchers, which enables any end to end configuration for extension and switching of uncompressed multi-format video and audio, RS-232, IR and 480 Mbps USB 2.0 signals over fibre at distances up to 16.75MI/30KM.
Magenta’s Flex-VCA architecture allows each Voyager transmitter and receiver to support a wide variety of analogue and digital video formats through plug and play field interchangeable modules.
With built in auto format conversion and delay free HDCP switching, sources and displays of all supported video types including HDMI, DVI, DisplayPort, VGA and SDI can be interconnected on the same network without the need for external converters, thereby reducing both cost and the number of potential failure points.
The Voyager series uses a modular building block approach to deliver different product configurations with numerous video and auxiliary signal types, fibre types and component types such as n-port transmitters, daisy-chain receivers, 1x7 distribution amplifiers and 8x8 to 320x320 scalable matrix switchers.
