AUTHOR: Inavate

Magenta Research said visitors to Infocomm 08 will be amongst the first to view its next-generation MultiView UTP receivers. The products are now offered in 500ft, 600 ft, 1,200 ft and 2,000 ft stages.

Bob Michaels, vice president of Magenta, said: “As we celebrate our tenth anniversary, Magenta is especially proud to unveil a restructured MultiView receiver line, which was developed in direct response to customer needs. The MultiView Series now boasts even higher performance over longer distances with lower price points.”

Magenta said its flagship XR-2000 offers 1920x1200 (1080p) resolution at 2,000 feet, with no repeaters or splitters needed. AK600DP and AK1200DP receivers are rated for 1920x1200 (1080p) resolution video at their maximum respective distances.

MV500A and MV500S receivers serve up 1366x768 (720p) video resolution at 500 feet along with summed L/R audio and simplex/duplex serial respectively.

All AK and XR receivers are dual-port to enable daisy chaining of receivers and now offer a single knob to adjust for both cable length and (optional) skew compensation (Aku Comp II with 65ns of skew compensation). –SA (video + stereo audio + duplex RS-232), -SAP video + stereo audio + addressable Duplex RS-232) and RS-232 options are also available in the 600, 1,200 and 2,000-foot receiver tiers.
