Middleton, WI- Intelix LLC, U.S. manufacturer of audio/video equipment and software, recently announced the release of the DIGI-VGASD-T4R, a professional-grade active balun set which distributes a single VGA video and stereo audio source to four remote destinations via a single twisted pair cable. In addition, the system also extends RS232 and IR control signals over the same structured cable, thereby consolidating multiple bulky cable runs.
“Consolidating cable runs is a major issue for audio-visual installers,” explains Cameron Smith, Intelix National Sales and Marketing Manager. “Historically, audio and video required separate runs, and if you were transmitting VGA you could expect fairly bulky cable. Baluns simplified the process by routing audio and video—even high-definition—over a single, inexpensive twisted pair cable. However, distributing IR or RS232 for control remained an issue and often a separate pull was needed. The Intelix DIGI-VGASD series solves the problem, allowing VGA, stereo audio, and IR/RS232 transmission over a single unshielded Cat 5 or Cat 6 cable.”
The DIGI-VGASD-T4R features 1600x1200 VGA video performance, high-fidelity 20Hz to 20kHz audio performance, and IR or bi-directional RS232 extension up to 350 feet. In addition, the DIGI-VGASD-T4R send balun features local monitor support and the DIGI-VGASD-T4R receive balun features dual outputs and built-in video equalization ensuring skew-free video performance. The system is linkable for additional remote destinations.
Each balun set includes one 1x4 distribution amplifier send unit, one receive unit, and two power supplies. Additional modular or wallplate receive baluns may be purchased separately.
All components are manufactured in the United States.
Retail price for the Intelix DIGI-VGASD-T4R is $799.95. Retail price for additional receive baluns start at $349.95.
