Arista targets event production with HDMI switcher, splitter
Arista Corporation has announced the AVC-1006-S1H4 SDI/HDMI switcher and quad HDMI output splitter.
The product is designed for event production where an SDI or HDMI video signal is to be displayed on multiple large format LCD screens.
When used with Arista’s ADM-2155BP 55-in multitouch LCD display, the new AVC-1006-S1H4 turns the ADM-2155BP into a multifunctional large format stage monitor that can accept either SDI or HDMI video signals. In addition, up to four additional large screen displays with HDMI inputs can display the same video content that is shown on the stage monitor (ADM-2155BP). The AVC-1006-S1H4 also provides an SDI loopback that can be used to connect to a small SDI monitor positioned closer to the presenter.
The AVC-1006-S1H4 can be integrated with Arista’s RS-121 1RU Rackmount Computer to form the RS-121-S1H4 that adds SDI/HDMI switching and HDMI output splitter functionality to a convenient form factor housing a Windows PC. In this configuration, the RS-121-S1H4 adds SDI/HDMI switcher capability and provides up to five HDMI outputs. The RS-121-S1H4 can be rack mounted.
Arista’s AVC-1006-S1H4 can also be plugged into the company’s RS-123 Universal Rackmount Extender using either the ARD-1006-A07-TX transmitter card or, for distances over 100m, the ARD-1006-B31-TX optical fibre transmitter card. This configuration enables a local SDI or HDMI source to be displayed on up to four large screen TVs on stage plus an optional SDI monitor close to presenter if an SDI video source is connected. Further, this configuration can also serve as a video extension to a remote site up to 100m (ARD-1006-A07-TX) or more than 300m (ARD-1006-B31-TX).
