Magenta AK1200DP - Multiview CAT5 Distribution System
Magenta Research’s MultiView AK1200DP Series receiver handles WUXGA (1920x1200) 1080p resolution video at 600 feet (183 meters) and 1,200 feet (366 meters) respectively. All analog video types are supported; RGBHV, YUV, Y Pb Pr, component, composite, Y/C, S-video, HDTV, PAL, SECAM or RGBS.
Standard configurations also offer a choice between L/R summed audio or SPDIF digital audio or simplex serial (RS-232) alongside analog video. Both receiver models feature a standard UTP output, in order to facilitate the daisy-chaining of up to 12 MultiView receivers. This feature, when combined with a MultiView 9D distribution amplifier, enables the distribution of a single-source to hundreds of displays.
All adjustment controls on the AK1200DP have been simplified for vastly-improved ease-of-use, beginning with (the optional) AkuComp II skew compensation (required when skew-free cabling is not used). A knob
is now used to adjust skew-delay with colored LEDs on the unit indicating which color is being delayed. Skew comp has also been increased to 65ns. The same knob, when pressed, cycles from skew adjustment to cable EQ, which is used to adjust for actual UTP cable length.
AK1200DP receivers feature full video-format agility. An external switch, when turned on, offers an auto-detect feature to differentiate between RGBHV and non-RGBHV sources.
All video format and fourth-pair configurations (audio/serial) are field configurable.
