New Active Balanced products distribute Hi -Def Video and three analog audio channels plus control signals over Cat -5



30 Year Logo WhiteMountlake Terrace, WA - Cat -5 wire is now the preferred method for connecting Flat Panel display units to source components with AudioControl's introduction of the Active Balanced BVD -30 sender and BVR -30 receiver.  Together, the BVD -30 and BVR -30 carry High -Definition Component Video, three channels of Audio (L, C, R), plus two control signals up to 1000 feet in an Active (powered) balanced format over Cat -5 wire, rejecting noise and eliminating signal degradation.



'The new BVD -30 and BVR -30 will simplify the installation of a flat panel television by providing all the audio, video, and control signals via Cat -5,' explains Tom Walker, AudioControl President. 'Flat panel displays are easily mounted in a variety of locations, but there's never been a convenient and reliable way to feed them high -quality picture and multi -channel sound. Cat -5 is inexpensive, flexible, and small, making it the optimal and reliable choice for high quality signal transmission. Our Active Balanced Technology exploits these features to the benefit of the consumer and the installer.'



Superior audio and video signals are delivered through AudioControl's Active Balanced Technology, which uses powered devices on both the sending and receiving end to prevent the quality loss inherent in passive devices.  The BVD -30 is the Active Driver, accepting Component Video, three channels of analog or digital audio, and two bi -directional pass -through jacks for control signals.  Each signal is converted into a balanced format, boosted to compensate for the length of the cable, and sent up to 1000 feet over two Cat -5 cables to the BVR -30 In -wall Receiver.  The result is a reliable signal of perfect quality.



The high -bandwidth component video inputs of the BVD -30 are ideal for sending high -definition video, even signals with resolutions of 1080p or better.  Three audio channels open the door to sending stereo audio, LCR audio, digital audio, or auxiliary audio devices.  The two control connections are ideal for bi -directional IR communication, 12 -volt turn -on, or other control signal transmissions.  The BVR -30 also includes a signal -sensing remote 12 -volt trigger when a video signal is present, ideal for activating motorized mounts or automating devices.



The BVD -30 and BVR -30 will begin shipping to authorized AudioControl custom installation dealers in August 2007.
