The KanexPro 4×1 HDMI Switcher with audio extractor is an incredibly thin design, only 0.4 inches (11mm) thick, it weighs only .26 lbs. It is especially suited where space is confined and the need to present, collaborate and switch 4K UHD content to a single display exists. Auto-switching allows for simple, unmanaged operation in locations such as a lectern or under a conference table. When multiple inputs are active, the switching priority is configurable. Audio de-embedding capabilities allows users to extract stereo audio to an external amplifier for use with ceiling speakers. It enables switching of four HDMI source devices like Apple TV, tablets or PCs to one 4K UHD display without losing signal integrity and resolution. The 3.5mm stereo output delivers audio de-embedding & ARC capabilities supporting color depths up to 32 bit and internal EDID management for various display resolutions up to 3840×2160@30Hz. It is capable of transmitting HD 1080p up to 50 ft., features a high-bandwidth of 10.2 Gbps, is HDCP 1.4 compliant and auto-identifies input resolutions to match displays. It supports EDID management automatically to adapt to the resolution from the first detected display from port 1 to 4 and features an LED status for connection. It includes a worldwide power supply with an IR remote & RS-232 control.
Optically Seamless TecVision screens are now available up to 23 feet high.
“When we introduced TecVision we limited the sizes to 15 feet in viewing height because 15 feet was the largest we could provide without traditional seams,” according to Bob Mathes, AV/Video Sales & Marketing Manager for Draper, Inc. “We decided that we should leverage our seaming expertise along with our state of the art TecVision technology to come up with a way to make bigger surfaces.”
Instead of using traditional seams, or taking the very expensive approach of having a seamless substrate, Draper took a different approach.
“We decided to fuse a base substrate which resulted in a flatter base material with a stronger weld,” says Mathes. “With the ideal substrate perfected we could then use our TecVision formulation process to create a perfect and optically seamless viewing surface.”
