"At ISE 2010, we aim to further solidify our reputation as one of the most reliable and innovative solutions providers that anticipates integrators' needs and delivers solutions right when they need them."
Digital Signage Player
Allows users to create playlists very easily from any computer. They can upload pre -recorded video, customize scrolling text and select music to be displayed publicly using the HDMI format. A built -in 2G flash drive holds all content, which can be uploaded through the Ethernet or USB connections. Scrolling text to accompany the video can be input and changed as often as necessary, so users can tailor their messages. A variety of fonts and sizes can be selected giving users additional flexibility.
Digital Signage Creator
Includes an intuitive layout program for the complete creation and customization of content to be displayed in digital signage installations. Users are limited only by their own creativity. The Digital Signage Creator accepts both HDMI and VGA with L/R audio inputs, with content output in both formats. Users can write scripts to control audio/video content, layer multiple videos and pull RSS feeds off the Internet, to name just a few.
DVI Video Wall Controller
This combination splitter/scaler provides one DVI input and four DVI outputs supporting high resolution video that can be scaled up to 1080p/60 full HD. The video is distributed in four quadrants, spread across four flat panel displays stacked in a 2x2 configuration. It offers independent border control to crop the image and eliminate display bezels for a precise alignment. Built -in noise reduction helps create a refined image.
DisplayPort KVM Switchers
The 2x1 DisplayPort KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) Switcher gives one display access to two computers; users access all data from the same keyboard/mouse connection, saving on equipment costs and increasing productivity. An IR remote or front -panel selector controls switching. The 4x2 DisplayPort KVM Switcher gives access to four computers using two mirrored displays, enabling an expanded desktop for greater access and control.
DisplayPort Booster Cables
These copper -based cables propel the DisplayPort signal up to 150 feet in distance to a remote display, supporting 3840x2400 video resolutions. Displays can be placed anywhere while computers are stored in a closet or remote location. Several different lengths are provided: 50; 75; 100; 125 and 150 feet. An optional power supply is included in case the computer cannot support the display at the extended distance, but is not always necessary.
C1M1 offers a truly significant reduction in transmission time in comparison to other communicators that rely on dial capture or data bus decoding. This can result in quicker response time to emergency situations which could save lives and assets. By providing both IP and cellular pathways, C1M1 provides the reliability installers are looking for in an alarm communicator. C1M1 eliminates port forwarding and extra fees for remote access. Installers can remotely upload/download programming changes to M1 controls over IP or cellular using ElkRP2. Consumers can control the M1 remotely via the free ElkLink mobile app and web portal, as well as eKeypad and M1 Touch Pro apps. Other IP-based software and interface partners can connect to the M1 control over the local network through C1M1. C1M1 also provides email/text notifications for arm, disarm, and alarm events. ELK-C1M14GSM supports GSM (AT&T/T-Mobile) networks and ELK-C1M1CDMA supports CDMA (Verizon) networks.
