ATEN Introduces New Cat 5 Audio/Video Extender System

VE200 provides dual audio/video output and extends transmission distance up to 150m

Taipei, Taiwan - ATEN International, a leading designer and manufacturer of advanced connectivity solutions, today introduced the VE200 Audio/Video Extender from its VanCryst(TM) Professional A/V Solutions range. The VE200 allows users to extend the distance between the computer system and the display monitor by up to 150m for video resolutions of 1600 x 1200@60Hz.

The VE200 Audio/Video Extender System uses Cat 5e cable to connect a local transmitting unit (VE200L) and a remote receiving unit (VE200R). Cat 5e cabling eliminates bulky traditional cables, and makes for a neat, efficient, uncluttered work environment. With dual video/audio output, the VE200 supports one local and two remote displays, and offers high quality video up to 1920x1200@60Hz at 30m, 1600x1200@60Hz at 150m, and 1280x1024@60Hz at 200m. The VE200 also provides two gain control modes for the sharpest picture quality, and video gain and compensation that are adjustable via an OSD.

For convenient usage, the VE200 is equipped with an IR receiver to provide quick and easy video quality adjustment, and also an IR remote control for screen on/off and video adjustment at the remote site. In addition, it provides two RS-232 channels for selection which allows touch screens to be included in the installation, which is especially suitable for interactive service applications.

The VE200 Audio/Video Extender System is ideal for installations where the display needs to reside in public view, but the system equipment can be safely tucked away. The Extender System is also useful for control and security purposes, where the system unit is in a secure area while the display is located in an area that is convenient for viewing. Other useful applications for the VE200 Audio/Video Extender System include: finance (the remote display of stock market information), education (the remote display of lectures and lessons to lecture halls and classrooms), and business (the remote display of addresses to overflow rooms, video conferencing, and demos).

The VE200 Audio/Video Extender System allows complete flexibility in installation set up, supporting various extension distances and a wide number of displays. When combined in an installation with ATEN's VB552 (VGA Over Cat 5 Repeater), the transmission distance can be even longer, up to 450m. In addition, to enhance the video quality in a long distance installation, the VE510 Video Synchronizer can also be integrated to compensate for signal delay. VE200R can also be combined in an installation with ATEN's Media Distribution Solution.
