After a long winter, spring is finally here and faster than you can say “Memorial Day Weekend,” it will be time for the annual InfoComm show in Las Vegas.
The Skinny: The Alhambra, Calif.-based manufacturer Opticomm, a division of EMCORE, has preemptively announced some of its InfoComm plans, and according to the company, a big part of its show plans involves its latest HDBaseT products.
The Specs: During the show, Opticomm-EMCORE (InfoComm booth #C7716) will showcase its stand alone C-Linx line of HDBaseT solutions, as well as its card-based, Optiva OTC series of HDBaseT insert cards.
Opticomm-EMCORE explains the products can be used to transmit media players, Blu-ray and DVD players, computers and video camera content over a single Cat-5, Cat-5e or Cat-6 cable. The C-Linx can be wall or table mounted, and they can transmit HDMI (including resolutions up to 3840x2160 at 60Hz), DVI, VGA and component video signals, along with stereo analog audio, digital audio, IR, and RS-232 control signals.
The Optiva OTC line of HDBaseT extenders are designed to allow electronics professionals to add HDMI, DVI and 3G-SDI extension via category cables through their clients’ existing Optiva chassis fiber cards. Opticomm-Emore adds that the cards are controllable through its OptivaView SNMP and Controller Cards, and the products are compatible with its C-Linx series products.
Solutions: Opticomm-EMCORE says the HDBaseT extenders can be used for digital signage, post-production video, jumbotrons, medical imaging, higher education, conference rooms, and other installations that require long-distance signal transmission.
