â€¢ DVI Switches-VS261/VS461 — These 2- and 4-port DVI switches set new standards of excellence in multimedia functionality by combining a Digital Visual Interface (DVI) Video Switch with quality stereo audio. The VS261 and VS461 eliminate the need for separate display and audio setups as well as offer the capability to switch among two media sources and enjoy the output on a single DVI display and set of multimedia speakers.
â€¢ VGA Video Switch-VS881– this 8-port video switch allows users to switch between eight different computersâ€™ video signals using a single VGA display. The VS881 also serves as a signal booster, increasing the distance of the video signal up to 215 feet. A wireless remote offers instant switching between users. The unit is ideal for meetings and conferences with multiple presenters.
The following are sample scenarios depicting the use of ATENâ€™s new AV product line:
â€¢ Film Industry: Film editors typically use two monitors to compare/contrast scenes as they edit. The new units simplify this process by allowing editors to switch back and forth between monitors.
â€¢ Television Broadcast: For TV programs such as reality programs that use multiple or remote cameras, the new products offer the capability to switch angle views between cameras.
â€¢ Sports Bars/Restaurants: For establishments that broadcast sports or other programs, the new units allow switching between the MLB World Series or the World Series of Poker on different screens.
â€œWith the launch of these new units and expansion of our entire line of video products, we are providing affordable, scalable and easy-to-use solutions that fully support the latest display technologies,â€? added Yang.
