Sparta, N.J., (April 14, 2008) – RTcom USA Inc., provider of digital connectivity solutions for professional and consumer audio-visual and personal computer systems, announced the innovation of the world’s first Expandable Digital Matrix Router - EDM-1818M. The new router simultaneously supports multiple digital video formats, allowing integrators to use a single device for all digital signal types instead of a separate matrix switcher for each signal type. Prior to the creation of the Expandable Digital Matrix Router, the industry’s multiple digital interfaces could not be supported by a single device. This required consultants and system designers to design overly complex and very costly systems. The Expandable Digital Matrix Router supports most digital formats including: Digital Video Interface (DVI), High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI), Secure Digital Interface (SDI) and Display Port.The EDM-1818M features a flexible back plane with slots for modular input/output cards, which allow prompt availability for any interface. The Expandable Matrix Router is user-configurable, so input/output cards may be replaced at any time after initial purchase. “At RTcom we strive to provide our users with innovative solutions to both consumer and professional integration applications,� said Joon Ryu, president of RTcom USA. “The Expandable Matrix Router is a revolutionary technology that allows users the ease and flexibility of accessing all digital interfaces using one product.� Among the Expandable Digital Matrix Router’s other features are: � Several user interface options: RS-232C, LAN(TCP/IP)Control, and from the integrated touch panel � HDCP compliant � Conforms to DVI 1.0, HDMI Ver1.3a and DISPLAY PORT V1.1 � Built-in Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) read function, with Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory (EEPROM), to save display EDID data. The unit also supports non-VESA resolutions, including projectors with unique resolutions. This function is easy to set up by the user � Built-in noise protection circuits in each input and output port The Expandable Digital Matrix Router is available now at an MSRP of $39.999.00, fully equipped with input/output cards, and can be purchased through Aurora Multimedia at (732) 591-5800 or
