The TV One-task product line grows again with the addition of six new v1.3 HDMI products to its inventory consisting of two Switchers and four Distribution Amplifiers. These are not ordinary units, but are the first products designed expressly for the demanding professional market. Features like front panel status indication of input signal presence and HDCP presence, accommodation of HDMI cables with locking connectors, RS-232 control of the switchers, optional rackmount kits, separate audio and advanced EDID handling set these units apart from the field.
The two new HDMI Switchers are the 1T-SX-632, which switches between two inputs and the 1T-SX-634, which switches up to four inputs. They include built in Signal Enhancement to enable long cable runs that can be turned off when not required. Both models are controlled via the front panel buttons, the included Infrared Remote Control or the standard RS-232 interface.
The new Distribution Amplifiers consist of the 1T-DA-652, which distributes two signals, the 1T-DA-654 which distributes four signals, 1T-DA-664 which distributes four signals with separate audio distribution via integral analog stereo and S/PDIF coaxial audio and the 1T-DA-658 which distributes eight signals. All models maintain the signal components present within the encoded signal and are version 1.3 compliant. Outputs can be cascaded for greater versatility.
All units employ cutting-edge technology that supports Deep Color (10-bit and12-bit) video plus new, lossless Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD Master Audio digital audio. In addition, they exhibit high bandwidth (up to 225MHz – 2.25Gbps) and provide signal amplification and equalization for high performance processing of audio and video. All units come with a built in Signal Enhancement feature for longer cable runs of up to 35m (115ft) from source to display.
HDTV resolutions of 480p, 576p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p are supported, plus SDTV resolutions of 480i and 576i and PC resolutions up to 1920 x 1200. These units are also fully HDCP compliant and DVI compatible when used in conjunction with DVI to HDMI cable adapters. Provisions are made for securing locking type HDMI connectors as well as standard HDMI connectors. The units are housed in rugged metal cases and optional Single/Dual Rackmount Kits are available.
