Neothings Announces Expansion of HD Video Matrix Line

Neothings Announces Expansion of HD Video Matrix Line

La Mesa, CA, September 11, 2006 – Neothings, Inc., today announced the expansion of it’s Avalon product line, an HD component video and digital audio matrix switch, and also the introduction of the new Borrego, featuring HD component video, composite video, and analog audio matrix switch.

Neothings’ Avalon matrix switch, previously offered as a 6×2 and 8×4 configuration, has been revamped to sport a new 8×2 to replace the 6×2 model, the 8×4, and a new 8×8 configuration. As before, the Avalon will route up to 8 inputs of HD YPbPr, or component video, plus optical digital audio, and coax digital audio. With the new 8×8 model, the Avalon can support up to 8 independent output zones, all in a non-blocking matrix. The chassis size remains the same, a compact rack mountable 2U enclosure.

“Our success with the larger sizes of Avalon has driven us to design for larger solutions”, states Bill Paul, CEO. He added, “We have also listened to our dealers for other needed features, which is how we came up with the requirements for the Borrego.”

The new model for this season is the Borrego, an HD component video, stereo analog audio, and a versatile high bandwidth signal path for either composite video or coax digital audio. Now system integrators can place displays into rooms without the need for a digital surround sound decoder in each zone. The Borrego is also available as an 8×2, 8×4, and an 8×8 configuration.

Paul comments that the Borrego “is basically like having 3 matrix switches in one 2U box. They can all be control together or separate, for the ultimate in flexibility.”
