Argosy to unveil ‘industry firsts’3 February 2017
Argosy claims it has become the broadcast industry’s exclusive distributor for two new ATEN products, debuting at BVE 2017 at the end of the month.
The ATEN DVI KVM-over-IP KE Extender Slim, a more compact, entry-level price-point version of the original KE KVM-over-IP Extender that was unveiled last September at IBC, is aimed at broadcasters who require multiple points of access to its programmes and systems from remote USB consoles (USB keyboard, USB mouse, DVI monitor) from anywhere over a network from master control rooms to rackrooms and editing suites.
As an IP-based matrix Extender, it can connect in many different ways, to fulfil different working environments, such as one-to-one (extender mode), one-to-many (splitter mode), many-to-one (switch mode), or many-to-many (matrix mode).
Also making its broadcast debut is the ATEN CE624 USB DVI Dual View HDBaseT 2.0 KVM Extender, capable of sending two signals over a single CAT6 cable. The Extender integrates the latest HDBaseT 2.0 technologies to provide, “the most reliable transmission” of video, audio, USB and RS-232 signals available on the market.
“We are delighted to be back at BVE to support broadcasters, not only presenting our traditional portfolio of infrastructure products, but with a broader offering that provides smarter technologies and cost savings for the wider production environment,” commented Daniel Hinton, B&C regional manager, Argosy.
“Both these ATEN solutions can support broadcasters as they process ever increasing amounts of content and media files over varying distances. Broadcasters using these solutions can reduce their cabling and infrastructure needs, thus saving a lot of money.”
