Extron just introduced the HC 404, marketing it as an easy-to-use AV system solution for small collaboration environments. This switching transmitter and scaling receiver work together to extend video, audio, and power up to 230 feet over a single CATx cable. The HC 404 features two HDMI and one VGA input at the transmitter, and one HDMI input at the receiver. Built-in control capabilities facilitate automatic source switching, display control, and integration with occupancy sensors.
An Extron ShareLink wireless collaboration gateway can be integrated to support BYOD – Bring Your Own Device environments, enabling users to share content from a wide variety of personal mobile devices for effective collaboration. The HC 404 provides high quality extension of video and audio signals for maximum performance and reliability. Ethernet connectivity facilitates management, monitoring, and control of AV devices over a standard network infrastructure, while built-in control functionality eliminates the need for additional equipment. Designed for professional integration, the low-profile HC 404 transmitter and receiver enclosures are ideal for discreet placement in lecterns, beneath tables, behind a display or wherever the application requires.
