Arista Corporation just announced the AVC-1006-S1H4 SDI/HDMI Switcher and Quad HDMI Output Splitter. Designed for event production where an SDI or HDMI video signal is to be displayed on multiple large format LCD screens.
When used with Arista’s ADM-2155BP 55-inch large format multi-touch LCD display, the new AVC-1006-S1H4 turns the ADM-2155BP into a multi-functional large format stage monitor that can accept either SDI or HDMI video signals. Further, up to four additional large screen displays with HDMI inputs can display the same video content that is displayed on the stage monitor (ADM-2155BP). The AVC-1006-S1H4 also provides an SDI loopback that can be used to connect to a small SDI monitor positioned closer to the presenter.
Arista’s new AVC-1006-S1H4 can also be plugged into the company’s RS-123 Universal Rackmount Extender using either the ARD-1006-A07-TX transmitter card or, for distances over 330 feet, the ARD-1006-B31-TX optical fiber transmitter card. This configuration enables a local SDI or HDMI source to be displayed on up to four large screen TV’s on stage plus an optional SDI monitor close to presenter if an SDI video source is connected. Further, this configuration can also serve as a video extension to a remote site up to 300 feet (ARD-1006-A07-TX) or 1,000 feet (ARD-1006-B31-TX).
The Arista AVC-1006-S1H4 SDI/HDMI Switcher and Quad HDMI Output Splitter is $450 and here are the specs.
