Arista Corporation introduces the RS-122 Universal 1RU Rackmount System with Dual HDBaseT, AV-over-IP, and computer options. Designed for applications where computers and extenders can be configured dynamically, the RS-122 can accommodate any two of five available swappable modules:

  • the MicroBox-1100A-E01 computer
