June 13, 2012
Peavey® Commercial Audio proudly announces it has once again expanded the capabilities of MediaMatrix®, the world’s most flexible and scalable networkable digital audio system. For the first time, systems integrators will be able to extend video switching and scaling to all control interfaces within MediaMatrix projects.
The new MediaMatrix family of versatile and highly capable video products—the VSC-101tn™, VSC-101™, VSC-51™ and VCAT-HD™ video scalers and switchers—provides an integrated video solution for mid-level entertainment venues, houses of worship, conference rooms and educational facilities. Through this new suite of products, users can configure and control video projects in MediaMatrix installations using the intuitive NION drag-and-drop interface for nControl™, nTouch™ surface-mount panels, the NWare™ Mobile App and more.
The VSC-101 is a full-function, rack-mountable scaling presentation switcher that scales up to 10 video inputs to a simultaneous HDMI and VGA output. Video inputs include 4 x HDMI (1.4 compliant), 4 x VGA with 1/8-inch (3.5mm) stereo audio inputs, 1 x Component Video, 1 x S-Video, and 2 x Composite Video. The VSC-101tn also includes a twisted-pair output for connection to the included VCAT-HD-R via CAT-5e or CAT-6 shielded cable up to a distance of 70 meters. Both models include balanced audio outputs, and a 10-watt power amp for audio monitoring.
The VSC-51 scaling presentation switcher scales up to five video inputs to an HDMI output. Video inputs include 2 x HDMI, 1 x VGA, 1 x Component Video, 1 x Composite Video or S-Video. The VSC-51 also features a 1/8-inch (3.5mm) stereo analog audio output and a SP/DIF digital audio output (RCA Jack) for audio-follow-video. The VSC-51 can be rack mounted to the front or rear of standard equipment racks.
The VSC-101, VSC-101tn and VSC-51 are HDCP 1.3 compliant and compatible with NTSC 3.58, NTSC 4.42, PAL, and SECAM. All functions can be controlled via the front panel, the provided hand-held IR remote, or serially by an external NION controller via RS-232.
The VCAT-HD is an HDMI/IR/RS232 transmitter (VCAT-HD-T) and receiver (VCAT-HD-R) pair. The VCAT-HD uses HDBaseT technology to deliver a HDMI signal and control signal (IR & RS-232) over a single shielded, twisted-pair data cable, with a maximum transmission distance of up to 70 meters with CAT5e/CAT6 cable.
