Digital Signage via CAT6
on Dec 18, 2006 at 10:54:10 pm

We want to send video feeds throughout our mall with the ability to switch between a few different video sources, ie. DVD, satelite TV, Camera feed, and send these feeds to LCD and projectors via CAT6 running to each display. There are 4 different viewing zones, each zone can have its own feed going to it, ie Zone 1 views a DVD while Zone 2 is watching Satellite TV.

Does anyone know what products I should take a look at. I've talked to a few consultants that recommend Magenta Research products, but there has to be others out there??

thanks for the help..

There are some other products that can do this, but I have to tell you, the Magenta Systems stuff is the BEST way to go. We've used all of the other products out there (KVM, Extron, Alcorn), and to put it absolutely bluntly: If you want to be endlessly trouble shooting, and don't mind rampant noise, signal degradation, artifacting, and scan rate issues, then go with something other than Magenta.

If, on the other hand, you want to just plug it in, have it work, and have it look absolutely terrific, then buy Magenta.

This from the experience of running distributed video in more stadiums, arenas, and concert halls than I can count.

GO MAGENTA.

Did I come across a bit strong there ? Sorry...

Best,
