At ISE 2018, RTI will be debut a range of new AV products including a variety of video distribution solutions, presentation switchers, audio mixer amplifiers, interactive displays, and more. These new products will become an extension of the RTI control ecosystem, providing integrators with everything needed to automate the corporate, hospitality and retail environments.
HDMI and HDBaseT Video Matrix Solutions
RTI will display solutions designed for simple, reliable video distribution in conference rooms, classrooms, restaurants and more. Utilising HDBaseT technology, RTI’s VHD-4 and VHD-8 video matrix switchers extend HDMI, IR, and RS-232 signals up to 230ft over a single Cat 5e/6 cable. Also new to the lineup are the VHX-4 and VHX-8 HDMI video switchers, featuring the latest in HDMI 2.0 technology. To meet the unique needs of every installation, RTI will also offer a line of HDBaseT receivers/transmitters, video distribution accessories and wall plates.
To meet the video requirements in today’s corporate, education or retail environments, RTI will introduce high-performance, easily scalable modular matrix switchers. The VMX-8 and VMX-16 modular matrix switchers are conveniently configured using cards in increments of four input/outputs. For the ultimate in versatility, the VFX-124 and VFX-248 flexible matrix switchers have the perfect blend of fixed outputs and open slots (12 and 24 respectively), each configurable as inputs or outputs depending on application. To handle all the different video signal types, a wide variety of input and output cards provide support for HDMI, HDBaseT, VGA, and more.
Presentation Scaler Switchers
Designed for meeting rooms, classrooms and lecture halls, RTI presentation switchers make collaboration simple and efficient. The compact VSS-51 scaler/switcher comes with five inputs and accepts a variety of input formats, including a microphone. It combines truly seamless switching with advanced scaling and has mirrored HDMI and HDBaseT video outputs for easy connection to local and remote displays. The VMS-741 multiviewer scaler has seven video inputs, with seven audio inputs. Video is output at 4K and may be configured for viewing up to four sources simultaneously on one display.
Offering all the advanced control options of their predecessors, the XP-6s and XP-8v have been upgraded with new i.MX53 processors and more memory for increased processing power in residential and commercial projects. The XP-6s has been enhanced with a new rack-mountable design, and the XP-8v now features an HDMI output to enable a customisable on-screen display control interface.
Integration Designer APEX v10.2 Programming Software
The backbone of RTI’s control and automation solutions, the Integration Designers APEX programming platform combines time-saving automation with the complete freedom to design custom control experiences that will set dealers apart from the competition. The latest update, Integration Designer APEX 10.2, includes a new global controller feature, simplifying the creation of a multi-room control experience for a client. The software also includes a room proxy feature, which uses smart generation of the logic for interfaces in each room. At ISE 2018, RTI will provide training on Integration Designer APEX throughout in multiple languages.
