Magenta unveils Voyager series distribution platform

Magenta Researchhas announced its Voyager series signal distribution platform, which leverages the company’s FiberMax Engine technology enabling pro-AV and digital signage customers to distribute multi-format high-bandwidth signals over fiber at significantly lower costs.

According to the company, Magenta’s Voyager Fiber Optic Signal Distribution Platform is an interoperable set of transmitters, receivers, distribution amplifiers and matrix switchers, which enables any end-to-end configuration for extension and switching of uncompressed multi-format video and audio, RS-232, IR and 480 Mbps USB 2.0 signals over fiber at distances up to 16.75MI/30KM.

Magenta’s Flex-VCA architecture allows each Voyager transmitter and receiver to support a wide variety of analogue and digital video formats through plug-and-play field interchangeable modules. With built-in auto format conversion and delay free HDCP switching, sources and displays of all supported video types including HDMI, DVI, DisplayPort, VGA and SDI can be interconnected on the same network without the need for external converters, thereby reducing both cost and the number of potential failure points.

For installations with displays requiring mixed resolutions, the Voyager series utilizes Magenta’s unique ScaleMAX technology to prevent low quality up-scaling on high resolution displays. By configuring each source to the highest resolution and then using broadcast quality downscaling for lower resolution displays, ScaleMAX technology ensures optimal content resolution on each and every display.
