Altinex, a leading manufacturer of Signal Management Solutions®, is pleased to introduce the expansion of the company’s popular Digital Multitasker product line with the debut of the MT302-121 Digital MultiTasker. Designed as the foundation for providing advanced Audio-Visual Systems capabilities in today’s sophisticated AV environments, the MT302-121 Digital Multitasker is a 3-RU, rackmountable chassis that offers advanced AV system configuration options that are controllable using either a network or wireless setup.
The MT302-121 supports up to 12 Digital MultiTasker cards and is equipped with 2 Ethernet ports, an IR receiver/IR blaster, and an LCD front panel—making it the ideal control solution for projects that are smaller in scope and, thus, do not require 20 slots as offered by the larger MT302-201. Control is accomplished through a computer, a control system, or any device capable of establishing a standard TCP socket to the MT302-121’s IP address.
The new Digital MultiTasker is controlled using TCP/IP commands or via an easy-to-use web-based interface. The unit’s front panel has an LCD to display essential information about the system and the cards installed—including the IP address of the MultiTasker on the network. The MultiTasker utilizes a simple ASCII based command set to control the individual cards installed inside the enclosure. Individual cards are referenced using their slot number as a unique identifier.
With its capacity for accommodating 12 Digital MultiTasker cards, this innovative enclosure has several cutting-edge cards available for use with the system. These include the MT312-104 Control Card, the MT305-804 8×4 HDMI® Matrix Switcher, the MT315-101 HDMI Over Anywire™ Transmit Card, the MT315-102 HDMI Over Anywire Receive Card, the MT317-101 HDMI Over Fiber Optic Transmit Card, the MT317-102 HDMI Over Fiber Optic Receive Card, and the MT310-104 16×16 Stereo Audio Matrix Switcher. Additional options for the system include the MT399-102 Enclosure Rack-Mount Bracket Kit and the MT399-105 5-Piece Multitasker Card Slot Blanks for creating a clean, streamlined appearance over unused / open slots.
Jack Gershfeld, President of Altinex, commented on the company’s MT302-121 Digital Multitasker, “The new MT302-121 is a terrific control solution for use in today’s network-connected AV meeting and presentation environments. With its onboard LCD for a quick look at the system’s various parameters and the ability to be controlled in multiple ways, the new MT302-121 offers integrators a comprehensive means of controlling and interacting with a myriad of AV equipment for use in smaller projects that don’t necessarily require our 20-slot Digital MultiTasker model. With its ability to reside on either a shelf or mounted into a standard equipment rack, the MT302-121 offers a wealth of functionality in a compact form factor that can go just about anywhere. I’m confident integrators will love our new solution for digital AV systems.”
The new Altinex MT302-121 Digital Multitasker carries a MSRP of $1,425. The system cards and related options range in price from $180.00 – $950.00. The product is available now and will be displayed at InfoComm 2017 in Orlando, FL.
