Many of today’s conference room and presentation settings allow anyone to share their laptop screens with colleagues or attendees. In room TV’s or projectors display the presenters power point, website or video creating a setting ripe for great communication. The last thing on the presenters mind should be the audio video equipment, in these situations everything just needs to work, period.
When working with wireless solutions computers can become a real problem. Each person that needs to present usually has a different type of computer, each one acts a little different and can cause hiccups. These “hiccups” can come from the computer not recognizing the the connection, or not having the correct sharing firmware, or most likely with new laptops, not being able to handle the higher bandwidth 4K video signal that the computer is outputting.
AVPro Edge’s solution is the ConferX line-up of HDBaseT Wallplate Transmitters. Our first release is of the mini displayport and HDMI input version. The AC-CXWP-MDP-T is ready to help you share your presentation via it’s Mini Display port and HDMI inputs. Because it comes in a single gang, you are able to install it discreetly in the wall or table. And because it’s a hard wired solution you will not run into issues when working with different laptops.
Why Mini Display Port?
Many of today’s laptops have Mini Display Port as the video output option. The reason computer manufactures use mini DisplayPort is because it’s smaller than HDMI and doesn’t have to carry HDCP (content protection). Apple uses it widely calling it “Thunderbolt”. Lenovo, Dell, HP, Microsoft and Acer all have laptop models with mini DisplayPort as the only video output option.
Along with mini display port is an HDMI input port for all other sources or computers. These input ports are switchable and auto sensing. Allowing two users to be connected at one time, the user who connected most recently will be the one presenting. There is a input select button on the unit as well allowing the users to toggle between either inputs.
This product works great with 4K projectors or commercial displays that have a HDBaseT input port. For a complete kit that includes a HDBaseT Rx unit we have a 70meter and 100meter sets available. For more information on the AC-CXWP-MDP-T please visit it’s product page.
