TekVox has announced the TEK 1201-N Next Generation Presentation Switcher for simplified AV and control in classrooms and small conference rooms and with collaboration tables.
Using the TekTouchPad or TCX9 TekController installers can create a low-cost mediated classroom or training room with the 1201-N at its core. Integrators can even implement CEC control of a Blu-ray player and display for full control using RS232 commands through the TekTouchPad or IP commands through the TCX9.
The 1201-N can be installed using TEKVOX’s Drop-In solution and operates with Drop-In commands. TEKVOX Drop-Ins are highly automated, networked managed and factory-programmed solutions, which are configured for easy integration and installation, reliability and simple maintenance.
“The new TEK 1201-N is the only presentation switcher on the market with so many great features,” says TEKVOX CTO Mike Slattery. “Among them are seamless switching, CEC control of sources and displays, routing embedded HDBaseT RS232 commands to a display, and automatic operation, including automatically powering on and off a display.”
The Auto-Switcher Scaler features five HDMI and one multi-format (VGA, YUV or Video) inputs and two mirrored outputs, one HDMI and one HDBaseT Lite. The 1201-N also offers a mix stereo line input, a balanced stereo audio output and separate source and mix volume controls.
The new switcher has TCP/IP control and operates in both Auto and Manual switching modes. Display control is via CEC, IR or RS232; control of HDMI sources is with CEC or IR.
The 1201-N includes the TEK TPUH411RA HDBaseT receiver with audio extraction and a rack and wall mounting kit.
To simplify installation, the 1201-N has PoH to power the TEK TPUH411RA receiver with audio extraction. If the display does not have CEC control, the switcher can send RS232 commands over HDBaseT to operate our TEK 3 for driver-selected control of a display or to send control commands directly to a display. Control for the switcher is provided by the unit’s RS232 and TCP/IP connection or the RS232 connection at the receiver.
