The days of people walking out their doors and down to their jobs like some TV sitcom family from yesterday are long gone. These days people travel more than ever, and even when they are not flying somewhere for meetings, they are commuting greater distances. 

Helping businesses to manage the diversity of their employees is the Brea, Calif.-based company KanexPro.  The latest product from the West Coast manufacturer is its new VTSC72-4K Video Tiler and Presentation Scaler Switcher, which can be used by businesses to manage and display a variety of video content. 

“Modern technology has allowed the workplace to evolve where many people work virtually and we knew it was important for integrators to have something innovative for end-users to allow them to collaborate with co-workers in a simple, easy-to-use manner,” says Matthew Bute, vice president of sales and marketing for KanexPro. “The HDBT-VTSC72-4K provides a plethora of benefits since it’s perfectly designed for large format displays by utilizing single 4K UHD large screens to replace four HD screens capability hence saves money, installation time and resources. It’s designed for corporate boardrooms for presentations, video-conferencing systems, huddle rooms and auditoriums, control rooms and operation centers where digital and analog devices need to be switched, scaled and shared.”

Explaining the product, KanexPro points out the VTSC72-4K Video Tiler and Presentation Scaler Switcher provides a modern workforce with anytime access to presentations. The seven-input product includes four HDMI, two DisplayPort and a single VGA input with mirroring capabilities. The product's HDBaseT outputs support the use of Cat-6 cabling to transmit A/V content distances up to 230 feet (70 meters) with PoC, and it also provides HDCP compliancy.

KanexPro also says the product offers control system flexibility through options such as RS-232 and TCP/IP to support its integration into third-party control systems, and it supports resolutions as high as 4K (3,840 x 2,160 at 30Hz) to enable users to utilize content from computers, to Blu-ray disc players without fear of suffering through content compatibility issues.
