Fri, 10/14/2011 - 7:49am


SmartAVI announces the release of a new DVI-D Switch, the RDU-2P. The RDU-2P is a 2-Port DVI-D and USB 1.1 switch. It can extend DVI-D and USB 1.1 signals up to 275 feet over 2 STP cables. Designed in cooperation with studio engineers, the RDU-2P has both a local switch as well as a remote switch. This design allows users in a studio environment to switch between two computers without having to go to their physical location.

Most switch/extenders must be switched at the local unit and cannot be switched from the remote side. Because many applications demand that a switch be controlled remotely, the RDU-2P transmitter and receiver both have an integrated switch. This allows the user to switch between the two computers locally or from the remote location, making the RDU-2P the perfect remote desktop switch.

The RDU-2P features fully transparent USB 1.1 support, allowing any USB 1.1 device to work seamlessly. It supports DVI-D resolutions up to 1920x1200 and is compatible with Mac, PC and Linux operating systems.

With its DDC learning capability, the RDU-2P is fully plug-and-play. DDC provides plug-and-play capability to displays. When plugging a display into a computer, the DDC table in the display tells the computer the optimal resolution to use. In order to preserve this plug-and-play capability, the RDU-2P has integrated DDC learning.

Smart-AVI is internationally known for its aggressively-priced, high-quality audio/visual signal management solutions. The RDU-2P is the latest product in Smart-AVI’s steadily-growing line of signal extenders, switches and splitters. System architects everywhere have come to rely on Smart-AVI’s innovative technologies and commitment to the highest standards in A/V solutions.
