Wall plate system
AV Portal+: Designed as a wall-mount AV connection system, a comprehensive range of receptacles, switches, connectors and ports are available. Bezels are easy to install, robust and require no tools to remove or replace. Black, brass or steel bezels are available, plus a 10-slot mounting plate that holds the various sectional plates. Configuration of the sectional plates is coordinated by Altinex. Using a series of screw-driven clamps that press and secure the mounting plate into the wall slot, installation of the system is quick and easy and requires nothing more than a Phillips screwdriver -- after which, the bezel snaps into place to provide a quality finished appearance.
Web-controlled power switch
Dataprobe Iboot: BTX is now Datapobe's A/V distributor in the U.S. and will carry the Iboot Web-controlled power switch and the Iboot Bar remote power management system. Iboot is a 10/100 Ethernet-network-attached, IP-addressed, Web-controlled power switch. Anyone with a Web browser can access Iboot to perform power on, off, or reboot (timed power shutdown). Dataprobe's rack-mounted, network-controlled power strips allow remote power management to reboot, or power on or off any ac device. The Iboot Bar system provides independent control of each outlet on the device from the Web, Telnet and simple network management protocol (SNMP). Iboot Bar enables network access plus out-of-band control via serial port and internal modem with both data and DTMF tone dial control.
Standard and Pro series: Available in both single and dual gang configurations, these wall plates bring order to the common challenge of cable clutter. They are available with all the standard pro audio connectors, including XLR3F, XLR3M, 1/4" TRS (balanced phone), 1/4" TS (unbalanced phone), and 4-pole Speakon. The Standard series features generic non-locking connectors while the Pro series features Neutrik locking connectors. Both series of wall plates are manufactured using US32D satin stainless steel precut to accommodate industry standard D-style connectors.
My Sine: The easy-to-use computer-based application allows quick and simple setup of a Sine Systems RFC 1/B remote control, avoiding the time-consuming process of entering everything with a telephone keypad. My Sine allows users to keep multiple sites in one single database. Multiple RFC configurations can be maintained in one central location. Programming can be through remote DTMF, local DTMF or serial connection. A built-in 10-key phone pad allows users to check the programming on the fly inside the program. No need to disconnect cables or restart the program to check work.
USB right-angle adapters
L-com Global Connectivity
UADAA90 Series: The DB15 allows cables to mate at a 90-degree angle to avoid nearby obstructions, features a 1" low profile, 100 percent shielding throughout for protection against EMI/RFI; gold contact plating provides reliable connections with repeated mating cycles and connector options are DB9, DB15, DB25 or HD15 male to female with two exit orientations. The new right angle adapters are perfect for applications that require cables to be connected in tight spaces. They come in either exit 1 or exit 2 styles so the cable can approach from either direction.
