Anaheim, California (June 9, 2004) - Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce the Extron SEQ 100 BNC and SEQ 100 15HD skew delay equalizers, designed to correct skew problems commonly encountered when transmitting high resolution video using data grade Category 5, 5e, or 6 twisted pair cable. These high performance products feature independent time delay adjustments for red, green, and blue, enabling users to dial in superior image quality. Both models are compatible with RGBHV, RGBS, RGsB, component video, and S-video signals. Each is ideal for new installations or to upgrade existing twisted pair installations. Both the SEQ 100 BNC and SEQ 15HD use a time delay circuit on each color input that can be independently adjusted from 0 to 39 nanoseconds. Each model features three rotary switches on the front panel for adjusting the time delay. These independent rotary switches allow each color signal to be delayed to compensate for the different lengths of each pair of wires. "The SEQ 100 BNC and SEQ 100 15HD employ an advanced design that offers enhanced skew compensation while maintaining full signal integrity," says Lee Dodson, vice president of marketing for Extron. "Since they are external products, they offer a cost effective skew compensation solution, because they can be selectively added to only those signal runs that require compensation. The SEQ 100 BNC accepts input signals on five female BNC connectors and outputs on five female BNC connectors. The SEQ 100 15HD uses individual female 15-pin HD connectors for input and output. When separate horizontal (H) and vertical (V) sync signals are used, they are passively routed through the unit, simplifying installation and setup. Both models are part of the Extron VersaTools® family of economical, compact products designed for easy integration into new and existing AV environments. Housed in a 1U, quarter rack width metal enclosure, they fit just about anywhere: in racks, under tables and desktops, or next to a projector. The SEQ 100 BNC and the SEQ 100 15HD have a list price of $345.00 each. For availability, call an Extron Customer Support Representative at 800.633.9876.
