RGB 580xi Mountable Remote Interface with Audio 60-362-01

The Extron RGB 580xi is a universal, computer-video interface designed to give users discreet, remote access to interface connections and controls. It provides high-performance computer-video interfacing features for use in applications where the interface needs to be located out of sight.

The RGB 580xi is compatible with VGA-QXGA, Mac, Sun®, SGI®, and other computer-video signals. It has a horizontal frequency range of 15-150 kHz and 300 MHz (-3 dB) RGB video bandwidth. It outputs RGBHV, RGBS, and RGsB on five female BNCs. The RGB 580xi features Extron's exclusive ADSP™ - Advanced Digital Sync Processing, which provides all-digital sync processing so stable images are produced on digital projectors and flat panel displays. Audio interfacing converts computer-generated, unbalanced audio to line level balanced audio.
