TEKVOX has introduced the revolutionary TekFlex-12, a new way of thinking about seamless high definition switchers that replaces all inputs and outputs with 12 individual slots that can be independently populated. The product will debut at InfoComm 2016, June 8-10, at the Las Vegas Convention Center (Booth #N1715).
TekFlex-12 users are no longer limited by the number of fixed inputs or outputs or the fixed type of connection options in most presentation switchers. TEKVOX gives the power to pick and choose back to the user. With TekFlex-12 providing 12 card slots with flexible I/O combinations, users just pick the input and output cards they need and plug them into whatever slot they wish. The system automatically recognizes the input and output cards.
"TekFlex-12 represents the opening salvo in a new age of highly configurable seamless AV matrix technology. No longer do you need to be restricted by a fixed number of inputs and outputs.", said Mike Slattery, TEKVOX Founder and CTO. Our goal is to set the standard for affordable configurable matrix technology that will support the widest array of system topologies possible with many additional chassis and card options to come."
This flexible matrix platform can be implemented as a preconfigured system or customized in the field to adapt to project-specific needs. The TekFlex-12 can be reconfigured at any time, by changing the input and output cards and setting the configuration. It is the ideal solution for small and medium-sized conference rooms with the potential to provide easy, seamless switching for users' laptops, big- and small-screen displays and projectors. The TekFlex-12 is also a great solution for the rental and staging market.
TekFlex-12 offers comprehensive signal card compatibility with 3G-SDI/HD-SDI/SDI, HDMI, HDBaseT, DVI and VGA inputs and outputs. Hundreds of potential port allocations can be configured in the 12-slot system. TekFlex-12 is easy to install and control, easy to operate and easy to integrate with lecture capture and videoconferencing equipment. It also offers substantial cost savings over similar systems.
TekFlex-12 has multiple control options: a high-sensitive LCD touchscreen control, GUI control with a simple interface and a front button panel. It offers easy and powerful EDID/HDCP management over the web. The product can also be controlled via RS232, IR or Ethernet utilizing the award winning TekMonitor and TekTouchPad products.
Seamless switching is achieved with no delay, no flickering and no screen blanking. Audio may be embedded and de-embedded depending on the interface options chosen The system also has hot-plug support without power off. Firmware is upgradable via the USB port.
The MSRP for the TekFlex-12 Chassis is $3750. The MSRP for the individual ranges from $175 to $350 for input cards and from $275 to $450 for output cards. Significant discounts for educational institutions are available.
