The Aurora Multimedia DXW-2E-S3-A-B/W HDBaseT Wall Plate Kit for AV consists of the DXW-2E HDMI/VGA Wall Plate to HDBaseT Extender and the DXE-CAT-RX3-A HDMI HDBaseT Extender with Relays & Amplifier.
The DXW-2E HDMI/VGA Wall Plate to HDBaseT Extender is a 2-gang multi-input Decora style wall plate with HDBaseT CAT extension. Its ability to convert VGA (YPbPr, S-Video, Video) with audio to HDMI locally and transmit the signal up to 600' makes it a good choice. The sources are remotely selectable via RS-232 commands sent through the matching receiver device (DXE-CAT-RX, DXM Matrixes, etc.). In addition, there is a LAN port for connection to the network without requiring a separate wall plate. The unit can be remotely powered by the receiver device and also has the ability to transmit IR signals via the sensor window on the front of the unit for remote control of IR controllable devices. Overall, the DXW-2 saves money and simplifies an installation by combining the functionality of a switcher, converter, and extender into one neat package.
The DXE-CAT-RX3-A HDMI HDBaseT Extender with Relays & Amplifier is part of the DigitalXtreme Series. Rear mounted connectors provide for a clean professional installation. The extender is designed to complement the Digital Xtreme Series of HDBaseT transmitters such as the DXW-2 series HDBaseT wall plates, DXE-CAT-TX1, DXE-CAT-TX2, DXM Matrixes, etc. The built-in relays allow for screen control and the audio amplifier versions will fill the room with sound when used with the Aurora SKR-22T 360° Sound Field Ceiling Tile Speaker (sold separately). A highly integrated solution for rolling carts, podiums, and credenzas is possible with the DXE-CAT. Going the distance: HDBaseT technology, with a single CAT cable, allows it to operate up to 330' for 1080p 60 Hz 48-bit color depth, 500' for 1080p 60 Hz 24-bit (CAT6), or 600' for 1080p 60 Hz 24-bit (CAT6A shielded) depending on transmitter model. In addition, the RS-232, IR, & LAN can be sent over the same cable bi-directionally. This unit has the ability to serve up Web control pages via LAN to any browser-enabled device like an iPad, iPhone, PC, Android, and more to take control of the RS-232, IR, and LAN. This is done with the Aurora LXCcontrol system engine inside, so not only is the DXE-CAT an HDMI extender receiver unit, but a fully functional autonomous control system that can operate standalone or as a port expansion unit for any control system.
