Just Add Power -
AV over IP Configuration and Graphic Control of the
Manageable Network Switch
The transmission of high-resolution AV signals over IP networks by now has
become a standard - also for smaller installations. However, the configuration
of the manageable network switch which takes up the matrix function is not that
easy. People without IT training or who have not dealt extensively with this
subject, will have difficulties with the configuration.
new software "Media
Switcher" of Just Add Powerwill help significantly; not only does it configure the switch,
but it also offers a convenient graphic control interface for switching and
image splitting functions.

The MMA 220 can easily be integrated in a control system over the RS-232

In AV applications high voltage (230 V) loads often have to be controlled.
This can be motors for projection screens, blinds or fans. It can also
be for dimming of lighting - directly or indirectly by phase control dimming
using 0 - 10 V control voltages.
It is important that these functions can be controlled not only by the
centralized control system, but can also be controlled locally by simple push
buttons. Mixed operation is often required and with these units it is easy
to implement. The key inputs are optically isolated, so they can be used in wet

Live presentations and our exhaustive tests have
proven that there is virtually no perceptible difference in image quality
between the original image directly at the source, and the transmitted image at
the end of the IP route.
A true test which distinguishes good from
poor IP signal transmission systems can be seen when transmitting detail-rich
content, like Excel charts. Most systems on the market have difficulties
with this, and as such cannot produce an acceptable image quality on the
reception point display. The ProNET Advanced solution, however, can handle this
challenge with ease!
In order to achieve this visually
lossless objective, the ProNET Advanced solution uses a 1000BT platform.
This 1000% increase in specified network speed gives the ProNET Advanced the
necessary bandwidth to deliver a 1080p video signal. The end result is the
ability to replicate stunning 1080p video that cannot be distinguished from the
source content, allowing Custom Installers to satisfy the video quality demands
of the most demanding clients.

Higher Brightness levels and greater viewing
Front projection in high-light environments is a challenge which
can only be mastered by using high-end screen material which does not reflect
ambient light. There is a demand for such solutions, as interior
designers, architects and builders alike all prefer to have their presentation
rooms flooded with plenty of light, not darkened. Dnp has come to the
rescue with a great solution for such applications, the new 23-23 screen
material for their award-winning Supernova!
The new material has been
developed in response to customer requests for a higher-gain screen for use with
smaller projectors. By addressing the limitations of existing screen materials,
such as hot-spotting, shimmering surface or too narrow viewing cone, the
Supernova 23-23 material gives a high quality viewing experience when combined
with a smaller projector, thus reducing the total cost of the installation.
Thanks to an advanced ‘second generation’ reflector, the new material also
offers more uniform brightness, and a 35% improvement in horizontal viewing
angles (compared with its predecessor the Supernova 20-20-screen material ).
These extraordinary qualities make it the ideal screen material for environments
with wide viewing angles such as Conference Rooms, Point of Sales (POS) and
Points of Information (POI) applications.
￭ Main advantages of the 23-23 high gain
Same price, better performance
More uniform brightness
35% improvement in horizontal viewing angles
Uniform picture quality, and ultra-high contrast
Ambient light is absorbed and does not effect picture quality

Caché’s IP-Bus devices have become well-established as a key component in
many control system solutions for audio-visual applications and in building
Small, economically priced, multi-purpose and deployable in
any manufacturer’s control system – these are only some of the
convincing arguments for Global Caché.
Global Caché’s existing offerings of multi-functional IP-Bus
devices have always come with standard interfaces for RS-232, Infrared and relay
contacts in one common housing, which were ideal for most applications. The new
iTach line offers numerous different models which have only one interface type
each, giving you more choice, flexibility, and economy. Versions are available
with either three IR outputs, three relays or one RS-232 interface. On the input
side, all three models are available as LAN, WLAN or PoE (Power over Ethernet).
Hence, there are no limitations regarding the integration options in networked
control system solutions. And thanks to the integrated web server, configuring
of the devices is very easy.
Bus devices are manufacturer-independent and can of course be used in AVIT
Control installations, but also together with AMX*, Crestron* or CUE*.
A special highlight of these small boxes is the incredibly easy connection to
iPhone*/iPod touch (see drawing) enabling you to save even more money when
planning and executing your control system solution!

The ProFLECT II, the new generation of our successful ProFLECT, is
essentially the solution to your ceiling-mount projector problems. This
innovative product allows you to install your video projector in between the
finished, lower ceiling and the raw, upper ceiling, out of sight until needed.
The professional dual mirror system delivers perfect images when in use, and
serves to hide the projector when not in use.
When not in use the projector is completely out of sight, not disturbing
the room design and protected against damage, dirt and dust, and theft.
The projector remains in the ceiling while in use, dramatically reducing
the noise level of the cooling fan, allowing your clients to focus on the
presentation and not be distracted by the projector's motor!
In the closed position the bottom side of the mirror can be customized to
carry the same ceiling design as the rest of the room, regardless of whether
it is wood paneling, wallpaper, stucco work or just paint!
The projector can be easily removed for servicing or replacement while in
the "open" position.
Accepts most projectors up to a maximum size of 540 mm width and 200 mm
Low installation depth of only 275 mm
Integrated relay allows for direct control from any control system
Easy installation and trouble-free access to the projector for future

COMM-TEC first introduced its now legendary ProTUNE back in 2001 to a storm
of applause and a flood of orders from professional systems integrators who
required a professional TV and Radio tuner in their installations which offered
bi-directional communication to interact with the control system in the project.
Dissatisfied with using cheap, one-way IR solutions like VCRs, the ProTUNE was
truly a unique, value-adding product which helped their businesses.
Now, nearly a decade and 5 product-generations later, COMM-TEC is very proud
to announce the availability of the next generation in the ProTUNE family, the
ProTUNE HD! Offering the same great bi-directional
control features that made the ProTUNE famous, the ProTUNE HD is of course ready

COMM-TEC is very proud to announce a new product which solves many of these
problems: ProNET is a system which allows for
point-to-point, point-to-multipoint and multipoint-to-multipoint
configurations for transmitting and managing HDMI signals over
standard IP networks!

Transmitter is also available as a 19“ rack mount unit (with 3
transmitter units built-in)
Significantly less expensive than standard HDMI transmission technology

As we all have no doubt experienced at one time or another, small conference-
and seminar room installations usually do not have the budget to afford a
control system in the solution. This can be frustrating both for you,
the integrator, and for the end user, as the final result of the
installation will be sub-optimal without a professional control system
keeping charge of the room.
These frustrating days are now over!!

COMM-TEC’s successful AVIT control system, using Stardraw
Control software, not only offers you the most cost-effective, feature-rich
control system on the market today, but is also a tool for you to guide your
company through this difficult business environment! Today I want to point out
to you two areas in which our AVIT Control System can play a major role in
saving your business:
￭ Exchange Rate Fluctuations & Budget Cuts
Exchange Rate Fluctuations For most of you living in
countries in Eastern Europe, and in other areas of Europe not using the Euro,
you are dealing with your customers in your native currency. You make bids
on jobs in your native currency, but your suppliers usually are demanding Euros
or Dollars. This can create very big problems for you if your currency
loses significant value between the time you made the offer to the customer, and
the time the customer actually orders from you and you order from your
supplier. In some cases, the difference in exchange rates has fluctuated so
greatly that your entire profit on that job has been lost even before you
started the job. Budget Cuts Regardless of the currency we are using, the
drop in business brought on by the world’s financial crisis has no doubt
effected all of us. The € 50.000 AV project you had been waiting for has
suddenly been cut down to the bare essentials, and the budget has been sliced to
€ 25.000. Typically, the first thing to get cut out is the control system,
because normally the very expensive control system coming from the „established“
manufacturers is such a large portion of the total AV budget that it is the
easiest to cut.
In both cases, COMM-TEC’s AVIT control system can help!!
Exchange Rate Fluctuations
The AVIT control system costs a fraction of what the „established“ control
systems cost, is quicker and less costly to program, uses established
international TCP/IP standards, requires no expensive proprietary hardware or
programming knowledge, and offers much the same power and functionality as any
major control system player on the market. So, if you have already made an
offer for a control system months ago when the exchange rate was more favorable
to your local currency, and now are forced to sell this control system to the
end user at a time when the exchange rate would destroy all of your profits,
AVIT is here to help!!
Unfortunately we cannot change the economic environment we all find ourselves
in at the moment, BUT we can offer you a much more cost-effective, full-featured
Control System which can do everything that the other control systems can do, at
a fraction of the price. This may help you to salvage some of the business
which normally would have been cut due to budgetary
requirements. Additionally, selling the AVIT control system into new
projects will be much easier, as it’s significantly lower price allows you to
beat the competition every time! For complete information on COMM-TEC’s AVIT
Control System, click here: http://www.comm-tec.de/englisch/avit.html If you would like more detailed information on our AVIT Control System, or
would like to have a visit from one of our sales force to demonstrate the

Control concepts in the conference room or in the private home often involve
the operation of home automation as well as that of lights, blinds and
heating/air condition. The physical connection of these components and systems
is usually carried out in an existing electrical cabinet.
The ProSWITCH Bus Device is designed to simplify this connection
process. It attaches on the mounting rail like an automatic circuit breaker
saving you the circumstantial cabling from the 19" rack to the electrical
cabinet. This device allows for a single network cable to be

Brightly lit rooms and front projection:
two demands which seem incompatible. It is often the case with high-end
board- and conference rooms, that for aesthetic reasons the room is flooded by
natural light with little or no possibility to darken the room for front
projection. Rear projection is often not possible for reasons of
space. What is an integrator to do?
The dnp Supernova screen provides the answer! The Supernova has a special,
patented optical projection surface which absorbs ambient light and only
reflects light coming from the projector. The result is very impressive, even
with bright sunlight flooding through the windows. The Supernova Flex balances
supreme black levels with an ergonomic brightness level. This prevents eye
strain and provides clear and vivid images with full color saturation,
regardless of the angle in which the viewer is positioned.
The motor-driven Supernova Flex is now available as a ceiling mounted model
and as a wall-mount.
￭Special Features at
Brilliant projection even in brightly lit rooms
Superior uniformity. No bright spots or dark corners

Fabric quality, easy mounting, and price are the decisive
criteria for projection screens in standard installations. The new
WallMaster II Deluxe is the right choice every time because it meets all the
demands of a professional screen at a very competitive price.
Available in 4:3, 16:9 and square formats up to 120“ diagonal, COMM-TEC’s new

revolutionary click-mounting system, and the renowned CSR-System (Controlled

into the case, providing optimal performance, smooth, consistent operation, and
longer product life. The screen surface locks in at any position of your choice
and can thus be adapted to different applications.
