Arista Corporation Debuts ARD-1008A
4K HDBaseT Wallplate Receiver
Integrator-friendly features with rich feature set
Fremont, CA – August 2017… Arista Corporation, recognized globally as a leading manufacturer of video wall LCD displays, AV extenders, matrix switchers, AV MultiViewers, and related products for the AV installation and industrial markets, is pleased to introduce the ARD-1008A 4K HDBaseT Wallplate Receiver. Designed as a single Cat 6 cable in-wall 2 gang Decora style wall plate, the ARD-1008A serves as a dual purpose KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) extender receiver and HDMI extender receiver—making it easy to receive a 4K UHD video signal, control information, and power from a remote HDBaseT transmitter up to 330 feet away. The ARD-1008A is ideal for environments such as sports bars, digital signage, residential AV, and similar applications.
The Arista 1008A utilizes HDBaseT Extenders transmission technology to receive uncompressed 4K UHD video and HD multichannel audio, high speed internet, and control options (RS-232, IR and USB) over distances up to 100meters (328feet) via Cat6 UTP cable. The ARD-1008A wall plate can be powered locally from the rear panel or remotely by Power over Ethernet (PoE) from the transmitter.
With the ability to extend 10/100 Ethernet, RS-232, USB, and IR control, the ARD-1008A provides numerous options for use in AV installations. With the ARD-1008A, IR control is bi-directional—making it easy, for example, to change the TV channel while pointing the remote control at the intended display. The unit is HDCP 2.2 compliant to ensure the protection of displayed intellectual property / content. Similarly, the ARD-1008A supports EDID communication that enables a display to communicate its capabilities to a source device to ensure properly matched signals.
Paul Shu, President of Arista Corporation, commented on the company’s ARD-1008A 4K HDBaseT Wallplate Receiver, “The ARD-1008A is a compact, single cable solution for extending 4K UHD video, audio, RS-232, USB, bi-directional IR, and 10/100 Ethernet in a convenient manner. This product supports video signals up to 4K/UHD with embedded multichannel audio and powered by PoE. Further, the ARD-1008A’s HDBaseT implementation provides 10.2 Gbps of bandwidth on all channels. The unit requires no software for operation, its firmware is field upgradable via its mini-USB port, and it supports hot-plugging—enabling equipment to be connected or disconnected without having to power the equipment off. I’m confident AV integrators will find much to like.”
The Arista ARD-1008A 4K HDBaseT Wallplate Receiver carries an MSRP of $399. The unit is available now.
