RTI will be showing a range of new AV products “designed to provide dealers with comprehensive, end-to-end remote management solutions for the commercial market,” at InfoComm 2018 in Las Vegas June 6-8 [booth N422].
“We’ve been gaining momentum in the commercial space as our product offerings continue to evolve to meet the demands of offices, hotels, and restaurants,” said RTI CEO Ed McConaghay in the company announcement.
“Our new line of AV distribution products combined with our custom control solutions position RTI perfectly for the commercial market, and we’re delighted to be showing them at InfoComm 2018.”
RTI will showcase new HDMI, HDBaseT and modular video matrix switchers, presentation switchers, extenders and more. These new products “will become an extension of the RTI AV control ecosystem, for a robust end-to-end solution,” according to the announcement.
“Bringing these solutions together with a remote management solution and video-over-IP (VoIP) system, RTI can now provide integrators with everything they need for AV control and automation in the commercial environment,” according to the company press release.
The new RTiQ remote management solution for RTI systems “makes it simple to monitor clients’ AV installations,” according to the company press release. RTiQ can be configured to monitor components controlled by an RTI XP control processor. Dealers can monitor the status of these devices via a dashboard from anywhere in the world.
If a failure occurs, dealers can receive email and text notifications to alert them and they can remotely trigger an action to restore the failed system or component. Customizable remote management actions include rebooting devices, running macros, or sending commands.
Thanks to the acquisition of the Miravue product line earlier this year, RTI now offers the VIP-1 Video-over-IP system, which acts as a transmitter and receiver in one device.
The RTI Miravue VIP-1 enables scalable AV distribution over Ethernet and wireless networking while supporting HDMI/HDCP 1.x and 2.x video sources with ultra-low latency.
In addition, network video streams from IP cameras may be viewed without any additional equipment. The VIP-1’s built-in scaler matches the displays’ maximum resolution while also providing stereo downmixing and lip-sync adjustment.
