DVDO RS-2 and Cameras Provide Instant HDMI and USB-C AV Connectivity Across Classrooms and Meeting Rooms
DVDO®,leveraging over two decades of award-winning Pro AV video and data connectivity leadership, today launched DVDO-RS-2, a simple AV solution that facilitates data and video sharing and collaboration in classrooms and conference rooms. As schools and businesses prepare for in-person and remote interaction, DVDO makes intuitive and reliable AV communication and camera devices affordable for educators and professionals.
“RS-2 is an efficient AV backbone that lets teachers, students, and meeting participants access the room’s display, audio system, and technology from across the room,” said DVDO CEO Doug Fealtman. “Paired with DVDO cameras, our room AV solutions enable convenient and safe learning, sharing, and discussion within classrooms and meeting rooms as well as streaming and remote collaboration.”
Versatile AV Routing
DVDO-RS-2 comprises a simple wall plate transmitter with HDMI and USB-C inputs as well as a USB host port, for students or meeting participants to connect their laptop. HDBaseT technology carries these signals up to 70m / 230ft across the venue to a receiver with additional ports located at the teaching desk, podium, or conference table. The receiver can output to the room’s flat panel display and audio system, as well as switch from HDMI and USB-C sources connected to the wall plate or receiver.
Despite its simplicity, RS-2 provides powerful future-proof AV handling, supporting true 4K@60Hz 4:4:4 uncompressed chroma with 18Gbps video bandwidth. RS-2 is fully compliant with HDMI 2.0b, HDCP 2.2, and DisplayPort 1.2a, as well as HDR10 and HDR10+. Multichannel audio capabilities include Dolby Atmos, TrueHD, DTS X, HD Master / HD High Resolution, 5.1 and PCM 8-channel uncompressed formats.
RS-2 requires zero software or driver configuration and provides POE, so only a single Ethernet cable run is needed between the receiver and the transmitter wall plate, minimizing installation and maintenance cost.
Integration with Cameras
DVDO Room Solutions work perfectly in conjunction with DVDO streaming / conferencing cameras for classrooms and conference rooms to become accessible to remote attendees. Atop of the DVDO commercial camera lineup, the DVDO-C3-1 (MSRP $1499) is an advanced Full HD 60fps Pan / Tilt / Zoom (PTZ) camera with intelligent auto-tracking, ideal for education and large presentations.
A sophisticated algorithm smoothly tracks the teacher or presenter, and with powerful 12X optical zoom, even white-board notes are clearly legible. C3 is also equipped with a 72.5° wide-angle professional lens, low-light sensitivity with 2D / 3D noise reduction, H.264/265 video and AAC audio encoding for crystal-clear video and audio quality.
DVDO-C2-1 provides all of the professional features of C3, including PTZ, 12X optical zoom, and advanced audiovisual processing without the auto-tracking feature, making it perfect for enterprise standardization and SMB meeting-room installations.
Lastly, DVDO-C1-1 is a high-quality Full HD pro webcam with integrated microphone, low-light sensitivity, and wide-angle performance, suitable for individual students and workstations.
DVDO cameras, KVM / HDMI switches, splitters, matrices, extenders, and accessories are available from the company’s website and through distributors and Pro-AV resellers. For more information visit the new dvdo.com website, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
