Magenta Research Introduces a Practical Digital Video Distribution Solution for Mass Transit

Magenta Research, a US based manufacturer of high quality connectivity solutions, has announced the development and release of a new video signal management product. T Link is designed to work together with CAT-7 / Level F / FA FTP (foiled twisted pair) cable to provide a reliable, cost effective, high resolution digital video delivery solution for demanding uptime-critical environments, including trains, subways and buses. Other specialised applications such as outdoor and shipboard signage will be well served by T Link because of the system’s high degree of electrical noise immunity.

In addition to digital video, the system supports remote display control and remote system status enquiry via its addressable serial communications capability. The system configuration consists of a transmitter and one or more daisy chainable receivers that are typically enclosed within the display assembly.

“Aside from being very cost effective, T Link relies on robust copper connectivity that, unlike delicate fibre can withstand abuse and can be field terminated. T Link is a practical solution and provides substantially better serviceability than currently available fibre optic solutions” according to Chris Miller, Consulting Senior Staff Scientist at Magenta Research.

Magenta Research is introducing the T Link solution at ISE 2010 in Amsterdam.
