Challenge

Retailers are always looking for ways to differentiate themselves from the competition as well as create excitement and connect with their customers. Digital signage is one way to achieve these goals. Placing screens in the window and throughout the store allows retailers to engage with customers by displaying dynamic video, advertisement, and entertainment content related to their brand and business. To achieve this, a system that supports the distribution of high quality video content from a centralized source to multiple displays mounted in various locations is required.

Solution

Taking a single HDMI source and sending it to multiple displays requires a distribution amplifier such as Atlona’s Rondo™ or UHD-CAT series of products. Both series offer several models that support a different number of outputs for the displays. The Rondo series has models with 2, 4, and 8 outputs. The UHD-CAT line also has models with 2, 4, and 8 outputs.

Distance between the source and the displays is another important consideration. Rondo products connect to displays over HDMI cabling at distances up to 50 feet. UHD-CAT products use HDBaseT™ transmission to support distances up to 330 feet over CAT 6/6A cable on certain models. If there is a mix of short and long distances to displays, a Rondo distribution amplifier can be used with Avance™ HDBaseT extenders for the longer runs.

Application Design

Send content up to 230 feet to multiple displays

The AT-UHD-CAT-4 takes content from a HDMI source and distributes it to four displays via HDBaseT and AT-UHD-EX-70C-RX receivers.

Send HDMI content to multiple displays

The AT-RON-444 takes content from a HDMI source and distributes it via HDMI for up to four displays. Add an AT-AVA-EX70-KIT HDBaseT extender to support displays that are a further distance than HDMI cables will support.
