Avocent's Emerge UNI-8dB directional antenna extends range by focusing energy into a unidirectional beam. It is a new accessory for the company's EWMS1000 wireless media streamer.
In line-of-sight applications the directional antenna allows the wireless media streamer receiver to be placed up to 1000 feet from the transmitter.
The Avocent Emerge UNI-8dB is packages as two antennas, one for the EWMS1000 transmitter, and a second antenna for the EWMS1000 receiver.
The antennas work in the 802.11a band and provide frequency ranges of 5.150 GHz to 5.825 GHz. Standard delivery of the Emerge EWMS1000 wireless media streamer includes factory-equipped omni-directional antennas which provide signal transmission of up to 300 feet line-of-sight.
The Emerge EWMS1000 wireless media streamer can be deployed in either a point-to-point (extension) or point-to-multipoint (broadcast) configuration.
It delivers full motion streaming video and audio to multiple display devices, and provides support for multiple input/output formats including Component, S-Video, Composite Video, VGA computer video (640 x 480), RS-232 control, and stereo audio.
