Analog video, audio and serial fiber-optic based transmitters

Two-port (VG-TX2-MM-VGA-ISA) or four-port (VG-TX4-MM-VGA-ISA) flexibility


Available in two-port (VG-TX2-MM-VGA-ISA) and four-port (VG-TX4-MM-VGA-ISA) functionalities, these Voyager VGA transmitters accept any type of analog video (RGBHV, component, s-video or composite) as an input. Regardless of the video input type utilized, the output will be converted to a crisp 1080p digital signal for use with a Voyager HDMI or DVI receiver.

These units also handle analog audio and duplex (two-way) RS-232 siganls. Additionally, the analog audio input can be infused, using Magenta's MaGUI software, into the HDMI output stream (if an HDMI Voyager receiver is utilized).

One multimode fiber-optic module is included with the unit. Additional modules can be ordered to cascade to a second Voyager transmitter or to distribute signals to multiple Voyager receivers.

Singlemode fiber optic modules supporting longer distances (4KM and 30KM) are also available from Magenta.

A power supply is also included.

Item Description
DC input power Provided by the CORE module. However, power consumption of this module alone is approximately 1.5 watts.
Video Support

Video input formats (video input port):
•  Maximum resolution supported = 1920x1080.
•  Maximum color-depth = 24 bits per pixel (8 bits per color).
•  Maximum refresh rate = 60Hz @ 1920x1080, 75HZ @ 1152x864.

Video output formats (local VGA output port only):
The local output port is essentially a direct copy of the VGA video input port. There are no local output ports for the non-VGA analog signals.

Connectors (1) VGA-input (HD-15F)
(1) VGA-output (HD-15F)
(1) S-Video input (6pin MiniDIN)
(1) Composite video input (RCA phono)
(3) Component video inputs (RCA phono)
(1) CORE docking connector
