MultiView Octet-SAP

MultiView Octet Transmitter


Enabling a wide variety of point to multi-point configurations, the MultiView Octet transmitter has 8 UTP output ports which can be connected to 8 receivers or 8 daisy chains of 12 receivers each, for a total of 96 receivers. Up to 5 Octets can be fully cascaded using the local video, audio and serial output ports to enable a distribution system of over 450 displays.

Available with MultiView-SAP functionality, the Octet supports addressable duplex serial enabling independent two-way communication with each display. Ideal for signage applications requiring maximum control and feedback to and from the displays, the Octet supports flexible addressing modes enabling communication session for point to point, group broadcast and system-wide broadcast. When paired with the appropriate receivers, the Octet delivers the world’s longest UTP extension capability at the highest resolution i.e. 1920x1200 at 2000ft/609m.

The MultiView Octet can be programmed and controlled using onboard push buttons and display or using a 3rd party control system connected to the local serial port.
