MultiView MV500S


Magenta Research’s MultiView MV500S receivers offer a cost-effective, yet performance driven means to deliver high-resolution video and simplex or duplex serial over UTP cable. Flipping between simplex and serial modes is easily done using external switches.

Continuing the Magenta standard of offering UTP receivers in varying distance tiers—ensuring users only pay for the distance needed—MultiView 500 receivers are Magenta’s shortest distance receiver offered. Even while effective distance transmission has doubled in this first tier of receivers, 500 Series receivers offer a lower cost-per-distance solution from Magenta than ever before. Magenta’s tiered distance offerings for MultiView receivers are rounded out by the AK600, AK1200 and XR-2000 products.

MultiView 500 Series Receivers boast complete video-format agility, able to extend RGBHV, component, S-video or composite, video. Compensating for UTP cable distance length is as simple as choosing from four distance stages; 1-125 feet, 125-250 feet, 250-375 feet or 375-500 feet.

Resolutions to 1366x768 are supported, including 720p HDTV modes.
