TEKVOX Introduces the 1201-MV Presentation Switcher with 4K Compatibility and Many Advanced Features
November 16, 2020
The latest in TEKVOX’s prestigious line of 1201 presentation switchers, the 1201-MV offers even more advanced features to further enhance the company’s popular Drop-In A/V systems.
“The new 1201-MV has all the power and sophistication customers have come to expect from a 1201 switcher, plus an array of cutting-edge features designed for easier integration and more versatile, responsive operation,” says TEKVOX CEO Jim Reinhart.
As TEKVOX moves to make all of its solutions compatible with 4K, the 1201-MV supports video resolutions up to 4Kx2K@60Hz 4:4:4.
The switcher features five HDMI inputs, as well as one USB-C input with up to 60W of power charging. It offers simultaneous HDMI and HDBase-T video outputs, with the HDMI output capable of acting as either a system confidence monitor or a PC monitor, depending on the application. These capabilities make the switcher more versatile, and reduce the amount of equipment and cabling required for a complete system.
For maximum convenience, the 1201-MV provides USB pass-through ports for a PC and peripheral devices. This allows a single mouse and keyboard to control both the PC and a connected USB-C source, depending on which is selected.
The new 1201-MV offers robust multiview and features 12 flexible configurations, allowing users to view up to four sources at once without additional hardware. “This was not possible with our previous 1201 switchers, and allows our clients to use their systems exactly as they want,” says Reinhart.
The switcher also supports automatic source detection & switching, an in-demand function especially useful for collaboration and conferencing solutions.
The 1201-MV’s HDBase-T output can travel up to 330 feet (100m) without any additional amplification, and supports PoH for remotely powering the receiver, resulting in convenient, single-cable installation. The 1201-MV also features sophisticated audio embedding & de-embedding, ensuring clear, reliable sound regardless of how it’s used. Finally, the switcher can be controlled via IR remote, RS-232, or TCP/IP commands for versatile, responsive operation & easy integration into any system.
The 1201-MV is available now with an MSRP of $2,995. The switcher is shipped fully functional, pre-programmed, and rigorously tested.
