Aurora Multimedia, a leading provider of cutting edge audio visual and control solutions and exclusive source for Digital Extender™ connectivity solutions from RTCom USA, is showcasing the new Digital Extender™ EDM-1818M. This hot new switcher combines several pioneering innovations. First, the DVI and HDMI input/output cards are fully HDCP compliant. Second, the backplane design allows project-specific population of the card frame. DVI, HDMI, SDI and Display Port can all be supported in the same frame at the time. The EDM-1818M will be the first available Display Port matrix switcher.

The EDM-1818M is extremely integrator-friendly. The backplane simultaneously supports multiple digital video formats, allowing integrators to use a single device for most digital signal formats. It can be populated to accommodate project-specific requirements. Integrators can later add ports to the system in the field as needed.
