            Ordering Information

            The MediaCento RF Distribution Transmitter from Black Box can convert HD video from a Component or VGA video source into an HDTV cable channel, extending that channel over standard coax RF wiring already in your building. Use it, for instance, to set up an information channel as part of an in-house TV distribution system.

            The MediaCento RF is ideal for businesses, institutions, or public venues that currently have some local HD content to distribute to on-premises HDTVs. It’s especially ideal for hotels, restaurants, stadiums, and mass-transit facilities.

            It keeps your AV distribution separate from your network infrastructure, economically repurposing wiring already installed for communications. No pulling new fiber optic cable or converting signals for extension over twisted-pair wiring.

            With two separate Component and VGA video input paths, the MediaCento RF captures both digital and analog video. It supports 480, 720, and 1080 resolutions on the Component input and 1920 x 1080 resolutions on the VGA input.
