Modernizing History with HDBaseT

Customer: Fort Davis National Historic Site Visitor Center Theater
Location: Fort Davis, Texas, USA

The Visitor Center at Fort Davis National Park was established to educate the public about the role of this military post, active from 1854-1891. A new AV system was needed in its theater to allow park staff and volunteers to play the park movie from a BrightSign player. Other AV sources, such as laptops with VGA and HDMI outputs, are also used occasionally. The switcher/scaler needed to feed and extend to a ceiling mounted DLP projector. It also needed to connect a stereo audio amplifier via unbalanced audio to two loudspeakers mounted either side of the screen. The KanexPro HDBaseT Presentation Switcher & Scaler provided a reliable, easy-to-operate solution, allowing extension of uncompressed HDMI signals to the projector, guaranteeing top performance, reliability and ease of use at a competitive price.
