Altronix Expands NetWay™ Series Delivering More Power and Flexibility
New 8-Port Midspans, PoE+ Gb Repeater and 5-Port Ethernet Switch Available Now
Altronix, the recognized leader in power and data transmission solutions for the professional security industry, continues to enhance its industry leading line of NetWay™ solutions with the introduction of several new and enhanced additions.
“Our new NetWay solutions provide the added power, extended range capabilities and cost-saving benefits that enable the latest edge devices to be installed with the highest degrees of efficiency,” said Alan Forman, President, Altronix Corporation. “Equally important, Altronix NetWay solutions feature the quality and reliability customers and installers need to keep systems running smoothly.”
Altronix has recently introduced three new 8-port NetWay Midspans. The NetWay8BT provides up to 90W power per port (480W total) for the most demanding Hi-PoE IEEE 802.3bt compliant devices, such as multi-sensor megapixel cameras or PoE lighting. For devices demanding power up to 60W each, Altronix now offers the NetWay8GP, providing up to 60W of power across all 8 ports (480W total). The NetWay8GL provides 60W on any designated port up to 240W total across the unit’s 8-ports.
The new NetWay 8-port Midspans feature: a 1U rack enclosure; 10/100/1000 Mbps data rates at distances up to 100m; and an integral battery charger for applications requiring backup. The NetWay8GP and NetWay8GL also feature embedded Altronix LINQ™ Technology to monitor, control and report power and diagnostics from anywhere.
Altronix has also released the new NetWayXTG PoE+ Gigabit Ethernet Repeater that extends data (video) up to 100m with a maximum possible range of up to 600m using multiple units. The unit is powered by the PoE/PoE+ it passes through.
Additionally, Altronix is introducing the NetWay5B 5-Port Ethernet Switch that allows up to four IP devices to be connected to the headend using a single CAT6 Ethernet cable, and is powered via PoE or any 12VDC or 24VDC source. Designed to be mounted in any Altronix enclosure, including their industry renowned line of Trove™ Access and Power Integration Solutions, this new NetWay5B 5-Port Ethernet Switch greatly reduces installation costs by eliminating the need and expense of running dedicated cables for each individual deployed device.
Altronix products are made in the U.S.A. and backed by a lifetime warranty.
Atlona Unveils Trio of New Omega™ AV Presentation and Integration Solutions
Atlona, a Panduit company, has announced three new offerings in its rapidly-growing Omega™ Series of switching, extension, and video processing solutions for modern AV communications and collaboration. The AT-OME-PS62 6×2 matrix switcher delivers exceptional performance and value for 4K/UHD presentation and conferencing applications in medium-to-large AV environments, while the AT-OME-EX-TX-WP and AT-OME-EX-TX-WP-E wallplate transmitters provide discreet, cost-effective AV interfacing for North American and European installations, respectively.
Leading the latest wave of Omega products is the OME-PS62, a 6×2 matrix presentation switcher featuring three HDMI inputs and two HDBaseT inputs alongside a USB-C AV input for direct, BYOD-friendly interfacing with the latest mobile devices and laptops. The USB-C interface also can be used for data connectivity to the OME-PS62’s integrated USB 2.0 hub, as well as charging the connected device. The switcher features HDBaseT and HDMI outputs, along with 4K/60 4:4:4 capability for all inputs and the HDMI output, plus USB extension over HDBaseT. Meanwhile, high-quality, 4K downscaling and upscaling on the unit’s HDMI output preserve color and spatial detail when converting content between 4K and 1080p for mixed-format presentation and display applications.
The OME-PS62’s integrated USB extension capabilities combine with compatible Omega Series transmitters and receivers to address the challenge of connecting between USB devices at remote locations, forming an ideal integration solution for use cases including software video conferencing and interactive displays. Additional integration convenience features include auto-switching, audio embedding and de-embedding; audio output matrix mixing; display control; microphone input with mixing and ducking; internal video test patterns for setup and troubleshooting; a customizable welcome splash screen; and the ability to remotely power Atlona HDBaseT devices via PoE.
These new introductions join other recently-unveiled Omega Series products in redefining AV for presentation and collaboration in today’s evolving audio-visual environments and meeting spaces.
AudioQuest PowerQuest 2 and PowerQuest 3 AC Power Filters
Designed by Garth Powell to the same exacting standards of all AudioQuest products, the new PowerQuest 2 ($199.95) and PowerQuest 3 ($299.95) AC power filters are packed with noteworthy performance features, including Non-Sacrificial Surge Protection, Linear (PQ2) and Ultra-Linear (PQ3) Filtering, and attached AudioQuest power cords with Directionally Optimized Concentric-Geometry conductors.
AudioQuest’s advanced filtration removes more noise and distortion than other similarly priced power products, while easily accommodating a wide range of audio/video systems. The PQ2’s Linear Filtration protects against common-mode noise, while the PQ3’s extended Ultra-Linear Filtration effectively offers twice the filtering capacity, protecting against both common-mode and differential-mode noise. The PQ3 offers eight application-optimized outlets in total: two 4K/8K video-optimized Ultra-Linear filter outlets, two High-Current outlets for amplification devices and powered speakers or subwoofers, and four Ultra-Linear filter outlets for source components. The slightly smaller PQ2 has six total outlets: one 4K/8K video-optimized Linear filter outlet, one High-Current, and four Linear.
Both PowerQuest products boast safety features found in AudioQuest’s far more expensive Niagara Series, including Non-Sacrificial Surge Protection and Extreme Voltage Shutdown. And in a nod to today’s dynamic, hyperconnected electronics environment, convenience features include signal-line protection (phone, network, cable/satellite in the PQ3; cable/satellite only in the PQ2) and high-speed USB charging ports (four in the PQ3; two in the PQ3). Finally, thanks to their slim, compact design, the PowerQuest units can be placed in a rack, stood upright on a floor, or mounted onto a wall.
“With the PowerQuest, everything opened up, as if the music was set free to roam wherever the hell it wanted… The music sounded more immediate, better defined, and more compelling.”—Michael Lavorgna, TwitteringMachines.com

SI Adds 6 New Easy Ways to Become a Shade Dealer Nationally
Six months after quietly launching their innovative Nano indoor and Zen outdoor roller shade lines, the aptly named Screen Innovations (SI) today formally announced the full national rollout of both lines. In addition to national onboarding of dealers, SI is also making it simple to become an authorized dealer with six easy ways for to get onboard.
“Dealers demand to get in the shade business quickly and affordably; that premise was paramount when we created our onboarding paths,” said Tom Cooley, COO of SI. Continuing he said, “Our joint focus on training and support is second to none, and we believe that getting the small details right drives success. We have created 6 simple programs to affordably bring on dealers without interrupting their daily businesses. We are tooled up and ready to scale!”
To support the ramp-up, SI recently doubled its Austin TX production footprint, adding enough space to scale for the next 5 years. In addition, they have installed high precision, high volume production machinery, facilitating fast order to shipment conversion. This will enable SI to deliver custom shades with unprecedented speed within the CEDIA channel.
For many integrators, success comes in the form of product innovation. SI promises not only product innovation, but also process innovation by combining the world of software and design tools with tactful demonstration assets, and thought-provoking product designs. “By driving these two stakes in the ground, long-term SI dealers will be big winners in the shade category,” said Cooley.
